    "Gold Rush" originated as a demo that the band planned to discard, but was revisited at the suggestion of producer Rich Costey and combined with another demo. The song was written by Ben Gibbard as "a requiem for a skyline," inspired by the rapid changes to Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, where Gibbard had lived for 20 years and some areas were "almost unrecognizable" due to the influx of workers for companies like Amazon. Fun trivia: The song makes use of a sample from "Mind Train," a song from Yoko Ono's 1971 album Fly. It's also performed in the key of F major, has a BPM of 80, and the title is mentioned 46 times throughout the song. https://bit.ly/3vzrHUC
