The National – “About Today” from the film “Warrior”

The National - "About Today" from the "Warrior" soundtrack
Wow, the things you can find online sometimes. “About Today” from The National first appeared on the Cherry Tree EP released in 2004. The studio version is very good. The live version on the 2008 Virginia EP will bring you to tears, it is that incredible.The fact the song is a part of the end scene for the movie “Warrior” simply takes things to an even more incredible level. What a clip, truly capable of bringing a man to tears.

Brendan Murphy, this is for you. Sorry for not making your show the other night.

Cheers,
Frank

      I agree. I love that song anyway, one of my faves from the band, but used in that context just blew me away.
