After a night of feeling like a rather squarish peg amongst round-headers, here’s what is currently on my playlist:

Ron Sexsmith

Garden State soundtrack

Azure Ray

Chantal Kreviazuk

Jeff Buckley

Sarah Slean

Coldplay

Aimee Mann

Joss Stone

Cowboy Junkies

Johnny Cash

Jonatha Brooke

Natalie Merchant

Remy Zero

The Shins

I’m calling it my melacholy mix. It’s quite the ecclectic collection.

Here’s one of the songs:

IMAGINARY FRIENDS

Ron Sexsmith

Imaginary friends

They will always let you down

And when all the good times end

You won’t be seeing them around

For they run where the action is

And they’ll cross you off their list

Do you comprehend now

To imaginary friends

You don’t exist

No

They’ll ask you where you’ve been

But never wait for your reply

They’ll meet you when your ship comes in

But never meet you eye to eye

As all the friends who’ve been real and true

Wonder who you’re talkin’ to

One thing you can depend on

Imaginary friends

They can’t see you

No

You can paint them a beautiful picture

But they won’t understand

You can count all your friends on the fingers

Of one scalded hand

Imaginary friends

They will always leave you hanging…

And you won’t see them again

For they’ve gone where the action is

And they’ve crossed you off their list

Do you comprehend now

Imaginary friends

They don’t exist

No

Imaginary friends

They don’t exist

No no no
