Friday Morning Music Shuffle – Smoke Dried Face Mix

Ah – the Friday before the Super Bowl.  Shouldn’t this be a national holiday, so that we can all get prepared for the annual religious event?  Just a thought…

Baby, why’m I worried now,
did someone make a fool of me
‘fore I could show ’em how it’s done?
Can’t give up actin’ tough,
it’s all that I’m made of.
Can’t scrape together quite enough
to ride the bus to the outskirts
of the fact that I need love. – Middle Cyclone – Neko Case

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They’re the ones who’ll hate you
When you think you’ve got the world all sussed out
They’re the ones who’ll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out – High and Dry – Radiohead

Hey pretty baby don’t you know it ain’t my fault
I love to hear the steel belts hummin’ on the asphalt
Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop
Stumble in the restaurant wonderin’ why I don’t stop – Guitar Town – Steve Earle

Well that was fifteen years ago, I guess I come a long long way
I never heard the end of it, you know I couldn’t stay... 
When Im not stuck for time or money, 
I still wonder bout that day - Walk in the Woods - Peter Case

These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes sunk in a smoke dried face
So resigned what their fate is,
But not us (no never),
no, not us (no never),
we are far too young and clever.  – Come On Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners
