When your boyfriend actually makes for a better girl than you…
Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue - Where The Wild Roses Grow
Counting Crows - Accidentally in Love
The National - Mr. November
Some tell me it’s not obvious what this song is about and it always sounded so clear and actually beyond interpretation I though maybe it’s good to share just in case.
Mr. November is the President of the United States of America (or supposedly an equal relevant leader, though the song is very heavily drawing from american symbology and culture). Now I’m not saying it’s about *a* specific president, but that the storytelling perspective is the one of the President. November being the month they have elections in the US, and other references such as “I’m the new blue blood” clearly point out to that. There’s also a somewhat political line in "The English are waiting and I don’t don’t what to do" or even "I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders" which, for what I understand of American Culture, is a demonstration and definition of popularity in school, which politics who are "grown" for high positions are subject from a very early age.
