Happy Birthday To You. Whenever it's sung to me, presents soon follow :D

"The drugs don't work" by the Verve. I love the lyrics.

The singer is so depressed coz his girlfriend left him that he wants to kill himself. So he takes drugs to ease the pain. But when he takes drugs, he hallucinates and sees his ex-girlfriend and feels even worse. Then he comes down from the high and wants to kill himself again because he feels so bad. So he takes drugs and feels even worse again, but he can see his girlfriend etc etc etc.

"Like a cat in a bag waiting to drown each time I'm coming down.
Now the drugs don't work, they just make you worse, but I know I'll see your face again.
When heaven calls (suicide) I'm coming to.
Just like you said, if you leave my life I'm better off dead."

In the end he decides to stay high for the rest of his life, which he'll hate, but at least he'll be with his ex-girlfriend in his dream

"Never coming down now, never coming down no more, no more no more"

Or Puff the Magic Dragon coz it always makes me sad! :cry:

It always irritates me when the cut the ending off. I generally join in (on the full length version) right up to the end of 'please turn me o-ver'.
I saw ELO in concert at Wembley, courtesy of a newspaper competition when I won 2 tickets, and I really enjoyed the concert.

I quite like sad songs though. I won't mention which ones as there are too many to list, and you'll think that I'm a manic depressive, or something!
If push comes to shove though, I've always thought that one of the best songs ever made is 'I'm Not In Love' by 10cc.

That's not a sad song. It's about someone who claims he isn't in love, but really is!

Sorry. pooh. I didn't make myself clear. APART from the sad songs, one of the best songs ever made ... :oops:

Sweet dreams: Now, there's a song that really gets stuck in your brain. I couldn't get rid of it for days the last time I heard it.

Too difficult, way too difficult.

Up there somewhere:

Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
Thieves Like Us - New Order
Several SFA tracks (incl. Demons, Slow Life and Hermann Loves Pauline)
Several Elbow tracks (incl. Powder Blue and Tower Crane Driver)
Fight the Power - Public Enemy
Chime - Orbital
So What - Miles Davis

I'd better stop now.

Fur Elise by Beethoven and many written by Bach. Sweet Dreams because of Annie Lennox, Closer to the Heart and Most of the Rush songs, because Geddy can Write. And Little Wing by Jimi.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Well, I was going to be polite and calm, considering the post about everyone being nice to each other, but as I'm easily led and I suspect pooh of enjoying a little punishment, then, pooh - This is for you ...

After a bout in the ring, you could always sing the Thompson Twins 'Doctor. Doctor' ... Image (The fact that I mentioned a song should keep this topic on track!)
