A few for starters:

Massive Attack - teardrop
Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
Moby - great escape

Your turn!


If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Posted:Und Wenn Ein Lied - Shne Mannheims

Although it's in german, it is still an *amazing* song. You should listen to it, and even though you might not understand it, you can still feel it! Very, very, very beautifully done...

And if someone wants the lyrics in english, I couldn't find a translation, but if someone is interested, I could translate it for them.

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Posted:theres a few of the old(ish) Irish songs such as "The Fields of Athenry" and "Black Velvet Band" and many more are all beautiful songs, along with "Lone Star State of Mind" by Nanci Griffith

i know it seems strange but there's one line "Three tears I've saved for you" in the AFI song "Ever and a Day" that always gives me goosebumps every time i hear it, mainly because of the way its sung and the lines before it. one example of the lyrics is the first part of my sig

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.
