Comment:

A disillusion with love mix. The whole mix deals with different stages of disillusion, from affirmation ("I'm no one's little girl") to depression ("do you remember the first time?") to anger ("the things that used to drive me wild still drive me wild...") to pure defeat ("no one will ever you honestly"). And maybe there's even a hint of hope in the last track. Although most of the songs are told from a male perspective, I still feel they can apply to a female as well, as most love songs apply to everyone.

Title taken from the Jesus and Mary Chain track.
