Corny as it may sound but hopeless romantics like us would always resort to lonely songs that emphasize our grief and that would magnify the bitter gourds out of our abandoned hearts.
Even bearded, mustached, beer bellied men like I get lonely sometimes and would almost cry to songs that my feelings could relate to.
Here are the songs that I pop on the proverbial CD player in case my heart refuses to beat due to bitterness:
SA WAKAS (album) by Sugarfree
Sugarfree’s debut album is my favorite OPM album of all time. I mean, Ebe Dancel’s song writing is Godly. Also, the melody lines and arrangement of songs are insanely beautiful.
My favorite singles in this favorite album of mine are:
Fade Away, Mundong Malungkot and Insomya.
It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over by Lenny Kravitz
So many tears i’ve cried
So much pain inside,
But baby it ain’t over ’til it’s over
So many years we’ve tried
To keep our love alive,
But baby it ain’t over ’till it’s over
This is a song I dedicate to the one I truly love but who couldn’t love me back (chos!). His other song, “Again”, is also a favorite of mine.
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath by Black Sabbath
“Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Nothing more to do
Living just for dying
Dying just for you”
Though technically it’s not a love song, in case you live under a rock, Black Sabbath is one of the pioneers of Heavy Metal. But the line that goes “living just for dying, dying just for you” could readily fit any given WestLife ditty.
All I Want is You Today, Ikaw Nga, Half Crazy; I mean, I could still name a number of songs by Soutborder and realize how bittersweet our days could be. Their songs may not be that macho, but still, if you have the balls to absorb the lyrics then there’s nothing wrong with it.
There goes my list. And I know yours may not be the same as mine. But hey! I think you’d agree with me that songs are very effective meds when our hearts encounter complications.
Love well everyone! Or not.
