Songs that should be films #2

This posting should be titled songs that could be films... I would hate to think that these songs may only have come to being as little seen films and never been the achingly great songs that they are.

And, sheesh, okay, they'd mostly be intimate, fucked up, darkly romantic character dramas full of yearning, long nights and sweat but who can afford to make anything else... and I've never really heard a song that sounds like Avatar unless you count the meandering nonsense they play in health spas or something by Enya...

"You Came To Me Like A Cancer Lain Dormant Until It Blossomed Like A Rose" - My Disco
"The Way" - Bonnie "Prince" Billy
"Mistress" - Red House Painters (or the sweet, breakable version by Holly Throsby)
"Vapour Trail" - Ride
"Kangaroo" - Big Star
"Love's Gonna Get Cha (Material Love)" - Boogie Down Productions
"The Outer Banks" - The Album Leaf
"Monsoon" - ...and you will know us by the trail of dead
"Glamur" - Amiina
"Kreuzberg" - Bloc Party
"1969" - The Stooges
"We Could be Kings" - Gene
"Such Great Heights" - Iron and Wine (after Postal Service)
