While lately I've been favoring Facebook as a social networking service, MySpace is still tops due to its music players—especially when you stumble upon gems like Nurses' "Technicolor." Lyrically, the four-minute song is a yellow brick road to the past, and there's some magic in the piano playing. "Technicolor" is a lot like a carnival—something sinister may be just around the corner even as a sense of dreaminess prevails. Maybe this is the missing song from the movie soundtrack of Big Fish
, as it'd sync perfectly with the scene where Ewan McGregor's character freezes time at the circus, walking through kernels of mid-air popcorn and mid-toss hoops.
