    Yeah that definitely came to mind, a lot of the rest of the choices aren't exactly what I would call "upbeat".

    There SHe Goes by the La's is actually about heroin if you listen to the lyrics, "racing though my vein"...



    Turning Japanese by the Vapours, not exactly disturbing but a bit cheeky that its actually about masturbation.



    Amusingly Sixpence None the Richer covered the La's track seemingly unaware of it, not sure about Kirsten Dunst covering the Vapours track....

    A lot of Steely Dan comes to mind as well, Chain Lighting for example is about kids joining the Nazi party....



    Dead or Alive by John Cale, about a woman who stalked him and his wife...

    Last Caress was the first song that popped into my head. Such a great track.

    Listening to this, in combination with watching your oddly fitting avatar, I have to ask: Are you Richard Cheese by any chance?
