Five Best...Songs from Making Movies

#5. "Solid Rock"

Because the heart that you break
That's the one that you rely on
The bed that you make,
That's the one you gotta lie on
When you point your finger, 'cause your plan fell through
You got three more fingers pointing back at you

#4. "Espresso Love"

She gets the sun in the daytime,
Perfume in the dusk.
And she comes out in the night time,
With the honeysuckle musk

#3. "Skateaway"

She gets rock 'n' roll, a rock 'n' roll station
And a rock 'n' roll dream
She's making movies on location
She doesn't know what it means
But the music make her wanna be the story
And the story was whatever was the song, what is was
Roller-girl don't worry
DJ play the movies all night long

#2. "Tunnel of Love"

And the big wheel keep on turning, neon burning up above
And I'm just high on the world
Come on, and take a low ride with me, girl
On the tunnel of love

#1. "Romeo and Juliet"

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?"

On a separate Dire Straits note, I walked into the Lemongrass Grill restaurant sometime last night around 1 a.m. I was hoping to get some chicken pad thai, but was instead treated to "Sultans of Swing" being totally butchered by a balding man in his 40s with a slew of Asian woman all around him.

And I also couldn't get my pad thai. What a terrible, terrible experience it was.
