Songs to blub to
May 29, 2004, 10:08
After a good night out and the copulsory musicfest at home-can,dom, gila,haze, golden earring -
can you play this ? asked the g/f and hummed [can you slur a hum] a slightly imperfect version of one of her faves.
Midnite Cowboy it was, by faith no more. Damn near made me blub!!! So then played Atlantis by Donovan, another sad one. Today couldn't help but think [or try to] that those are the only two songs I have that are truly sad little mothers..........

...most of ND's 'Five Leaves Left' lifts my heart to dewy eyed moments. The strings alone are just all too beautiful...

"There is a Light That Never Goes Out" by the Smiths is guaranteed to get the hankies out in the Cat Pod.

Also, "Summer Breeze" by the Isley Brothers. Tears not through sadness, but pure, utter, heart quaking, vein bubbling- joy. Tears indeed! Cos I luvs it so!

"Living Without You" by Randy Newman from his first album just makes my heart ache with self pity. Especially the way he sounds like he might burst out crying. I also think that song from Skip Spence's Oar that goes "Weighted down by possessions..." can't remember title, makes me wanna weep, especially the line "If you can't find your woman, don't take another's wife".

That song was a favorite of my mother's(!) Except she mainly liked the Neil Diamond version.

Nothing cheers me up like a truly sad song. Hammill's 'This Side Of The Looking Glass', Al Stewart's 'Ballad Of Mary Foster' and Dylan's 'If You See Her, Say Hello' come immediately to mind.

All of the songs Lou Barlow wrote on Sebadoh's "Bubble & Scrape" LP are immensely sad.

He had just broken up with (what I think might have been his first ever serious) girlfriend (and he's got a reputation as emotionally unstable in the first place), so he's whining and ranting and tearfully wanking himself to sleep all alone, no holds barred going through all the stages of pain & grief & separation. Remarkable spleen-venting songwriting.

Roads by Portishead, never really worked out what it is about, but Beth Gibbon's performance always puts a lump in my throat, heartfelt stuff and beautiful
