* "The Gift" by The Velvet Underground is a dark variation. The lyrics are a short story written by Lou Reed and read by John Cale about young man named Waldo who decides to mail himself to his girlfriend Marcia who he met before they went to college in different states, not realising she has moved on. He arrives at Marcia's apartment, whereupon Marcia and her friend Sheila see the package is from Waldo and decide they might as well open it. [[spoiler: The crate is nailed shut; Marcia and Sheila's attempts to open it are futile until Marcia grabs a sheet metal cutter. Sheila stabs a big hole in the crate...and Waldo's head.]]
