Songs that tell stories

I've said before that music is a huge influence when I'm writing. The playlist is a powerful weapon for getting you in the mood for what you're writing. But songs also tell stories that can directly influence - and sometimes create - a story. Here are a few:

Pearl Jam - Betterman

Metallica - One
NB: this song was entirely influenced by Johnny Got His Gun (the movie featured in this video)

The Who - Behind Blue Eyes

Metallica - Low Man's Lyric

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms

Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues

The Rolling Stones - Angie

Bob Dylan - Going Going Gone

Kim Richey - A Place Called Home

Pearl Jam - Deep

Feel free to share your own story-telling songs in the comments.
