I'm making a mixtape on this theme and am completely stuck at the moment. Any suggestions?
wicked little town from the hedwig and the angry inch soundtrack
not sure cant remember
Operation Ivy - Bad Town
Liam Lynch - This Town Sucks
it's getting boring by the sea- blood red shoes

Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
Black and White Town - Doves
or if you're not remotely bothered about credibility...
Sleep Well Tonight - Gene
you clearly weren't there on the last night of ATP...
I became confused, because he had sold some records.
How about 'There Ain't No Fool In Ferguson' by McLusky for the old 'monobrow shithole' line
I'd kill to hear that again.
The time I think most clearly, the time I drift away
Is on the bus-ride that meanders up these valleys of green and grey
I get to think about what might have been and what may yet come true
And I get to pass a rainy mile thinking of you
And all the while, all the while, I still hear that call
To the land of gold and poison that beckons to us all
Nothing changes here very much, I guess you'd say it never will
The pubs are all full on Friday nights and things get started still
We spent hours last week with Billy boy, bleeding, yeah queuing in Casualty
Staring at those posters we used to laugh at:
Never Never Land, palm trees by the sea
Well there was no need for those guys to hurt him so bad
When all they had to do was knock him down
But no one asks to many questions like that since you left this town
And tomorrow brings another train
Another young brave steals away
But you're the one I remember
From these valleys of green and the grey
You used to talk about winners and losers all the time - as if that was all there was
As if we were not of the same blood family, as if we live by different laws
Do you owe so much less to these rain swept hills than you owe to your good self?
Is it true that the world has always got to be something
That seems to happen somewhere else?
For God's sake don't you realise that I still hear that call
Do you think you're so brave just to go running to that which beckons to us all?
No, not for one second did you look behind you
As you were walking away
Never once did you wish any of us well
Those who had chosen to stay
And if that's what it takes to make it
In the place that you live today
Then I guess you'll never read these letters that I send
From the valleys of the green and the grey
Someone else likes NMA! :D
Pavement - Box Elder
Wasn't the question you asked me
It wasn't the answer I gave
That made me feel like I was on a train
Was a distant voice
Made me make a choice
That I had to get the fuck out of this town
I got a lot of things to do
A lot of places to go
I've got a lot of good things coming my way
And I'm afraid to say that you're not one of them.
Belle + Seb. Surely?
aka Hampstead, London, NW3
"Gonna break out of this city, leave the people here behind"
I'm not sure if this is what the song is actually about. But it seems to fit
Straight out of Compton is hardly ever used to promote tourism in the area i suppose...?
is a song Mike Mills wrote for his girlfriend because he didn't want her to leave him and go back to college
makes it perfectly appropriate for this thread. ahem.
I'll just get my coat...
(The rain falls hard on a humdrum town / This town has dragged you down)
I've Tried Everything - The Cribs

And a new band (not a JAG)
