They're playing my song

As keener-eyed readers of this blog may probably have noticed, I've recently been going through one of my "episodes". Or "the unpleasantness". Call it what you will, it's not very nice.

Luckily, my friends are very nice. A dear friend of mine, who could easily have a successful career talking people down from window ledges should they wish to pursue one, was really very patient and understanding and one thing they said is really sticking in my mind: be kind to yourself. This may sound very simple for you normies out there, but for ranting, drooling maniacs like me it's often the first thing that gets tossed to one side.

So in the spirit of being kind to myself (and also doing things I like doing), I have made a list of all the songs currently on my iPod that are entirely about me, no arguments. And here it is.
  1. Air - Sexy Boy
  2. The Beach Boys - Fun Fun Fun
  3. The Beatles - Hey Bulldog*
  4. Bob Dylan - Forever Young
  5. Carly Simon - Nobody Does It Better
  6. The Clash - White Riot
  7. Dusty Springfield - Son of a Preacher Man*
  8. Gene Vincent - Wild Cat
  9. Giorgio Moroder - Too Hot to Handle
  10. Girls Aloud - Love Machine
  11. Ice T - Pimp Anthem*
  12. John Lennon - Working Class Hero
  13. Marvin Gaye - You're A Wonderful One*
  14. R.E.M. - Superman
* OK, so these songs are actually about me

I always suspected that you were highly connected in showbiz.

Please introduce me to Michael Stipe.

I wonder if I use enough product and blow dry them exactly right, I could make pubepoms.

Working class hero? Really? I'd not confine myself to a class - I am an all 'round hero.

I mean, obviously I am U, but I appeal to non-Us as well, obviously.
