The entire album Sea Change

229 Round the Bend - Beck
230 Bang Band - Nancy Sinatra
231 Forever and Always - Taylor Swift

A really good song, full of emotion.

232 Boulder to Birmingham - Emmylou Harris
233 The Rose - Bette Midler
234 In the Ghetto - Elvis Presley
235 Superstar - Carpenters
236 Alone Again (Naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan
237 Broken - Jake Bugg
238 Skinny Love - Birdy
239 Heart Like a Wheel - Linda Ronstadt
240 A Trophy Father's Trophy Son - Sleeping With Sirens

Although the song may not sound beautiful if it just had generic lyrics, the lyrics to this song pack in so much emotion. I'm unsure as to whether Kellin Quinn is singing from experience or understanding of the situation, but he's singing to his father and asking why he left and why he wasn't there. Its so emotional and some of the lyrics sound like a child asking, I.E. "why are you walking away? "
