Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Don't Tell Me"

LYRICS

Just so you know, I cry myself to sleep from night to night. I fear the sunrise because I don’t want to face the world. I’m not what you think I am. I’m about to break. Now I let the night take me away.

No, don’t tell me that you just don’t care because you know that it will break me. Don’t tell me that you feel my pain when you never shed a tear. No, you don’t know what’s good for me. You’re not the thing I need. You’re never there for me.

Take me away. Now I’ll let the night take me away.

Film director and screenwriter Jim Jarmusch makes music an integral part of his films: He often casts musicians in key roles and frequently incorporates music into his plots. Think about his film Down by Law, with saxophonist John Lurie and singer Tom Waits, or Stranger Than Paradise, in which "I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins is a key character.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Girl In the Window"

LYRICS

I was sitting in the window, trying to find the me lost inside, so sad I wanted to cry, felt a drop on the side of my cheek, wiped it away, came running down faster than rain. I didn’t know what to say, so I hid in my room for the rest of the day, and I cried in my pillow.

Sat on my bed, trying to forget all the things that you said. They came back every time that I shut my eyes. I couldn’t fall asleep because my dreams took over the world.

Top 10 Halloween Songs

Ciara Kinzig

I was given the daunting task to come up with a festive Halloween playlist. What to choose, what to choose!?

When I think festive, I think of songs that either epitomize the night of Halloween or go over board to completely do their own thing. It's Halloween, and some songs should a little weird and creative.

Dance Music Looks Beyond EDM And Hopes The Crowd Will Follow

It's 4:30 in the morning in Washington, D.C., and dank pools of sweat are collecting on the dance floor beneath a dripping basement ceiling. I can see Sonny Moore's heart beating through his shirt. The 24-year-old DJ, whose producing alias, Skrillex, is a major keyword for the new wave of American dance music, just wrapped up an intimate surprise show at U Street Music Hall (my local gateway to electronic music and a place where I also DJ from time to time).

Many musicians say that the second album is harder to write than the first, especially when a debut is successful: There's more pressure, higher stakes, fewer ways to surprise and less time to work. The Colombian band Bomba Estéreo faced down that imposing empty canvas when it entered the studio to record a followup to 2009's hit Blow Up.
