Tenebrous Audio

I have to thank my good friend David for this dark musical interlude. This CD compilation is justly called Going Down. I offered them as my penultimate wrap to this dark week (w/ appropriate videos where available).

-when I saw the opening song, I knew this was going to be a great mix
2. Moody Blues Melancholy Man
-the standard rendition with some uplifting but dark winter scenes for mood(y)
3. Three Dog Night Easy To Be Hard
-1970 version with long hair and no smoothed out big band trappings
4. Police King Of Pain
-reunion tour version from Rio 2007
5. Van Morrison Melancholia
-a real hidden gem but hard to find on the net, only a thirty second snippet
6. M*A*S*H Theme Suicide Is Painless
-video is the funeral scene from the movie
7. Steppenwolf Desperation
-from the album Rest In Piece
8. Natalie Merchant Break Your Heart
-I know that it will hurt, I know that it will break your heart
-with apologies, but the video is nearly the point of no return Otis
10. Sting Fragile
-listening to Sting and watching him are different experiences colored by gender
11. Peter Gabriel Don't Give Up
-if he had never left Genesis, you wouldn't know who Phil Collins is
12. The Who Behind Blue Eyes
-for something a little different, the Limp Bizkit cover
13. Van Morrison Underlying Depression
-the best I can do is the lyrics; too bad because the two Morrison songs on this list are brilliant
-a truly great cover by Annie Lennox
15. The Doors The End
-from the iconic opening of Apocalypse Now
