I am NOT thinking of Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy."

I'm trying like crazy to find the name of a song I heard playing earlier that I was unable to identify at the time. It is an indie-rock type of song with a long, slow build of an airy female voice singing in this repetitive rhythm. The voice is pretty heavily layered and processed, but it sounded like some of the lines were things like, "Parking our cars, sleeping on lawns" but the google's do nothing but bring up that damn Lit song, which is absolutely not what it was. So now this is driving me crazy and I really want to get this song. Hope me?

Best answer: Broken Social Scene, Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl? "Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me" are the lyrics.

Response by poster: It really is just impossibly gorgeous (though I can imagine it getting on someone's nerves pretty easily too.)

And yeah, the opening vocal lines (different lyrics than the ones spaet quotes) matches up pretty closely for melody with the main guitar riff of My Own Worst Enemy. Odd.
