    I decided against including it because my relationship with the song is not deep enough; I simply enjoy the blunt contrarian nature of the lyrics. However, I would bet that the title is caused by the song.

    It is certainly not my favorite recording of the song either. I just did not find any other on YouTube. I prefer the studio version. Obviously, it is also one of my favorite Dylan songs.

    The two Mountain Goats songs I selected don't match up lyrically, but the underlying composition of moods are relevant to the two periods I selected.

    The rest of the songs match pretty well lyricallly, if not 100% perfectly. I wonder how transparent the meaning of them is? To me what they mean is very obvious. It's strange putting together my life like that, I hadn't really done that before. Funny, how even sharing someone's else's meaningful words can seem like too much.

    Also, never heard of Bill Fay, but I like him.

    #2: Lemon ~ U2 (I could tell you but then your mind would explode because of the hidden unicorn bounding through your thoughts and then holy crackers it's a moonbeam of jello tasting like lemons and then suddenly you want to buy a feather boa that's turquoise and go swimming into the Antarctic waters of your memories.)

    Some parents can be too hard. Mine were probably the hardest you've ever met. Ahhh, but I loved them anyway. For years, I wished I was born into a different family, but as it turned out, they were exactly what I needed. They're alright.

    Fascination Street - The Cure
    Age 6 or so, listening to the Cure on my ESFP sister's bedroom floor, staring up at fashion collages she made on the wall. Obsessions begin. My mysterious ENFP goth half-sister furthered this fascination with 80s "death rock", as it was called then.

    Hit - Sugarcubes
    My cool ENFP used to make us mixed tapes. I remember Sugarcubes & Cocteau Twins the most. Loved it!
    If I really liked a song, then I'd make up new lyrics for it. I remember doing that with this song.

    Subbacultcha - The Pixies (pretty much the whole Trompe Le Monde album)
    Their lyrics were so hilarious to me. I remember my sister & her friends playing this a lot, along with The Violent Femmes & Smashing Pumpkins when they'd play pool & I was a tagalong.

    Silver Waterfalls - Siouxsie and the Banshees
    I became obsessed with Siouxsie as a child. I was totally fascinated by her persona & loved the imagery in her lyrics. Her voice was so distinct to me as well. I remember playing this song a lot on my walkmen on a road trip with family once.

    People Are People - Depeche Mode
    Another song I'd hear my sister play. She used to have 106.7 KROQ (an LA alternative rock station) on all the time & it was stuff like this that would come on. Sometime in the mid to late 90s that station just went totally downhill though (like most radio). Of course, I liked the message in this song also.

    What A Man - Salt-N-Pepa
    My best friend at the time & I memorized all the lyrics because we thought the song was idiotically hilarious. I also secretly liked En Vogue, but publicly I'd only admit to listening to stuff like the Smashing Pumpkins.

    The More You Ignore Me - Morrissey
    I was obsessed with this song. I thought it was a love song & that Morrissey had the best voice I'd ever heard.

    Stay - Lisa Loeb
    I used to love to sing this song as a kid. And people told me I looked like a mini Lisa Loeb cuz I had HUGE glasses. This song kind of annoys me now.

    Common People - Pulp
    I remember my sister playing this while getting ready to go out to these Brit Pop / 60s Soul clubs with her friends. The whole Working Class album left a mark on me. Jarvis Cocker's wit!

    TOO MUCH MUSIC! This doesn't even begin to cover all the songs that stand out to me. I was really into music as a child (still am).... There are so many songs I remember getting really obsessed with for a time. Most of these were taste-shapers for me though (except Loeb & Sal-N-Pepa).

    This is all pre-age 10, except for Pulp. I could make separate lists for the teen years, then college years, then the recent years.

    My older sister's tastes were obviously a huge influence on me also. We still share music, but now I tend to find the new stuff. But the 80s/early 90s music is still my favorite.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    #2*: Bittersweet Symphony ~ Verve Something Something Beer Homer Delicious Cake Pie STOMP CHOMP NOMNOMONOMOM. (Ok, in all seriousness, whenever this song comes on, I haz to turn the sound up until the waves of air threaten to discombobulate the very fabric of time around the vortex of my car and then I sing along with it and glorious angel butts fly out of my mouth and create a wealth and wreath of rainbowed haloes around my brow and the beautiful riches of the mountains walk down to the river where I stand but then I am not there and it's all what just happened? But shh it's all ok because I am a million different people from one day to the next. And I'm a slave to the song but then I die-I. Also bees, killer bees, come flying out as well and then the world just ends.)
