Sad Songs Blogfest
What's wrong with me anyway. Diane at Spunk on a Stick is doing this Sad Songs Blogfest and here I'm doing it on a fourth blog. Somebody needs to call Bloggers Anonymous.
I'll tell you what the problem is here. I thought of too many sad songs. I stuck with my A to Z themes on the other blogs so on this one I'll go with some popular sad songs.
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry --- This version by B.J. Thomas was the first I ever heard of this song. It was all over the radio in the summer of 1966 when I first moved to Tennessee. It's such a tearjerker. B.J.'s version is still my favorite.
End of the World -- Classic teenage angst by Skeeter Davis.
Laurie (Strange Things Happen) -- A spooky sad song by Dickey Lee. A strange ghost story put to song.
Sounds of Silence -- I wore out this 45 record when the song first came out and then later got the album. When I hear this song I picture Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate. One of the best songs ever.
You'll See I used to hear this song frequently in the warehouse that I managed. A young lady who worked there would often have it playing and it sounded so ethereally beautiful but I had no idea who it was singing it. I am a big fan of Madonna's music especially when I found out she sang this song.
Crying -- The original artist Roy Orbison is joined here by k.d. lang.
And that's where I'll leave it. See more at Spunk on a Stick.
Be here on Sunday as this blog begins day one of the incredible Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.
