Default Re: Top 10 sad songs

Totally with you on Accidentally Like a Martyr Beth, also Desperados under the Eaves by the same, though it has something of a triumphantally desperate ring rather than just sadness.

I always well up over Anchorage by Michelle Shocked, all about two friends who have lost touch for years. Hell even the thought of it now - I'm such a softy.

There are many more, though I can't bring them to mind now cos I'm all thinking about Anchorage. sigh.
