You've probably heard of Neko Case, and maybe even love her. She often sings with the New Pornographers, and has pipes so powerful they'll stop you in your tracks, make you cry, all that stuff amazing voices can do. Whenever I'm in LA, a beautiful, melancholy song she sings called "In California," actually written by a lady named Lisa Marr, pops into my head a lot. It captures how you feel when your mood doesn't match the sun. It also references Bonnie Brae, a superbly named street you drive past a lot if you're staying Downtown and don't like to ever take the highway.
