submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#68 "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight," Postal Service (Sub Pop)

The first PS track to reel me in like a gateway drug, this starts out so quietly, so discreetly, before bursting into a twisted love letter to DC, with one of the year's finest lyrics (and they're peppered all over Give Up):

"I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving."

Lover's laments don't come much sadder, or more cutting.
