Bob Dylan - Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Stagger Lee
Stagger Lee as soon as I saw the thread title. Not a huge fan usually, but Babies - Pulp is a good 'un.

Wickerman being the epic. Inside Susan is great as well.
Nick Cave - O'Malley's Bar
That Craig David one.

"And it was the dwarves that were given the task of digging the ditch.."
I find it hilarious
"Moses says to Noah "shoulda dugga deepa one"
Their grizzled faces like dying moons
Still dirty from the digging done"
"You know those big lipped fish, that clean the ocean floor..."
"I was so drunk and full of rage that I could hardly speak,
A fag in a whalebone corset draping his d1ck aross my cheek"

The Decemberists - The Mariner's Revenge Song
'ode to billie joe' by bobbi gentry.
they even made a film out of it.
How is this even a discussion?
Stagger Lee, Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror, The Ballad of Robert Moore and Betty Coltrane, Lily, Rosemary & the Jack of Hearts and lots of other songs are erally really really really good too. truth
(except don't know third one, but I'll trust you). But musically 'Breadcrumb Trail' is simply one of the most incredible things ever and it combines it brilliantly with the narrative lyrics. 'Stagger Lee' is alright musically, truth, but take like 'Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror'... its excellent lyrically but as a song as a whole to my mind, it falls slightly flat (and I know you will feel violated on a personal level by my saying that Tristan, I'm sorry).
to clarify 'falls flat' is not actually the best term here- what I mean is you can't listen to it casually, you have to actually listen to it like watching with the video and to get the full point of the song.
about what is the purpose of music?
But either way I like 'Breadcrumb Trail' better.
"i was a PFC on a search patrol, huntin' Charlie down..."
because of the pictures it puts into my head
Mourners of St Paul's - Liam Frost
Ballad of Bitter Honey by Eef Barzelay.
by some distance
you think it's crap? I don't care!
Anyone who thinks it's crap is just trying to look cool. And possibly has no soul.

Edgar Allen Poe reinterpreted by an Ivy League graduate rapping with a laptop and a Brand New sample. It really shouldn't work. but it does.
