If I had to settle on one track the Guardian had missed out so far: About Today by The National

The National are no where near as widely appreciated as they should be, but but for me their most devastating track about love is the bleakly haunting 'About Today':

Today, you were far away
And I, didn't ask you why
What could I say?
I was far away
You just walked away
And I just watched you
What could I say?

How close am I to losing you?

Tonight, you just close your eyes
And I just watch you
slip away

How close am I to losing you?

Hey, are you awake?
Yeah, I'm right here
Well can I ask you
About today
How close am I to losing you?
How close am I to losing?
