So Belle and Sebastian has a version of The Primitive's song "Crash"

Kinda lame, really (or "pallid" as Pitchfork put it). At least compared to the original:

That was one my hott tracks of the late 1980's, big time. The Primitives didn't really have that many great songs -- "Way Behind Me" was the only one that really kicked.

got no words of sympathy
and if I go around with you
you know I'll be messed up too

Songs glorifying good behavior are kind of odd birds. Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes" comes to mind. It seems to be more exciting to listen to self-destructive stuff -- Britney Spears' "Freakshow," Rihanna and Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" -- just about anything by Amy Winehouse.
