A meme for us all on a sunny Saturday afternoon! [personal profile] allchildren gave me N for a five songs meme, but she was a rebel and posted ten, and Imma do the same. BUT WITH A TWIST!

Five Soundtrack Songs

Nature Boy - David Bowie and Massive Attack
Moulin Rouge! There are many things of a problematic nature about this movie, and I know a lot of people really don't like it, but I really loved it as a teenager.

Needle in the Hay - Elliot Smith
The Royal Tenenbaums, natch.

Never Been to Spain - Three Dog Night
Scotland, Pa, a movie I really wish more people would watch! This comes up toward the climactic ending and it's such a random choice, but a fun song.

No One Mourns the Wicked - Indina Menzel
A particularly thrilling number from Wicked. A good song for when you are feeling like going FUCK EVERYTHING, in my opinion!

Notorious - Duran Duran
Do I even need to explain this? I love Donnie Darko, I love Duran Duran, everyone in this bar.

Five Songs That Might Have Been In Something But If They Were I Don't Know About It

Never Feel Good - Cake vs Gorillaz
A mashup I acquired from [personal profile] allchildren lo these many years ago, and invoked at countless dance parties since. My favorite was in a hostel in France, but then what wouldn't be.

The New Year - Death Cab for Cutie
I don't know if I can adequately describe how much Transatlanticism was my jam in the latter part of my high school career! In spite of that, please do not draw any parallels between myself and one Seth Cohen.

Nobody Told Me - John Lennon
I am terrible at writing about music, apparently. John Lennon was a formative influence in my young ears, and this is no exception!

Not Big - Lily Allen
Peppy songs about horrible things!

Not If You Were The Last Junkie on Earth - The Dandy Warhols
This was essentially my emotional-break-up song for a fraught relationship I had for a while in high school. Also, a fun song about how sometimes the people you love are actually assholes.

Ending this post on an fun note, aw yeah. A BONUS: Numbers Don't Lie - The Mynabirds, because at this point why not just willfully ignore the rules.
