the hold steady - hot fries

does anyone have an mp3 of the song 'hot fries' by the hold steady?

i've entered the search 'hot fries hold steady mp3' into google maybe once a week for the last year or so. there's just one broken link and pages with the lyrics.

i remember it was available for download from their myspace page about a year ago, but it was at a time when i didn't have my own computer to download it onto. then it disappeared.

i will paypal american dollars or english pounds or post you something or whatever you want in return for you emailing me this mp3.

here is a video of them playing it live:


wow. someone emailed it to me. thank you. i didn't think anyone would actually email it to me. i feel like my faith in the human race has been restored. that sounds sarcastic, but i'm being honest. i'm listening to it right now for the third time. if anyone wants me to email them the mp3, i will happily do so. i think i'm going to turn my gmail 'signature' to an attachment of 'hot fries'. i feel indebted and excited. thank you, thank you.

I've not heard this track before. If it works Chris could you send it to me? Are you going to see them at academy 1 on 30th Sept?

I can't seem to find a link to your e-mail but I wanted to request that, provided you still have it, you e-mail me an mp3 of "Hot Fries". I'm trying to make a Hold Steady B-sides compilation so that fans can access out-of-print (and often not even iTunes available) songs. I'm having trouble tracking down:

1. Milkcrate Mosh
2. Curves and Nerves
3. Hot Fries
4. Modesto Is Not That Sweet
5. You Gotta Dance (With Whoever You Came With)

If you have any of those other ones also they would be much-appreciated. Hopefully I can make it so everyone has access to these hard to find (but great) songs.

hassertime - I've got every single Hold Steady song but Milkcrate Mosh, Curves and Nerves & Hot Fries...

Is there any way you could get them to me too? I found this blog through desperate creative Googling, when I realized that they were the only ones that I didn't have, hahaha.
