I heard "everybody hurts" by REM and "wake me up when september ends" by greenday. they have to be 2 of the best songs ever
(please note I am not mentioning any Metal songs so as to not be a bore)

I heard Cutting Crew "I just died in your arms tonight" on the radio this morning and cranked it up loud on the way to Tesco. Maybe it's a bit naff but it was just GREAT.

Favourite song though is Snow Patrol's "Run".

mosschops30 · 02/04/2008 17:18

can i also add to that coldplay 'fix you' and 'the scientist'

I feel the same, love this song! My friend had the 12" and I was !!

But I did have Cutting Crew "I just died in your arms tonight" on 7" though

Mr Brightside by the Killers. Sublime.

Glammama · 02/04/2008 17:25

Do You Realize? by Flaming Lips. Could listen to that over and over again and indeed I do .

Another vote for Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera) - Walk out to Winter.

ANd The Kinks - Days. God, I love that song.

Egg · 02/04/2008 18:02

Oh seeing the Kinks reminds me, Waterloo Sunset always makes me smile and turn up the volume too.

Bluebutterfly · 02/04/2008 18:10

Agree with OP but am a major fan of most REM songs - "nightswimming" and "losing my religion" still give me goosebumps...

InTheseShoes · 02/04/2008 18:17

Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack

Mr Brightside - Killers - one of the saddest "fast" songs ever

In These Shoes? - Kirsty McColl

PerkinWarbeck · 02/04/2008 18:20

definitely agree with waterloo sunset and party fears two

also move on up by curtis mayfield
and the kids are alright by the who

LBA · 02/04/2008 18:21
