Favorite Songs of the 2010s # 10 “The Suburbs” by Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire

The Suburbs


From album The Suburbs


The title and opening track to Arcade Fire’s excellent 2010 album The Suburbs. A wistful song about growing up and not know what to do. Win Butler’s piano and vocals are backed up by Arcade Fire numerous members but none of them ever take the focus away and complement him perfectly. Regine Chassagne’s high backing vocals blend in with the instrumentation but are vital. Arcade Fire’s latest material may not be mind blowing like their earlier work but let’s not forget just how good that music is.
