A Date with the Trashmeister
John Waters's take on romance is bound to be an unusual one (witness this line from Pink Flamingos: 'Oh, I love you, Raymond. Oh, God, I love you more than the sound of bones breaking, the sound of the death rattle''). Until the A Date with John Waters CD makes its way to iTunes (you reading this, iTunes?!), we'd like to remind you of some great tracks that have appeared in Waters's films Pecker, Serial Mom, Hairspray, and Cecil B. Demented. Read about Waters's thoughts on love in the February issue of Out magazine.
