every fucking time
(not a proper vid but best audio i could find)
He looks so frail Saw him at Royal Albert Hall in '97 - so awesome.
there's levi stubbs tears which i can alternately manage/not manage, but this taps into teenage heartbreak
Adult heartbreak in my case.
Speaking strictly for me we both could have died then and there
Bloody Billy Bragg again (but a different song) and yep, heartbreak time. I just cried listening to this before I posted it, dammit.
ah fuck he does (lost) love songs like no-one else /
Because it's so bad?

Abba - I Have A Dream

There is no song that will always make me cry, and I'm in no mood for tears this evening, but this is always emotionally haunting.
Same one as ever....breaks my fucking heart....
This one pretty much sums up every morning from when turned 17 to not long before I turned 23. Not the best time in my life by a long shot.
And this one pretty much encapsulates the life of a full-time drunk as far as I'm concerned:
we listened to this a lot a few weeks before he died
he actually said the words 'I'd like this played at my funeral'
so we did
seven and a bit years ago, before i joined urban, and was struggling with loneliness in a pretty crushing way, this song coming on my car stereo one morning made me break down in such heart-destroying tears that I had to pull over to the side of the road, and later call in sick to work. Because, you see - not only was I sad like her, but I didn't have a friend who loved me like Jake. :/ anyway, now it makes me sad for me then. I want to give me a big old hug.
this one had been around for a few months, and then i was at a festival with my sister, and this came on her shuffle one night. I was singing along (yeah, alright), and she was like "you know what this song is about, don't you?" and made me listen to the lyrics from the start again. after a minute or so i was in floods, and now it happens every time. crying now, ffs and i don't even LIKE Athlete. Bloody god-bothering-dad-rock-landfill-indie.
ahh shit. I can't even go there with my dad's funeral songs. nearly four years ago and still far far too raw. i'm such a sap.
I am listening to this on the radio now.
