Sad Songs Blogfest, the actual songs post...


I have chosen my songs for the Sad Songs blog list and listed them below. I have added a few lines from the song as some of them are not familiar to many people at all. The first six or seven are related to kids or dads. The last few are loss, death and leaving. Sound of Silence seems to be a good bridge between the kid/dad songs and the others as it always reminds me of the alienation of youth because I associate it with The Graduate, though the song itself is not really about kids or dads.

My favorite sad song is the last one on the list. I think I have this one in about ten different versions.

 I am going to call some of these artists out on Facebook today to see if any of them will come by and comment. If you wrote or performed one of these songs, please comment! Thank you for the great lyrics.
Thank you to Diane at Spunk on a Stick for hosting this Blog hop. If you want to see what others came up with head to her blog and follow the links she has there from  Monday's post.

     Hold My Hand
     Ric Alba
I thought I heard a baby cry
It was the man next door
I thought I heard somebody say
Hey, big boys don’t cry anymore


     America
     Bill Mallonee and the Vigilantes of Love
Brought a new friend home to watch TV
To help you deal with the anxiety
She measured out her love in ounces

     Tears in Heaven
     Eric Clapton
Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

     The Rub of Love
     Chagal Guevara
Every other week on visiting day
I get tolerated by his new wife.
I swear if he ever really held me
They'd have to pry me off with the 
Jaws of Life.

Old Man Look at My Life
Neil Young
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.
I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.


     Hurt
     Trent Reznor, but as performed by
     Johnny Cash
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt


     Youth of the Nation
     P.O.D.
I guess that's the way the story goes
Will it ever make sense
Somebody's got to know
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more to everything
I thought exists 

     The Sound of Silence
     Simon and Garfunkel
 And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"


     Don’t This Way
     The 77’s
Don't Look This Way, Closed Eyes, Unmoving Lips
Don't Feel This Way, Cold Hands and Fingertips

     Don’t Cry
     Adam Again
Hey, ho
Its time to go
Time to say,
Say good-bye


     Ain’t No Sunshine
     Bill Withers
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
Wonder if she’s gone to stay
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
This house just ain’t no home
Anytime she goes away.

nice list, ron..

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

I'm usually hard to stump, but I'm going to have to look some of these up! Love Tears In Heaven.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful list, though some I didn't know. Tears in Heaven is an excellent example of a sad song and of course The one I had The sound of Silence.

Yvonne.

Arlee Bird said...

We had a couple of matches. "Don't Cry" is such a achingly sad sounding song. "Hurt" is a great choice. There were a few there that didn't ring a bell but I might recognize them if I heard them. Great list!

By the way, are you familiar with Adam Again's version of "Ain't No Sunshine" off of one of their first albums--probably my favorite version.

Nice song choices

M Pax said...

I love that Bill Withers song. First mention I've seen of it today. Great choices!

J.L. Campbell said...

Dunno how I forgot Ain't No Sunshine. Lovely song. I can just play it again and again. Clapton has been very popular today.

Maryann Miller said...

Hi, Ron. I have not performed or written the songs, but have played and sang, "The Sound of Silence" and "Ain't No Sunshine." Both great songs.

I'm seeing Sound of Silence and Hurt on many lists and feeling a bit left out! Great list!

Ron Easton for Dads UnLimited said...

Thanks eveeryone for xommenting. I loved the diversity of everyone's lists. I had a few comments on Facebook from Ric Alba, Bill Mallonee and Greg Lawless from Adam Again, apparently they came over here, but didn't comment here. That was fun.

One common causes of penis pain are as follows:Allergies- an allergic reaction to something the fact that the penis has come into contact with. This will probably include soaps, detergents, creams, condoms, latex, fabrics and other materials;
