Just a few as I wander through my library.

But those are for another topic.

I'll come back and add more in later, but i just had to put this one up.
Kom susser todd.
I don't know who it's by, but you have to hear it. We have decided it is officially one of the most depressing songs known to mankind. The strange thing is that the music isn't really all that depressing sounding. Its kinda poppy, almost slightly upbeat. But, if you pay attention to the lyrics, its one of those songs that you wind up listening to over and over again. After about an hour you are left with this feeling...like you just wan tot die, but that wouldn't fix anythign either. LIke everythign is completely pointless. You have to hear it.
Amazing Grace is but another that comes to mind.
