... If I was so forced to go to church, I would be muttering the words, "There is no goddess but The Voice, and Esther is Her name", instead of the usual mumbo-jumbo. :pray:
May The Voice be with you!

I've just noticed the comments under the YouTube link for Oh Waly Waly. Lamentable slanging match between two camps. :(
It was caused by a needless derogatory remark about Joan Baez, which lead to a load of nonsense from a Baez fan about "echoes" in revenge. :nono:

Try listening to the above performance of Oh Waly, Waly when your tense/stressed out. You may find release. It's not entertainment, it's therapy! (At least for me.)

Bright eyes wrote:
Poison Oak

Poison oak, some boyhood bravery
When a telephone was a tin can on a string
And I fell asleep with you still talking to me
You said you weren't afraid to die

In polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
Were you made ashamed, why'd you lock them in a drawer?
I don't think that I ever loved you more

Then when you turned away
When you slammed the door
When you stole the car
And drove towards Mexico
And you wrote bad checks
Just to fill your arm
I was young enough, I still believed in war

Well, let the poets cry themselves to sleep
And all their tearful words will turn back into steam

But me I'm a single cell
On a serpents tongue
There's a muddy field where a garden was
And I'm glad you got away
But I'm still stuck out here
My clothes are soaking wet
From your brother's tears

And I never thought this life was possible
You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for

The end of paralysis
I was a statuette
Now I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
And when I press the keys
It all gets reversed
The sound of loneliness makes me happier


It's a song about Conor's cousin who committed suicide having trouble dealing with his sexual/gender identity. It always gets me...

    If you could see me now,
    you'd know how blue I've been
    One look is all you'd need
    to see the mood I'm in.
    Perhaps then you'd realize
    I'm still in love with you.

    If you could see me now,
    you'd find me being brave
    And trying awfully hard
    to make my tears behave
    But that's quite impossible,
    I'm still in love with you.

    You'll happen my way
    on some mem'rable day
    And the month will be May for a while.
    I'll try to smile but can I play the part
    Without my heart behind the smile?

    The way I feel for you,
    I never could disguise
    The look of love is written,
    plainly in my eyes.
    I think you'd be mine again
    if you could see me now.

    Tadd Dameron, Bill Cunliffe, Holly Hofmann

"Every Night" by you-know-who. Always makes me "mournful cry".

I feel rather out of place in this topic in regards to songs that I feel are "Sad" :/.
A lot of these songs feature very odd vocals, old music in general or are the generic widely known songs... I live by my music, it helps me portray every emotion I have, from happy, sad, hyper, tired or just feel the need to think as well as other things. I could list all of my emotional music but we'd be here all year long so instead I've linked a video of mine that I created a while back listing my (then) Top 20 most personal emotional songs. The video lasts about 20 minutes but I reckon I can carry a guarantee that you listeners will find something that meets your taste. *(Many genre's featured)*
I personally would have no idea how to cope in my life without these songs and the "Emotional" sector in general. They certainly help me cry, reflect, and ponder. Maybe all in a negative way but it's better then me taking it out on people or worse. I'd feel isolated without my music and certainly without the 2 artist(s) that feature as #2 and #1 (Both songs sung by #1 being songs I hold closest to my heart)

**Warning; Song #20 (First song) features swearing, this is the only song to do so, I apologize in advance for those who finds it to their dislike**

What makes "Unter deinen weissen sternen" especially sad is that it is one of the actual songs performed by the doomed jews of the Vilnius(Vilna), Lithuania ghetto in the early '40s and which was competely destoyed by the Nazis during WW2. All of the original musicians and actors died as a result of the ghetto, either by starvation or disease, if not execution, along with all the other people trapped there. Their hopes of being rescued by the allies did not come to anything.
I am not jewish, but that is very sad. :(

No love for the classics I see.



Came out last week. Steve Lee would've done it better, but still good. Not that anyone even knows what I'm talking about.
