T's failures in digging up her old music  
 Oh my god. My attempts at research are astounding failures when "research" equals "going through lots of old shit from high school." Things I learned: 

- I used to like Family Guy. 
- I listened to Nightwish WAY TOO GODDAMN MUCH. (This is actually relevant to my research.) 
- Loreena McKennitt was basically my patron saint. This has not changed significantly, I suppose. 
- Oh yeah. The Darkness existed. 
- I enjoyed reading The Da Vinci Code. 

I was on the search for a particular song that I used to have (on the old computer that is basically dead now). I remember very little about it. I remember that it had kind of a creepy, slow-ish, sad/dark/cynical maybe sinister feel to it, and that it talked about angels (I believed it had "angel" in the title), and that the band name started with M. Oh, and the vocalist was male. Or... male-sounding. (Never know, okay.) But yeah. A deeper voice. And... it was in English. Besides that, I can pretty much just give my impressions. I always got the idea, listening to it, of a bunch of angels/people in an opium den or something. 

There are multiple "angel" songs that I cannot track down. I remember when I was a youngling creature (like 4, 5) and had two favorite songs - "A Little Less Conversation" (I don't even... why this was a favorite at 5 years old... I don't) and a soft, piano-y angel song with a female vocalist. Several times I remember turning on the radio at night before sleeping, and the first measures of the song would be playing. And I've looked for it occasionally on the internet over the last ... 12 years or so, but I have so little to go on and there are, of course, a thousand billion songs with "angel" in the title. 

So I'm basically spending this evening listening to a bunch of songs called "Angel." SO HELPFUL. :( But I did find this, which I totally would have listened to a thousand times during high school and ... still would now:

Nope, nowhere near that energetic. I never heard my creepy angel song on the radio. Just... picked it up randomly on the internet at some point. Like a hitchhiker.
