You always were the one

Well, for me there’s still really only one perfect song for the UborCD.

You always were the one to show me how
Back then I couldn’t do the things that I can do now
This thing is slowly taking me apart
Grey would be the colour, if I had a heart

Happy, and filled with the joys of summer</sarcasm>
Nine Inch Nails’ “Something I Can Never Have“. Dragon will be a happy bunny.
As for reasons? Well, even in the midst of one of the best summer rainy seasons I’ve had, there’s always the awareness that things can go wrong. That’s the secret at the core of my happy-go-lucky soul.

  1. I second that opinion. I presume you mean the original Pretty Hate Machine album version rather than the slightly more mellow (but equally as good IMO) version that was on the second disc of “And All That Could Have Been”
    But damn – I’m going to have to think of an alternative artist now.

  2. Yes, Dragon, I did mean the original. And the only decision I had to make really was between this and “Gave Up” on the Broken EP…

  3. Fruit it, that’s what comes of messing about with one’s details just once.
    Bloody comments system, Bloody Opera, Bloody too many computers. Gah.

  4. Go with ‘Gave Up’, I say. Something I can never have was ruined in much the same way Stairway to Heaven was- too many goths sit down at a piano and just start playing it.
    I love the live version- it sounds like he’s in the room!
    But let’s not forget the third version found on the ‘Natural Born Killers’ soundtrack, with extended pianoey bit and annoying v/o.
