I can't believe no one has said, nothing else matters by Metallica.
Or maybe they did, but I don't wanna scroll through 13 pages.

this is a bloody long thread so i've only read the last couple of pages but i noticed there is no elliot smith or nick drake!! two of the most haunting singer/songwriters of the last 40 years. If you haven't heard of either i suggest you go on youtube now. Just depressing as it is beautiful... probably because i know i will never be that talented.
Practically anything by these guys should be at the top of your list

If you speak French: Jacques Brel songs like Les Vieux, Jef, Ne me quite pas, Au suivant, chez ces gens-lŕ and most anything else he wrote.

Death! Where the hell have you been? I thought we would meet at the Marty Friedman concert and you weren't there. I wondered if you're dead because I didn't get a message? Well, I'd be curious to know what happened
anyway, the concert was awesome, got to shake his hand, chat a bit and got my t-shirt signed.

You get your wife back, your dog back, your house back, your car back..
