Soundtrack to the Secular Age

Hey Everyone,

I thought that I'd post some links to the music mentioned in our secondary Smith text so that you can get a feel for what the author is talking about!

Arcade Fire:

                                          The Suburbs, The Suburbs (2010)
                                          (note: There is some violence towards the end of 
                                            music video. As an additional note, the music video
                                            was directed by Academy Award winner Spike

                                          Ready to Start, The Suburbs (2010)

                                          We Used to Wait, The Suburbs (2010)

Death Cab for Cutie:

                                          I Will Follow You Into the Dark, Plans (2005)

                                          Soul Meets Body, Plans (2005)

The Postal Service:

                                          Such Great Heights, Give Up (2003)

Fleet Foxes:

                                          White Winter Hymnal, Fleet Foxes (2008)

Garden State (Bonus*): 

                                          Trailer, Garden State (2004)

                                         "The Idea of Home is Gone," Garden State (2004)
                                         (note: The scene itself contains some language and 
                                          crude humor.)

*Because it was name-dropped in the Smith text on pg. 1


  1. The class isn't just going to open me up to new ways of thinking, it is going to expose me to a whole new genre of music.

  2. This one is also Arcade Fire from "The Suburbs," but I thought the tone fit well.

    Deep Blue - Arcade Fire


  3. Sorry I'm not as tech savvy as Andy. You'll actually have to copy and paste to hear it.
