30 Songs in 30 Days: day 15 – a song that describes you

I know I haven’t exactly been hitting the “daily” aspect of this meme, but I’ve stalled out compeltely for the last several days (maybe a week) for a couple of reasons. Reason one: very busy at work. Reason two, and the more critical reason: this entry. I have been struggling to figure out how to identify a song that describes me. I’ve considered and rejected the jokey ideas (Buzzcocks’ Orgasm Addict, Talking Heads’ Psycho Killer, Peter Gabriel’s No Self-Control), and a few others that I think would appear overly confessional (whether they were or not). Hell, I don’t know how to describe myself in prose; how am I supposed to identify a song that does it?

So, I’m cheating. This song (no video this time, sorry) describes everyone – which by definition means it describes me. I declare victory and move on.

(It’s also an awesome song. I really love The Rakes, and I wish I had discovered them before they split up in 2009.)
