Sad Songs

Today's post is part of a blog-fest to share Sad Songs. The other participants can be found HERE

The idea is to "List the songs that move your spirit, cut deep into your soul, and threaten to break your heart." It has taken me a while to come up with a list, not least because I also wanted to provide access to the songs in case you haven't heard them before. So there was a fair bit of searching YouTube to bring the list! So here it is in No particular order...

Artist : Pavlovs Dog
Track : Julia

Reason. When I listen to this I think of looking through a window in autumn and missing the summer. The lyrics speak of being so in love you cant live without that persons reciprocated love



Artist : Various (BBC Children in need single)
Track : Perfect Day

Reason. Perhaps not sad, but has a melancholy tune and thoughtfully delivered lyrics.



Artist : Eric Clapton
Track : Tears in Heaven

Reason. Written after the death of his son... Don't think I need to say any more.



Artist : Sinead O'Connor
Track : Nothing Compares to You

Reason. Seeing an artist shed real tears, due to the emotion of a song is very moving.

The following clip was the original video and i could only find it on Vevo which will not properly embed on blogger, you may be asked to click the link to watch on YouTube.

You are the second one so far to include Tears In Heaven. My favorite on your list.

Ironic by Alanis Morisette is sad. Because it is not ironic at all...which is ironic. Don't you think? :)

So glad I'm not the only one to include an Eric Clapton track. I think Tears in Heaven is probably on my list of 'just too sad songs'.

I'd not heard those first two before. I love that Sinead song.

Thanks for all the comments, having just visited all your lists I realise there are so many more songs I could have added to my list !

Nothing Compares to You - such a great, great song. It's on several of my playlists!

Clapton was popular for this blogfest. I guess we all feel his pain with that song.
Thanks for sharing.
