Not even kidding-received an unwelcome email from the equally divorced other party just as the song opened in the background... timing, RP..

Totally agree.
For some reason I marked this song as only a 9. Goes all the way to 10. Just like the volume when I listen to it.

I smoke, and when I sing along I try hard to breathe when he does in the neighborhood with tripping hazards bit. He has better lung capacity than I!! Must smoke a little less....

This sounds scratchy and mildly destructive in all the right ways. But then, I am still working on coffee this morning, so it could just be me.

Such a HUGE, mind blowing song - an instant classic to me. I feel like if I've known it for decades. That guitar/synth bridge, that huge sound, wow.

And yes: it's *really* worth it listening to the whole album from beginning to end. I didn't do it right away, but when I finally did, it really made a lasting impression on me.

A strong band I wouldn't know if not for RP. One more {#Clap}

Listened start to finish, it's the story of a relationship - from infatuation, to starry-eyed love, through temptation, and (via the eyes of others) the relationship's failure and regrets.  Superb.

Whoa! I just heard Big Sugar loud and clear, before I noticed that it was, in fact, Elbow. But, c'mon, although this may not be hallowed ground, this is definitely Big Sugar turf!

Hint, hint, Bill...

Guy Garvey has spent some time writing at Real World Studios ( owned by Gabriel ).
Elbow has covered "Mercy Street" by Peter Gabriel and Peter Gabriel has covered Elbow's "Mirrorball".

Still looking for the recipe for a cocktail called 'Grounds For Divorce' - closest I've come is from place in St. Louis:
"it's made from a base of Black Maple Hill Bourbon and amaro, vermouth, Campari, two kinds of bitters, and topped with a bloody maraschino cherry."  An English bloke wouldn't be having one of these in a Missouri bar, sorry.  *wink*

Bill was way ahead of the curve on Elbow.  I impressed my son in college several years ago as he had never heard of them. 
Awesome song and album.

"There's a hole in my neighborhood, down which of late I cannot help but fall." Often, Elbow's lyrics make my inner geeky English major grin.

Actually, I picked it because it's one my all time favourites, but which seems, undeservedly, to have fallen off most people's radar.

I've gotta say, I'm pleased for people who like Elbow.  They certainly vastly out number you and me.

I suppose I should try to understand the popularity of their music, but for me it'd be as gratingly miserable as sitting on the steel mesh steps of a mobile home in a sleet storm trying to admire the tenant's plastic flower collection.

Thank you Bill. Today's my birthday and I've been waiting for an Elbow song. Was hoping for One Day Like This, but this is another favorite. Thanks for making my night and turning me on to my favorite band, Elbow. RP is the best thing out there for music! {#Music}

  Perfect, considering I've heard "Crossroads" about a thousand times in my life and this only about twenty.
