"Fox in the Snow" by Belle and Sebastian:
It's just so freaking sad, I had to include it. I want to make sure somebody’s crying.
"Casimir Pulaski Day" by Sufjan Stevens:
"When I Get to the Borderline" by Richard and Linda Thompson:
But let's not despair. Richard's good for a rueful grin, if not exactly a laugh.
"Wall of Death" by Richard and Linda Thompson:
"That Day is Done" by Elvis Costello:
Co-written by Paul McCartney, it's an uncharacteristically direct look at death. You can play it instead of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".
And that's that.
