Random 10, with links

"The Newlyweds," Chris Stamey: "And I ask him how he feels/And he says, 'Nothing much'/Do you ever think of her?/'No, hardly never'"

"Smoke and Mirrors," The Magnetic Fields: "Smoke and mirrors/Special effects/A little fear, a little sex/That's all love is/Behind the tears/Smoke and mirrors"

"Walk Away Renee," The Left Banke: "Just walk away Renee/You won't see me follow you back home"

"This Is Not a Love Song," Nouvelle Vague: "This is not a love song/This is not a love song/This is not a love song/This is not a love song"

"Float Away," David Garza: "Now you're the storm inside the wave/When you touch me, I float away"

"Ring of Fire," Johnny Cash: "I fell in to a burning ring of fire/I went down, down, down/And the flames went higher"

"Radio Radio," Elvis Costello: "Radio is a sound salvation/Radio is cleaning up the nation"

"Girl Like Me," K.J. Denhert: "Honestly, you don't play hide and seek/When a girl like me comes knocking at your door/Can't you see the obvious before you?/With a girl like me, you know you won't get bored"

"Nothing Has Been Proved," Dusty Springfield: "Stephen's in his dressing-gown now, breakfasting alone/Too sick to eat, he's on his feet and to the telephone/The police inspector soothes him with his sympathetic tone/It may be false, it may be true/But nothing has been proved"

"The Girl's Insane," The Januaries: "The girl's insane not to love you/And I must be crazy too"


Overall, it looks like I had my iPod set on "Depressing."
