This sounds good...but I didn't realize until now that Neutral Milk Hotel's song "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" is a complete rip-off of this song haha (although it is a good rip-off).

Hello? Anyone there? It's been quite a few years hasn't it....
Well anyway, this song is quite nice- and it's nice having someone from the past work it out for you.
