In Your Eyes ~ Peter Gabriel (1986)

Wow, I didn't realize this wasn't in yet. It probably ranks a tentative six on my list of favourite love songs ever.

"Extreme Ways" - Moby (2002)

"New Dawn Fades" - Joy Division (1979)

A change of speed, a change of style.

A change of scene, with no regrets,

A chance to watch, admire the distance,

Still occupied, though you forget.

Different colours, different shades,

Over each mistakes were made.

I took the blame.

Directionless so plain to see,

A loaded gun won't set you free.

So you say.

(Basically a chance to plug Unknown Pleasures to be nominated in the greatest albums of the 70's thread. To quote AMG regarding this and the other nine songs:

"...are stone-cold landmarks, the whole album a monument to passion, energy, and cathartic despair...All visceral, all emotional, all theatrical, all perfect — one of the best albums ever.)

Time for some Gypsy Punk :D

There was never any good old days

They are today, they are tomorrow

It's a stupid thing we say

Cursing tomorrow with sorrow

*see Top Ten number - it's a sign, isn't it? ;)
