I'm gonna post two...

Eric Bogle - No Man's Land (Green Fields of France)

Terry Jacks - Seasons In The Sun

With some songs used in movies and TV it's hard to separate the impact of the song itself from what's happening on-screen, especially in memory (Circle of Life from The Lion King had me in tears during the opening minutes of the film) but I think this one stands well enough on its own.



He'll flip ya...Flip ya for real...
I think this one captures the hurt, confusion, and frustration of being a teenager while managing to be euphoric at the same time. It's a helluva piece of songwriting:

I've been touched by a number of Loreena McKennit, especially the ones she bases on Yeat's poems. This one hammered me particularly hard after I'd lost my dog of 12 years a couple years ago, and it still evokes a melancholy but not unpleasant response:

Another interesting pairing is McKennit's version of the Highwayman:

And Phil Och's version of the same poem:

I always liked the poem and both their musical interpretations of it
