Songs that Sorrow Sings

I will make a brief interruption in the way this blog has traditionally presented its posts by dedicating this one not to only one song but to various songs. These songs are songs I have realized I always seem to end up singing no matter what (but usually under melancoholic circumstances). I want to note how when there's a song that really touches you there are certain words that you wait for more than others and that one gives a special emphasis to when singing them. These are not, of course, necessarily the songs I like the most nor the ones that are necessarily most significative in my life; they just happen to be songs that are constantly played and replayed when booze has ignited passionate remembrance. So here you are, in no particular order, just a bit from my own personal, endless playlist of afterhour drunken classics, to you, dear and loyal reader.

"don't carry the world upon your shoulders"

"but all the things that you've seen
will slowly fade away"

"it's such a shame for us to part"

"I'm tired of the song that sorrow sings"

"and if a double-decker bus
crashes into us
to die by your side
it's such a heavenly way to die"

"...if I thought that you would stay..."

"...and the whores like a choir
go 'Uh!'"

Creo que en lo personal (y algunos no me dejaran mentir) "There's a light..." es como onligatoria para esos momentos y un poco también "Boys don't cry". Buen post.
