3) songs with a person's name in the title
- Grateful Dead - Franklin's Tower
- The Beatles - Hey Jude
- The Allman Brothers - Melissa
- Arlo Guthrie - Alice's Restaurant Massacre
- Ben Folds - Annie Waits

4) female vocalists (in a band or solo)

5) songs about loss
- Ben Folds - Gone
- Explosions in the Sky - The Birth and Death of Day (instrumental)
- Gary Jules - Mad World
- Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
- Neil Young - Don't Let it Bring you Down
- Oasis - Don't Go Away
- Pearl Jam - Corduroy
- Pink Floyd - Wish You were Here
- Ryan Adams - Meadowlake Street

Went over on 5 because I didn't want to do any narrowing down....just killed 40 minutes I should have been sleeping going through my library

also some great choices fluffer. i am (or was anyway) a big fan of the cult, you're spot on with the she sells sanctuary intro. i didn't think of it for my list (which i've been holding since shortly after i posted the thread).

also love the TMC version of song to the siren (and the similar sounding i want to live)!


and to everyone else, feel free to post in sections if you feel it's a struggle to come up with all of it at once, or if you just don't care about a section.
