Song(s) That Make(s) Me Sad

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
