Day 4 of the 30-day music challenge
Probably really mainstream choices because too often these songs are used as background music to disaster-related videos/news -___-”
Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton
Even without knowing the stories behind this song, the song hits a raw nerve with me because I have always been afraid of losing someone close to me.
Everybody Hurts – R.E.M
If you think you’ve had too much/Of this life, well hang on.
Nothing Compares 2 U – Sinead O’Connor
The first time I heard this song was when I was around 10-11 years old, probably about 2 years after the song was released. The sadness Sinead convey in the video is so vivid. The saddest lyric for me must be:
All the flowers that u planted, mama
In the back yard
All died when u went away
