    Cloud of Unknowing by the Gorillaz.

    Natalie merchant …carnival …..lovely track has a lot in it

    Billy Bragg – Tank Park Salute:

    Kiss me goodnight and say my prayers
    Leave the light on at the top of the stairs
    Tell me the names of the stars up in the sky
    A tree taps on the window pane
    That feeling smothers me again
    Daddy is it true that we all have to die

    At the top of the stairs
    Is darkness

    I closed my eyes and when I looked
    Your name was in the memorial book
    and what had become of all the things we planned
    I accepted the commiserations
    Of all your friends and your relations
    But there’s some things I still don’t understand

    You were so tall
    How could you fall?

    Some photographs of a summer’s day
    A little boy’s lifetime away
    Is all I’ve left of everything we’ve done
    Like a pale moon in a sunny sky
    Death gazes down as I pass by
    To remind me that I’m but my father’s son

    I offer up to you
    This tribute
    I offer up to you
    This tank park salute

    Thankfully I still have my father, but I think this is a constant reminder that, that won`t always be the case


    mozz , i know its over , saw him in leeds in the summer , what a night , did quite a few classics , a night i wont forget.


    +1 O Mio Babbino Caro.
    Reminds me of my Grandad.


    The drugs don’t work by The Verve

    Heartbeat by Nick Berry – was the theme tune to my Mum’s favourite program

    Premier Icon Sandwich





    so, so sad.


    was at this concert had a tear in my eye he gave a masterful performance


    Premier Icon leffeboy


    Not a huge Elton fan but like others it more of a time machine back to a particular place in their lives. For me it takes me back to a point where I was in a place well out of my depth but having the absolute time of my life. I was completely exhausted and being driven home while my translator was trying to make sense of this song that was playing in the car. It’s like way the smell of something can bring back memories. Brilliant

    Usually manage more than one tear to this one.


    Also this one but I think you have to be Scottish and homesick


    Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd


    Drive by The Cars.. can’t help but think of Live Aid and the pictures as reported by Michael Burke

    Not a song as such, but this always has me teary


    and this, cos it was one of the song’s at my dad’s funeral



    The best band in the world.

    ABBA – Super Trouper.

    No more Super Trouper as they are now gone … history.



    REM – Everybody Hurts (especially poignant as it is associated with when my boyfriend at the time committed suicide)

    Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares to You (seemed to get played a lot when I seperated from my partner …)

    And +1 to Johnny Cash’s Hurt

    **Hugs Sue **
    Incase new B/f is not around ce soir

    Justin Hayward. Forever Autumn.
    Played at my wife’s funeral. Still cant bring myself to hear it in full.
    Its got me going now just thinking about it.


    *sobs uncontrollably*

    Lippy Kids and Open Arms, both off the last Elbow album.

    Premier Icon Master Of None

    +1 for Johnny Cash’s Hurt and Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

    And i’ll add “Show Must Go On” – Queen and “My Hero” – Foo Fighters, especially a live acoustic version i saw at V festival a couple of years ago (Foos performing as The 606).

    oh and The Night Will Always Win off that as well.

    No Surprises by Radiohead always gets me looking at the knife block.


    cats in the cradle by who ever sings it …

    its me and my dad in a nut shell even though we try to avoid it something always comes up at both ends !



    Premier Icon stewartc

    Desperado obviously….


    Damian Rice – Cold Water

    A beautiful song that just makes me well up.


    on headphones . . .
