Patheticness of the Day

This really pretty, beautifully melodic, lovely song off Joe Purdy’s latest album is TOTALLY MAKING ME CRY. And the worst part is, it’s called “Ode to Sad Clown.”
COME ON NOW PEOPLE. It is an ode to a sad clown and the lyrics are totally making me cry. Can you get more pathetic and stereotypic than that? I think I better go to bed.
(Nonetheless, I assure you it is a good song. Regardless of the pathetic person listening to it.)
I used to hear the children play
used to hear the birds sing
one day they just stopped
and I don’t hear them anymore…
I got caught in this whistling wind
doin my best to regret these sins
Lord would you forgive me
if you know I’m gonna do it again
it’s not that I’m not sorry Lord,
it’s just that I’m not strong
Oh ’cause when that woman looks at me
I cant remember right from wrong…

Lyrics of the Afternoon

Not only does it have an awesome beeboppy ’60s feelin’ to it, but also there are a LOT of good lines in The Magnetic Fields “Too Drunk to Dream” (from Distortion, a pretty kickin’ album that sonically certainly lives up to its name) but here are three of my faves:
I’ve got to get too drunk to dream because I only dream of you.
I’ve got to get too pissed to miss you or I’ll never get to sleep.
I’ve got to get too fried to cry or I’ll be crying all night long.

Mmmm, making me thirsty.

Lyrics of the Day

If you were a wink, I’d be a nod…
If you were the floor, I’d wanna be the rug…
And if you were an ocean, I’d learn to float…

-“All I Want Is You” Barry Louis Pollsar from the Juno Sdtrk.
Great movie, great tunes. It’s a win-win.
If you haven’t seen this yet, or are letting some crap-ass review taint your willingness to go, go read this review. And then go, for pete’s sake. Pete would want you to.
When both me AND my dad are as equally gung-ho about a film (yes, sometimes we disagree), I don’t think there’s anything else you need to know. It’s THAT good.
