The Rhythm of My Heart

We listened to The Suburbs on the way to the Arcade Fire concert, and I said I was fifty-fifty on "City With No Children", but that I liked the line "city with no children in it", because I tend to like when there are so many syllables that they feel like they won't "fit" in the rhythm allotted to them in. JP and Erica pressed for clarification, so I cited a few moments from other songs:

1) The other Arcade Fire song, "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)": "Well, whatever happened to them?!"

2) "He's A Rebel": "'Cause he never, ever does, what he should."

3) "It Hurts To Be In Love": "...not in love with you!"

JP then asked if The Darkness' "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" counted. "Just listen to the rhythm of my heart." Exactly!
