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?

Videotape: I guess I find it relatable. It's made me cry a few times. 'No matter what happens now we shouldn't be afraid, because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen.'

Gets me every time.

Someone Like You: A song about heartbreak. I could have written that damn song. I can't get over someone and that song sums up how I feel pretty accurately. plus, I love Adele.

Dance With My Father: I've never met my father. I guess it brings up weird emotions. Also it's a beautiful song. Sad, but beautiful.

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

The back story behind the Eric Clapton song is his son had crawled off a hotel balcony and died at 4

Runaway Train is written about kids who runaway from home and have resorted to drugs. They look desperately for somebody to save them and bring them out but they've become too addicted that it leads to suicide.

I guess I never became aware of this until having my son which opened my eyes to these lyrics and feel the pain of losing a child. These sons were hits when I was a teen so I really looked at these tunes as yawners, never really looked at the meaning

TheReturn - Good call on The National. The lead singer just has a voice made for those types of somber songs. I really like Cardinal Song.

This one will always eat me up inside. I did the music for a family member's funeral once.

It is gorgeous. But now it always represents pain.

A friend once told me it sounds like he was crying. And it does. This one has significance to me because of this friend. Also, it's a good song.

First, I think this is a great thread.

The song I would like to add to this thread is called "Ready for Love" by India Arie.

I recently fell in love with this song after watching the video. She sings it with so much emotion and it seems like she really means what she's singing. There's a part between 2:53 to 3:27 where she just seems so vulnerable and it makes me feel a certain way inside. I'm not even attracted to her, but the way she looks when she's speaking those words really gets to me. I just want to comfort her and give her what she wants.

I know most of the guys on here are unemotional "tough guys" but take the time to watch this video if you get the chance. It just shows how emotional women can be and how strong the feel about finding love and things like that. As a man, sometimes its good to try to see things from a woman's point of view.
