I have a weakness for songs with stories in them. (I'd use the word ballad, but I'm not sure the encompasses everything.) Some of my favorites are about vengeance. Examples: The Decemberists' long pursuit of vengeance in "The Mariner's Revenge Song", Gillian Welch's short, instant vengeance in "Caleb Meyer".
Now I have a new one to add to the list. A mysterious, full throttled rocker from TWRP and The Protomen: "Phantom Racer". I particularly enjoy the chorus.
@gemlog Oh yes! I have listened to that many times, but I have packed away my music for over a decade, and I have forgotten much of what I had. Thank you for the reminder! I haven't heard Lorenna McKennitt in too long. :)
@gemlog Yes, I know and like that one. It came to mind while I was listening to Stan Rogers. :)
I remember that album cover and that song from when I was about 5-6 years old.
