Title please?

I can’t come up with a header for the main blog page.

Suggestions?

Ack.  I cannot get Metric’s “Help, I’m Alive” out of my head.  (Metric: Electronic, new wave, dance/synth pop group formed in 1998 in Brooklyn, NY; 3 representative albums to date.)

While this song is one of my favorites by Metric (including the acoustic version as well), it’s stuck in my head because the repetitive line in this song–my heart keeps beating like a hammer, beating like a hammer–is drumming along with my headache. You know, beatin’ like a hammer.

The band had released the following video, a short film by Deco Dawson, as the song’s official video.   It’s nothing I ever would’ve come up with for the video, but it is obviously carefully crafted and works extremely well with the song.
