[quote=ShapeSphere;1359956]Joe's Garage - Frank Zappa

"Joe's Garage" is brilliant. I have it on a mix tape segueing into "Dad I'm in Jail" by Was Not Was.
Then there's Nico's version of Jackson Browne's "These Days."
My favorite Laura Nyro song is "Been on a Train."
My favorite Leonard Cohen song is "Famous Blue Raincoat."

Guess you can tell I like depressing songs.
