I CAN'T BELIEVE IT


lucs28

LIFE IS SUCH A FUNNY JOURNEY


StrokeJuicyJuice

PSYCHEDELIC


Ryuhza

THIS IS THE ELEVENTH track on Comedown Machine


CrazyDude10528

Holy shit after 8 years they finally played this.


rickrique

thanks im crying


Slashycent

If they keep implementing Comedown Machine tracks into their setlists I might actually have no choice than to make the journey to Berlin next year to see em lol. This is gorgeous. Finally.


Yallblewa3-1lead

I love how self aware they are that they know this song is a favorite from CM.


imhigherthanyou

I mean it was top 5 on their Spotify for quite some time


cottagecheeseboy

Is he singing the chorus with his chest voice? Either way he sounds pretty damn good for arguably one of the toughest sections in their discography


anujbeatles

Sounds like falsetto to me


megamando

He has that really fluttery wide vibrato when he does falsetto at the end of notes, so I’m pretty sure that’s what he is using cuz he has that all throughout the chorus.


musicstan7

He’s leaning into his mix, i think his voice cracking probs tend to happen when he goes for straight chest so it’s good that his newer songs call for mix, much more consistent


Electrical_Judge_660

Awesome!!!!!!


thegreyicewater

Can we has Tap Out now? 🥺👉👈


MONSTERSINTHEPAROSOL

Never did I think I would see the day


Malaxage918

Love that they finally played it live but does seem a bit strange as a show opener. However, I will take what I can get


Legitimate-Poetry848

I thought it was symbolic since it's the last song of *Comedown Machine* where the Strokes almost stopped their time. Finally we got it as if it was their missing link. We will go on to the next chapter w/ *The New Abnormal*.


psuedo_individual

Love this explanation for it


noodles3699

I think it makes perfect sense - it's a little bit of a teaser, it eases you into things and gets you excited for the prospect of more.


miphasmom

This is also a song I’ve seen them play the recording for over the speakers as the show starts and the band walk on stage.


Anberlin_

Knew it was gonna be a kickass show once they finished this song.


myfajahas400children

16-year-old me who clutched his Comedown Machine CD and waited all of 2013 for a tour announcement is elated right now!


fiftyf00tqueenie

Omg <3


Legitimate-Poetry848

Great view w/ beautiful lighting!


ClarkeBrower

Did they start the show with this???


letourbillon9

Yep!


syl2013

It was awesome!!


StrokeJuicyJuice

I moved from LA to Japan last month. FML


Slashycent

Welcome to Japan.


StrokeJuicyJuice

Was WAITING for this comment


writer80s

Now I need Slow Animals live


MagiicMuffiin

Wow thanks for posting both my videos! It was such a surreal experience to be there and witness this song! Can’t wait to see them again next time they come back to LA


letourbillon9

I’m so glad you captured these beautiful moments! I’m extremely grateful!


MagiicMuffiin

No problem! Glad I was able to contribute and get more people to experience the songs!


jxsvs

This is nuts


drumsporfavor

i thought it was a strange way to open but once they started it was just beautiful. what a night.


buttheyfoundme

i can die now


EdenPacifier

Dat outro is nuts


Arsyn786

It’s been 8 goddamn years


lDefiant

to witness this live was way too special. comedown machine and specifically this song hold a special place in my heart in general


Haddle

I feel the exact same way. It’s one of my absolute favorite songs of theirs and I’m so grateful I got to see them perform it live for the first time.


LuisJCasablancas

what once seemed to be the song that would never be played live has now been lifted off the depths of their discography and is being given the spotlight. I'm very happy :)


noodles3699

holy shit


MindArchaeologist

What a start! Amazing.


M_I_S_T_A_H-J

Oh hell yes! Fucking love this song. I was so disappointed initially when I couldn’t find a live performance and then **boom** my prayers have been answered!


martymcflied_

THIS IS SICK!


KeegoTheWise

that was... actually way better than i expected it to be! love it!


gayboycarti

oh my god this is crazy


gd803

oh my god this is beautiful


[deleted]

I am so sad I missed this and really, really hope they keep performing it.


maribocharova

I am so jealous


CharlyBGood1

Oh, thanks for the post! Today I can be happy !! haha


drewpool

What’s Nick playing? I see it’s some keyboard thing but can’t tell what he’s doing


xinfinitejesterx

TO me this, confirms EDIT: that the lyrics posted everywhere for this song are completely wrong


xinfinitejesterx

its: "Having a Hard Time watching you" not "I made up more time watching you"


lucs28

Yep, was already obvious on the studio version


xinfinitejesterx

i thought so too. didn't stop casual listeners from perpetuating disinformation.


RuralRasta

I hear guitar, but I'm just wondering, do they have people playing cellos or something?


ChudGuitar

His voice sounds great here.


talltyson

The live debut was actually in Atlanta last Sunday was also the first song
