Sad Songs

Via Hegmo via the Guardian, 25 tunes to slash your wrist by. I don't mind the "Honey" and "Tell Laura I Love Her" bashing but I could come up with a better list than this ("Comfortably Numb" isn't even in Pink Floyd's "25 saddest song list"). Where's Twisted Sister's remake of "Leader of the Pack"? Where's "Indiana Wants Me"? Where's "Maggie on the Guillotine"? Where's "Timothy" (they fucking ate him, that's where!)? And for God's sake, where's "Teen Angel" (she ran back to the stalled car on the railroad tracks to get her purse with the train 15 feet away--death caused no decrease in I.Q.)?

I'm with Reynolds in his appreciation of Johnny Cash's "Hurt" but where's the focus?
