Tune That Name: D-E

The news of my impending death came at a really bad time for me …

Danny Says,” Tom Waits
The Lament of Desmond R.G. Underwood-Frederick IV,” Steve Taylor
Modern Don Juan,” Buddy Holly
Goodbye Earl,” Dixie Chicks

Goodbye Earl,” Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
“Ed Again,” The Swirling Eddies
Ed Takes a Vacation,” The Swirling Eddies
Eddie’s Ragga,” Spoon
Come on Eileen,” Dexy’s Midnight Runners
Eleanor Rigby,” The Beatles
Eleanor Rigby,” Butch Ross
Eli, the Barrow Boy,” The Decemberists
“Song for Elie,” Ballydowse
Elliot,” Jeffrey Gaines
“Elly vs. the Eczema,” The Henry Clay People
Emily,” Los Lobos
Emily,” Randy Stonehill
Emily, Sing Something Sweet,” Bright Eyes
For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her,” Simon and Garfunkel
Emma’s Song,” Sinead O’Connor
Hey Eugene!” Pink Martini
Evangeline,” Matthew Sweet
Evelyn Is Not Real,” My Morning Jacket

I really could’ve sworn I had Elton John’s “Daniel” in iTunes. Must’ve been the clouds in my eyes.

And “Emily,” but no “Evangeline” and no “Wake Up Dolores,” so it seems I never managed to digitize all the old Los Lobos vinyl.

Since I couldn’t find a video link for “Elly vs. the Eczema,” here’s the Henry Clay People covering “Born to Run.”

  • I had a great song picked out before I realized that F does not fall between D and E. Don’t ask me how, but at that hour of the morning, I saw D-E and somehow thought D, F, G, E. I’m going to be sneaky and use the first word of the song title and get in some Fs anyway, though. :p
