Might have to pull out my Patti Page greatest hits tonight. Great stuff. Great thread.
This was a great movie as was it a great song ... Ahhh the memories
Recorded by Miss Patti Page in 1965 after the 1964 movie by the same name.
see you a patti page, raise you one frankie laine
A tribute to Frankie Laine, One of my favourite singers.
Continuing in the tradition of truly great sad songs
The Chi-lites "Have you seen her" original song
Love some cheatin' and cryin' songs.
"Haven't You Heard" George Strait's "Something Special" album?
This song was written by Red Lane and Wayne Kemp. It was never released.
I do not own this song - it belongs to George Strait and MCA Recording.
George Strait-Entertainer of a Lifetime
Buck Owens had a great crying song
Buck Owens & His Buckaroos - Crying Time From: Buck Owens Ranch Show (march 15 1966)
Anyone who has lived through this will feel the emotion ... I well up with tears every time I hear this song.
Tammy Wynette performs "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" live in 1973 in Cypress Park, FL
Two great ones there. " together, again" by buck is supposed to be a happy song, but always come across as a sad one to me.
True, it is supposed to be a happy song but the tempo and the wailing of the steel guitar lend itself to a sadder interpretation.
Buck Owens Ranch Show
It was a very sad day when we lost Conway Twitty - Hello Darling to me was always his signature song. This version sung to Loretta Lynn will always stand out as a true classic.
Great clip of harold. God bless utube or ida never seen that version. Thats my job would fit the sad song thread, but i cant listen to that one with dry eyes. hate ii never got to see conway perform live.
my brother is in icu in lexington hospital. been there since early this past week. its not looking good for tommy. i am going to drive over in a little bit. it may be the last time i see him alive
perhaps the worlds greatest gamecock fan...led me into the path of gamecockism, among other things. i long thank the heavens my brother decided to go to usc rather than clemson...we lived on a farm & he was big snot in the future farmers of america, went to kansas city in high school on some national convention, but he had had more than enough of rural life
thus i likely became a gamecock not a tater.
i am going to think of many sad things so this thread is befitting my mood. he is 70. lived a hard life. played harder than most, his body now is about to give out on him, he has little left to fight for, not when you are in deep pain & things dont seem to be getting any better
so in the theme. 10cc a underappreciated band imho recorded this & it seems fitting to me & my bro....old wild men waiting for a miracle
Poignant ballad with great lyrics and guitar solo with the unique gizmo-guitar. Stereo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9E9p7i7mhEfmt=18
So sorry to hear of your brother's failing condition ... prayers are sent for him and for you and your family as well.
That we try to rationalize with cliches such as he's going to a better place does little to lessen the pain or the sadness you must be feeling. May you find solace and rejoice in all the good which he has brought and the happiness which he has shared.
May the arms of your God embrace you and your family and provide you comfort in your time of need.
Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
Sorry hear that about yiur brother. Prayers sent to you and him.
thanks. he is out of icu
in the theme of sad songs....for those who have lost a spouse to a mysterious disease'
well she was kind of dumb and kind of smart...this song makes me sad & also want to beat the crap out of bobby goldsfreakinboro
Still a loved song over 40 years later with its unforgettable orchestration and tragic lyrics
George was always known to be able to pour out a melancholy from time to time.
All of the of the great luminaries in the country community on occasion put forth a musical ode to angst. But this will forever be a classic song of anguish.
Love the possum. Once heard an artist say that "if everyone could sing the way they wanted to, then they would all sound like George Jones."
Sister won't listen to Jones because of how depressing his music is.
this sad/broken heart song was hot on the charts during november 1958 i was ten years of age
i was rebelling against country music then but this one was good even for me back then
The song some believed to be Elvis, was written between sets by Harold Jenkins (aka Conway Twitty) and drummer Jack Nance when they were in Hamilton, Ontario...
1959 sad song that hit the charts i was 11 not much different that those dorky kids in this video
other than i was a redneck rube on a dirt farm who could not dance could not sing
PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads between multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948...
One of the greates songs of all time. Conway nails it, too.
this burl ives song was in the top 100 for 1962
Being that I am a man of constant sorrow, it seems only fitting that the song of the same name get tossed into the mix.
