I have a song by a band named Death Cab for Cutie, and the LA discussion reminded me of how good it was.
We haven't had one of these in awhile so post your favorite song lyrics.

I’m in Los Angeles today it smells like an airport runway. Jet fuel stenches in the cabin and lights flickering at random. I’m in Los Angeles to day: Garbage cans comprise the medians of freeways always creeping even when the populations sleeping. And I can’t see why you’d want to live here. I’m in Los Angeles today asked a gas station employee if he ever had trouble breathing and he said, “It varies from season to season, kid.” Its where our best are on display: motion pictures, actors’ houses maps are never ever current. So save your film and fifteen dollars. And I can’t see why you’d want to live here. Billboards reach past the tallest building, “We are not prefect but we sure try’ as UV rays “degredate” our youth with time. The vessel keeps pumping us through this entropic place in the belly of the beast that is Californ-i-a. I drank from a faucet and kept my receipt for when they weigh me on the way out (here nothing is free). The greyhounds keep coming dumping locusts into te street until the gutters overflow and Los Angeles thinks. “I might explode someday soon.” It’s a lovely summer’s day and I ca almost see a skyline through a thickening shroud of egos. (is this the city of angels or demons) Here the names are what remain: stars encapsulate the gold lame and they need constant cleaning for when the tourists begin salivating. You can’t swim in a town this shallow- You will most assuredly drown tomorrow.

You should here the song as the guitar seems to get heavier and madder as the song moves on.
