* "Message in a Bottle" by ThePolice. Chorus is "I'll send an s.o.s. to the world/I'll send an s.o.s. to the world/I hope that someone gets my/I hope that someone gets my/I hope that someone gets my/Message in a bottle, yeah/Message in a bottle, yeah."

Third verse makes it clear that the "deserted island" is a metaphor for loneliness, and the "message in a bottle" is a metaphor for attempts to reach out to others and make connections.

* J. Michael Harter's "Hard Call to Make" is a non-chorus variant. Every verse ends with the line "When it's your dad, that's a hard call to make." The first verse is about a controversial little league baseball umpire call; the second, about calling his dad after being arrested for drunk driving with friends; and the third, about deciding whether or not to pull the now-ailing father off life support.
