The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hyperballad - Björk
22 Fade Into You - Mazzy Star
23 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

24 One - U2
25 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers
26 Con Te Partiro - Andrea Bocelli
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 Karma Police - Radiohead
32 Wicked Game - Chris Isaak
33 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

34 Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley
35 Starálfur - Sigur RÓS
36 Blindfold - Morcheeba
37 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

38 Henry Lee - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
39 Nella Fantasia - Sarah Brightman
40 Emotionally Yours - The O'Jays
