Listen to SAY GOODNIGHT TO THE LADY by The Pernice Brothers.
Another group that holds to their aesthetic. I don't have the critical energy to define just what it is the Pernice Brothers are about (pick up a back issue of the Big Takeover for that, right Philip?). But it's almost captured by this chorus: "We were happy / we were sad."
I would change it to "We sound happy / but we are sad." Fixed.
