Mike Cooley at the end of DBT's "Sounds Better in the Song":
"Lord, she’s give me everything and never wanted anything I couldn’t give
Just what was inside of me
And now she’s found herself, and I lost mine
And I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything"

Specially if you identify.

Could go in the sad songs thread as well.

Another good one is Neko Case's "Hold On, Hold On", at the "It's the Devil I love" part where those harmonies switch from that creepy minor to major key. It's frigging brillant, I really did put that song on repeat when I got the CD just to here that one part.

For that matter, there's a lot of songs where the key change does it for me. When it's done right, key changes sound really cool.

I'm reminded of that scene in Boogie Nights where some major drug deal is supposed to go down and the supplier makes every body stop talking because his favorite part of "Sister Christian" is playing.

DBTs -- "Puttin' People on the Moon" -- "And all them politicians, they all lyin' sacks of shit/They say better days upon us but I'm sucking left hind tit"

Also DBTs -- "Let There Be Rock" -- "With Bon Scott singin', the Let There Be Rock Tour/With Bon Scott singin'..."

Elvis Costello -- "Green Shirt" -- "Who put these fingerprints on my imagination"

maaaaan... that scene is boogie nights is one of the most tense things i've ever seen in a movie. what with the twitchy freebasing drug dealer waving his gun around, the asian boy toy lighting firecrackers, the loud ass music and knowing that our heroes are trying to rip the guy off and could be found out at any second... yup... the tension's turned up to 11 on that one...

Sex Pistols - "God Save The Queen"
When there's no future
How can there be sin
We're the flowers in the dustbin

Neil Young - "Cinnamon Girl"
I love the giddy "whoo" in the outro - captures the mood perfectly!

Wilco - "Poor Places"
Someone ties a bow
In my backyard to show me love

The Fall-"Mountain Energei"
So I went fishing
A note from a fish said:
'Dear dope, if you wanna catch us
You need a rod and a line
Signed the fish'
