There're too many songs.

Who's got Limewire?


Find a bad called Chlorophyll for the song 90 Lies.

The lead singer is named Cat Hall. We worked together (for an insane company in an even worse job) some years ago. Cat's first band is Dissonance.

I think I'll have to go with Symphony #3, The Symphony of Sorrowful Songs by Henryk Gorecki.

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!

Hold Me, Kiss Me, Thrill Me - sung by Mel Carter. Hands down the best song ever.

Hey, I'm surprised, I haven't read things like Hotel California, Tears in Heaven or The Riddle (the original by Nik Kershaw, not the cover) here yet.
They're usually some of the first songs that show up. :)

Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd.

The Floyd are probably my favourite band ever and the solo at the end of Comfortably Numb is just beautiful and full of emotion. When they played it at Live 8 back in 2005 it made me cry.

It's my favorite track as well but there are so many good ones by Pink Floyd, also really like Dark Side of the Moon. :D Definitley my favourite group.

And the electric violin tracks by Simon House on the earlier Hawkwind albums when Mike Moorcock played with them.

Think I had better stop there before I start rambling on Zep springs to mind. aaaarrrgh Image

"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives he releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo, he hath great power and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water.

Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream."

Long live Rock Dinosaurs!
