Was listening to the good 'ol iPod on my way into work this morning (makes the tube ride go much faster), and just as I got in I started to listen to Rock 'n Roll is where I hide (Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes), and it got me thinking, there are some really good songs out there that are actually stories (or more commonly known as Ballads), that take you through a plot line, character development and all of that... Some of my favourite ones are:
- Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (particular from Murder Ballads)
- Dave Graney (obviously)
- Dire Straits (Ride across the River being a good candidate)
- and my all time favourite.. Dead Eyes Opened Remix (always reminded me of an Edgar Allan Poe poem, thought it's not..)
Any other great storied music tracks? Ones that you'd recommend or that really speak to you?
