Two very, very sad ones (be warned):

Leonard Cohen's "It Seems So Long Ago Nancy" about a woman who commits suicide

It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
A forty five beside her head,
An open telephone.

Tom Paxton's "Phil," about the suicide of Phil Ochs

The phone started ringing, had I heard about it?
I shook every time I heard it ring
What was my reaction? I put the phone down
That was the only news that was fit to sing

They ask about Dylan, about MacDougal Street and Third
Question piled on question and each question more absurd
