  1. Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt. He was getting pretty feeble at the time, and you can hear it in his voice. The amount of relatable emotion that you can hear in “What have I become? My sweetest friend. Everyone I know goes away
    In the end” is palpable. It’s the audio construction of a person’s regrets. Something special

  2. For anyone who has lost a loved one, and specifically was there until the very end, I don’t think “What Sarah Said” by Death Cab for Cutie can be beaten in terms of sadness. I can’t listen to it without balling, and if it happens to play in an unexpected setting, I’ll have to excuse myself and go somewhere else for a while. It’s IMO the peak of their ability to create something incredibly beautiful yet incredibly sorrowful and poignant.
