here is a trick to getting even more enjoyment out of The Gaslight Anthem... if there is ever an odd lyric, then you know it is a refernce to something... in this case Brian is talking about a song called Jacob Marley's Chain sung by Aimee Man.

Thanks...most of them I'm getting but sometimes the language-barrier just stands in the way!

I would tell you more about the song, but really you should listen to Aimee Mann, so get on iTunes and get her CD called Whatever

So just in case people didn't realize it, this song is all about a friend's funeral.

When I first heard this song live, I was all pumped up, I did not realize what they were singing about, and then when I heard the recorded version I realized it was about a funeral. It is very similar to Against Me!'s "Pints of Guinness" in that it sounds like a good mood song, but is actually very depressing

ok, I was wrong. Marley's Chains are not a reference to Aimee Man...

after I typed that email my wife saw the computer and said that Jacob Marley is the first ghost that comes to see Scrooge in A Christmas Carol and warns him that he is on the same path as him and will be condemened to walk around earth and/or hell watching others but unable to interact all the while having to drag a chain made up of money boxes of the people they screwed over...

i really wish they put a real "b-side" on it, instead of another album song.
