Your Stuck in my Head Song of the Day

I remember when I was young and Garbage first made it big. I decided then that if I were in a punk or hard rock band that the name would definitely be sewage. I've grown out of that phase, I think, but I still kind of have a soft spot in my heart for Garbage and that really kick ass Shirley Manson of the mid to late 90s ( i think i may be gay for girls with red hair) Anyway I first discovered this song through one of Christine Daniels' "postmodern girl" mixes , or maybe I didn't but I know it was mentioned there and the author suggested how it was being sung about a trans kid (which it sort of was, being inspired by the faux j.t. leroy) something you can easily pick up from the lyrics

She gave you everything she had
But she was young and dumb
She'd just turned twenty-one
She didn't care to hang around
So when the shit came down
Why she was nowhere to be found
This life can turn a good girl bad
She was the sweetest thing
That you had ever seen

You're such a delicate boy
In the hysterical realm
Of an emotional landslide
In physical terms

With your cherry lips and golden curls
You could make grown men gasp
When you'd go walking past them
In your hot pants and high heels
They could not believe
That such a body was for real
It seemed like rainbows would appear
Whenever you came near the clouds would disappear
Because you looked just like a girl
Your baby blues would flash
And suddenly a spell was cast

You hold a candle in your heart
You shine the light on hidden parts
You make the whole world wanna dance
You bought yourself a second chance

Go Baby Go Go
We're right behind you
Go baby Go Go
Yeah we're looking at you
Go baby Go Go
Aw we're right behind you
Go Baby
Go Baby
Yeah we're looking at you

oh and it's a incredible fun and fabulously song to strut to ;)
yeah and I know it's kind of poppy and upbeat, especially for a monday but it has actually been in my head since i woke up this morning, and plus I'm trying to be a little happier right now and I didn't think anyone wanted to hear any Partridge Family so here it is Your Stuck in My Head Song of the Day: Garbage's Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!)
