    Since this discussion is still going I'll just post another song because why not :whistling:



    This is one I enjoy a lot from a band called Bent Knee. Check them out. They've got some awesome music. They're a bunch of fantastic musicians.


    Loving all these suggestions, though. Keep 'em coming!

    Ah, Country Music: the music of pain.

    This one gets me every time.



    Props to the Possum for He Stopped Loving Her Today, also.

    -I miss you a little.
    It's about his Dad dying, and the memories.

    Here are a couple from completely different genres:

    1. Sissy's Song - Alan Jackson
    2. Does Everyone Stare - The Police

    The Alan Jackson song is mourning a death, asking why a woman had to die, struggling with it. Very sad.

    The second one by The Police is basically a guy apologizing to a girl for being in love with her, like he's sorry for wasting her time and is maybe just embarrassing or annoying her and has no chance of being good enough for her. The verse I'm thinking about goes like this:

    I want to write you a sonnet, but I don't know where to start. I'm so used to laughing at the things in my heart.
    Last of all I'm sorry, 'cause you never asked for this. I can see I'm not your type and my shots will always miss.

    "Does Everyone Stare" is a great song. All of Stewart Copeland's other songs are funny: especially "On Any Other Day". That one is hilarious! "Cut off my fingers in the door of my car. How could I do it!?"
