Here are the songs that were certainly on the order of sad/ melancholy. Obviously, they had so much more anger or enthusiasm than the numbered ones that they floated on the proverbial pool of tears. Nevertheless, I was determined to root out the rock and roll songs that sank to the bottom of despair and discouragement. Apparently, there is a lot of gloomy frustration and heartbreak amongst us.
Real life is why we have so many tortured souls who seek out artistic ways to deal with and work out their issues. Thank heaven for music.
Here are a group of songs with a heavy touch of sadness. They are so good, and thankfully still enjoyable, without kicking up any trauma or ripping off any scabs of pain during the performance.
I share them with you below. The next installment will be the #1 saddest of all. Promise.
