POST #43: The Best Song of the Decade?

I decided to limit my 00s song list to songs from 2000-2004, which was a good idea. But were I to include the whole decade, there’s no doubt in my mind that the number one track would be “The Mariner’s Revenge Song” by The Decemberists, a sprawling, 8 minute and 46 second long tale of piratey goodness.

As for the A Practical Handbook DVD, it’s basically worth it just to see them perform this track. If you can’t appreciate the brilliance of this song, then I suspect you and I can’t be friends.
