A Little Challenge For Ya'll  
My playlist for LS grows larger and larger, but that makes me wonder: Has anyone recently heard a song that made you think of Little Secrets? I'm in need a few new selections to refresh the Muse. Or tell me which songs (other than our tried and true ones) make you think of the fandom. With Act Five coming up and two (maybe three) new oneshots coming up, I need more Muse food. Tell me, tell me!

*removes self from lurking*
A song that reminded me of the fandom when I first heard it was Why Say Anything Nice, by the Barenaked Ladies on the album Barenaked Ladies are Men. I think it's the line about the glasses, and the characteristic of Kal-El to be strong and silent in his Superman guise. It could also apply to the beginning of LS, when Lois is keeping it all bottled up inside and refers to Kal-El on her cellphone as That Damn Man. And then What a Good Boy by the Barenaked Ladies on the album Gordon, for Lois' and Kal-El's relationship. Er, sorta. And a song that reminded me of your hospital scene in Little Secrets was What Sarah Said, by Deathcab for Cutie, on the album Plans.

I have seriously considered songfics with that first one. Hmm.

Here's a link to the lyrics for What A Good Boy

And a link to the lyrics for What Sarah Said

And the link to Why Say Anything Nice? is a very, very long link for some odd reason, and the site has stupid pop-ups, so I'll save you from them by posting here:

Why'd you put your dress shoes on if you didn't come to dance?
Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd stand a chance
Why'd you take your glasses off if you don't intend to fight?
Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd last the night

No screaming or fighting, no scratching or biting
We're just shaking hands goodnight
Sullen and silent, emotionally violent
I waited a while and nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

Why'd you put your backpack on if you won't just take a hike?
Frankly, I'd be out the door if you hadn't sold my bike

No fencing or sparring, no bruising or scarring
And no 'au revoiring' yet
No communication, just alienation
I've tried to be patient but nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice?

Say anything nice, a simple device
That makes everything beautiful just ordinary
Nice can come at a price, forever imbued with all this boredom
Sacrifice can only suffice when something is beautiful

After all the resentment, all the discontentment
The flowers you sent meant nothing, nothing

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?
Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all? (Why say anything nice?...)
You can say nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
Nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
You can say nothing at all
Woo-hoo-hoo
Nothing at all

Hope your muse finds these satisfactory!

Welcome! And thanks for de-lurking on this one, as they're both a great fit. Both songs just got saved. Stick around!
