“Stay Young, Go Dancing” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    Death Cab for Cutie’s Codes & Keys got a mixed reaction when it surfaced earlier this year, but that didn’t stop it reaching the heady heights of the No. 3 position on the Billboard 200. So Death Cab is more popular than ever it seems, and this performance of the closing Codes & Keys track “Stay Young, Go Dancing” offers a reason why. This is the kind of lightweight rock tune Ben Gibbard has gradually edged toward, one for the “pleasant but unremarkable” file that this band has seemed more and more at ease with over the years.
