The Way We Get By : Summer 2009

01. The Bravery, “Bad Sun”.
…and I don’t know where we belong; I think we grew under a bad sun/I know we’re not like everyone – You and me we grew under a bad sun…

02. Battles, “Atlas”.
…singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh/Kitchen is a cook, whoa-ey-oh/Scissors are the barbers, whoa-ey-oh/Singer is a crook, whoa-ey-oh/The chorus, full of actors…

03. Matt & Kim, “Daylight”.
…slip and slide on subway grates, These shoes are poor mans ice skates/Fall through like change in the daylight, Fall through like change in the daylight…

04. Lily Allen, “Who’d Have Known”.
…I haven’t left here for days now, and I’m becoming amazed how/you’re quite affectionate in public; in fact your friend said it made her feel sick/and even though it’s moving forward, there’s just the right amount of awkward/and today you accidentally…called me baby…

05. Greg Kinnear, “Summertime”.
…one of these, one of these, one of these mornings gonna/you’re gonna rise, you’re gonna rise up singin’/Then you will spread your little wings, your little wings/and you’ll take to the sky…

06. David Bowie, “Life On Mars?”.
…but her friend is nowhere to be seen/Now she walks through her sunken dream/To the seat with the clearest view/And she’s hooked to the silver screen/But the film is a saddening bore/For she’s lived it ten times or more/She could spit in the eyes of fools…

07. Jeff Beal, “The Carnivale Convoy”.
…instrumental…

08. Spill Canvas, “All Over You (Acoustic)”.
…yeah he’s a looker, but I really think it’s guts that matter most/I displayed them for you, strung out about from coast to coast/I am easily make-believe; just dress me up in what you want me to be…

09. Murder City Devils, “Boom Swagger Boom”.
…I hear her talking, hear her talking like a cat/I say I wish that I could talk like that/I hear her going rrrooww, rrrooww/I see her sitting, see her sitting by the fire/I say I wish I could be sitting right beside her/In time going boom, boom, boom…

10. Gene, “Fill Her Up”.
…I’ll open up for you, Don’t sober up will you?/I’ll buy the drinks and we will slip into the night/Into the night, Into the night/I’ll raise a glass to you, Take on the world with you/I’ll buy the drinks and we will sink a few tonight…

11. Shiny Toy Guns, “Major Tom (Coming Home)”.
…back at ground control, there is a problem/”Go to rockets full.” Not responding/”Hello Major Tom. Are you receiving?/Turn the thrusters on. We’re standing by”/There’s no reply/4, 3, 2, 1/Earth below us, drifting, falling/Floating weightless, calling, calling home…

12. The Lonely Island, “I’m On A Boat”.
…I’m riding on a dolphin, doing flips and shit/The dolphin’s splashing, getting everybody all wet/But this ain’t Sea World, this is real as it gets/I’m on a boat, motherfucker, don’t you ever forget…

13. Third Eye Blind, “Anything”.
…Jackie O with the top down open/All the words to what’s unspoken/I put together everything that’s broken/Just to see you/I’ll give you anything…

14. The Von Bondies, “The Fever”.
…she don’t know what she’s talking about/Yeah, she’s running on empty/She can’t sing, she just screams and shouts/Yeah, she’s running on empty…

15. Editors, “The Racing Rats”.
…standing at the edge of your town, with the skyline in your eyes/Reaching up to god, the sun says its goodbyes/If a plane were to fall from the sky/How big a hole would it leave in the surface of the earth?…

16. Heaven 17, “Don’t Fear The Reaper”.
…seasons don’t fear the reaper/Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are/Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper/Baby take my hand…don’t fear the reaper/We’ll be able to fly…don’t fear the reaper/Baby I’m your man…

17. MC Lars, “Mr Raven”.
…I miss Lenore, my Annabel Lee, taken by angels from me/Alone with books (hey that’s me!), harbinger of death visiting me/I said, “Can I help you, evil prophet? If you got a problem, look, I’ll solve it.”/He checked my hook, DJ revolved it, perched on Pallas, chalice dropped it/”Tell me sir, please, if you can. Am I good or evil man?/What can I say, what can I do, when will I be rid of you?”…

18. Spoon, “The Way We Get By”.
…we found a new kind of dance in a magazine/Tried it out it’s like nothing you ever seen/You sweet talk like a cop and you know it/You bought a new bag of pot, said let’s make a new start/And that’s the way to my heart/’s the way to my heart…

19. Red, “Ordinary World”.
…well now pride’s gone out the window, cross the rooftops, runaway/Left me in the vacuum of my heart/What has happened to me?/Crazy some say/Where is my friend when I need you most?/Gone away…

20. Simple Minds, “Don’t You Forget About Me”.
RIP John Hughes; here’s a song commissioned especially for The Breakfast Club, you glorious bastard.
…don’t you try to pretend/It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end/I won’t harm you or touch your defenses/Vanity and security/Don’t you forget about me/I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby/Going to take you apart/I’ll put us back together at heart, baby…
