Pop song about a girl who apologizes to nerdy high school boy?

Songfilter: I heard this pop song in a mall a couple of months ago and its memoryworming me in a particularly annoying way. The singer addresses a nerdy/geeky boy she knew in high school and essentially apologizes for the bad treatment he got from her and her popular friends. (At least in my memory its a girl singing. Could be wrong.) Seems like it should be Taylor Swift or something but googling lyrics is killing me and everyone I know is too old to ask.

Please give me a name to this song I just heard

I just heard this on the local NPR station. Lyrics were about the opening of the seven seals and in the chorus, the singer sings "I'm the Revelator, I'm the Apostle John." And no, the song was not John the Revelator. The singer was pretty gruff, on a level with Tom Waits but I don't think it was him. I did lyrics searches on Google and found only a dozen versions of "John the Revelator".

I can sing the numbers bit with gusto, at least

Could a discerning ear try to puzzle out the lyrics to "01-01-212" by the Vice Creems? They never made more than a couple of singles, so of course there isn't anything online. Still, the song's catchy.

One of those nights when I miss Lester Black?

I was in Ernie Tubbs Record Shop in Nashville a couple weeks ago and they were playing a song whose only lyric I can remember is something like "one of those nights when I miss Lester Black." The lyric was repeated often as part of the refrain. It was a country song, it sounded sort of old and had a melancholic feel to it. That is, unfortunately, all I can remember. I can't get that lyric out of my head and I really want to know what song it is. Google hasn't been any help. Please satiate my curiosity, it is driving me nuts!

What do Brigitta and Louisa mean by their lines in "So Long, Farewell"?

In the song "So Long, Farewell" from The Sound of Music, why does Brigitta sing "I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie" (i.e. is she tired? is she bored by the grown-ups?), and why does Louisa sing "I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly" (does she, too, want to get out of there? is she half-asleep?)? Are their lines meant to be interpreted as somehow related, since they do a little dance together immediately afterwards? Yes, this is settle-an-argument filter, so I'm looking for canonical or otherwise authoritative info, not just casual speculation.

beautiful, female singer, strange lyrics

I'm trying to find a singer/song-writer who I heard for the first time 3 years ago. She had a soft, high, very feminine voice, and the lyrics were entirely nonsensical (although grammatically correct), detailed descriptions of bizarre circumstances. This might not be true of all of her songs, but I remember, many times, thinking "god this song is beautiful... /wait/ what's it about?!" [more inside]
