I COULD NEVER TOUCH YOU! I THINK THAT WOULD BE WRONG!
going away to college - blink 182
This Lullaby by QOTSA
Even food don't taste that good
drink aint doing what it should
(no no no no)
things just feel so wrong
baby when you're gone
thanks 4 this. this is going on as a joke.
but really, it will be the standard "indie emo 'joke' mixtape throw-in" the one track on every indie i <3 girls mixtape ever. designed to make them think "oh he's so whacky and not too sentimental/a weirdo/stalker yknow," but which is actually only serves to enhance these worries.
COURAGE IN YOUR CONVICTIONS MAN! full on crying "WHHHYYY ARE YOOU NOT HEEEERE WITH MEE NOOOW!" please
god I love that song.
I'm listening to it now on Spotify. It's one of those amazing Radio 2 songs like 'If I Could Read Your Mind' by Gordon Lightfoot.
"Why are you so far away?" she said.
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you"
you should chk that out
and also Jude Law and a Semester Abroad - Brand New, except that one's more 'fuck you, how could you leave me?!!!'
Low - Over the Ocean
Akron Family - I'll be on the Water
i had forgotten just how so
Glad to be of some help, two of my favourite songs right there.
i love akron/family
from a very good album
The Pastels - Mandarin
Roddy Frame - The Sea is Wide
especially to the pastels. wow, you guys are so good at this!
Tired of Being Alone
Bright Eyes - June on the West Coast
i think i listened to like 2329900000 times in 2003/4
i think i listened to it a million times in 2003/4
pains of being pure at heart
by Ryan Adams.
(Don't Go Back To) Rockville
better. Good call.
but I think that's about splitting up with someone too. May not be like, see how you interpret it. It's VERY sad though.
There's a Field Mice one too, but I can't remember it's name...they have Coach Station Reunion but that's about seeing someone tomorrow and being excited about it.
I realise this post is of little help but you're having it anyway. I like the songs suggested above :)
It's definatly about missing someone and is slightly seasonal too.
Ironically, the best song on the subject by about a million miles
It's possibly the greatest song that deals with this topic.
If You See Her, Say Hello by Bob Dylan
that's what it was actually about, top choice though.
You went so far away
And I want to come there too
I want to be with you
I'm just waiting until you say these words :
"Come back, come back, come back, oh, to me..."
or maybe The Greater Times:
You say you don't know what love means anymore
Since I found you, I'm tearing down the walls without you
yep. electrelane is what you want.
i guess i never listened to the lyrics properly.
I came in here to stick this song out there.
The Chapter in Your Life Entitled San Francisco
Rah Rah- My Guarantee
Richard & Linda Thompson - 'A Heart Needs a Home.' Nothing says I miss you like a divorced duet.
by the pains of being pure at heart.
'I blow you a kiss
It should reach you tomorrow
As it flies from the other side of the world'
Bless you, Ctrl + F
and sending a mixtape to my girlfriend in australia. :)
Surely it should be Out of Reach from the same album by the Get Up Kids.
...but Frank Turner does these very well: Jet Lag, Front Crawl, Sea Legs, To Take You Home, A Love Worth Keeping, The Fastest Way Back Home. Yes there is more of an emphasis on touring here, of course, but the subject matter should suit nevertheless.
The Bird That You Can't See - Apples in Stereo?
Everything Beautiful is Far Away - Grandaddy
Daily I Will Calculate the Distance - Sounder
Far Away - Cut Copy
Distant Lover - Marvin Gaye
Of course I've never compiled a similar playlist.
Tom waits - never let go of your hand
and turn it to a video of you doing a striptease to the new Four Tet single (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YKOy8gn5yU). That'll get her attention!
or Washington D.C. by the Magnetic Fields?
by the arctic monkeys, not a huge fan but quite a good song
Bit corny and obvious, but it's still a nice song.
but how about Maps - Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I always think it's about 'don't leave me and go far away, stay here' but I don't know.
Vetiver - Been So Long
Vetiver - Rolling Sea
My girlfriend spent a year in Spain.
When Ye Go Away by The Waterboys is particularly devastating.
Scattered Black and White by Elbow - has that line which kills each time - "My sister buzzes through the room leaving perfume in the air/and that's what triggered this."
Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah
Arguably a good song. It gets a bad, bad rap for being so goddamn overplayed and overhyped and "omigod sooooo deep" but, it's too simple to pass up. "I know you're so damn far away, but I still love you and we're going to be together."
Or I could go with "Knives Out" which kinda works with how Thom has described the meaning and all that...
deserving of bump
you're so farrrr awaaaaay from meeeeee
