My all-time favorite song is Roy Orbinson's "Pretty Woman", just 'cause it's one of the very first songs I remember being played around the house when I was little, and it's such a simple, sweet, classic song. I've just always loved it.

Some other mentions, however, include:

"Layla"-Derek & the Dominoes
"Brown-Eyed Girl"-Van Morrison
"My Girl"-Temptations
"Imagine"-John Lennon
"Penny Lane"-Beatles
"Ruby Tuesday"-Rolling Stones
"Nights In White Satin"-Moody Blues
"In Your Eyes"-Peter Gabriel
"Stand By Me"-Ben E. King
"Unchained Melody"-Righteous Brothers

I'm thinking I was born in the wrong time period ...

I just got them on itunes as I can't die incomplete!

He sounds so Lennonish in "Death of a Train" to me - awesome! Thanks! I like both songs.

New Model army - Ballad.

(Sullivan) 1986

When they look back at us and they write down their history
What will they say about our generation?
We're the ones who knew everything and still we did nothing
Harvested everything, planted nothing.
Well we live pretty well in the wake of the goldrush
Floating in comfort on waves of our apathy
Quietly gnawing away at Her body
Until we mortgage the future, bury our children
Storehouses full with the fruits we've been given
We send off the scrag-ends to suckle the starving
But still we can't feed this strange hunger inside
Greedy, restless and unsatisfied.

I was never much one for the great "Big Bang" theory
Going out in a blaze of suicidal glory
Not foolish and brave, these leaders of ours
Just stupid and petty, unworthy of power;
Just a little leak here and a small error there
Another square mile poisoned forever
A series of sad and pathetic little fizzles
And out go the lights, never to return.
The affair it is over, the passion is dead
She stares at us now with ice in Her eyes
But we turn away from these bitter reproaches
And take up distractions to forget what we're doing

I stand on these hills and I watch Her at night
A thousands square miles, a million orange lights
Wounded and scarred, She lies silent in pain
Raped and betrayed in the cold acid rain
And I wish and I wish
We could start over again
Yes I wish and I wish
We could win back Her love once again
