As boring as it is to watch fireworks on television, last nights coverage of Sydney’s NYE celebrations did have one saving grace.. they played “No Cars Go” by Arcarde Fire!

I first heard the song when it was used in a promo for Top Gear, and have been totally enamored by it ever since, listen to the song in its entirety below:

Yeah, that’s a good song. But my favourite of their’s is ‘Cold Wind’ which was specially made for my favourite programme: Six Feet Under.

Damn, 74 MB for the flash version? Is it possible to have a smaller file for the flash version, my internet connection is not so great, and to watch it smoothly I would have to pause the clip at the start and, keeping the window open, wait 20 min. I would download the Quicktime/iPod version but Quicktime lags on my Windows machine (I wish I had a Mac!)

Jon K. have you tried VLC Media Player for Quicktime? Rather than Quicktime Player aka the bloated piece of junk.

Thanks for the tip! Tried playing it with VLC Media Player and it worked a treat. Wish I knew about VLC before, QuickTime used to always give me headaches

Does anyone know if the music they play on the broadcast is also played on the ground where most of the people are? The fireworks seem to be in sync with the music but I’m not too sure.

And also, don’t forget to vote for this song in the Triple J Hottest 100 –

I’m looking foreward for this years NYE fireworks.

Will this years fireworks also placed here online? I hope so!
