Inside the music: Such Great Heights

Joe writes:

This song is a relatively new one to Paula and me. Maybe you’ve heard it:

Hear that cool keyboard music in the background? It’s actually the opening to one of the greatest love songs we’ve heard in a while. Shame on UPS for distorting it. It’s almost as awful as a cruise liner using a song about heroin addiction to sell vacations.

Here’s the real song, “Such Great Heights,” by The Postal Service.

What else can I say? Of course it’s on our wedding CD, because the lyrics are perfect. “I am thinking it’s a sign / that the freckles in our eyes / are mirror images and when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned.” That’s the first line. Are you kidding me? That line alone makes me wanna make out. And I’m a dude. It’s a perfect little song that talks about how great it is to be in love, and how others can’t bring us down.
