Does the closing bell on Wall Street last Thursday classify as a sad song?

Life has turned very sad for me and DH. Lost some rescue kittens. Yeah, I know, not people, but damn we loved them. Lost little furry souls. Faces looking at me. Sh!t. Hurts.

Reviving an old thread. I was listening to several things on Youtube this morning and came across this old and very sad song by the incomparable Neil Young. Seems even more relevant today with all the news about drug deaths lately:

This one does it for me:



"How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
And come home in the evening and have nothing to say."



I really like the Susan Tedeschi version too.

Oh my gosh!! I cried REAL HEARTBROKEN TEENAGE TEARS over that song when it first came out. Honkin' snortin, nose runnin', coughing tears. It was so sad.

The perspective of an additional 54 years has helped me to cope with it...

Funny how context matters. The first time I heard St James Infirmary Blues was on SNL - one of their first shows. Lily Tomlin sang, Howard Shore was bandleader and the entire band wore old style nurse outfits. A young Paul Shaffer was at the piano, wearing his classic weird glasses. So, a sad song, but it brings back a great memory and makes me smile. https://vimeo.com/154846663

This one always brings a few tears to me eyes, as it reminds me so much of my childhood and of the brevity of life.
