XTC (Band) ~ Earn Enough for Us
I love this adorable song, sung by a dude to his gal, about how money's tight and a baby's on the way but he'll do anything, take anything (even "...hurtful comments from the boss..."), to provide for them all. Aw, ain't he sweet? (Yes. Yes, he bloody well is.)
The XX (Band) ~ Crystalised
A groaned and whispered duet that nearly throbs with UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension), Crystalised made me emotionally erect (that's a technical term) from its eerie, train-whistle-on-a-foggy-night opening tone to its closing breathy vowel. These two world-weary lovers circle one another like boxers in the ring. A very sexy ring, but still...they wanna get close, they're afraid to get close, they're getting closer regardless...you know how these things go.
X Marks Destination (Album) ~ The Whip (Band) ~ Trash (Song)
You can see I had to reach for another tune to fit the letter and my theme. And even so, this song only fits because I think the music is pretty hot (plus, the chick on drums is a B.A.M.F. - you RAWK, Fiona "Lil Fee" Daniel). The lyrics are, essentially, "I wanna. I wanna be trash. And I have become the trigger for your gun," lather, rinse, repeat. I suppose this could all reside in Euphemism Land. Before I looked up the lyrics I thought the dude was singing, "I have become the trigger for your love," which would've been hot in a more obvious way. But I guess you can't have it all.
PS: I am of the opinion that this song sounds best when played LOUDLY. Do not hesitate to dance. You may even wish to wave your hands in the air like you just don't care, but I'll leave that up to you.
