Name 5 wistful/bittersweet songs:
IWhat? Like Bittersweet Symphony? I don't really know too many that get me down. Clapton's Tears in Heaven messes me up, and I can't listen to it. The Red Army Blues by The Waterboys is pretty much a downer.

One of Your Favorite Lyrics:
The Torture Never Stops - Frank Zappa

Slime 'n rot, rats 'n snot 'n vomit on the floor
Fifty ugly soldiers, man, holdin' spears by the iron door
Knives 'n spikes 'n guns 'n the likes of every tool of pain
An' a sinister midget with a bucket an' a mop where the blood goes down the drain;

Nice to see this list is making the rounds. You got some good ones on there.

Wow. I stand in awe. I thought I loved you before. ;-) Van Morrison, Dave Brubeck, Alanis. Dude.

Nobody, I mean NOBODY knows Happy Boy. And I can totally see you jumping into the ring to that one. You'd have the other guy in the fetal position in the corner.

But, um. I gotta scratch my head at the Deep Forest. Cleaning to Pygmies?

Shit I wanted to put the waterboys, the pan within, in mine.
Love the stranglers peaches and nice and sleazy. Btw on hindsight I realised although cool music questionnaire it is, this is a horrible meme to give people as its just a tad enduring which leads to an overwhelming sense of aggravation and can only offer my sincerest apologies thus. You'll be happy to know Ive given up on meme-ing as a result..

There’s no freaking way I could ever do that meme. I couldn’t even get past the first five without spacing out on all the options.
