I Live Vicariously Through The Music I Listen To

It’s sad, but true. Here are some selections from one of my favourite playlists, which I called “So I’m A Little Messed Up”. My playlist titles are very descriptive. 😀

“Hallelujah”. I have both the original version by Leonard Cohen, and the Shrek version, by Rufus Wainwright.
From Wainwright’s version:

“Maybe I have been here before, I know this room;
I have walked this floor, I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch, love is not a victory march,
it’s a cold and its a broken Hallelujah”

“Seein’ Red,” by Unwritten Law.

“Don’t have much time for sympathy
But it never happened to me
You feelin’ down I don’t know where i’ll be when you come around
And now it’s time to make a choice,
And all I wanna hear is your voice…”

“Lover I Don’t Have to Love,” by Bright Eyes.

“I want a lover I don’t have to love
I want a boy who’s so drunk he doesn’t talk
Where’s the kid with the chemicals?
I’ve got a hunger and I can’t seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorize
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind”

“Hate Me Today,” by Blue October

“In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I’ll drive so fucking far away that I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind”

“Dizzy,” the Goo Goo Dolls

“I wanna kick at the machine
That made you piss away your dreams
And tear at your defenses
Till there’s nothing left but me
You’re angry when you’re beautiful
Your love is such a tease
I’m drowning in your dizzy noise
I wanna feel you scream”

“Shaketramp,” Mariana’s Trench

“Try a little more
a little more
a little more
They slap you like a bitch
and you take it like a whore”

I mean, there’s also some good ol’ Coldplay, Johnny Cash, and Chopin on there… Gotta mix it up!
