You Call 911. Tell Them I’m Having A Fantastic Time.

And repeat after me with your heart: I no longer need you to fuck me as hard as I hated myself. Arkem: My favourite part is that little laugh in the background. Me: Right? This song is weird and awesome and really spoken word poetry with a musical accompaniment. You should listen to it now.

I Had the Time of My Life Fighting Dragons With You

There is no official video clip for this song. Which means I’m totally justified in giving you this one instead.* I still remember this moment In the back of my mind The time we stood with our shaking hands The crowds in stands went wild / And the cynics were outraged Screaming, ‘This is absurd!’ Cause for […]

I Can’t Help All the Hell that I’m Raising

This song is hilarious if you turn it up really loud and imagine Jim Kirk is singing it. As this was the way I was introduced to it I have no ability to hear it any other way. I’m the captain of this ship so / Come on climb into my golden cockpit   

Her Evaluation of My Cowboy Reputation Had Me Begging For Salvation All Night Long

A while back, on a day when I was sick and this song had only recently been added to this playlist, I played it very loudly and shouted along (because when you’re sick bad jokes are funnier and if it’s loud enough you can’t hear how hoarse your voice is). I then quoted it here […]

The Word You’re Looking For is: Fandom!*

This is not the next song in the playlist. Although, you know, it probably should be on it. I’ll get back to that, cause it probably deserves its own post. This post is about this video. Which is a special brand of awesome. If you want to check out all the credits for this (and […]

Show Me the Back Door

When I first heard this song I really wanted to change the chord progression at the end of the chorus because it sounded wrong to me. Now I can’t even figure out what exactly I wanted to change, let alone how. I still think the musical interludes are too long though. Despite that, I love […]

I Told Him I Got a Plan and I’m Gonna Dominate

This song isn’t in any of my writing playlists but it’s been aggressively stuck in my head for a couple of weeks now so I’m going to share it with you in the hopes that doing so will exorcise it. The video is… unabashedly trashy. I sort of want to say you shouldn’t watch it, […]

Whether You’re High or Low

I’ve become freakishly fond of mashups recently. There’s something about the way a remix will drop the beat or pick up the tempo that tweaks songs in a way that makes me smile. In this instance a song that’s less than five years old and one that’s nearly fifty years old turn into something kinda […]

She Said It’s All Gonna End And It Might As Well Be My Fault

This song is weird and I don’t know what the video means. But it feels lost and confused in the middle of the night and that’s about right for this book, so… She said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat She’s always worried about things like that / And she only sleeps […]

Love the Way You Think, But I Hate the Way You Act

This song is all weird metaphors and mellow tuneage. I like it until I start to think about it too much and then I start to read consent issues into the lyrics that are… probably not there? Maybe not there? I don’t know. Overthinking song lyrics rarely gets you anywhere. Now I love to feel […]
