Wreck Your Life

I should have noted in my last post that one of my favorite bands, the Old 97's, has done that album-naming trick three times, with Too Far to Care (from "Streets of Where I'm From"), Hitchhike to Rhome ("Stoned"), and Drag It Up ("Smokers"). Sorry, guys.

Also, on one of that album's songs, the Clash says, "Sandinista," but I can't remember which one.

"Washington Bullets." Good call!

Also, Bob Dylan's "Knocked Out Loaded" ("Under Your Spell"), Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Fever To Tell" ("Man"), Sonic Youth's "Daydream Nation" ("Hyperstation"), Beck's "Odelay" ("Lord Only Knows"), Dire Straits' "Making Movies" ("Skateaway") and Randy Newman's "Land of Dreams" ("Dixie Flyer")...

...and U2's "Boy" ("The Electric Co."), Roxy Music's "Stranded" ("Street Life"). the Hold Steady's "Boys and Girls in America" ("Stuck Between Stations")...

I always assumed that song was called "Daydream Nation." I guess I never really looked.

Can't believe you missed the Kinks' "Everybody's in Showbiz" ("Celluloid Heroes"). But I can believe I missed it.

Also, The Cure, "[The] Head on the Door" (from "Close to Me").

"Knocked Out Loaded" is a heroin reference. The lyric comes from an old New Olreans song, "Junko Partner."

...Elvis Costello's "Blood & Chocolate" ("Uncomplicated") and to complete the EC hat trick, "King of America" ("Brilliant Mistake").
