    • 10. Brick by Ben Folds Five
      This song is so simple, a short story about a sad couple just trying to get through the day. If you can't relate to this song, there's something wrong going on in your life. It's a beautiful song and seems to say everything I've eve needed to.
    • 9. A Long December by Counting Crows
      It's a good song, how else can you say it? I listen to it maybe once or twice a year, and it always makes me smile.

    • 7. You Oughtta Know by Alanis Morissette

      It's a song I've loved from the moment I heard it and I think I always will.

    • 2. Creep by Radiohead
      Sexy sexy sexy.
    • 1. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Pepers
      Red Hot Chili Peppers have always been so amazing. This is true art. I have not heard a song by this sexy, sexy band that I don't like but I first heard this song when I was going through a suicidal period myself. It spoke to me like a song is supposed to.

    Honorable mention goe to "Glycerine" by Bush and "Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots (who have some many freaking great songs). DOWN WITH HIP HOP AND POP!!!
