Day 186. “The Dresden Dolls” by The Dresden Dolls

      The first time I heard this album was in the basement of my friend Mark’s house. It didn’t hold much significance over me at the time. I also hadn’t really experienced any heartbreak, and found my late teenage self to be quite invincible.

     During my first heartbreak, I revisited the album….and wallah (I get it now). Although, Amanda Palmer doesn’t just emulate that sad, emotional girl who’s been hit by a proverbial bus…she pokes fun at herself, and shows us….hey! It’s normal!

Track 9- “The Jeep Song”

I’ve been driving around town
With my head spinning around
Everywhere i look i see
Your ’96 jeep cherokee

You’re a bully and a clown
You made me cry and put me down
After all that ive been through
You’d think i’d hate the sight of you

But with every jeep i see
My broken heart still skips a beat
I guess its just my stupid luck
That all of boston drives that same black fucking truck

It could be him or am i tripping
And i’m crashing into everything
And thinking about skipping town a while
Until these cars go out of style…

I try to see it in reverse
It makes the situation hundreds of times worse
When i wonder if it makes you want to cry
Every time you see a light blue volvo driving by

So dont tell me that you’re off to see the world
I know you wont get very far
Dont call me if you get another girl baby
Just call me if you get another car

The number of them is insane
Every exit’s an exboyfriend memory lane
Every major street’s a minor heart attack
I see a red jeep and i want to paint it black

It could be him or am i tripping
And i’m crashing into everything
I can’t wait til you trade that fucker in
By then they will have stuck me in the looney bin

It could be him my heart is pounding
Its just no use i’m surrounded
But someday i’ll steal your car and switch the gears
And drive that cherokee straight off this trail of tears

Tomorrow: “Bleed American” by Jimmy Eat World
