Initiation - theSTART

Lyrics:
a heart can only break so much
before it has to bleed
i want to split myself open
and bleed it out for you
until the sharp pain washes away
to dull throbs to nothing
i know these things should not be said
the voices in my head

but this is the only remedy
i know that will extinguish this
burning fire inside my heart

how many times will i be beat?
i'll die before they break me
or was i not meant for this earth?
to bleed and bleed again
i want to split myself open
and bleed it out for you
i know these things should not be said
and i am so sorry

but this is the only remedy
i know that will extinguish this
burning fire inside my heart

it's you
and me
and you
and a knife

it's you
and me
and you
and a knife

blood, right
blood, right
blood, right
it's my blood spilling tonight
blood, right
blood, right
it's my blood spilling tonight
and it's for good this time

'cause this is the only remedy
i know that will extinguish this
burning fire inside my heart

it's you
and me
and you
and a knife

Over-Nite Sensation - Frank Zappa

I say "some" because this list is by no means all-inclusive. Rather, it's just some of my favorite songs in alphabetical order, no more than 2 for each letter.

Self-imposed rules:
1. Include no more than two songs that begin with each letter of the alphabet
2. Ignore the articles "a", "an", and "the" when they're the first word in the song title
3. Only use one song per band (otherwise I could easily fill most of the list with songs by Nine Inch Nails and The Doors)
4. If a favorite song has no audio/video available, it must be excluded
5. Do NOT talk about Fight Club


Feel free to make your own list if you like it, as well as visit my other music lists.

Good idea for a list & an interesting mix!
You have me thinking what songs I would choose (..may see me take inspiration from you idea in future if I manage to choose my songs lol).
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at May 6 10:10
Oh god, I could spend some serious time with this list!! For now I'll have to limit myself to re-listening to that great Bjork song, Sage Francis song, and seeing what this Pigface song is all about. Great stuff man! You sir are a music guru.

Damn that'a a great Sage Francis tune...

*edit* Very cool leaping off from the great "Howl"! Also reminds me quite a bit of KMFDM's "Dogma" from XTORT. Neat-O!!!

Aagh! I'll be back.

Well, this list will be useful when I'm web browsing and want some music in the background. I've been thinking of a similar list... A little different though.

Great work, the giraffe!

Definitely going to steal this idea (with your permission of course :P).

Really great selections and my fingers are itching to reveal my Greatest Songs list after seeing how many members have uploaded their favourite songs and boy, your one beats them all by miles!

Just you wait till I upload my ones... But It's taking too long to finish!
