Playlist: Arcade Fire

I heard of Arcade Fire back in 2004, my sophomore year of high school from my English teacher Joe Flood. He noticed how I wore t-shirts of bands nobody else in class really ever listened to. So, one day while we were working on our papers he came over to my desk and knelt beside me and started asking me if I listened to bands such as Radiohead etc. I said yes and he left me there to work on my paper. When the bell rang he stopped me before I walked out of the door and handed me a cd that he was burning during class. He told me he thought I would really enjoy the band and went on about how they won a Grammy, but how no one really watched the grammys or something along those lines, haha. Anyways, I went home and listened to it and I couldn't stop. That album made a big impact on me that I can't even describe. If you haven't listened to it in its entirety, or at all then here you go. It is truly wonderful.

Ps This same teacher graduated from Harvard before he came to teach at my school and went on to write this book
Hes pretty awesome. Anyways, heres the playlist. Enjoy! :)
