you will always have this demo. them recording an entire album worth of versions of this song wouldn't change that. I would love to hear a modern Arcade Fire version of it, hopefully keeping it stripped down. But I doubt it will ever happen. And it definitely won't have the perfect vibe that this version does.
Beautiful. Prior to tonight I always wanted a studio recording of this, but I think it would ruin the song for me. The old gramophone sounding orchestra at the end is just too perfect and nostalgic sounding.
