Melodious Suicide

I know the title was a bit troubling but that’s all my mind came up with. I am at home currently and you all know you get VIP treatment for first few days and then its all back to square one kind. Bored of TV and its ‘Ratan ka rishta’ kind of reality swayamvars and UTV bindass dung balls!

So I took up a task of going through my entire music collection and list out some songs which will make you teary eyed and for those who are probable suiciders, this might just act like a catalyst.

Rank 1- HURT by Johnny Cash –It has very touching lines and the dark melody plus the deep baritone of this legendary singer might just take you to the dark sides of life which you will easily relate to.
                    Fav lines- what have I become?
                                     my sweetest friend
                                     everyone I know
                                     goes away in the end
                                     and you could have it all
                                     my empire of dirt

Rank 2- Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley- A song for the loved and lost. The lines are so touching and still beautiful. It’s a story beautifully told.
                     Fav Lines-She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
                                       She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
                                       We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
                                        But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
                                        Until the night
                                        He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger

Rank 3- Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton- This song was written and sung by him following the death of his four-year-old son who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother's friend. So you can imagine the pain in this song.
                      Fav lines- Would you know my name
                                        If I saw you in heaven
                                        Will it be the same
                                        If I saw you in heaven
                                        I must be strong, and carry on
                                        Cause I know I don't belong
                                        Here in heaven

Rank 4- And so it goes by Billy Joel- You can relate to this song in so many different ways. A true classic sung by an epic artist. About love lost and how the heart collects those broken pieces and loves again.
                           Fav Lines- And every time I've held a rose
                                             It seems I only felt the thorns
                                             And so it goes, and so it goes
                                             And so will you soon I suppose

Rank 5- Dance with my father by Luther Vandross- As the title suggests, the song is about a little kid who wants his father back from God and about the pain his mother is going through. No one can sing this the way Luther Vandross has. I bet that this one will make you weep. One of my favourites
                            Fav Lines- When I and my mother would disagree
                                               To get my way I would run from her to him
                                               He’d make me laugh just to comfort me,
                                               Then finally make me do just what my mama said
