    My favorite would be the Trapeze Swinger by Sam Bean of Iron & Wine. The song relates someone's life, love, and misery as a trapeze act, and then ends with the lyrics:

    "so please remember me, finally
    and all my uphill clawing
    my dear, but if i make the Pearly Gates
    i’ll do my best to make a drawing
    of God and Lucifer, a boy and girl
    an angel kissin’ on a sinner
    a monkey and a man, a marching band
    all around the frightened trapeze-swinger"
    (Trapeze Swinger, Iron & Wine)

  • Tim Buckley "Song to the siren"

  • Kings of Convenience - Little Kids^^

    music is the art of thinking with sounds

    Don't Have to be so Sad - Yo La Tengo

    Some great songs. This song devastates me, it's so beautiful, it makes me want to cry.

    It's a direct download from their website.

    Last FM album page:
    Summer Sun

  • The whole Damien Rice album "O" is so heartbreakingly sad I just love it :D

    And I agree with _sweetaya with Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You" and "Into Dust"

    Oh and "Touched" by VAST is one of my favourites too.
