Song of the Day 6/30/2010

Wednesday will now consist of a song of the day. Since it’s the middle of the week I figure you might need a little something to get you through the rest of the week. Sure it’s just one song, but maybe you’ll like it so much you listen to it for the rest of the week. Or you didn’t know the band and decide to listen to all their stuff. I just hope you’ll like what you hear.

Today’s song comes from one of my favorite bands ever. It’s really hard for me to pick my favorite band, but these guys definitely fall in my top 5. So take a listen. It’s funny how you can know the lyrics and sing them and not even take it in. I’ve loved this song for a long time and it wasn’t until I posted the lyrics up here that I realized just how sad they are…doesn’t change the fact that it’s a great song.

Band: Margot & the Nuclear S0 and So’s
Song: Dress Me Like a Clown

Lyrics:
I am alive, I am alive,
And that is the best that I can do.
You go near your light,
I swore you were mine.
I’d take you back a thousand times.

Talk of the town you’ve been around,
if he is the man u want then go.
but tonight we’ll leave all our lovers behind
and try to live a quiet life.
My love is dressing me like a clown

You are an ass a snake in the grass
Vanity seeps from out your pores,
And baby its time to pay for my crime.
Nothing i say can make you mine,
Be that singing in key or runnin to me.
I can think it as good as you.

But tonight we’ll leave
All our stupid songs.
We’ll try and reach the hills by dawn.
My love is dressin me like a clown.

Tonight we’ll leave all our lovers behind
And try to live a quiet life,
Margot dress me like a clown.

Tonight we’ll drink to an early grave,
We’ll laugh but we will not be saved.
Someone has dressed us all like clowns.

Darling it’s sin. Where do I begin.
Putting your contact lenses in,
You see the lights
Scurry like mice
Reflect in the streets
And you pour words
Out on the roof.
Way to grow up
Turn me around
Then lock me up.

Baby you are an ass a snake in the grass
Vanity oozes out your pores.
Oh oh oh ohh
Oh oh oh ohh
Oh oh oh ohh

  1. Looooove this band and I can relate all too well to this song right now. Great Wednesday music choice!

    P.S. I never realised there were so many members in Margot etc.

    • Cdean, that was the exact same thing I said when I Googled them to find a band picture, “Whoa, they have a lot of members!”

      Also, sorry you can relate to such a sad song, but I hope in some way maybe it can help you get through what’s going on in your life.

      If one of my posts can help someone through something or put a smile on their face then this whole blogging thing is totally worth it!

  2. I meant to tell you a few days ago, but I like the “photo a day” idea, especially that you post them all in one day. I think it makes the project more enjoyable without a daily deadline. Pictures were fun. Keep sharing!

    p.s. I added you to my blog list. 🙂

    • Glad you are liking the Photo A Day thing. I am loading them on Facebook day of if I can manage, but do plan on keeping it to a weekly release on here. Sunday or Monday most likely.

      Thanks for adding me to your bloglist. You are on mine as well.
