Subjects for further review: "Ice of Boston" by The Dismemberment Plan

The singer tries to pass it off, but there's a very certain poignancy, beauty and sadness to this tale of an all-too-solo New Year's Eve. Fortunately, the twin-guitar attack of the song's chorus backs it up firmly. But for all of its pouring-champagne-on-my-naked-body and commentaries-on-Gladys-Knight-and-the-Pips-lyrics, this is still a sad song, one that gets me right here.
