I was on ITunes the other day trying to figure out which was better: The styrofoam remix or the original.

I bought both. :D

Cute song. I think the goalie reference was a testament of how he did not want her to leave and how he would do what it takes to make it work but she wasn't having it. His vision on marriage is not sitting well with her either nor is she willing to forgive him. She continues to show no remorse as it is much easier for her to go to her better company and simply says to him your heart wont heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures patronizing the fact that she just broke his heart!

Of Monsters and Men+Death Cab for Cutie= Nothing Better... I really wish the ending of this song was different, still very meaningful

I think lacrosse would be the only game I can think of where a goalie would tend the net in the 3rd quarter.

Epic.

But yeah, it's periods in hockey, not quarters, but the line wouldn't have flowed as well, so I can deal with it.

Three periods. Not three quarters (3/4)

Spectacular song.
As to the goalie reference, I'm pretty sure Ben is talking about hockey, which is played during three quarters.

Goalies tending the net? Soccer is played in halves not quarters.

To the Ben Gibbard haters - there is a reason he is an indie rock icon and you are all just some nameless people online.

God, if you're a glutton for punishment over a break-up this is the song for you...it represents the perfect words that we wish we could all use during a fight/break- u p . . . y e a h it's depressing, but it's such a great song...There isn't a way to define this awesome song except that it'll choke you up more often than not! I agree with jaykarischum a n that it's the best Postal Service song.
