Radiohead's saddest song

So this Spotify valence thing has me all curious which means I;m going to test it. You guys can test it with me. The higher the value, the more positive mood for the song. First album "Imperial Bedroom" by Elvis Costello. I predict the saddest song is "Almost Blue" WINNER: "Almost Blue" - I AM AWESOME AT THIS GAME! @2 The Hamilton Soundtrack. I predict "It's Quiet Uptown" WINNER: "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story" - it's the last song and really, I should have gotten that one though I cry way more with "It's Quiet Uptown". #3 Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks". This one I predict "If you see her, say Hello" WINNER: Damn, it's "Simple Twist of Faith". Huh, I am NOT doing well. #4 Prince's Sign o the Times - This seems easy, right? Isn't it "The Cross"? WINNER: "The Cross" and it ain't even close! One more try. Let's go with "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' I predict "Reservations" and I will be shocked if I am wrong. WINNER: Reservations!!! MIC DROP! Thanks for playing.

Protest Songs

MC - When's our next gathering and what's the theme?  Protest songs sure feels timely...  Like the one I'm stuck on 'White Flag' which goes a little something like this:

I'll be an army
no you're not gonna stop me getting through
I'll sing a marching song and
stomp through the halls
louder than you
I could surrender
but I'd just be pretending
no I'd rather be dead than live a lie
Burn the white flag!
