I discovered Death Cab For Cutie’s new song You Are A Tourist this morning and have been listening to it repeatedly while working on a writing project.

When I first heard the line, “there’s a burning in your heart,” I thought it was, “there’s a party in your heart.” Our parakeet Shirley sings wildly while this song plays so I couldn’t hear the line properly, but I like my misinterpretation better than the original anyway. There’s obviously a party in her heart while singing along to this. Birds are as particular as we humans are in their musical preferences. She doesn’t sing along with any of the other songs on the new Death Cab For Cutie album. Neither do I, as it turns out.

Here’s a video of the song:
