Wish I had been there ...

Broken Social Scene is a collective of amazing Canadian artists, including Amy Millan of Stars, Emily Haines of Metric and Leslie Feist of herself. Anthems for a seventeen-year-old-girl is an bitchin' song, I think their best. They performed it at Lollapalooza in Chicago last summer. Based on virtually every review I found it was THE HIGHLIGHT of the festival, and an especially rare occurence since all the members are pretty much never available to play together. Well, after nearly a year of searching here it is (apologies because this takes a LOOOOOOONNNNNNGGG time to load even with high-speed Net):




Used to be one of the rotten ones and I liked you for that.

Now you're all gone got your make-up on and you're not coming back.
Can't you come back?

Bleaching your teeth, smiling flash, talking trash, under your breath.

Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me.
