    adjective clause connector using preposition

    Do these sound natural?
    "She is the one about whom I talked."
    "She is the one for whom I'm waiting."
    "This is the tune to that I always listen."
    "This is the clothes for which I'm looking."

    This is the tune (that) I always listen to. -This is the tune to which I always listen.
    These are the clothes (that) I am looking for. - These are the clothes for which I am looking.
