Midnight City & Storybook Love

I've been in a writing frenzy today (I'll explain another time), so I'm officially out of steam as far as writing a decent entry is concerned.  But I'm going to cheat like I always do when I'm suffering a blog-inspiration drought and post a song (maybe two.  Yeah, let's go with two). 

This first one came from my sis.  She periodically messages me with songs to download that she thinks I'll like, and I love this one.  I don't know why I love it so much.  It's pretty bizarre.  Plus it probably doesn't help that the video features creepy little kids with super-powers and glowing eyes. 

Anyone else wondering what the hell is wrong with those kids?*  Anyway, this next one is the opposite of creepy.  I adore the movie The Princess Bride, and the end-credits song (Storybook Love) is so darn precious.

I almost followed this with "Damn I Wish I was Your Lover", until I realized how obscene those lyrics are (Damn I wish you were a slightly cleaner song).  That would have been like following a Shirley Temple with a tequila-chaser.

(*After I published this post, I watched the Midnight City video again, and I have to admit, I really like it--minus the glowing eyes at the end.  The video plays out like a miniature movie, complete with interesting plot).
