While You’re At It You Can Polarize My Chemicals

posted by on October 2 at 14:48 PM

I have a not-completely-secret admiration for good songs about depression, mental illness, and being and/or feeling insane, and right now I’m working on a Line Out post/playlist that will include many of my favorites that fit that description along with a lot of suggestions from my friends (and possibly any suggestions you have too?).

But while I work on that, I will give you this sneak preview because I can’t keep it to myself because I love it so much.

Kind of Like Spitting “We Are Both Writers.”

"Please Be Patient With Me" by Wilco is a great one.

I've always loved the song "Various Stages" by Great Lake Swimmers

I love KOLS! I was skimming through the posts today when that lyrics caught my eye. I still haven't met someone who likes them, but they've quickly become one of my favorite bands. You think they'd be more appreciated in the NW.
And this video is great. Thanks for posting.

Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want by The Smiths is the original for me. I don't know why anyone had the audacity to remake it, but do not go recommending some remake of it by the Deftones.
