My (Very Dark) iTunes Top Ten

Some folks have been posting their most played songs, so I thought I'd play along. I've got nothing to hide.

  1. "My Life Is a Succession of People Saying Goodbye" - Morrissey
  2. "Goodbye Horses" - Q Lazzarus
  3. "Atmosphere" - Joy Division
  4. "Fashionably Uninvited" - Mellowdrone
  5. "Nessun Dorma" - from Puccini's Turandot
  6. "Cold" - The Cure
  7. "Maps" - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  8. "Leave Me Alone" - New Order
  9. "Mother of Pearl" - Roxy Music
  10. "Seemann" - Rammstein

I wonder how many others can claim to have "Goodbye Horses" anywhere near the tops of their lists. If you can detach it from the Silence of the Lambs scene it made famous, it's a brilliantly haunting song of loss, longing, and transcendence.
