Here are some of these songs, taken from a playlist I created yesterday. Not all of these are "classics," but the overall mood fits mine and it seems to be driving me to read more than I have in recent months:
Clan of Xymox, "A Day"
Death in June, "The Calling (Mk II)"
Big Black, "Kerosene"
Love and Rockets, "Rain Bird"
Revolting Cocks, "Crackin' Up"

Siouxsie & The Banshees, "Spellbound"
The Church, "Under the Milky Way"
The Jesus and Mary Chain, "The Living End"

Front Line Assembly, "Provision"
Bauhaus, "Ziggy Stardust"
Screams for Tina, "Eleven Eleven"
