High Fidelity 12: You Need To Be Released

By request, a mix for the times when you feel as if you ought to come with a warning label stating, “Caution!  Not worth the trouble!  Excess baggage and emotional damage!  Run, don’t walk.”  Although frankly, I’d hardly label the requesting individual as such, I relate to the feeling all too well.  Spanning covers and the full gamut of emotion from confusion over being someone’s love to regretting being so difficult to love, this mix hits a little of this and that.

Comment if taking and please enjoy (and buy some CDs).  *wink*

You Need To Be Released: Loving The Difficult To Love

1.  Opheliac – Emilie Autumn
“You know how hard it can be to keep believing in me
When everything and everyone becomes my enemy and friend
There’s nothing more you can do
I’m going to blame it on you…”

2.  Miss World – Neverending White Lights
“I made my bed, I’ll lie in it
I made my bed, I’ll die in it…”

3.  That’s Me – Tara Maclean
“Caught on the floor now, with this bottle in my mind
In the confusion, it seemed the safest place to land…
Tied to the tracks, expecting the train
So much to lose and no one to blame but me…”

4.  Quietly – Guano Apes
“Quietly explodes your love
Your insecurity is so soft to me…
I see you dying in my eyes…”

5.  So Well – Damhnait Doyle
“I’ve got to lie about you as I scrawl on this stall
Why you treat me so well?
Why you treat me so goddamn well?”

6.  I Got Trouble – Christina Aguilera
“I got a wicked taste for trouble
And I’m never, never satisfied
Yeah I’m a whole lot of trouble,
And my evil ways I can’t hide…”

7.  Fast As You Can – Fiona Apple
“Fast as you can baby
Run, free yourself from me
Fast as you can…”

8.  Paint’s Peeling – Rilo Kiley
“And last night, when my hands were choking you…
You said, “Hey, how can you love me this way?”

9.  Even Deeper – Nine Inch Nails
“In a dream I’m a different me
With a perfect you
We fit perfectly
And for once in my life I feel complete
And I still want to ruin it…”

10.  Release – The Tea Party
“If I desert you now, it’s just to make you see
I want you to be free
I want you to be free from me…”

11.  Ampersand – Amanda Palmer
“And I may be romantic, and I may risk my life for it
But I ain’t gonna die for you
You know I ain’t no Juliet…”

12.  We’re Both So Sorry – Mirah
“My subjects all adore me, but for this I had them banned
Now could I trade my guilt for a good flogging by your hand?”

I’m stuck in my ways…”

14.  Wicked Ways – Garbage

I’d keep my promises if only I could…”

For perfections like you and horrors like me…”

For this I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying…”

“If all of the strength and all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this…”

18.  Maybe – Kelly Clarkson
“I’m confusing as hell
I’m north and south
And I’ll probably never have it all figured out…”
