Cream of The Crap

Music, movies, gadgets and just random things. The Creme de La Creme, of Crap!

Alone in a Crowded Place

Lets all toast to the days when we just feel like we didn’t fit in, those days when we feel misunderstood, those days when we just want to say “stay the fuck away from me.” 

These are the songs for one of those days that we realize we are basically alone. 

1. Fiona Apple – Why Try to Change Me Now

"I'm sentimental, so I walk in the rain. I got some habits, that I can't explain."

This anorexic beauty covers a song by Cy Coleman about not fitting in. I envy how Fiona Apple always managed to look so sullen, so composed, the kind of composure that makes you feel she could slit her wrists any second without flinching.

2. Jimmy Eat World – The Middle

90’s rock (or let me quote wikipedia, emocore) band sings a song not writing yourself off yet. We all know we’re bad debts. So if life was this party, i’d be the loner trying to find his way around. Loners are always male. Girls who are alone at parties are always wasted.

Hey,
Don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out,
Or looked down on.

3. The Streets – Blinded by the Lights

No one tells a story like Mike Skinner. By story I mean detailed drunken ramblings with a super nice hook.

I hate coming to the entrance, just to get bars on my phone, 
You have no new messages, so why haven’t they phoned? 
Menu, write message, so where are you and Simone? 
Send message, dans number, where’ve they gone? 
And im thinkin’… 
(the Lights are blinding my eyes) 
Why’s the message pending? where the fuck are ya? 
And i’m thinkin’… 
(People pushin’ by, there walkin’ off into the night)

4. Thom Yorke – The Eraser

This song has been sampled by CRS (Child Rebel Soldier) which consist of chronic song sampler Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell. So Thom Yorke really sounds like Radiohead, minus Radiohead. But still totally have that Radiohead vibe. But really, its not Radiohead.

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear

5. Lightspeed Champion – Stay the Fuck Away from Me

You can’t argue with this song. Black British indie pop guy, with guitar and wailing, “OOOOh BIIIIIIITCH, stay the fuck away from meee.”

i’m getting burnt more times than i have before.
i’ve realised once more
that everyone’s a whore.

Enjoy!
