Songs that emotionally cut you

Janis Ian - At Seventeen .......................just brilliant. I purposely posted this version that is from Oct 2020. She is 69 on this video and her voice is still amazing. Saw her about 6 years ago and she was fantastic.

I had never heard of this song until November last year when I was browsing YouTube. The sentiments brought so many memories back of my late wife that I burst into tears. It wasn't until later that I noticed the date and it was actually the 4th anniversary of here funeral. It will kill me every time I hear it now.

VanWyck - Your Favorite Tune

The Verve ‘The drugs don’t work’

I defy anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer to tell me that’s not about chemotherapy
“the drugs don’t work, they just make you worse, but I know I’ll see your face again”
”when heaven calls I’m coming too”
You've hit the nail on the head with that one. Brings back scenes of my dieing Mam every time I hear it 😔
