30 Day Song Challange: Lost, Unrequited, and Bittersweet.

Day 04 – A song that reminds you of something sad.

I have three songs for this one.

This first one is Vittorio E by Spoon.  It’s actually quite a beautiful song if you ask me, however, It came on during the ride back from my ex husband’s funeral.  Driving through those western Pennsylvanian Hills, and remembering all the places he took and shared with me back where he grew up. . . the fact that we grew apart.. . the fact that we lost each other. . . the fact that he lost himself…..

The second song is Another Day by This Mortal Coil.

Tis a sad song about missed opportunities and remembrance of what could have been.  Perhaps more courage was needed. . . Perhaps the other party wasn’t interested.  Who knows.  Love’s a Fist.  But Liz Frasier’s voice is so so beautiful. 

 

and the last one, Pink Bullets by the Shins.  To be gotten by someone, and then to have that end because of circumstances.  Breaks my heart.  This song is so bittersweet.

 

I have lots of songs that make me sad.  We’ll just stick with these.
