Saddest Song Ever?

Well, I figured I made everybody wait long enough to hear my blog worthy words of wisdom. What a lucky day for everyone involved. I know that my mere presence is probably enough, but i'm going to jump right in with a question- what do you think is the saddest song ever written. My vote goes to Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle." This one always gets me. Every time I hear I vow to be a better father, which was especially creepy before Hannah was born.

FL - My answer is especially for you:

Bette Midler's "The Rose."

Makes me teary just thinking about it.

JOSH?!? Is that YOU?!?

('Bout TIME, mutha-fucka!)

Saddest song ever? Oh, GOTTA be "75 Septembers" by Cheryl Wheeler.

Lately by Stevie Wonder....the line about how he stares in the mirror picking himself apart gets me everytime.

I need to listen to the Animanics "Nifty Fifty" just to cheer myself up......

Barber's Adagio for Strings usually gets a tear or 2 from me- no words necessary!

Oh, if we're going classical, I have to go with Beethoven's 9th symphony. I don't know what it is, but I'm overwhelmed everytime.

For regular ol' songs, I think I could pick anything from Ani DiFranco's Dilate album.
