So many! Harpmolly I've got to second your choice of Famous Blue Raincoat - my favourite Cohen song.
From Nick Cave's 'The Ship Song':
Come sail your ships around me
and burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby,
Every time you call around
And another Australian song - 'I Was Only Nineteen' by Redgum
And Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon
God help me
He was goin' home in June
no matter how many thousands of times I have heard this song, it still sends a shiver down my spine everytime.
The day Jeannie married was the day Jeannie died
And the day that young Anachie Gordon came home on the tide.
I have to stop now and go to work but I am thinking of heaps!
What a GREAT thread!!!
