Last week, I posted my 200 favourite songs of the decade, thus far. Today, I'm going to reveal my favourite song of the decade. That would be Arcade Fire's Wake Up from their excellent Funeral album.
I first shared this song back in August 2005, calling it "my favourite cut on the disc" while promising it would "blow your mind". Admit it, I was right. I would later crown it my favourite song of 2005.
Today I crown it my favourite song of the decade. Here it is used masterfully in the new high def trailer for Where the Wild Things Are.
