I Crush Everything
|I Crush Everything|
|Release||Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow|
"I Crush Everything" is the third track on Jonathan Coulton's second album, Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow. The song is about a giant squid that wants to be with a woman on the surface, but cannot because he would kill her if he tried. The song is listed as a "sad song" on the Listening Suggestions page.
 Live performance
"I Crush Everything" is performed somewhat regularly at Jonathan Coulton concerts. Usually prefaced with a short explanation, "This song is about a self-loathing giant squid", the live version is essentially the same as the version on "Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow".
- Jonathan has said that when he was writing this song, he hadn't initially settled on it being about a giant squid, but more of just a generic sea monster.
"I Crush Everything" is available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow. Of course, this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.
Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store
