Soundtrack of my life (topic 2)  
Everything about Xander L. Harris in musical form. I had a few other songs on there but for embarassment sake I decided not to put them on here.

1. Wheatus-Teenage Dirtbag
I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby
I so used to be.

2. T.a.t.u.-Clowns (Can you see me now?)
Clowns that only let you know
Where you let your senses go
Clowns all around you
It's a cross I need to bear

All this black and cruel despair
This is an emergency
Don't you hide your eyes from me
Open them and see me now

Can you see me now?

Something about high school aged girls who are lesbians (at least they pretend to be, according to Will) make it okay that they are singing about clowns. Even though clowns are the scariest.thing.ever.

3. Ozzy Osbourne-Road to Nowhere
Through all the happiness and sorrow
I guess I’d do it all again
Live for today and not tomorrow
It’s still the road that never ends

Very few things I would change about my life.

4. The Wannadies-You & Me Song

You and me always..
You tell me I'm a real man
and try to look impressed
Not very convincing
But you know I love it

This song is so about Will, Buff, and I. Except for the whole part about kissing. A lot of the time I think when I have felt less than manly they have reminded me that even though they are both girls I can keep my manhood. And I really don't mean for that to sound as cavemanish as it does sound.

5. The Fuggs-Boobs alot!
Do you like boobs alot?
Gotta like boobs alot!

That's basically the whole song. I think it's a give in why I like it.

6. Meatloaf-Life is a lemon and I Want My Money Back
It's always something
There's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee
That's what this is all about

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie, and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and i want my money back!

This song pretty much describes itself with the title. When I am having a bad day I can just listen to it and feel better thinking about the fact that the singers name is Meatloaf. It also makes me feel better about my appearance by thinking about what Meatloaf looks like. Kinda like... meatloaf. Yick!

7. The Rolling Stones-You Can't Always Get What You Want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

Too true. Goes back to that whole thing about everything happening for a reason. Gotta believe that.

8. Paul Simon-Obvious Child
Sonny sits by his window and thinks to himself
How it’s strange that some rooms are like cages
Sonny’s yearbook from high school
Is down from the shelf
And he idly thumbs through the pages
Some have died
Some have fled from themselves
Or struggled from here to get there
Sonny wanders beyond his interior walls
Runs his hand through his thinning brown hair

Well I’m accustomed to a smoother ride
Maybe I’m a dog that’s lost his bite
I don’t expect to be treated like a fool no more
I don’t expect to sleep the night
Some people say a lie is just a lie
But I say the cross is in the ballpark
Why deny the obvious child?

That's gonna be me in 10 years. Wait, that's me now. That is if I still had access to one of our high school yearbooks.

9. Johnny Cash-Fools Hall of Fame
If I live to be a hundred
I know I can't forget the day
that I broke the heart you gave me
and let you walk away
that's the day
they laid my name, in the fools hall of fame

Country music has always been the perfect music of self-mockery and when I need to wallow in pain. It was on repeat for a few weeks after I left Anya at the altar. Patsy Cline and Mr. Cash are big time players during those times.

10. Tom Petty-Won't Back Down
Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Not so easy to be the non-superpowered one sometimes. That doesn't mean that I am gonna roll over and play dead though either.

11. Barenaked Ladies-Another Postcard (Chimpanzees)
Somehow they followed me even though I packed and moved my home
No matter what, they come and they come they won't leave me alone
Another monkey in the mail could make me lose my mind
But look at me shuffling through the stack until I finally find

All the cards that Will and I have exchanged through the years even on our fifth birthdays have had chimps or some form of primate on them. This song reminds me of that.

12. David Gray-Hospital Food
Just a little something for the pain
Hospital food getting you down?
Honey now I'm not one to complain
But this hangin' around
Is wearing me out

So patch me up boys take me home
Are you not hearing a word I say?

Hospital food is really the worst. Having to go to the hospital is the actual worst worst.

13. Saliva-Bleed For Me
All I ever wanted
was to be what you needed
cause something so strong
it could never be wrong.
And all I can promise
is to say what I'm feeling
We've made it so long

You coming to my new years party/faith's ... um wedding reception?
Xander L. Harrisrespectcruller on December 31st, 2005 06:15 am (UTC)
*chokes on beer*

Faith's WHAT?! Faith is getting married? Faith? Are you talking about Faith as in 'kills bad things with sharp sticks like Buff,' Faith?

Anyways, um, when is it? What time does it start tomorrow?
Dawn Summersroundthedawn on December 31st, 2005 06:19 am (UTC)
No, Faith GOT MARRIED! To my friend Harry. You really missed it. They eloped, it was big news. Lots of drama. Turns out Angel is in love with Faith - but I didn't tell you that. God I'm such a gossip, I don't mean to be.

It's whenever you feel like showing up. Christina O at the marina. I'll be there sometime after 8 to make sure everythings going well I think.

Woah, Faith is married. So he's cool then? Since you are friends with him and all? And, does he know that she is a slayer.

I'll see what I can do. I've been hoping that Anya would call me actually. I guess I should give up hope on that huh?
Dawn Summersroundthedawn on December 31st, 2005 06:36 am (UTC)
Re: ditto the locked
Well it's kind of an open thing, that I don't completely understand but hey whatever. Harry's really cool. I don't think he knows; but he does know Angel's a vampire that's in love with Faith. So who knows.

Anya's coming!

Re: ditto the locked
Yes... but she didn't call me to go with her. Then if I show up she'd totally accuse me of following her/stalking her whatever.

Hey, it's not like I haven't watched Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve by myself before... no way! Is he even still alive?

Re: ditto the locked
So, pretend I didn't tell you she was coming.

Re: ditto the locked
She'd so know. She always knows when I'm lying. She says that my eyes get beadier or something.

Re: ditto the locked
Come on Xander. You miss her right?
Xander L. Harris: badmanrespectcruller on December 31st, 2005 06:44 am (UTC)
Re: ditto the locked
Yes, of course I do. I've been missing her for quite a while now. That doesn't change how she feels. I think she is more interested in Andrew now then she is in me.

Re: ditto the locked
What can it hurt? I mean really.
toomany_letters on December 31st, 2005 06:31 am (UTC)
Oh my GOD. Please don't tell me there's a song by those like, foreign "lesbians for publicity" whores on that list.
Xander L. Harris: sweatervestrespectcruller on December 31st, 2005 06:33 am (UTC)
Hey... I didn't say that they were musical geniuses (geni?) but they sure are hot.
toomany_letters on December 31st, 2005 06:39 am (UTC)
If you go for that whole dirty, slutty, bad dye job in a plaid skirt, I guess.
Xander L. Harris: ugly shirtrespectcruller on December 31st, 2005 06:41 am (UTC)
You just aren't getting it.

Girls. Kissing each other. In school girl outfits.

Dammit, I need to go take a shower now.
toomany_letters on December 31st, 2005 06:45 am (UTC)
Apparently not. Maybe it's the whole missing of the y chromosome thing.
William the Bloody2ndsouledvamp on December 31st, 2005 05:56 pm (UTC)
Anything remotely cool about this went away the moment you used a Meatloaf song. Really.
