Soundtrack: “Possession” by Elvis Costello & the Attractions
You lack lust/You’re so lackluster

At first I could only find a live version of it on my iPod when I did a search. Maybe I didn’t have the original. Though I thought I had all the reissues. Maybe it’s from Taking Liberties. So I looked it up on allmusic.com. It’s on Get Happy, which I have. Turns out it was spelled with only three esses. I mean, huh huh, it’s crazy, you know…
“Love for Tender.” Musically, it’s built for the classic Costello dance. The jerky limb jutting.

Soundtrack: “Fox in the Snow” by Belle & Sebastian
This morning I finally learned what Chrissie Hynde is singing in “Brass Pocket” – the line goes “Been driving, Detroit leaning.” I think the Detroit Lean is comparable to the Bensonhurst Slouch. Hynde said she wasn’t crazy about the song because the lines are too obscure.
“The pain of being a hopeless unbeliever.”
