I only have 1 song to ad:

The Living Dead- Suede.

That tune makes me tear every time I hear it. Fucking junkies.


Where's all the money gone?
I'm talking to you
All up the hole in your arm
Is the needle a much better screw?
But oh what will you do alone?
'Cos I have to go.

Where is this life of fun that you promised me?
Nothing here works but your works and I mean it
I have to leave
But oh what will you do alone?
'Cos I have to go.

If I was the wife of an acrobat would I look like the living dead boy?
You're on the wire and can't get back, let's talk about the living dead
Could have had a car, could have had it all,
Could have walked in the sky but we stare at the wall.

I know where the money's gone--
I know what you do
'Cos I've seen the hole in your arm and
The needle's a much better screw
But oh, what will you do alone?
'Cos I have to go.

Fuck I don't have that song. I only have their first 3 albums.

I was almost going to include the Beautiful Ones from Dog Man Star from but left it out for some reason.

Dear Lord I was just listening to that on the way home. One of the best songs ever. Hell, that whole 'Stay Together' EP is stellar.

Just about everything I listen to is melancholic....

I could put up a list of every song I listen to and throw 20 darts.
