The Video - Spoon's "The Way We Get By"

you bought a new bag of pot, said 'let's make a new start'

A magnificent moment from the wonderful Kill the Moonlight LP from, erm .... 2002,

Two thousand and fucking two? ... I don't believe it!

Yap, it's Britt's beautiful bijou  "The Way We Get By". A thing as fresh sounding today as it was all those years back.

A tale of outsiders who get high in back seats of cars and break into mobile homes, it's a humorous witty slice of existential angst with lots of Elvis Costello echoes. 

And lots of wonderful ivory tinkling!

And a nice nod to a seminal Stooges song in the line "fall in love to Down on the Street" !
