Jimmy Eat World - Gotta Be Somebody's Blues

I never downloaded JEW's latest album, Big Casino, because I thought the first single was pretty weak. But there's some gems - like this one:

If you've never listened to Jimmy Eat World, I think this is their best song:
Jimmy Eat World - Lucky Denver Mint download it
do what the nice lady is asking you

One other striking thing on Big Casino are the lyrics to "Open Bar Reception" a song about a couple getting married:
I should feel we're going somewhere better
But I don't.
Why should we be anything but strangers
In clothes that we don't own?

And while we're on it, I been digging these lyrics too -
Morrisey's How Soon Is Now
There's a club if you'd like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

Sigur Ros - All Alright (their first english song)
I want him to know
what I have done
I want him to know
it's bad

Nothing Ever Happened - Deerhunter
. I find these lyrics funny, they are nowhere on the net, but I really like the line:
Nothing ever happened to me
Life just passed and flashed right through me

Ok now. You go and think about all this stuff all these people said and then get back to me with some spreadsheets. Because this will inspire you. And when you feel inspired, make spreadsheets. Just do it.
