I actually meant to link to this version, but they're both good.

Not as sad as these.

Cool- I've had this song/video for a few years now. I can't remember where I saw it- maybe it was here, or maybe em411.com, but it's certainly fantastic.

Such a nice video.

Also a double, but an old one and I don't really see any harm if this one stays.

Sadder still, that it's a double.

i'm beginning to think that metafilter has really bad taste in music...far too emo/crunchy/collegiate...i think we should start seeing other people.

Emo and crunchy? Or is that crunchy as in "hippy-dippy"?

The video for this one is also very cool. Neat to see someone doing something different video.

The album "The Turn" is available on iTunes, includes this song in mp3 and video.

I have loved this song for what seems a long time now. It is beautiful, so sad and so joyful. Simplicity.

Maybe the root beer has gone to my head, but part of this song sounds awfully reminiscent of the refrain from a-ha's "Take on Me"

I would like this if it were about the pleasant music, or about the creative videography.

Unfortunately, it seems to be about this guy's face.
