You: perfect, unattainable, batshit crazy.
Me: in a band, lyrically gifted, aesthetically averse to vanilla.
Did I imagine it, or did you also feel that might make a fun playlist?
I have received complaints that the last playlist post had far too much writing in it. So you know what? No more writing after this paragraph. This is a no-justifications playlist. But – if you like it this way, leave a comment, so I’ll know.
Edited to add: I changed my mind so there will be more writing.
“Eurotrash Girl” – Cracker
This epic journey in search of the ideal woman resembles a one-man reenactment of the movie Eurotrip
“Short Skirt, Long Jacket” – Cake
Remember when Lucy Liu posed as an efficiency expert in a black leather business suit in Charlie’s Angels? That’s the girl Cake is looking for.
“Next Girl” – The Black Keys
This song’s greatness pales in comparison with the video for it. Watch it. There is a dinosaur puppet.
“Broken Heart” – Black Lab
These guys made a girl cry and now, apparently, she’s just perfect. Fucking rock stars.
“Atom Bomb” – Fluke
I’d like to date a well-equipped villain with a secret lair too, but a girl whose mind is set on world domination probably doesn’t have time for romance.
“Like a Friend” – Pulp
The “friend” strategy for getting the girl is rarely the right approach. This has been proven by expert stickfigures.
“Love Me Dead” – Ludo
This song was on the House, M.D. soundtrack but, oddly enough, not in the S&M episode. Though one could argue that love and pain are at the core of every House episode ever.
“Laid” – James
This is the catchiest song on this playlist.
“She’s So Cold” – The Rolling Stones
I think one guy’s suffering is totally justified if it brings millions of people a song this awesome.
“First Kiss” – Tom Waits
This one makes a great bedtime story. Sweet dreams.
