- 3. "Wave of Mutilation" by Pixies: "I can't say why this song moves me so much. I don't even know what it's about. I think I just hadn't ever heard the word 'mutilation' sound so poignant."
- 4. "4th of July" by Aimee Mann: "Another songwriter it's hard to choose from. So dryly observant, but never cold. I listened to her more than anything else when I was writing the Buffy musical."
- 5. "Unsatisfied" by The Replacements: "Yes. Yes I am."
- 6. "Top of the World" by Dixie Chicks: "What's great about the album Home (apart from, like, every track) is that it has the most beautiful little lullaby at the end, which any other country album would proudly go out on… and then comes 'Top of the World', an epic, heart-rending cry of rancor and doubt. Even before the Dumb People of the World turned on them, the Dixie Chicks were poking at that shell."
- 7. "Sorry" by Nerf Herder: "'Sorry' is to break-up songs what Kiss Me Deadly is to noir films – it's the end of the road. This is as pathetic as you can get, and I relate to it in ways I don't intend to explain. Plus it's hilarious."
- 8. "Help Yourself" by The Posies: "What's worse than break-ups? Divorce. This whole album soars, but nothing hits quite like this little track. Puns ‘n' drums rolling at us with equal impact."
- 9. "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)" by The Judds: "Country? Yup. Corny? S'pose. Classic? F**kin' A. Just as sweet a harmony as ever was, delicately layered right over a world of pain and confusion. Well before Dixie hatched her Chicks, here was the kind of country that comforts not because it has the answers, but because it gently reminds us that nobody does."

This is truly a very solid playlist. It's got a nice "dark" side to it I suppose, but it has a lot of passion in it. Great song choice Mr. Whedon.
You can really tell a lot about a person through their musical choices. Very nice.
