Arcade Fire According to a Four-Year Old: Jack's Brief Analysis of "No Cars Go"

We were in the car when Arcade Fire's "No Cars Go" came on. Jack decided to really listen to it and gave a running commentary--while making his stuffed puppy dance. Here are some of the highlights.

Their cars are not going. I wonder why.

Hmm, Daddy, I think I know why their cars won't go. They are old fashioned and will not run anymore.

They have planes, too! And trains!

I guess their trains are old fashioned, too, since they are not going.

I hope they sing about semi-trucks next.

(Humming) Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm. Geesh, is this song still going?

Is it over yet? No? (More humming) Hmmm, hmmm.

Okay, can we listen to "Orange Blossom Special," now?

And in case you do not know the song he was listening to.
