It’s a fragile thing, this life we lead,
If I think too much, I can’t get over-
-whelmed by the grace, by which we live
Our lives with death over our shoulders

Tuma, you always make me think. Let Down is a stellar pick, not really buying Karma Police though. Is that even sad?

The guy who sang Reflections of My Life just died btw, excellent old sad song by Marmalade.

It's a curious song at heart. Compare the melody with The Beatles Sexy Sadie: the third chord bellows -- like a string plucked with too much force. A backdrop like an organ begins and holds a curtain over an embroiled guitarist. The lyrics aren't emotional, at least before the coda, but it does reflect on despised people tackling the impossible. ("He buzzes like a fridge; Her Hitler Hairdo).... Not entirely pleasant.

The sadness, as you mentioned, is the Let Down. The Karma Police are there to take you away.

And her struggle to hold it together for a second there, when she's singing that 1st line. Beautiful.

Songs about family in general, but the Father Son/daughter... Mother son/ daughter relationship seem to get me the most

Cats in the Cradle is a given. This is another goodie

Re: My Favorite Sad Songs (and Yours)

Lots of great sad songs, but it'd be very hard to convince me there's a sadder, quality song than this:



Quote:
She said, "Andy, you're better than your past"
Winked at me and drained her glass
Cross-legged on a barstool, like nobody sits anymore
She said, "Andy, you're taking me home"
But I knew she planned to sleep alone
I'd carry her to bed, sweep up the hair from her floor
If I'd ****ed her before she got sick
I'd never hear the end of it
She don't have the spirit for that now
We just drink our drinks and laugh out loud
And ***** about the weekend crowd
And try to ignore the elephant somehow
Somehow
She said, "Andy, you crack me up"
Seagram's in a coffee cup
Sharecropper eyes, and the hair almost all gone
When she was drunk, she made cancer jokes
Made up her own doctors' notes
Surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone
But I'd sing her classic country songs
And she'd get high and sing along
She don't have a voice to sing with now
We burn these joints in effigy
And cry about what we used to be
Try to ignore the elephant somehow
Somehow
I buried her a thousand times, given up my place in line
But I don't give a damn about that now
There's one thing that's real clear to me
No one dies with dignity
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow
Somehow
Somehow
So many great lines in that song....."We burn these joints in effigy"

Re: My Favorite Sad Songs (and Yours)

Porter that's a pretty heavy song, I love it.


In a similar vein, I almost can't listen to this song anymore, as it reminds me of my best friend who died of ALS way too young.



Quote:
What were all those dreams we shared
Those many years ago?
What were all those plans we made now
Left beside the road?
Behind us in the road
More than friends, I always pledged
Cause friends they come and go
People change, as does everything
I wanted to grow old
I just want to grow old
Slide up next to me
I'm just a human being
I will take the blame
But just the same
This is not me
You see?
Believe
I'm better than this
Don't leave me so cold
I'm buried beneath the stones
I just want to hold on
And know I'm worth your love
Enough
I don't think
There's such a thing
It's my fault now
Having caught a sickness in my bones
How it pains to leave you here
With the kids on your own
Just don't let me go
Help me see myself
Cause I can no longer tell
Looking out from the inside
Of the bottom of a well
It's hell
I yell
But no one hears before I disappear
Whisper in my ear
Give me something to echo
In my unknown future's ear
My dear
The end
Comes near
I'm here
But not much longer.

Re: My Favorite Sad Songs (and Yours)

People can theorycraft all they want about Tool and their songs and meanings, and there are actually a couple different theories about what 10,000 Days means, but it matches up pretty well with the length of time the lead singer's mother had a stroke which left her partially paralyzed and the time of her death (27-28 years).

The problem with watching Tool songs with lyrics is that all the idiot fans that post them think they're super smart and that they post 'meaningful images' to go with the music and it's super distracting and lame. Here is the best one I could find for this set of songs that has lyrics (sound quality might be higher in another video but this is good enough for this thread I think):

I literally cry every time that I actually sit down and listen to it by myself

Re: My Favorite Sad Songs (and Yours)

Jenkins has anger and ego...3eb's lyrics aren't as good as their sound. Motorcycle Driveby takes that on at full speed. I personally think it's a song of solitude and happiness, the catalyst isn't Stephen, but the girl whose couch he slept on. She moved on from him, while his conceited ass was discovering this in real time. The second line of the song "...I don't know what I'm doing in this city." is brutally sincere. Ultimately the at-times jazzed up lyrics ARE sincere to the bone, making the band worth remembering.

This song and "Losing a Whole Year" didn't mean anything to me when they came out. I recently found these songs again now that I've been hit by life a few times, and they're pretty spot on for me personally. I think daily "why am I living here?". I always tell people "eh, there was a girl involved."
