    "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen. I never really listened hard to the lyrics until last night, and I realized that it's really a pretty downbeat song, despite the upbeat music.

    Have you guys ever heard a song and then gone back much later and realized that it was really a different song than you thought it was?

    Yes. The songs on Cocteau Twins' Heaven or Las Vegas all sound beautiful when you don't have a clue what Liz is saying. I looked up the lyrics to one of them online once (I forget which song), and was shocked to learn they were bitterly caustic. Despite that, it's still one of my favorite albums. I just listen to the music and don't worry about the words now.

    Angie by the Rolling Stones. It's a love song...but a sad one.

    Seasons in the Sun and Patches.

    Those are two incredibly sad and sappy songs.

    Pretty much any song by new pop acts (ie Justin Timberlake, Good Charolette) gawd that shit sucks. Depresses me so much I want to stick rusty forks in my ears.
