Song of the Day and 249 Other Songs You Need to Hear from the 2000s

"We've Been Had" is a song that I feel in love with from the first time I heard it at the beginning of the decade. The song begins with a glimmering piano vamp that gently eases itself into the mix and is complemented by jangly guitars amid sparse drumming and bass. Hamilton Leithauser's nostalgic lyrics delivered like a manic Bob Dylan complete the picture establishing the song as an instant classic. The song comes from The Walkmen's 2002 debut full-length Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone.

We've Been Had - The Walkmen

It is the track I had been listening to most as of late that is also featured in my article 250 Songs You Need to Hear From the 2000s which can be found at Decoymusic. Read the article and listen to some great tunes from this excellent decade in music!
