A Failure Playlist #3: Relationships

Here's the third playlist based on a song from "A Failure." This time it's "Relationships," inspired by "The Comet I Was Waiting For," and contains songs by Fiona Apple, Kevin Quain, Soft Cell, The Mountain Goats and The Blue Nile.


I've spoken a lot about "Comet" in various places, so I'll spare you from the whole story here, but, in a miserable nutshell, it's about blaming everyone other than myself for my failings, and looking everywhere other than at myself for a solution. It has some jokes in it, too. The first verse is a bit of a play on Leonard Cohen's "Is This What You Wanted?" and the "Peggy" in the final verse is Ms. Peggy Lee.
