Dead Teenager songs for Halloween

MaryB at Shorty PJs is continuing the list of Hallowe'en songs. To recap, she started with "Monster Mash," and then I offered her this collection.

Well, anyway, now MaryB's pointed us to a classic and astoundingly comprehensive list of Dead Teenager songs. This list is subdivided into categories: Cars, Motorcycles, Trains, Surfing (or other sea related including sharks and oysters), Water related, Boyfriend (and other murder ballads), Disease, Drugs, War, Suicide, Gun fights, Flying things, and "Unspecified or other." I had NO IDEA.

Just goes to show it's a very dangerous world.

UPDATE: I forgot a very important Halloween song. No death.
Love Potion #9

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a shop down on 34th and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion #9

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I'd been this way since 1956
She stretched out her palm and she made a magic sign
She said 'What you need boy is Love Potion #9'

... I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion #9...
