Your Ex-Lover Is Dead by Stars
I stole this suggestion from a friend. This wonderful whimsical 2005 melody, Your Ex-Lover Is Dead, comes from the Canadian indie pop group, Stars, on their album, Set Yourself on Fire. That guy in the beginning is actually lead singer Torquil’s father Douglas Campbell saying, “When there is nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.”
The song was featured on the Season 5 finale of the TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation, and on the soundtrack of a 2008 film called ‘Caos Calmo’ (or Quiet Chaos).
