I think it's important we don't confuse 'melancholic' with 'melodic', though. For instance, I would consider Green Day's Time Of Your Life melodic, not melancholic.

Anyway, here goes...

1. The Rain Song - Led Zeppelin
2. Hey You - Pink Floyd
3. Wasted Time - Eagles
4. Everybody Hurts - REM
5. Only When I Lose Myself - Depeche Mode
6. Low Man's Lyric - Metallica
7. One (live w/ strings) - U2
8. Street Spirit (fade out) - Radiohead
9. When You're Gone - The Cranberries
10. They Dance Alone - Sting
11. Love Hurts - Nazareth
12. The Final Cut - Pink Floyd *really the whole album*
13. She's Leaving Home - The Beatles
14. Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles
15. Into The Great Wide Open - Tom Petty
16. The End - The Doors
17. Jerry Was There - Kula Shaker
18. Run Baby Run - Sheryl Crow
19. Yesterday - The Beatles
20. Wake Up Dead Man - U2

Never heard Gram's version, I'd love to, but The Sundays version is amazing.
