As any of my regular readers have probably noticed I have this thing for the band “Garbage”. This comes as a surprise to some people. Still haven’t totally figured that one out yet.

On the same day I was about to put an order in on Amazon, I was able to snag a copy of the new CD “Bleed Like Me” from my totally cool boss. (Just in case he ever reads this.)

I can’t get the song that’s on the charts out of my head “Why Do You Love Me”. It’s very catchy and I’m just stuck on it.

“I’m no Barbie doll
I’m not your baby girl
I’ve done ugly things
And I have made mistakes
And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
I am rotten to my core if they’re to be believed

So what if I’m no baby bird hanging upon your every word
Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It’s driving me crazy (3x’s)

You’re not some little boy
Why you acting so surprised
You’re sick of all the rules
Well I’m sick of all your lies
Now I’ve held back a wealth of shit
I think I’m gonna choke
I’m standing in the shadows
With the words stuck in my throat
Does it really come as a surprise
When I tell you I don’t feel good
That nothing ever came from nothing man
Oh man ain’t that the truth”

It’s funny how things hit you.
To drink and blog can be dangerous.
