    Hello Whitechapel. Summer is almost coming to a close, and it's been one of the most fun summers of my life. I've done alot of fun things, and unfortunately one of my friends has to to go to a University that is in another province. I'm going to miss her terribly, (and I am a little intoxicated right now as I write this), but I was wondering if any of you would suggest some great friendship/going away/whatever songs for me to put on an album for her.

    Oh and she leaves in 3 days, so there is a time limit.

    So, any ideas anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anything by O.D.B.

    In seriousness, Ella Fitzgeral and Louis Armstrong's "They Can't Take that From Us" is a great song about missing each other on the bumpy road of love. Or something. I think it has the feel of what you're looking for.

    How 'bout "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her", by Simon & Garfunkel?

    I like Adem - These are your friends - it's a bit dour, but it's a good reminder to stay in touch and that friends are for leaning on.

    dude, write that shit yourself! it's the only way it'll be completely personal to you.

    or, I'm thinking some Tom Waits, perhaps something off Blue Valentine - but thats pretty heavy/beautiful poetry right there.

    All I'm gonna say is if you put Time Of Your Life by Green Day on it I will hunt you down and beat you.

    Me and You and A Bottle Of Buckie by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists is a good going away song.

    "Everytime You Go Away" by Paul Young.
    Hey, it worked on me. I played it in the record store I was working in during college to a girl I had a crush on, she went off to study at Cambridge, then came back to the States during Christmas, we fell for each other, then she went back to Cambridge, had her step father fly me over to spend two weeks in England with her, I went back to the states... Then she had a calling and became a nun.
    Oh God, this story is 100% true.

    Um...So yeah, that song.

    I'm sorry, I'll come back when I've had some sleep.
