Arcade Fire – We Used To Wait (2010)

YouTube – Amazon – iTunes

Arcade Fire

Wonderful as this song is, I would have probably selected the title track of The Suburbs if it was not for one of the most acclaimed pieces of social media to date. Wilderness Downtown uses Google Maps, Google Street View and HTML5 to create an interactive video for Arcade Fire’s wistful ‘We Used To Wait’. Do punch in your (US zip/) post code or London (Parliament Sq.) childhood address and take a musical tour of your hometown and, of course, the opportunity to write a note to your younger self.
