    ^Seriously, it's the one song where I cannot keep it together when I hear it.

    definitely. I feel the same way.

    Supposedly, Cat refused Telecom (and every other company that wanted the song) when they asked to use it but changed his mind after seeing the video.

    This song has a lot of truth as well:

    Mad World
    Gary Jules (cover of Tears for Fears)

    All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places, worn out faces
    Bright and early for their daily races
    Going nowhere, going nowhere
    Their tears are filling up their glasses
    No expression, no expression
    Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow, no tomorrow
    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I'm dying
    Are the best I've ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very
    Mad World
    Mad world
    Children waiting for the day they feel good
    Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
    And I feel the way that every child should
    Sit and listen, sit and listen
    Went to school and I was very nervous
    No one knew me, no one knew me
    Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
    Look right through me, look right through me
    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I'm dying
    Are the best I've ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very
    Mad World
    Mad World
    Enlarging your world
    Mad World.

    I saw Gary Jules do a sound check of that song when he played here (I didn't stick around for his set). It was just random. I was at the venue and he happened to be there, on stage. Good song, both versions.

    One of the prettiest songs, IMO (stunning, really...):

    YouTube - Sting - Fields Of Gold

    You'll remember me when the west wind moves
    Upon the fields of barley
    You'll forget the sun in its jealous sky
    As we walk in fields of gold

    So she took her love
    For to gaze awhile
    Upon the fields of barley
    In his arms she fell as her hair came down
    Among the fields of gold

    Will you stay with me, will you be my love
    Among the fields of barley
    We'll forget the sun in its jealous sky
    As we lie in fields of gold

    See the west wind move
    Like a lover's soul
    Upon the fields of barley
    Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
    Among the fields of gold

    I never made promises lightly
    And there have been some that I've broken
    But I swear in the days still left
    We'll walk in fields of gold
    We'll walk in fields of gold

    Many years have passed since those summer days
    Among the fields of barley
    See the children run as the sun goes down
    Among the fields of gold

    You'll remember me when the west wind moves
    Upon the fields of barley
    You can tell the sun in its jealous sky
    When we walked in fields of gold
    When we walked in fields of gold
    When we walked in fields of gold

    Default Regina Spektor.

    oh gosh. we haven't mentioned Regina.

    watchwatchwatchwatchwatchwatchwatchwatchwatchwatch :

    YouTube - Regina Spektor US

    This song/music video should have its own thread because of: the stop motion animation, the oversized piano keys, her voice, the lyrics, the runaway table, her lips, the way she packs up the room, her facial expressions. wow.

    Regina Spektor: Us

    They made a statue of us
    and put it on a mountaintop
    Now tourists come and stare at us
    Blow bubbles with their gum, take photographs of fun
    have fun

    they'll name a city after us
    and later say it's all our fault
    then they'll give us a talking to
    then they'll give us a talking to
    cause they've got years of experience

    we're living in a den of thieves
    rummaging for answers in the pages
    we're living in a den of thieves
    and it's contagious

    we wear our scarves just like a noose
    but not cause we want eternal sleep
    and though our parts are slightly used
    new ones are slave labor you can keep

    we're living in a den of thieves
    rummaging for answers in the pages
    we're living in a den of thieves
    and it's contagious

    They made a statue of us
    They made a statue of us
    The tourists come and stare and us
    The sculptor's momma sends regards
    They made a statue of us
    They made a statue of us
    Our noses have begun to rust

    we're living in a den of thieves
    rummaging for answers in the pages
    we're living in a den of thieves
    and it's contagious

    stronger - 30 seconds to mars cover version

    Let's get lost tonight,
    You can be my black Kate Moss tonight.
    Play secretary, I'm the boss tonight,
    And you don't give a fuck what they all say right
    Awesome, the Christian in Christian Dior,
    Damn, they don't make 'em like this anymore,
    I ask 'cause I'm not sure,
    Do anybody make real shit anymore?
    Bow in the presence of greatness
    'Cause right now thou hast forsaken us.
    You should be honoured by my lateness,
    That I would even show up to this fake shit.
    So go ahead, go nuts, go ape shit...

    I don't know if you got a man or not,
    If you made plans or not,
    If God put me in your plans or not,
    I'm trippin', this drink got me sayin' a lot.
    But I know that God put you in front of me,
    So how the hell could you front on me?
    There's a thousand yous, there's only one of me.
    I'm trippin', I'm caught up in the moment, right
    'Cause it's Louis Vuitton Don night,
    So we gon' do everything that Kan like,
    Heard they do anything for a Klondike,
    Well, I'd do anything for a blonde dyke.
    And she'll do anything for the limelight,
    And we'll do anything when the time's right,
    Uh, baby, you're makin' it
    Harder, better, faster, stronger,

    Now that don't kill me,
    Can only make me stronger, oh!
    I need you to hurry up now, oh!
    'Cause I can't wait much longer, oh!
    I know I got to be right now, oh!
    'Cause I can't get much wronger, oh!
    Man, I been waitin' all night now,
    That's how long I've been on ya.

    I need you right now,
    I need you right now.

    It's not time to make a change,
    Just relax, take it easy.
    You're still young, that's your fault,
    There's so much you have to know.
    Find a girl, settle down,
    If you want you can marry.
    Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

    I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
    To be calm when you've found something going on.
    But take your time, think a lot,
    Why, think of everything you've got.
    For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

    (Son)
    How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
    It's always been the same, same old story.
    From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
    Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
    I know I have to go.

    (Father)
    It's not time to make a change,
    Just sit down, take it slowly.
    You're still young, that's your fault,
    There's so much you have to go through.
    Find a girl, settle down,
    If you want you can marry.
    Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.
    (son-- away away away, I know I have to
    Make this decision alone - no)

    (Son)
    All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
    It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
    If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them you know not me.
    Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
    I know I have to go.
    (father-- stay stay stay, why must you go and
    Make this decision alone? )
    I love this song. It's always affected me a little. I didn't even know that it was both the son AND the father talking, though; I always thought it was just the dad! And I can totally relate to the son more, too. I love how he sings this song.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    That's funny, I mentioned at another site that I wanted him to do "You Know What You Are" by NIN.

    I almost wrote that a lot of people do not realize it's the father and son! So much more affecting knowing that. I was listening to it loads last night, then I called my Dad.
