I’m currently finding quirky narrative songs quite hilarious. So in the vein of Kate Nash and the lovely naive sounding stuff from the Juno soundtrack… have some Soko (accoustic version) – it’s actually quite a bitter song and probably that’s an understatement… but still hilarious and she’s French so we’ll overlook it.

you should check out Joanna Newsom, if you haven’t already. she’s very “narrative” and utterly quirky.
yay i’m glad you found this song! i heard it on the triple j hot 100 this year but didn’t hear who it was by. i like it too….and yes she’s very bitter! a bit less funny when you see her than when you hear her though (looks too serious)
If you like the Juno soundtrack you might be interested to know that Kimya Dawson (who did most of it) is playing in Melbourne on June 17 (http://www.liveguide.com.au/Tours/571513/Kimya_Dawson/Kimya_Dawson_Australian_Tour).
