    Since Paperback Rocker mentioned Ryan Adams, I wanted to post my personal favorite song of his. It's another song which is a great example of the kind of sadness I love. This song has gotten me through some tough times...



    Fun Fact: Johnny Depp plays the guitar solo on the recording.

    For me personally, that song doesn't make me feel any sadness but it I liked it!

    I really, really enjoyed this one. Very nice. Thank you.

    Research Nick Drake’s story to up the sadness factor.

    If you ever want to feel sad, read the biography of this band, and listen to this song.

    This is the saddest song/performance given the context I’ve ever heard hands down. Specifically the line “I gotta go, it’s been a pleasure doing business with you.” Tragically Hip’s last show and I think the second last song knowing Gord Downie the lead singer had terminal brain cancer. The whole concert was broadcast live up here on the CBC.

    Sometimes
    why me Lord: Kristofferson
    Other times
    Old and wise: Alan Parsons project

    But two describe the lonely days, hours N weeks on the road, racing...
    Not all that glamorous...

    My country side always wins out, but George Jones with "He stopped Loving Her Today" has to be on this list! (No, I don't know how to link the song).

    Nice. I always enjoy listening to an original song!

    I will!

    I read up a little about Gord Downie. Those circumstances definitely made that show much sadder. Always sad to hear about someone who falls to cancer...
