DinosaurJones' Rec Contest ROUND 6!!!!!!

All right, we started with about 20, and we are down to 5. I think I've been pretty easy on the criteria up until now, pretty broad... so to my remaining 5 contestants, UniqueUniverse, Drifter, SCREAM!, TheSpirit and Dewinged, let's make things a little more complicated... This round, I want STORY SONGS. Now, several that I know of have no chorus or refrain, though that's not a requirement. You might be hard pressed to see what I mean, so I'll give several examples. You might think "But Dinosaur, aren't all songs stories?" IN A SENSE, but not quite... let's move onto some examples for your benefit.
1The Raconteurs
Consolers of the Lonely


Carolina Drama

2Lionize
Superczar and the Vulture


The Ballad of Ronnie Buttons

https://youtu.be/dxq4qHCCfD4
3Sycamore Smith
Redux


The Man With Skeleton Arms - Here's an example that has a refrain/chorus.

4Trophy Scars
Never Born, Never Dead


TheSpirit

Messengers - Okay, this is really good. It's somber and dramatic without being over the top. I've never really delved into Trophy Scars before (I think I've only heard "Darkness, Oh Hell" I really like the vox, and the music is well written, and it's also a great story. The last lines of this song are actually pretty haunting.

4.2/5
5Arlo Guthrie
Alice's Restaurant


Drifter

Alice's Restaurant Massacree - What the actual fuck is going on.

4.2/5
6Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


Dewinged

The Boxer - This is a pleasant track, and it's actually more bombastic than I expected it to be, with a plethora of instruments that come in throughout the run time. I've not really listened to a lot of Simon & Garfunkel, and not been huge into what I've heard, but this is an enjoyable song.

4.0/5
7Tenacious D
Tenacious D


SCREAM!

Tribute - Haven't heard this song in a LONG time. The weird thing is that, for a "comedy" band, Jack Black is actually quite a talented singer, and KG is a VERY talented guitar player. They manage to write some pretty good songs, despite how ridiculous a lot of them are. This song was popular not just because it was funny, but also because it's a good song in it's own right. Also, Jack's scatting/nonsense-spewing is always a good time.

3.7/5 ***ELIMINATED***
8Harry Chapin
Verities & Balderdash


UniqueUniverse

Cat's In the Cradle - I think everyone knows this song, but I haven't actually sat down to really take the time to listen to the lyrics, or in depth. Dammit, what a sad song. I don't think it's the most challenging song musically speaking, but the lyrics are not meant for a good time T_T

4.4/5
