17. "Sebastian" by Cockney Rebel
I was first introduced to Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel through Jonathan Rhys Meyers, sitting on a stage and looking quite like the cover to Bowie's Man Who Sold the World, in the film Velvet Goldmine. I then went to find the original album cut, which was even more cinematic than the film version. It's an odd song, a lot of glam-rock songs use descriptions that I won't pretend to fully understand, but it's beautiful and haunting, nonetheless. This is one of the few songs on my list that comes from an artist whose collected work I'm not a huge fan of, but this particular song resonates with me.
