14 June 2013 - Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out

I couldn't tell you when I first heard this song.  I know it is indispensable for me now.

The song starts off very guitar-heavy, and somewhat light musically.  Lyrically, it's about shooting someone, so not so light.  But then, about 50 seconds in, the song, while remaining guitar-heavy, adds a heavy drum and bass piece.  And the tempo and feel of the song changes strongly, and not to the lighter.  It's a well constructed song, and I like how it so seamlessly changes like that after such a long time.  There's a third change, which goes more to the jangle-pop sound that is so core to the band.
