About Sad Songs That Make You Cry

The odd thing about sad songs is that they can be happy songs as well. That song that meant everything good with the old girlfriend can make you cry with the opening notes today.
Sometimes that sad song can indicate an upcoming hope, or desire to to climb out of that sad situation. I've always believed that without the sad stuff, we'd never appreciate the good stuff.

Everything ever created by man has been made so by some driven need he didn't have.
Or, to impress a girl.

It's always about something that we don't have, and have to work to achieve. Sad songs can be the stuff that fuel our dreams to become reality.
