    a song you wish you wrote

    The first song I felt this way about was Crazy as sung by Patsy Cline (I was very little, and hadn't yet learned that my voice wasn't good enough).

    The next was Something - while John and Paul seemed to be able to knock out songs, George's always seemed to come from his soul. I think everybody past puberty wished they could have said this as well as he did.

    More recently, Memories of Us by Keith Urban - I would have loved to have been creative enough to sing this to my wife on our wedding day.

    I wish I'd written any song on Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd.

    Because the album sold over 50 million copies, and as a bonus, I'd enjoy playing any of the tunes.

    50 Million copies amounts to an awful lot of mechanical royalties...and throw in the performance royalties, and it'd be a nice, tidy sum.

    P.S. Yeah, it's about the money (since I can't imagine a very good reason I'd want to lay claim to someone else's creative product).

    My Heart Will Go On by Silly Dijon. Not only is it a great tune but I could probably afford a personal water park like she has at/in her home.

    The first two that come to mind are

    Nine Inch Nails - Hurt
    The Downward Spiral influenced me greatly. Still one of my favorite albums of all time. The sounds, the lyrics, the visuals all floor me.

    Coldplay - The Scientist
    Not a big fan of these guys but this song is so crushingly heaving to me lyrically.

    Sergei Rachmaninov's Prelude in C sharp minor, Op. 3, no. 2

    That song kicks asses and buries their owners alive. Yeah.

    Love for all human beings is like listening to any kind of music. You just don't care.
