  1. A holiday song

"The Twelve Pains of Christmas" - Bob Rivers

The ninth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
Finding parking spaces
Facing my in-laws
Five months of bills!

  2. A spring song

"Spring Street" - Dar Williams

And I can't believe what they're saying
They're saying I can change my mind
Start over on Spring Street
I'm welcome anytime

  3. A sleeping song

"Sleep" - Melissa Etheridge

I want to lay down on your shoulder
Just inside your arm
I want to listen to your heart beat
And your breathing on and on
I want to lay down on your shoulder
Surrender to your peace
And go to sleep

  4. A sugared song

"Josephine" - The Magnetic Fields

If I were Napoleon, you could be my Josephine.

  5. A fierce song

"Born a Lion" - Ani DiFranco

why we all gotta look
gotta act the same
i say
if you're born a lion
don't bother trying to act tame

  6. A mysterious song

"China" - Tori Amos

All the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close

  7. A yearning song

"Secret Affliction" - Immaculate Machine

My secret affliction
My quiet addiction
Your lovely eyes are finding
The voice that holds its grip on me

  8. A satisfied song

"The Polka-Dancing Bus Driver And the 40-Year-Old Mystery" - Christine Lavin

Now I am not a braggart
but I can say with pride and joy
that I've been graceful on my feet
since I was a little boy
people stop now and watch us dancing
now we know that we must look smooth
my wife and I know by heart
all of each other's moves

[I was tempted to use instead "Shopping Cart of Love: The Play."]

  9. A mourning song

"Goodnight Elisabeth" - Counting Crows

I woke up in pieces and Elisabeth had disappeared again
I wish you were inside of me
I hope that you're ok
I hope you're resting quietly
I just wanted to say
Goodnight Elisabeth

  10. A kind song

"Love Takes the Best of You" - Catie Curtis

Every night when I watch you sleep
I want to watch over you forever
Keep you safe with me
And I wish I could promise you a beautiful world
That would never break your heart
Maybe that's what we are here for
We try and fix what comes apart

  11. A pure song

"Carol of the Bells" - George Winston


  12. A bitter song

"Why I Don't Believe in God" - Everclear

Mama they woke me up
I was deep in an idiot sleep
I was just eight years old
Heard big words with a horrible sound
Why'd they have to call my school
Tell me my mother had a nervous breakdown
