Heard said song at a Fountains of Wayne show on Friday and found myself getting all misty. I don't know what it is, but something about it kills me every time.
Apparently, I'm not the only one. Over at YouTube, some pseudonymous poster notes:
"It's so funny!!! my favorite bands are Ozzy, Lamb of God, Kataklysm, Amon Amarth, and Black Label Society and yet I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!"
Bottom line: Adam Schlesinger is a frickin genius.
