Secret dirty lyrics

They're not always obvious. So much fast singing these days. Probably nobody notices but me, armed with my lyric sheets and my filthy mind.

Track list:

1. The Organ - thieves - fire in the ocean

Comments: This is an existing favourite. It's great! But I think I would like to reassure you; you do not need to throw yourself into the ocean to feel a comforting all-over embrace. It's dangerous and cold. And eiderdowns are so affordable these days. Especially if you go synthetic.

2. Paper Moon - one thousand reasons to stay, one reason to leave - the history of punctuation

Comments: Dance dance dance to the history of Canadian pop music! I'm delving into the library today.

3. Corb Lund Band - unforgiving mistress - mora (blackberry)

Comments: Corb goes latino! This is a bit cheeky and also hip-swagglin'.

4. jale - various: never mind the molluscs ep - lung

Comments: Delicious east-coast grunge.

5. Emilie Muscle - laches louuses ii - manger la tete

Comments: Slow fast slow fast awesome.

6. Weasel Faced Judge - hear & now '92 - bacon and egg bicycle

Comments: Craziness. A sausage built for two! Glad to know someone else has embraced weird for the sake of weird.

7. Donner Party Reunion - "it's been about five years, hasn't it?" - days of degradation

Comments: Punktacular, and from the past. It has been about fifteen years I think, actually.

8. Search Parties - an hour like this - wonderful disease

Comments: I love how this song is like eight songs all smashed together. Sort of symphonic, in that sense.

9. Wintermitts - heirloom - mer de l'atlantique

Comments: Sort of sad and dance-y at the same time. And tinkly at the end.

10. Jenny Omnichord - charlotte or otis - I sneeze in threes (with Andy Swan)

Comments: So adorable. I have this at home and it just makes me grin horribly. I miss being five. Except the time I was punished for smacking a kid with a rubber porkchop in kindergarten, that sucked. I had to sit on the orange chair! Ick.

11. B.A. Johnston - stairway to hamilton - tetris junkie
