Musica musica musica!  
I was tagged twice on the meme that's going around, once by slodwick and once by scrunchy, so instead of listing 7 songs I'm into lately and then another 7 songs I've been listening to, I'm going to name 7 songs and 7 books. It seems appropriate.

Songs!

1. Run - Snow Patrol

Have heart my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess


2. Sleep - Godspeed You Black Emperor!

Instrumental and GORGEOUS. So emotional.

3. Promising Light - Iron & Wine

but now i see love
there in your car where i said those things
now i see love
tugging your skirt, singing please, please, please


4. John Wayne Gacy, Jr. - Sufjan Stevens

He took of all their clothes for them
He put a cloth on their lips
Quiet hands, quiet kiss
On the mouth

And in my best behavior
I am really just like him
Look beneath the floorboards
For the secrets I have hid


5. Drunken Love Song - Tami Hart (? - I can't remember and I know I don't have it labeled right in my iTunes)

I don't mean to tell that story
What I do might make you worry
I don't mean to do that to you
I don't mean to do it to you


6. I Wished On The Moon - Billie Holiday

I begged on the stars
To throw me a beam or two
Wished on the stars
And asked for a dream or two
I looked for every loveliness
It all came true
I wished on the moon for you


7. A Man Like Me - Beulah

My love is a lot like yours,
It’s been crippled by the wars we wage,
We’re hopeless, we’re on the losing side.
We never speak when we’re making love,
You never mean it when you come to me,
With your arms stretched,
Defenseless and alone.</i. And books: 1. War Music by Christopher Logue 2. Daniel Deronda by George Eliot 3. Moby Dick by Herman Melville 4. The Beauty of the Husband by Anne Carson 5. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson 6. Ahab's Wife, Or The Stargazer by Sena Jeter Naslund 7. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman I tag no one! I am tag free! Also: I have a massive care package sitting beside me and am pleased with life as a whole.
