What are the top 10 most songs on your media player (iTunes,etc...)
Additional points for including sample lyrics from each song.
Here are mine:
1) Tool - Vicarious
Credulous at best, Your desire to believe in Angels in the hearts of men.
2) Sia- Breathe Me
Ouch I have lost myself again,
lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
3) Damien Rice - 9 Crimes
Leave me out with the waste
This is not what i do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
4) Susumu Yokota - Kodomatachi
5) Ben Folds Five - Brick
For the moment we're alone
Now I know it
6) Counting Crows - Raining in Baltimore
There's things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
7) Radiohead - There There
We are accidents waiting to happen.
Dinosaur Jr - Thumb
There never really is a good time
There's always nothing much to say
Pretty good not doing that fine
Getting up most every day
9) Finn Brothers - Only Talking Sense
he is religion
he won't hear me when I cry for help
he has a vision of me
but I am somebody else
10)Pixies - Where is my mind?
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah.
Let's see. Songs about death, loss, abortion, infideility, being alone and losing your mind...
The only non-dismal song on the list is Susumu Yokota - Kodomatachi, but that's an instrumental, so who knows if it's happy or sad? If you ask the artist, it could be about a puppy farm that burned to the ground.
IT doesn't get much lighter. The bottom half of the "Top 25 Listened To" list is full of System of the Down, Atari Teenage Riot and more Tool.
With a playlist like this, it's a wonder that ANY of my comics are lighthearted or funny.
