Sad songs- We love them- We need them

Hello everyone,

I was listening the other day to a sad song on my playlist and realized their ability to invoke a powerful emotional reaction. Usually about someone in your life. Your children, your special lady or man or maybe someone who is no longer living. I realized we need these songs to remind us life is short and to remember what is most important to us. I thought I would ask everyone to list a song or two that is special to them. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a sad song. I have children so I will start with a few songs that remind me to tell them I love them more often or give them an extra hug or two. 

Cats in the cradle- Harry Chapin

Jacobs Dream - Allison Krause 

Hell Is for Children- Pat Benetar



Elton John - Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Jason Isbell - Songs That She Sang in the Shower

Many more but these are two of my favorites. 

Some others:

Insensatez- Stacy Kent

What's New - Linda Ronstadt

It was a Very Good Year - Sinatra

At Seventeen - Janis Ian
