Modest Mouse - Missed the Boat

| Keith
Oh, and we carried it all so well
As if we got a new position
Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell
Saying, 'yes, this is a fine promotion.'
Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell

"Missed the Boat" from Modest Mouse's 2007 album We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank has all the hallmarks of a Modest Mouse song: quirky vocals, quirky lyrics, quirky pacing, quirky arrangement, etc. It also has a sentimental, melodic sound that strikes me as unique for them, and while I find many of their songs memorable, "Missed the Boat" is a standout in my mind.
