John Grant's TC & Honeybear from the Queen of Denmark CD.  
This song is in the middle of the film "Weekend," when the two guys are staring out the window.  Grant admits that he does not have much luck in the love department.  According to him, TC was in his life for a while, then gone.  Other songs in the album are sung to him.  The song is more about Grant's vulnerability and insecurity than it is about TC.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Sophia, the Dave & Chris video could only appeal to a sick mind---I LOVED it. :)

What I offer here is the  Prom Scene, which ended Season 1 of QAF.  I may be the only QAF freak in BetterMost, but my grizzled, old, far-too-romantic heart beats faster when I see it.  Don't worry about the sad ending--Justin recovers and all is well.  As they dance, watch the expression on Brian's (the older man's) face--hot.

Hi X-man

Havn´t seen QAF before...looks very interesting. I will check it out, when I get  my senses back to normal. Until then enjoy Dave & Chris the deluxe version, with a speghetti Western theme.

This is Tom Rush's Driving Wheel from the 1970 album, and is the best version of the song there is.
Imagine your lover is away, and is going to be delayed getting back to you, and then the phone rings.  This is everyone's ultimate fantasy phone call:

<John Grant & Midlake - I Wanna Go to Marz> done by positive viber
From what I know about Grant, this seems to be about his teenage years in a small town (Parker, CO to be exact).  He contrasts the cloyingly sweet "malt shop" young, straight love scene with his real desire to "go to Marz" where "your sweet 16 is waiting for you after the show...where you'll get your heart's desire...(and) I will meet you under the lights."  If you know the small town high school scene and its alienation, you can relate to this song, particularly if you are gay.  This is the song which ends "Weekend."

<John Grant - Sigourney Weaver> done by Mr.Tappis14
This appears to describe Grant's feelings the day after he learned he was HIV positive.  The Sigourney Weaver title refers to Alien, the great AIDS-metaphor film.  His is a stark view of his situation, and in an interview Grant talks about his "not having a future."  It is not an easy song to listen to if you are HIV-positive, or have spent time with your HIV-positive brothers and sisters.
