Songs for Slideshows, Part Two

My last songs for slideshows post has continued to get lots of hits. There must be plenty of people needing something less cheesy for the slideshows they're putting together than Butterfly Kisses and Forever Young. So here is a new list.

And just a request...if you've found songs you've liked that are on neither of my lists, would you mind commenting? I'd love to keep the list growing. (You can comment anonymously if you'd like...)

Love songs

At My Most Beautiful--R.E.M.
Angel--Jack Johnson
So Much Love--Rocket Summer
With Me--Sum 41
The Way I Am--Ingrid Michaelson
The Luckiest--Ben Folds
Come What May--Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

Misc

Perfect Day--Hoku
I Just Love You--Five for Fighting (kids)
Beautiful Day--U2
Oh Very Young--Cat Stevens (kids)

And break up songs...wouldn't a Break Up Slideshow be funny? (Or is that just my warped sense of humor? When I was 17, I would have been all OVER a break up slideshow...)

Stay or Leave--Dave Matthews Band
When Did Your Heart Go Missing--Rooney
Shut Up and Let Me Go--The Ting Tings
Sad Song--September

Or equally unhealthy...an Unrequited Love/Stalking Slideshow...

I'll be Waiting--Lenny Kravitz
Why Do You Want Him--Green Day
Every Breath You Take--The Police
I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You--Colin Hay (I love this song)
Willing to Wait--Sebadoh
Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want--The Smiths
Mr. Brightside--Killers

OK... I just have to add 2 breakup songs (hilarious idea, btw):
"Girl, Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" by Motley Crue, and "What It Takes" by Aerosmith.

Thanks for the great suggestions - I have saved your blog to my Favorites for future song ideas -
Two songs that I have used for my daughter's slide show are Sweet Pea- by Amos Lee and American Girl by Tom Petty - I love both of these because they are upbeat
