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.
