A Sad Song
Been thinking about sad songs lately.
The tune at the bottom of this post just gets me right in the throat. It's called "Hackensack" by Fountains of Wayne. A masterfully written little one-way conversation, this one is a credit to writers Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger. One of the saddest songs I know.
Maybe I should start a thread here...how about suggesting some other songs you find to be real tear-jerkers?
Other really, really sad songs, off the top of my head:
*I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now) -- Otis Redding
*Dock of the Bay -- Otis Redding
*Torpedo -- Julian Cope
*For No One -- The Beatles
*Favourite Hour -- Elvis Costello
*End of the Rainbow -- Richard & Linda Thompson
*Holocaust -- Big Star
*Pearls -- Sade
*Place to Be -- Nick Drake
*I Had a King -- Joni Mitchell
*Perfect Circle -- REM
*Camera -- REM
*Find the River -- REM
*This Night Has Opened My Eyes -- The Smiths
*Angel Eyes -- Ella Fitzgerald
*Alone Again Or -- Love
*Sleepless Nights -- The Everly Brothers
I must be forgetting about a million great ones. Help!
