There's Not Enough Room in this World for my Pain...

"Ghost" by the Indigo Girls
I admit it. I'm waxing a bit melancholic. This song has always referred to only one person for me, even though it's a somewhat universal lament for young love lost. It's also one of those songs you can play on the freeway with your windows rolled up...belting at the top of your lungs.

I've got a few songs that go along with this one. We've all got our "OH THE DRAMA" lists. Some of us have it in a playlist called "Oh the Drama". It's one of those small lists for me so far. It contains:
    "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" by Poison
    "Song Remembers When" by Trisha Yearwood
    "You Must Love Me" by Madonna
    "Desperado" by the Eagles (Yeah, I don't like the Linda Ronstadt version)
    "Two Outta Three Ain't Bad" by Meat Loaf (Like Meat Loaf would be missing from ANY list?)
    "Separate Lives" by Phil Collins
    "Same Auld Lang Syne" by Dan Fogelberg
    "Hold on to the Nights" by Richard Marx
    "What Might Have Been" by Little Texas
There are more, but I seem to be seem to have upwards of 12,000 mp3s, so it takes a while to find stuff AND remember to put it in the appropriate list.

Perhaps tomorrow, I'll pull out something poppy and summery.
