    Nobody will ever see this because at the moment the thread is 7 pages long, by my vote will always and forever be Townes Van Zandt - Marie.

    Harmony vocals by then-unknown Dolly Parton, who wrote the song.

    I think we are about the same age (I’m 67). I had a little turquoise Philco radio on my nightstand and listened to it until the wee hours when I was 10 to 16. I mainly listened to WLS, KAAY, WHB, and WWL, all 50,000-watt, clear-channel powerhouses.

    The Last Kiss was hugely popular for years. It was commonly sung on school bus rides. Everybody knew the words. Before cars and highways were made safer, auto accidents were the leading cause of teen deaths in the US. Even in the tiny town where I lived, several kids died in car accidents every year. Dead teenager songs addressed the reality of teenager life.

    Lots to choose from and to top the list it must apply to the present, which keeps changing.
    This one works in a pinch, as it doesn't apply to me personally.

    My final music theory composition in high school was sad and the grade I received reflected as much.

    I remember this song well. Kind of spooked me or something.

    I remember hearing Good Vibrations on late night radio initially, but later appeared on daytime shifts. It energized me more and more with each hearing.
