Where Does The Good Go :: Tegan and Sara

OK, so I know Meghan just posted a song by Tegan and Sara a few days ago and I know that there are millions of songs out there that I could post instead of this one, in the interest of musical diversity. But friends, I am absolutely and wholly obsessed. I went to Tegan and Sara's Columbus, OH concert this past Monday night and had fantastic time. Not only was Northern State (See Brenda's earlier blog entry) the opener, but the show was at the Newport, a historic rock hall in Cbus and it was PACKED with hundreds of screaming lesbians and Chuck Taylor-sporting emo guys. At any rate, while I knew a few Tegan and Sara songs prior to Monday, I was not entirely familiar with much of their music, so I spent some time Monday afternoon "prepping" myself for the big night.

While sitting in my cubicle at OSU and cruising the internet for free music, I came across this live performance of Tegan and Sara's song, "Where Does the Good Go." The performance is entirely acoustic - no mics even, but the video is steady and the sound is good. After hearing this version, I went hunting for the original electric version of the song, which although also fantastic, I don't like as well as this particular unplugged take. The video of the song, found at is also great because it includes some quirky commentary by the ladies themselves - before (and during - haha) the song. I love it. Check the harmonies. Tight as hell. Plus, it's an awesome break-up song :-)

Link to the video:

"Where Does the Good Go"
Where do you go with your broken heart in tow
What do you do with the left over you
And how do you know, when to let go
Where does the good go, where does the good go

Look me in the eye and tell me you don't find me attractive
Look me in the heart and tell me you won't go
Look me in the eye and promise no love's like our love
Look me in the heart and unbreak broken, it won't happen

It's love that leaves and breaks the seal of always thinking you would be
Real, happy and healthy, strong and calm, where does the good go
Where does the good go

Where do you go when you're in love and the world knows
How do you live so happily while I am sad and broken down
What do you say it's up for grabs now that you're on your way down
Where does the good go, where does the good go

Peace out,
