"One Time Too Many" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
He's seen me
So clearly
Come over
And get my number

He'd come round
He'd break down
Say baby
Don't ever leave me

He'd please me
He'd tease me
One time too
One time too many

    General CommentJazzy, rocky, energetic, and short enough to listen to when in a rush to go out on a mission. I first heard this on the Batman Forever OST and it really is a great song. The lyrics can be taken many ways, what mood are you in?

    General CommentLove this song. The vibe makes me want to go crazy, let go of my inhibitions, and indulge in completely destructive behavior. My interpretation of the song is tainted by the fact that I first heard it accompanied by Brenda's rampage through her apartment in Six Feet Under. Still, it perfectly fit the mood and that meaning is good enough for me.

    The lyrics themselves... they're about the progression of a relationship. The guy gets her number, they get together, it devolves into a rhythm of him being mopey and needing support, and she finally says "enough!"

    General CommentThe man in the song is depicted as whiny and pathetic.

    The woman is fed up with it.
