This is a classic emo anthem. Gotta love Ben Gibbard but man beware this song will either put you into a deep sleep or deep dark depressive state. Better as background music, dont focus too hard while smoking.

Another nice submission, thanks Sean. Ben Gibbard is always welcome here. Note from the submitter: “I didn’t think I’d be a fan of death cab, but I heard this song on sirius while toking up in the car, and was just so moved, and got lost in my head for a good while.”
This is another version of that original hit The Dream of Evan and Chan. This is a great remix of the song that’s fit for summer time driving. Also very satisfyingly long.
This is a really trippy track and always sits well with a good contemplative and vegetative high One of those songs that either you get it or you dont.
The Postal Service is what effectively sent me off into independent music. Before I heard them I listened to mostly mainstream things that were heard on the radio or anything my friends sent me. Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello (of DNTEL) created a sound that resonated with me in a way that you can only listen and reflect on. I chose this song just because I heard it recently in the trailer for Funny People with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen… which I personally think looks mildly entertaining… if that. But Funny People also happens to be the name of the coffee shop where I smoked for the first time when I went to Amsterdam. The latter outweighs.
This is like my all time favorite stoner song. This song came to me in the winter of 2005 I believe and I just fell in love with it because I was listening to a lot of Ben Gibbard, Death Cab and Postal Service. Sit back, relax, close your eyes and smoke.
