we are sleek and beautiful, we are cursed

okay, i need some help. i am trying to remember songs that have the sound of glass breaking. i had a friend who really liked a particular song with a bottle breaking, but i can't remember the friend or the song.

Are you thinking of the _Shattered Glass_ soundtrack?

Or the Jason and the Scorchers song _Broken Whiskey Glass_?

Is the friend Careyoke? Is she worried that Joshie won't be able to break the glass at their wedding?

Bjork's "Army of Me" starts out with glass breaking.

Oh, Belle! If Joshie can't break the glass, I got his back. In fact, I am wanting a double-stomp on the glass anyway. We'll need a sizeable glass.

Speaking of songs with glass breaking, in Duran Duran's "Rio" there's a sound that's sort of like that, but it actually seems more like glass being stuck back together (or the glass breaking sound going backwards). Am I crazy, or is that the case?

there's a song on the first LeTigre album with lots of smashing glass, but I don't know the title. it's the one about the role of the artist. plus there's "you may be right" by Billy Joel.

Careyoke!
When I got married, instead of a two-step stomp, we used two rabbis. Plus my husband smashed a light bulb instead of a glass. "Makes more of a pop, " the younger rabbi told me.
Mazel tov to you and your Joshie!
