This is probably the saddest song on my iPod. Certainly now that Ive deleted all the Radiohead songs. Honourary mention to Richard Manuel's compositions for the band notably whispering pines. I don't think any of them are truly sad though. If they were I wouldn't listen to them.
original by Badfinger, written by members Tom Evans/Pete Ham. I used to work with Tom's brother Dave. Tom tragically died (suicide) in 1983 just after an argument about the royalties of Without You......
This version of Honey is just as good as Bobby Goldboro.
There's a documentary about "Orion The man Who Would Be King", well worth a view and quite sad. Just noticed this doco is on BBC iplayer Storyville
