This is quite nice. But, being a (U.S.) Georgian, we have a ridiculously high bar for the harmonizing stuff (think Mike Mills to Mikey Stipe). So it's just rather... nice.

Love this and Snow Patrol, one of the best live bands I've seen in a long time!

There's a number of young girls nowadays here in Mexico singing on that style. But Martha has better songs and lyrics :)

Yay for playing this song! For me, it's one of those stop-everything-and-listen songs.

Martha Wainwrights' voice makes this piece work remarkably well. There is something special about the blend of her voice in the mix. I recognize the voice from the few songs I have heard, but this is a different sound. I approve.

Just love this song, something about the tension that the music creates and the amazing vocals - I have been known to listen to this song several times in a row. Just gorgeous.

I'm always left wishing this song went to another level...seems like it COULD, just didn't. Still nice...but left wanting more.

I came to this more as a Martha Wainwright fan than a Snow Patrol devotee. Either way I think the previous poster has it correct. This is oddly lush and moving.

I only like this song when I hear its chorus taken out of context — and the rest is dull, goes no where. Sorry Martha!

Yeah, this Snow Patrol group sounds pretty decent. What's that other tune they had sort of a hit with? I don't think it's on this album.

A few months ago there was a radio commercial here where some Ross Perot sound-alike offered up this folksy homily - "you can throw a porcupine in a wood chipper, but that don't make maple syrup".

I'm not sure what that one meant either, but it cracked me up.
 
If you look up the word 'wainwright', you may learn a word that once probably was understood by any English speaker.
