More Evanescent than Evanescence

My recent post mentioning Evanescence got me thinking about just how goth the band's lyrics and song titles are. Here are the topics of their songs, roughly in decreasing order of prevalence:
  • Death
  • Dying
  • Love gone bad
  • Death
  • Submission
  • Hatred
  • Sleep (probably a metaphor for death)
  • Death
So, with that in mind, I'd like to suggest a little game. Below, I've listed several true Evanescence song titles and several over-the-top names that I've just made up on the spot. Your job is to pick out the real ones. And don't cheat by looking at my last post or poking around online! Ready?
  1. Undone
  2. Nightmare
  3. Tourniquet
  4. Love is a Stranger
  5. Bleeding Heart
  6. My Last Breath
  7. Breathe no More
  8. Unfortunate
  9. Haunted
  10. Love is Stronger than Death
  11. Death is Stronger than Love
  12. Everybody's Fool
  13. Going Under
  14. Almost Human
  15. Taking Over Me
  16. The Burning Circle
  17. Thoughtless
  18. Whisper
  19. Crybaby
Here are the answers. You might need to copy and paste them into an editor to read them: 3, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18

Are you up for the bonus round? If so, please submit your best more-goth-than-the-goths-are song titles via the comment link below. As always, the author my favorite suggestion(s) will win ...well, nothing of any value.

    Answers that I know:
    Tournique, My Last Breath, My Immortal ...?
    (Dr K and I are currently recording a cover of "My Immortal").

    Bah, Evanescence is pop-goth, but good music. If you want good goth-like titles, just look at metal cd. Metallica's "... and justice for all" is a great example: songs like "To live is to die", "Frayed Ends of Sanity", "Harvester of Sorrow", "The Shortest Straw". Actually, I think the album is about graduate school...
