I agree with a lot of these songs mentioned.

Hmm...let's see here...listing a couple from some of my favorite bands:

"Message To My Girl", "One Step Ahead"-Split Enz
"A Sort Of Homecoming", "Tomorrow", "Angel Of Harlem"-U2
"Luna", "Mary Jane's Last Dance", "Magnolia"-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
"Into Temptation", "Don't Dream It's Over"-Crowded House
"Tempted", "Goodbye, Girl"-Squeeze
"Rain In The Summertime", "The Stand"-The Alarm

And some from some other artists:
"Crush"-Dave Matthews Band
"Everybody Wants To Rule The World"-Tears For Fears
"Golden Brown"-The Stranglers
"Alison"-Elvis Costello
"Penny Lane", "Eight Days A Week"-The Beatles (two of my all-time favorite songs of theirs)
"Ruby Tuesday"-Rolling Stones
"Love Street"-The Doors

That's all I can think of for now.

R.E.M.'s Country Feedback is THE most amazing song I've ever heard in my life. It's just indescribably good. I would say "perfect". I was so disappointed when they did not play it live when I saw them in October.

U2 - One
U2 - Where the Streets Have No Name
U2 - The Fly
U2's cover of Unchained Melody
Lamb - Gorecki
Radiohead - Paranoid Android
Radiohead - Subterranean Homesick Alien
Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
Massive Attack - Teardrop

UK Squeeze!I had forgotten about them. I really need to get CD copies of all my old vinyl. I miss them.

A perfect song, not necessarily the lyrics:

"Just Cant Get Enough" - Depeche Mode
"Blue Monday" - Joy Division
"Talking to a Stranger " - Hunters and Collectors
"Icehouse" - Icehouse
"Fade to Grey" - Visage
"Almost With You" - The Church
"Unguarded Moment" - The Church
"Weather with You" - Crowded House
"To Look At You" - INXS
"So Many Men" - Youssou N'Dour

Actually, I dont often pay attention to lyrics, I have come to realise. Its all about the rhythm and melody, rhythm and melody.

I'm really getting into their music right now-I've been playing their greatest hits CD constantly since I got it, and I love it, and I want to look for the rest of their stuff. They really do have some excellent songs (seriously, if I were to ever make a list of my top 100 songs of all time, "Tempted" would definitely be in there. And "Goodbye, Girl" is just such a fun little singalong song).

Heh, they get a few extra bonus points from me, 'cause the other night, I was looking up the lyrics to their song "853-5937", and I found out that my name is mentioned in that song . Mega cool.

Ooh, forgot about that one.

I also want to add the Cranberries' "Zombie"-such an emotional song. And Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush's "Don't Give Up" (ooh, speaking of Peter, how in the world did I forget "In Your Eyes"?).

That is one of my all time fav songs

I'll also add:

U2 - Bad
U2 - Promenade
Radiohead - Street Sprit
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Let the Bells Ring
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Carry Me
Pink Floyd - Brain Damage/Eclipse
Pink Floyd - Time
Pink Floyd - Hey You
Bob Dylan - Subterranean Homesick Blues
The Pogues - Lullaby of London
The Pogues - Dark Streets of London

There are loads more, but can't think of them right now. My choices aren't necessarily musically or lyrically perfect (apart from Bad & Promenade ), but for me, the combination of music & lyrics "work"

That is a good one, havent listened to that in a long time!

Mine are probebly more obvious than that one though. U2, there are too many of those and everyone has their own favorite there. As far as other artists:

-REM: Everybody Hurts (its the perfect sound and tone for the subject matter)
-Bruce Springsteen: Into The Fire (again, the subject matter makes it very moving for me).
-The Police: Every Breath You Take (the true meaning of the lyrics makes it rather disturbing but a perfect song musically)
-Coldplay: Clocks (honorable mention Shiver)
-Pearl Jam: Learning To Fly (especially live)
-INXS: Not Enough Time (Its the bass hook!! )
-The Cure: Pictures Of You
-Simple Minds: Ghostdancing

Peter Gabriel "In Your Eyes".

Tempted is brilliant. I really wish all the old vinyls were available. I just looked and the only UK Squeeze CD available at the moment is a best of.

"Salisbury Hill" - Peter Gabriel
"Sleepwalk" - Ultravox
"To Cut A Long Story Short" - Spandau Ballet
"Hold Back the Rain" - Duran Duran

Hey beli, these two songs have been reworked in an all acoustic format (for the Liberation Blue series) and released on a new CD (titled "El Momento Descuidado"). SK's voice is gorgeous on this...really lovely all around.
