Even though it's a sad song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is one of the best examples of a narrative song ever written. It is one of my favorite songs ever. If someone played it at a party I went to, I'd stay and say "Play more Gordon Lightfoot!!". But I also think that the greatest era of Pop/Rock music is the 1970s.

You just reminded me of Jim Croce's Taxi ("A smile seemed to come to her slowly. It was a sad smile, just the same.")

Here's another oldie but goodie classic depressing song:

"Diary" by Bread

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnRc1saiTUU


I found her diary underneath a tree.
And started reading about me
The words she's written took me by surprise
You'd never read them in her eyes.
They said that she had found the love she waited for.
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

When she confronted with the writing there,
Simply pretended not to care.
I passed it off as just in keeping with
Her total disconcerting air
And though she tried to hide
The love that she denied,
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

And as I go through my life, I will give to her my wife
All the sweet things that I can find.

I found her diary underneath a tree.
And started reading about me.
The words began stick and tears to flow.
Her meaning now was clear to see.
The love she'd waited for was someone else not me
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

And as I go through my life, I will wish for her his wife
All the sweet things that she can find
All the sweet things they can find

ooh and you just reminded me of another one...
same old lang sine by dan fogelberg...
met my old lover in the grocery store..
we drank a toast to innocence...
just for a moment I was back at school..and felt that old familiar pain...
gets me crying every time.

Joey by Concrete Blonde


I am not very familiar with the band or anything, but I remember hearing that and was like WOW that song is amazing.

That is a great song. I think you mean Harry Chapin, though?

That's Harry Chapin and not Jim Croce.

Pretty much anything by Adele, hear her songs a few times a day at work on the Muzak system

How about "Ya Picked A Fine Time To Leave Me, Lucille" by Willie Nelson. "Four hungry kids and a crop in the field..."
