DJ Kitty Cat: February

11 Feb



My roommate Caitlin aka DJ Kitty Cat is ridiculously knowledgable and amazing when it comes to music and playlists and angst.  I asked her to be my music correspondent on this oh-so-popular blog and she agreed.  You’re in for a treat.  DJ Kitty Cat is something else.  She’s also a psych major, as you will see.  Follow Caitlin on Twitter here.

As Single Awareness Day looms around the corner, I have prepared an arsenal of poignant tunes to get you through these perilous times. These songs are a few of my favorites, just a sample of my extensive library of dead heart tunes, aptly named “Sob fest 2013.”

Listen to the entirety at your own risk; if you are unsure of your emotional stability then you can contact me for a free SAD PERSONS evaluation, assessing your ability to recover from extended exposure to the accumulated Major Depressive Disorder of these artists.

1. Hurt- Johnny Cash [NIN cover]
Favorite Lyrics- You are someone else. I am still right here. //You can have it all, my empire of dirt. I will let you down. I will make you hurt

2. Both Sides Now- Joni Mitchell
Favorite Lyrics- It’s love’s illusions I recall; I really don’t know love at all.

3. You Were A Kindness- The National
Favorite Lyrics- Why would you shatter somebody like me? It doesn’t work that way. Wanting not to want you wont make it so. Don’t leave me here alone.

4. She’s Always A Woman- Billy Joel
Favorite Lyrics- She can ask for the truth but she’ll never believe you. She’ll only reveal what she wants you to see. She steals like a thief but she’s always a woman to me.

5. I Know It’s Over- The Smiths
Favorite Lyrics- Love is natural and real, but not for such as you and I, my love.

6. Edge Of Desire- John Mayer
Favorite Lyrics- I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe. There I just said it, I’m scared you’ll forget about me.

7. Jesus Christ- Brand New
Favorite Lyrics- My bright is too slight to hold back all my dark.

8. Graceland- The Tallest Man On Earth (Paul Simon cover)
Favorite Lyrics- She comes back to tell me she’s gone. As if I didn’t know that. And she said losing love is like a window in your heart: everybody sees you’re blown apart, everybody sees the wind blow.

9. Take It All- ADELE
Favorite Lyrics: You’ve given up so easily; I thought you loved me more than this.

10. Guess I’m Doing Fine- Beck
Favorite lyrics: It’s only lies that I’m living. It’s only tears that I’m crying. It’s only you that I’m losing. Guess I’m doing fine.
