Music for November
Since another month has passed and it’s starting to get increasingly frigid outside, and without the warmth of a woman’s flesh to get my mind through the day, I decided to see what I could do with a search for “November” in my music.
Admittedly, this is only my music at work, but it’s nevertheless very poor. Someone do better!
Julie Doiron – Snow Falls in November
It all started so well. Julie Doiron is a Canadian singer/songwriter (seem to have a lot of female singer/songwriters out lately!) who’s been around for ages and ages, and this was the track she submitted as a taster for SXSW ‘06.

Guns N’ Roses – November Rain
November Rain goes on for ages, and it’s really quite boring except for the chorus, and the video’s really annoying. I mean, really, what the hell’s going on? Everything’s fine, then the woman trips over the table on her wedding day, and dies. What the shit? How can tripping over a table on your wedding day confine you to a coffin, and more interestingly, why is Slash playing an ultra-long solo at your funeral, you freak?

Morrissey – November Spawned a Monster
Morrissey. He’s a strange one, he is, you’d think with his quiff and whatnot that he’d be quite happy with his lot in life and wouldn’t be depressed at all or really moody. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, he’s a right moody bastard and he’s always going on about how he wants to die or how he’s blind or how some other guy died and he hates his life. Moany git. And with lyrics like these, how could anyone hate him?
The poor twisted child, You’re just so ugly, so ugly

I avoided putting in Gorrilaz – November Has Come because I didn’t like it, and after straining to the point of a blood vessel exploding all over my desk I also avoided putting Regina Spektor’s On The Radio in because it namechecks November Rain, but christ, it was a struggle.
