The Contenders: Page 2

21 Company Calls
22 For What Reason
23 A Movie Script Ending

This song captures some form of lost nostalgia... Maybe longing for something that isn't there? It's sad but really happy at the same time. Damn it

24 Meet Me on the Equinox
25 St. Peter's Cathedral

So bleak, yet so beautiful. These lyrics make me cry every time.

Great song - deserves to be higher

26 Codes and Keys
27 Company Calls Epilogue

If you haven't gone back and listened to this early death cab album, you have missed out so much. Definitely their best album, and this song is the absolute highlight of the album

30 No Joy In Mudville
31 Your Bruise
32 Cath....

How is this song at no 30? I voted for this because this song deserves to be in at least top five. Listen to the song and you will know.

This song makes you feel things! You can listen to it on repeat for days and call it an emotional experience in itself

33 Passenger Seat

Such a shame for this beautiful song to be so low on the list. Makes me teary every time

34 Pictures In an Exhibition
35 Your New Twin Sized Bed

This song will always be my favorite, No matter how many times I listen to it, the same two thoughts race in my head. Oh my gosh I love this song, and When will this song end so I can listen to it again!

36 Long Division
37 Little Wanderer

So underrated, but beautiful lyrics. Almost reminds me of marching bands.

Best song ever

38 The New Year
39 Bixby Canyon Bridge

Brilliant song! It really conveys the raw emotions of confusion, anger, and sorrow as it plays out. One of my favorite lyrics of all time is "When everyone you meet, they all seem to be asleep." The power with which that line is sung combined with the constant guitar beat gets me every time! Totally deserves Top 10 at THE LEAST.

I cannot believe this song didn't make it even to the extended list! A beautiful song, with typical DCFC highs-and-lows, with the lyrics painting a picture open to each one's interpretation. Beautiful!
