I just LOVE that O'Sullivan song! Mine would be "One More Day" by Diamond Rio. Came out during a disasterous time in my life. The melody, some of the lyrics, but especially the emotion really tore me up at the time.

Oh, yes, Seasons in the Sun - I remember hearing that on the school bus radio and it used to really get me misty-eyed and make me contemplate life! Of course, I was only in kindergarten at the time, but even now I have those memories of sadness that it conjured.
