    "Here Today," Paul McCartney, 1981. Macca wrote this song a few months after the shocking death of his friend and Beatles collaborator John Lennon. It was Paul's tribute to John. Pretty heavy stuff if you're a Beatles fan.

    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.
    Maybe the chorus already has its catch on you

    I like a few of Kelly's songs too, because of her strong expressive vocals.

    I really like Phil Chang 張宇 - 曲終人散. This song is especially good if you listen to it after you attended your ex-gf's wedding or the girl that you like.

    詞:十一郎  曲:張宇 

    妳讓他用戒指把妳套上的時候
    我察覺到妳臉上複雜的笑容
    那原本該是我 付予妳的承諾
    現在我只能隱身熱鬧中
    我跟著所有人向妳祝賀的時後
    只有妳知道我多喝了幾杯酒
    我不能再看妳 多一眼都是痛
    即使知道暗地裡妳又回頭

    我終於知道曲終人散的寂寞 只有傷心人才有
    你最後一身紅殘留在我眼中 我沒有再依戀的藉口
    原來這就是曲終人散的寂寞 我還想等妳什麼
    妳緊緊拉住我衣袖 又放開讓我走
    這一次跟我徹底分手

    我跟著所有人向妳祝賀的時後
    只有妳知道我多喝了幾杯酒
    我不能再看妳 多一眼都是痛
    即使知道暗地裡妳又回頭

    我終於知道曲終人散的寂寞 只有傷心人才有
    你最後一身紅殘留在我眼中 我沒有再依戀的藉口
    原來這就是曲終人散的寂寞 我還想等妳什麼
    妳緊緊拉住我衣袖 又放開讓我走
    這一次跟我徹底分手

    Beirut - Cliquot

    A plague in the workhouse, a plague on the poor
    Now I'll beat on my drum 'til I'm dead
    Yesterday, a fever, tomorrow, St. Peter
    I'll beat on my drum until then.

    But what melody will lead my lover from his bed?
    What melody will see him in my arms again?

    Set fire to foundation and burn out the station
    You'll never get nothing of mine
    The pane of my window will flicker and billow
    I won't leave a stitching behind

    But what melody will lead my lover from his bed?
    What melody will see him in my arms again?

    I'll sing of the walls of the well and the house at the top of the hill
    I'll sing of the bottles of wine that we left on our old windowsill
    I'll sing of the years you will spend getting sadder and older
    Oh love... and the cold, the oncoming cold.
    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

    This is an instrumental piece, but it's definitely one of the saddest I know.
    Maybe you've heard about Börn náttúrunnar (aka Children of Nature) - an Icelandic road movie about two old-timers who decide to run away from the home for seniors where they were supposed to live out the rest of their days - and they head for the place where they've grown up.
    The whole soundtrack is fabulous - because Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson is a friggin' genius. But for me, Ars Moriendi stands out.
    ...as far as I'm concerned, music can't get much sadder than that.
