If you were feeling bummed out today for any reason—we hear that Mercury just went into retrograde or something—this song will make you feel ten times worse. The National must have an extensive catalog of coldhearted womens in their past to fuel the fire on tunes like this, and almost every other one. "You Were A Kindness," despite the forgiving title, does not suggest reconciliation. All we're really curious about is who would be such an asshole to lead singer Matt Berninger?!? We'll punch them in the face.
