Music For Servers To Break Down By. Let's compile a list. Inspired by jonmc's comment in another post, the compilation definitely needs "Don't Fear the Reaper" on it.
Obviously, Breakdown by TP and the Heartbreakers, would be included...

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

A Wing And A Prayer, by The Mission.

Murder at the Trailer Park, by the Cowboy Junkies, 'cause I always imagine Jrun to be a David Lynch villain: sleaze, animal brutality and stupidity. Jrun carelessly waves around shotgus and occasionally blows it's own head off, but it's meaner than a stepped-on rattler in the midday sun.

I logged in on a Monday and my page stood still
Da J run run run, da J run run
I came back sometime later but to no avail
Da J run run run, da J run run
Yeah, my page stood still, yeah, I'm feelin' ill,
And when I hit reload, da J run run run, da J run run

damn Capn beat me to it ...

Bye, bye Miss American Pie.
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry.
And good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing, "This will be the day that I die...
This will be the day that I die."

When I woke up this morning,
You were on my mind
And you were on my mind
I got troubles, whoa-oh
I got worries, whoa-oh
I got wounds to bind

So, I went to the MeCha
Just to ease my pain
Said just to ease my pain
I got troubles, whoa-oh
I got worried, whoa-oh
I came home again

And I got a feelin'
Down in my shoes
Said way down in my shoes
Well, I got to ramble, whoa-oh
I got to move on, whoa-oh
I got to walk away the Blue...
