    Loads and loads of Nick Cave's songs. Quite a handful by Deine Lakaien. Sabrina by Einstürzende Neubauten. A whole bunch of folk/traditional songs from all over the globe... Space Oddity by Bowie...
    And so on...
    别想把黑暗放在我的面前
    太阳已经生长在我心底
    不再有封闭的畏惧
    奔腾的灵魂飞上天际
    太阳 我在这里

    Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton - This song always reminds me of my 1st love (which was ages ago).

    Soledad - Westlife (Soledad means Loneliness).

    I agree. This is my current theme for my life at work, which the first 25-35 seconds of the song will also be used for my portfolio.


    Love, me - Colin Reyes (The lyrics took its toll on me)

    Goodbye - Air Supply

    Hold Me Now - Johnny Logan

    The Long Goodbye - Ronan Keating

    Do I make you proud? - Taylor Hicks (This song feels like a belated tune for me to ask a late someone. Someone whom I owe my gratitude towards. The first few lines, has identified me.)

    當我知道你們相愛 - Aaron Kwok

    感情的事 - Aaron Kwok

    Eternity - Robbie Williams

    That Thing You Do -The Wonders (This may not be a slow song, but the lyrics brings that kind of sore which beings me some memories.)

    想你想的好孤寂 - Tai Zheng Xiao (this tune has a meaning for me. Not sure if anyone remembers this guy?)

    and definitely this one: 察肩而過 - 蘇有朋

    SHSS, I still remember you mentioned to me about this song in the other thread. I find the lyrics very sorrowful. I hope you ain't feeling this way now.

    "Suteki da ne" (Isn't it beautiful) - sung by Rikki (Final Fantasy X theme song).

    I love this song and all other versions too: instumental, orchestra and piano.

    Have you learned to love one another?

    I have a lot.

    But I just discovered this one:
    The Piass - Dead By Christmas.
    Because I'm somewhere in between,
    My love and my agony.

    Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

    I never completely understood this song before until I watched the music video of the song. I read some of the comments and it seems to be an autobiographical song about Kelly's past. When Kelly goes to the mirror and it flashes back. That's herself and her past self as a little girl. Her parents' marriage fell apart and they divorced. It's kind of poetic in a sense that her present self is holding hands with her past self in remembering the past. It's a sad song to me, but the mv's ending presents hope.

    Heh. Before I understood this song, there was always something about it that attracted me.

    The song is filled with angst, sadness, and pain of divorce, child neglect, daughter reliving mother's bad life. I like the piano opening.

    Here's another interpretation of the song that depicts more of DV(Domestic Violence): Duet with Reba and Kelly - Because of You
