Great Songwriters Think Alike

Bizarre coincidence.

Aimee Mann, "Little Tornado," one the best tracks from her latest album @#%&*! Smilers:
Little tornado
Bane of the trailer park
Lifting houses to leave your mark...

Make it go faster
Baby go faster
Make it go twice the speed of you and me

Little tornado
You and the hurricane

Close your eyes and go campaign

And from "Last Day of Magic," the best song off The Kills' latest album, Midnight Boom:
Last day of magic
Where are you?
My little tornado
My little hurricano

We're two parties
Two parties ending
I'll be the man with the broom
If you'll be the dust of the room...

(Both albums well worth buying, by the way.)
