Elvis Costello’s *Favourite Hour” from his album “Brutal Youth” I don’t know why but I ball like a baby every time.

And… “Baby Mine” from “Dumbo”

*Costello is British

@ ppcakes-Heck yeah! Limousine is real sad. As a matter of fact, “the devil and god…” is a real depressing album. I love brand new though!

Since it just popped up on my iPod shuffle yesterday, I’ll say one of mine is Our Town by Iris deMent. Fans of Northern Exposure may be familiar with it since it played at the very end of the final episode.
