Steph, the projectionist, played "Naive Melody" for me three years ago and I flipped out. Final Fantasy covered it at least three times. The last time I played it was September 20, 2004, at the Deep Dark United CD release show at the Tranzac in Toronto.
The summer beforehand, Win stayed at Patrick's house and I played him the song. Me and Patrick went out for some groceries, when we came back, he was playing it on guitar. Shortly afterward, Arcade Fire started playing it live.
There was a double bill of Les Mouches and Arcade Fire in 2004, on June 24, at Lee's Palace. I played violin with Arcade Fire after the Les Mouches set. We ran through a few songs beforehand, and one of them was "Naive Melody". Me and Sara came up with an un-Talking Heads line at the end of the song, which you can hear us playing on the 7" recording almost a year later.
However, not knowing the Arcade Fire version of the song would ever be recorded, I co-opted that violin line in the recording of Has A Good Home. You can hear it at the end of "Furniture".
"Furniture" is, thus, a mishmash/ripoff of all three versions of "Naive Melody". Note the Tina Weymouth bassline, and the violin line sounding exactly like the opening keyboard line. Total rip-off.
Neat story Owen! I just went back and listened to Furniture, and wow, it's really there. Can't believe I didn't notice it before. Do you have something like Psycho Killer or Take Me To The River up your sleeve for your Canadian tour in September?

This is a very cool lyrical composition that helps you focus on understanding the words. I heard this soundtrack in Almost Mine. This film was based on the book freebooksummary.com/category/almost-maine and tells the story of love in an urban setting. I like these light romance stories.

It's funny how memory changes. I retold this story fairly recently, but completely reversed the order... I said that I'd recorded "Furniture" before introducing the same line into the Arcade Fire cover. I was wrong! Glad I keep a journal these days
