So this morning I was trying to psyche myself up for Torts, and I started in my room, listening to some Final Countdown. (Yes, I have been watching Arrested Development; save our Bluths!)

On the way over to breakfast and the exam, I was trying to come up with torts-appropriate music. I was having a surprisingly hard time. My roommate suggested "In The Air Tonight," which I learned from "Stan" of course was all about no affirmative duty to rescue. I couldn't do any better than that. I got to the room early, put on my headphones, and went to work in Windows Media Player, looking for any appropriate song I could find. Ultimately I only found one that was directly on-point: The Refreshments' "Suckerpunch".

I did, however, notice that while I didn't have many songs that were tortious in and of themselves, I found a number of songs that could easily lead to tortious situations:

  • Indian Giver, 1910 Fruitgum Company
  • Drive My Car, The Beatles

  • Come Out and Play, The Offspring
  • Jagged, Old 97s
  • Such Great Heights, Iron and Wine/Postal Service
  • Someone Take the Wheel, The Replacements
  • Bales of Cocaine, Reverend Horton Heat
