You're So Mean

Best song ever...or BEST SONG EVER! Don't even argue with me. Seriously.


Precious
The Pretenders

I LIKE THE WAY YOU CROSS THE STREET 'CAUSE YOUR PRECIOUS 
MOVING THROUGH THE CLEVELAND HEAT HOW PRECIOUS 
TAKING RIDES AND ALL THE KICKS WAS SO PRECIOUS 
BUT YOU KNOW I WAS SHITTIN' BRICKS 'CAUSE I'M PRECIOUS 
MADE ME WANNA, 
MADE ME WANNA, 
YOU MADE ME MAKE IT 
OH, YOU'RE SO MEAN 
EAST 55TH AND EUCLID AVENUE WAS REAL PRECIOUS 
HOTEL STERLING COMING INTO VIEW HOW PRECIOUS 
IT'S A PITY THAT YOU BRUISED MY HIP 'CAUSE I'M PRECIOUS 
YOU SHOULDN'T LET YOUR MANNERS SLIP YOU'RE TOO PRECIOUS 
MADE ME WANNA, 
MADE ME WANNA, 
YOU MADE ME MAKE IT 
OH, YOU'RE SO MEAN 
WE WENT AROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND THE SHOREWAY WE WAS A DUET DUET DUET DUET DO IT ON THE PAVEMENT 
OH MAYBE MAYBE I'M GONNA HAVE A BABY 
WE WAS A DUET OH WE DO IT ALL NIGHT 

I WAS FEELING KIND OF ETHEREAL 'CAUSE I'M PRECIOUS 
I HAD MY EYE ON YOUR IMPERIAL YOU'RE SO PRECIOUS 
NOW HOWARD THE DUCK AND MR STRESS BOTH STAYED 
"TRAPPED IN A WORLD THAT THEY NEVER MADE" 
BUT NOT ME BABY I'M TOO PRECIOUS I HAD TO FUCK OFF 
MADE ME WANNA, MADE ME WANNA, YOU MADE ME MAKE IT 
OH, YOU'RE SO MEAN

Okay so I won't argue. I'll just sit here with my arms crossed and ignore you. So there.

How can you not love a song that works in a Howard The Duck reference? this seems like a good time to reiterate my point that someone needs to make a faithful adaptation of Howard the Duck for the silver screen.
I also had...Okay, still such a crush on Chrissie Hynde, but I like hamburgers waaaay too much for it to ever work out.

RW - "Well, what am I supposed to do? You won't answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I'm not gonna be ignored, Dan!"

Paticus - Your Howard the Duck thing...yeah, I don't get it.

I love when a bunch of tweets about an awesome band turns into a blog post.

Love this song. The live version of this song is good, too.
