Everybody dies frustrated and sad
and that is beautiful.

It's 2am, I'm eating cookies and listening to Kajagoogoo. Damn. I really need to go to bed.

While scrolling through the iPod, I realized that there are some songs that I know EVERY SINGLE WORD to. Not ony do I know all the words - but seriously know every single beat, pause and chorus, as if I wrote the damn song myself.

"But Not Tonight" Depeche Mode
"Ask" The Smiths
"Bizarre Love Triangle" New Order
"When I Need You" Erasure
"Everyday I Write the Book" Elvis Costello
"Express Yourself" Madonna
"Question of Lust" Depeche Mode
"Don't Let's Start" They Might Be Giants

Yikes. Is that weird? It's weird, right? There's way more on this list, but I don't want to completely reveal how dork-tastic I am. I could sing them all to prove it to you, but that's not happening.

Yeah, I know that Madonna song, too. Because, "satin sheets are very romantic, what happens when you're not in bed?"

Nothing wrong with being dorktastic because it's hip to be square. :)

Nothing wrong with a little Huey, people. He was revolutionary with lyrics like, Y"ou don't need money, don't take fame/Don't need no credit card to ride this train."

Oh yeah, baby.

gosh, you guys sound normal compared to me. i tend to not only memorize every word to songs (including those mentioned), but tv commericials, movie dialogues, and tv show theme songs.

i also think there's an unwritten rule somewhere that if you're a "depeche mode" fan, you must have memorized the words to at *least* 10 of their songs, including all the harmonizing parts.
