    And the Nada Surf cover is definitely better than the original version by The Cure

    You prefer If You Leave to Inside Of Love? You crazy person!

    As for the OC: yes it's a decent, entertaining series but not exactly the cleverest... and the music director might as well be a 14 year old. In Dawson's Creek, there was also a great score. Well anyway it was great until about the 3rd/4th series. Then it became just a publicity tool, just like the OC is.

    Nothing beats the original though (although I wouldn't call it "beautiful" or moving). Their acoustic version is alright.

    REM - Losing my religion!

    AMAZING!

    If you haven't heard it, hear it!

    If you can't afford it, steal it!

    But if you find it orgasmic... i'm sorry you can't sleep with it!

    Seriously give it a listen... if you have any stress with A-levels... this song will make you forget them! IT'S FANTASTIC, don't you think?

    He Stopped Loving Her Today (George Jones). It sends shivers down my spine. I don't think it's that popular so here are the lyrics:

    He said "I'll love you till I die",
    She told him "You'll forget in time"
    As the years went slowly by,
    She still preyed upon his mind

    He kept her picture on his wall,
    Went half-crazy now and then
    He still loved her through it all,
    Hoping she'd come back again

    Kept some letters by his bed
    Dated nineteen sixty-two
    He had underlined in red
    Every single "I love you"

    I went to see him just today,
    Oh but I didn't see no tears
    All dressed up to go away,
    First time I'd seen him smile in years

    He stopped loving her today
    They placed a wreath upon his door
    And soon they'll carry him away
    He stopped loving her today

    You know, she came to see him one last time.
    Oh, we all wondered if she would.
    And it kept running' through my mind-
    "This time he's over her for good."

    Tunnels - Arcade Fire. Only heard it recently, but it's one of the saddest, most touching songs I've heard. It actually makes me feel like crying every time I hear it, but I still enjoy it. I'll think of some more soon.

    To be honest, the best one ive heard in a long time is

    The Magic Numbers - This Love

    Its fantastic! Really soft but with this undertone of some kind of tension, its all very intimate, with Male/Female dual vocals, and the solo violin complimenting it perfectly! And the bridge is amazing! Any comments? Plus im going to see them live soon

    My beautiful = very sad songs are. 1. Abide with me (if it counts as a song rather than a hmyn). 2. Barcelona. There's loads that make me cry but those two send shivers down my spine.

    Emily by Stephen Fretwell:

    You never were going to change your mind, were you, Emily?
    You just sat back, took it all for you, there was nothing for me;
    I didn't mean to prove that all I can do is lose

    Next time that you need me, don't call me up, Emily;
    I'm tired of your lies and your cheating ways with me;
    And every time you go, please don't let me know

    Emily, you still live inside of me;
    And, Emily, you are the fire in my tree;
    So if you should fall, please don't call;
    And next time you write, I won't stay up all night;
    'Cos Emily you, just look at you - you're a tragedy

    You never were going to change you mind, were you, Emily?
    You just sat back, took it all for you, and nothing was there for me;
    I didn't mean to prove that all I'm good for is to lose

    Emily, you still live inside of me;
    And, Emily, you are the fire in my tree;
    So next time you fall, please don't call;
    And next time you write, I won't stay up all night;
    'Cos Emily you, just look at you - you're a tragedy

    You never were going to change you're mind were you, anyway.


    and Name by the Goo Goo Dolls

    And even though the moment passed me by
    I still can't turn away
    'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
    Got tossed along the way
    And letters that you never meant to send
    Get lost or thrown away

    And now we're grown up orphans
    That never knew their names
    We don't belong to no one
    That's a shame

    But if you could hide beside me
    Maybe for a while
    And I won't tell no one your name
    And I won't tell 'em your name

    Scars are souvenirs you never lose
    The past is never far
    Did you lose yourself somewhere out there
    Did you get to be a star
    And don't it make you sad to know that life
    Is more than who we are

    You grew up way too fast
    And now there's nothing to believe
    And reruns all become our history
    A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
    And I won't tell no one your name
    And I won't tell 'em your name
    I won't tell 'em your name

    I think about you all the time
    But I don't need the same
    It's lonely where you are come back down
    And I won't tell 'em your name
