Point/Counterpoint

VS.

Point:

Here’s the deal, sweetheart. If you leave me and go out with another dude, I will track you down and murder you. No joke. Not kidding around. I’ll put that on a record, so EVERYONE knows. You’ll never turn a corner or open a door without wondering if I’m waiting around it or on the other side ready to make you sorry you ever met me, let alone left me.

The Beatles – Run For Your Life (Buy It)

Counterpoint:

Eeeesh. Boy, was I an asshole. Yeah, can you kind of just forget all of that other nonsense?

John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band – Jealous Guy (Buy It)

VS.

Point:

The American attitude is one of domination, as long as they don’t have to get off their couch to have it. Americans are obsessed with guns, movie stars, cars, religion and being right, to a degree that is severely unhealthy to themselves and the rest of the world.

David Bowie – I’m Afraid of Americans (feat. Trent Reznor) (Buy It)

Counterpoint:

F that noise. I just wanna dance.

LCD Soundsystem – North American Scum (Buy It)

Anybody have any others? Drop ’em in the comment box! Also, be sure to check out the video for that Bowie song here, it’s one of my favorites.

  1. awesome post. Have you heard the donny hathaway live cover of “jealous guy”. It’s awesome—-I actually didn’t know it was a lennon cover. Thanks much.

  2. I haven’t heard the Donny Hathaway version, man, but now I’m pretty intrigued… Any chance you could email it to me?
    Thanks for commenting, and I’m glad I could entertain/inform.
