Today marks the 10th anniversary of the great Blackout of 2003 that sent much of eastern Canada and the U.S into darkness for days.
In commemoration of the notorious blackout, we've compiled a video gallery playlist of the best power outage-themed songs from David Bowie's "Blackout" and Arcade Fire's "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)" to Death Cab's "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" and Black Key's "When The Lights Go Out."
And the best part is you can play this trip down (an unlit) memory lane without worrying about running out of batteries!
Arcade Fire - "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)"
"I woke up with the power out, not really somethin' to shout about... I went out into the night, I went out to find some light... You ain't foolin' nobody--with the lights out! And the power's out in the heart of man, take it from your heart put it in your hand"
Florence + The Machine - "No Light, No Light"
"No light, no light in your bright blue eyes I never knew daylight could be so violent A revelation in the light of day You can't choose what stays and what fades away"
Death Cab For Cutie - "I Will Follow You Into The Light"
"I'll follow you into the dark... No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white Just our hands clasped so tight Waiting for the hint of a spark"
