Mix Tape #17 - In Love with Lyrics

I was going to post links to all of the lyrics since that is why they are on here, but not right now. Maybe later when I am feeling more ambitious. For now, you all know how to google if you are curious.

That's a great mix! I recently made this one for work. We have a closed-circuit tv network on which we play music sometimes...and there is a rule against swearing and certain subject matters (ignorance is bliss - what they don't know can't hurt them). We have a few songs in common:

Goodness “Sincerely”
Jimmy Falon “Idiot Boyfriend”
Johnny Cash and June Carter “Jackson”
Limbeck “People Don’t Change”
Pearl Jam “Yellow Ledbetter”
Phish “Farmhouse”
Presidents of the United States of America “Supermodel”
The Cure “Just Like Heaven”
The Beatles “We Can Work it Out”
Sean Lennon “Into the Sun”
The Beach Boys “God Only Knows”
The Posies “Golden Blunders”
The Steve Miller Band “Take the Money and Run”
Nathan Hamilton “Let it Lie”
The Smiths “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want”
Depeche Mode “Everything Counts” [live]
Harvey Danger “Little Round Mirrors”

Oh man! I forgot Depeche Mode on mine! How I did that I do not know! Goodness had one song that was accoustic at the end of a record that I really liked but I have no idea what it was called.
