Prefix notes that it's been ten years since Interpol released its great debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, which means it's a fine time to reflect on our pasts through the prism of Paul Banks's lyrics. Or something.

I'd rather just revisit that album than think about high school, though, so today's 12 O'Clock Track is "Say Hello to the Angels," one of my favorite cuts from Turn on the Bright Lights.

I took to "Say Hello to the Angels" in part because of the dramatic buildup into the chorus, which still sounds great a decade after I first heard it. Listen below and remember a time before bassist Carlos D left Interpol to pursue filmmaking, or something.
