Daily Mutilation

Songs in my head:
"Daily Mutilation" by the Posies
"Is She Really Going Out With Him?" by Joe Jackson

The soundtrack to the Anti-Valentine's Day party is complete. Five discs of songs with lyrics about breaking up, discontent, unhappiness, regret and so on. Here are some of the other songs:

"I'm Not Calling You" by Lifetime
"The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get" by Morrissey
"Via Chicago" by Wilco
"Daily Mutilation" by the Posies
"Explode and Make Up" by Sugar
"Make It Easy on Yourself" by the Walker Brothers
"Operator" by Jim Croce
"The Brides Have Hit Glass" by Guided By Voices
"All By Myself" by Eric Carmen
"Never Gonna Fall in Love Again" by Eric Carmen
"Another Saturday Night" by Sam Cooke
"Alone Again (Naturally)" by Gilbert O'Sullivan
"Without You" by Nilsson
"Sent You Up" by Knife in the Water
"The KKK Took My Baby Away" by the Ramones
"Broken Heart" by Spiritualized
"The End of July" by Sarge
"Why Bother?" by Weezer
"Pictures of You" by the Cure
"Simple Twist of Fate" by Bob Dylan
"Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS

Very cool to see this show get this kind of coverage. It's because of the pre-Good Show show, The Tom and Steve Show, that I got/stole/ripped-off the idea for the Anti-Valentine's Day Party.

I found this site this afternoon. As a fan of the band, I'm glad to see such an extensive site devoted to them.

One of my favorite breakup/anti-relationship songs is "Wish Me Well" by the Bouncing Souls.

I also really like "Long Distance" by All, although I couldn't listen to it for at least six months after breaking up with my first love, because it described our relationship and breakup perfectly -- right down to the "We both know how hard it is for both of us to try/And we both know how hot it is in Texas in July."
