How could this thread be complete without this song. The music is by Elbow, and Guy (the lead singer) is singing about a best friend of his who died.
The lyrics are so simple, referring to a playful 'shoulder charge' and that towards the end of his life he wouldn't have to pay in bars (I assume
everyone wanted to buy him drinks). The most prominent thing in this song is how he sings the simple words, "love you mate". You can hear his heart
breaking down. If you've ever lost someone, this song will make you tear up.
