21 Your Ghost - Kristin Hersh

With backing vocals from Michael Stipe (of R.E.M.), written by Kristin Hersh and later covered by Greg Laswell.
This song is a bit special for me, as we were in our late teens, two of my closest friends died unexpectedly in the space of 2 years. This is one of a few songs which are for ever related to them in my mind, I almost feel like I can "connect" to them listening to those songs. - Lotuscandy

22 Jesus to a Child - George Michael
23 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers
24 Con Te Partiro - Andrea Bocelli
25 Fade Into You - Mazzy Star
26 One - U2
27 Live Forever - Oasis
28 Something in the Way - Nirvana
29 Street Spirit (Fade Out) - Radiohead
30 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue
31 Wicked Game - Chris Isaak
32 Sanvean - I Am Your Shadow - Lisa Gerrard

She is known as part of the music group Dead Can Dance with music partner Brendan Perry, and has a successful solo career that includes soundtrack work.
She co-wrote the song with composer Andrew Claxton, during rehearsals in Ireland for the 1993 Dead Can Dance international tour, missing her family that had remained in Australia. Her incredible contralto voice delivers the message magnificently, in a euphonic and emotional pseudo-language (Glossolalia) that she often uses in her work. - Lotuscandy

33 Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley
34 Starálfur - Sigur RÓS
35 Blindfold - Morcheeba
36 All is Full of Love - Björk

There's a live version on youtube (the "amazing live performance") which gives me goose bumps every time I listen to it, it's even better than the original. - Lotuscandy

37 Henry Lee - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
38 Nella Fantasia - Sarah Brightman
39 Emotionally Yours - The O'Jays
40 Make You Feel My Love - Bob Dylan
