MONTREAL MIGHT EAT ITS YOUNG

This was somewhat touching. Relatable. Amazing. It’s called “This is the Dream of Win & Régine.” Guess who it’s about? It’s by Final Fantasy, and the title is obviously based on Dntel’s song “This is the Dream of Evan and Chan.” It’s a beautiful song and a beautiful video.

Here are the lyrics…

Crown myself the prince of buzz
Can’t wait until you, can’t wait ’til you unsubscribe
I’ll be a lonely scribe

But – what if they like it,
And lock us in a cannery with your accordian
Until we canned our love?
We can get along
We can get along

Montreal might eat its young
But Montreal won’t break us down

Now I got a VCR
If we put our hearts in twenty thousand tiny jars
They’d never leave their homes
We can get along
We can get along

Montreal might eat its young
But Montreal won’t break us down

I tried and tried and tried and tried
and tried and tried to keep the crowds away
I tried and tried and tried and tried
and tried and tried to keep the crowds away

regine

Should mention that the drums (+ additional vocals) aren’t in the original song, and that it probably sounds better without it. It sounds vaguely like this — but be sure to grab his album “Has A Good Home” when you have a chance. It’s gooood shit (as is “He Poos Clouds,” his second album).

(Found your site looking for recent Arcade Fire reviews, btw!)
