A few additions of the top of my head:

Communication Breakdown - Led Zeppelin

Words (Between the lines of age)- Neil Young

F-Word - Jens Lekman

Awesome. I think I'll add Communication Breakdown. Muxtape only allows 12 songs on one "tape", but there might be enough material for a second language mix. I considered but eventually rejected the following songs, some for aesthetic reasons, some because they duplicated themes already on the list, and sometimes because, in spite of the title, the content wasn't right:

Policy of Truth- Depeche Mode
Atomic - Blondie
Liar, Liar - The Castaways
The Argument - Sea and Cake
Talking Loud and Saying Nothing - James Brown
Express Yourself - Charles Wright
Meaningless - Magnetic Fields
Wordy Rappinghood - Tom Tom Club

Dan G. suggested XTC's "There is No Language in Our Lungs".

Um, what about "More than Words"? And why hasn't anyone commented on my muxtape?
