At this point I just have to mention "Wait" by K's Choice. Always reminds me of Brian's affection for Angela.

I don't know most of these songs and artists, but I definitely see "1979" or the Violent Femmes working well with the show. I've just always had the problem of hearing the songs from the show and not bein able to ever disassociate them form the show.

Cami, if you're looking for new video songs, I think that "I'm a Punk Rocker" by Iggy Pop and the Teddybears would be a great song for Jordan being too cool and apathetic towards Angela -- a lot of leaning, eye rolling, and walking away. The White Stripes' "Cold Cold Night" might make a great song to tell the story of Angela spending time with Jordan, somewhat on the sly (what happened between Self-Esteem and Pressure, what more would have happened had they not broken up in Pressure...).

Here's another. (Have you noticed I'm a Krakow person, yet?)

He Likes Me- Violent Femmes:
He likes me
He likes me
Ooh... isnt that nice
He likes me
He likes me
Ooh... isnt that nice
That your brand new friend
He likes your old true friend
And isnt that the way
That it ought to be
That your brand new friend
He has good will to send
And youre so free
Youre so free
Youre so free
And I am history
He likes you
He says that he loves you
Ooh thats good to know
You like him
I hope you dont love him
And ooh you should know
That your old true friend
He doesnt like your brand new friend
Person to person its not on purpose
But I take it personally
And soon your brand new friend
I hope Ill have a bon voyage to send
And youre so free
Youre so free
Youre so free
And I am history
You say you wont pick
And you wont make a choice
But Im so mad I could spit
And I hear it in your voice
You said he likes me
He likes me
Ooh isnt that swell
He likes me
You said he likes me
Ohhh tell him hell...
O from me
A great big hello from me
Jesus always taught me
That I should love my enemy
Darling my hearts in pain
Thats why my songs insane
And youre so free
And I am history
He likes me
But I dont like him

By the Way by the chili peppers reminds me of Jordan's attitude in life. "Today" by the Pumpkins reminds me of Angela since she loves the pumpkins and it seems like a song she'd listen to, after an incrdible day of having a "great"conversation with Jordan.

Perfect song for Rickie, guys! "Lost Children" by Michael Jackson. I LOVE Michael Jackson. I love his attitude towards the life and the world too. This song is so cute! It reminded me of Rickie instantly. I think it's fairly obvious how.

There are two songs that Pandora played for me recently that remind me of MSCL in different ways.

1) Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZoD8JEFjAE&ob=av2e

"He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why"

At first I thought "Ok, so this song is about Angela and Brian." But then I realized it's not exactly like that cause Brian doesn't really say the right things at the right time (nor does anyone in this show, I guess :)) And realistically speaking, IMHO Brian isn't what Angela wants, however deep inside her we may look.

2) The Verve Pipe - The Freshmen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNAp1C8LIw

"I can't be held responsible
'Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place
...
For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe we'd ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen"

I have no idea why it reminds me of MSCL! It's not related to MSCL in terms of plot or theme, but it seems like MSCL could deal with an issue like that. The song is about this guy's girlfriend who had an abortion and then killed herself. I'm not sure MSCL would deal with suicide, but the abortion part I can see being explored.

I guess the "I can't be held responsible" part vaguely reminds me of Jordan's attitude too, in general (not sure about the specific hypothetical context where he gets his girlfriend pregnant).

As long as somebody else dug up the topic...

I never even liked or paid attention to the song "Blister in the Sun" until I saw the show.

My Jared obsession strikes again, so here's another song that reminds me of MSCL in its strange way... it possibly has to do with the lyrics: "I've been thinking of everything I used to want to be, I've been thinking of everything, of me, of you and me. This is the story of my life..."

Name by the Goo Goo Dolls. Always makes me think of Angela and Jordan, particularly Angela's feelings for him.
