Spoon, “The Way We Get By”

I think someone sent me this one. Britt sings the first chorus in his
trademark Spoon way. The guy has a pretty recognizable voice for
someone who sings without a noticeable accent: that is to say that he
has a phrasing that you can pick up when you hear him singing.

 ‘The Way We Get By’ is built on a piano riff and some other
instruments accompanying the keyboard. It could be a Ben Folds song if
it didn’t have the inimitable vocals. The lyrics don’t really
transport me, and it seems as if it needs a video or a string section
for me really to get into it.
