Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven

Soul Asylum - Runaway Train

These songs were pretty big when I was in high school. I overlooked how heartbreaking these 2 songs were. Now as a parent these lyrics hit very deep

Thanks for all the posts. I try to listen to everything that gets posted.

To the people that have posted songs but offered no explanation, would you care to offer one? Why does the song come across as sad? Is it the lyrics? The voice? Perhaps the sound of the instruments? Do any of the lyrics stand out or strike you as having powerful emotions behind them? Does a song remind you of a situation or person?

Yea it's very applicable to my life. I'm certainly no failure or anything but I haven't created a family of my own and my life has been a little unconventional. I can relate. Overall, I'm blessed and been very happy in many areas but there have been periods where I had to ask myself, " What happened to my optimism and desire for the nuclear American ideal?"

The Antlers - Kettering

The reason I posted that is because it is basically the saddest song I have ever heard. The album it is from is a semi-biographical documentation of the lead singer watching his girlfriend die in hospice care. The lyrics for Kettering are pretty devastating.

I love depressing music. Not sure why because I'm not a particularly negative person or whatever, but I just do.

Here are some of my favorites:
Gorillaz - El Manana - Should really watch the video too, it's too depressing haha, but I love it.
Modest Mouse - The World At Large
Citizen Cope - Sideways (ft. Santana) - Perfect rainy day song
The National - About Today
