songs in Elliott Smith songs

this is the music Elliott Smith referenced within his own music:

1. And he couldn’t complain
Just looked at your lyric and crossed over to play
A record of quiet instrumentals
-Antonio Carlos Jobim

2. The feedback starts and the singer yells
“I’d rather die than give you control”
But he’s already sold the whole damn thing for a big loan
-We’re All Friends Now

3. The bartender’s singing “Clementine”
While he’s turning around the open sign

4. Got me singing along with some half-hearted victory song
-Rose Parade

-Sweet Adeline

6. First the mic then a half cigarette
Singing “Cathy’s Clown”
-Waltz #2 (XO)

“You’re no good. You’re no good…”
-Waltz #2 (XO)

8. The light was on but it was dim
Revolver’s been turned over
-Baby Britain

9. And now it’s ready once again
The radio was playing “Crimson and Clover”
-Baby Britain

10. London Bridge is safe and sound
No matter what you keep repeating
-Baby Britain

11. A blue songbird on his shoulder
Who keeps singing over everything:
“Everything means nothing to me”
-Everything means nothing to me

Pretty enough for you

From the poison well
