That whole album is sad. Or at least a good bit of it.
I Can’t Make You Love Me
Townes Van Zandt - Tecumseh Valley. If it comes on in the car I have to shut it off if I can't pull over and stop.
You Are My Sunshine
Chocolate Genius "My Mother"
"He Stopped Loving Her, Today" gotta be sung by the 'Ol Possum, though.
Paul Bowles, "Three," to a text by Tennessee Williams.
Walking on Sunshine.
I mean she's gotta be burning her feet. That's so sad.
Dan Fogelberg - Same Old Lang Syne
For no one
The Apartments - Twenty One — in which the singer reflects on the events that will be missed after his young child died.
I remember all the birthday parties
Children carrying balloons
Streamers tied to a wooden fence
Some of them let go too soon.
Let go – too soon
I carried you on my hip at first
I carried you on my shoulders
Carried you to a long black car
You will never get any older
Where are the parties that were never held and
Where are the snows that never fell
Aimee Mann Thirty One Today
This was my introduction to this artist. This hit me so hard I became a fan instantly. If I had started with a different song, I don't know if I would have become a fan - but I'm glad it was this one because the singer has become one of my closest friends.
And, tragically, it is based on a true story.
"Tears in Heaven"
Darlin' Kate - Emmylou Harris
Joni Mitchell - Little Green
