Joan The Saddest Song of All (238* d) RE: The Saddest Song of All 08 Dec 99

I've read every last post in this thread, and started wondering what it is about some songs that make them so moving and rip-your-heart-out sad. Maybe partings? Leaving home and loved ones not knowing if you'll ever see them again? Separation by death?

Then some songs are sad by special associations...for me it's Coltman's "Lonesome Robin" and "Who Will Sing for Me."

Does asking "why" make this a whole 'nother thread? j
