After break-ups, loss or any genuine reason to lose your shit, these songs are the soundtrack to our griefing, self-nurturing or just a flat out excuse to cry. A late night drive home and the song you tie to a bad period of my life comes on your phone or iPod (yes, have sad music on your devices, keep your options open) yet you don’t cry, it’s oddly refreshing to hear the tune that could make one ball in... The singer/songwriter gets you, or just gets close enough to match your morosity. They may hurt, cut deep or rehash the wounds of old, but at the end of it there is a cathartic feeling after listening to a musician’s woes, and, holy fuck, do musicians have woes. We may not offer much in the way of making you feel better, but we can provide 20 great sad songs written from the 1960s to now to help you out, or make you worse. Elliott Smith – Waltz #2. A list of sad songs is guaranteed to play host to at least one Elliott Smith tune, but rather than taking advantage of his earlier, miserable anti-folk, I’ve opted to showcase one of his most gorgeous studio efforts. “Waltz #2” (XO) boasts Smith’s careful arrangement of guitars, strings and pianos, and while his numerous verses may ramble, they’re filled with heart wrenching lines that, while not directly depressing, find sadness in their deadpan observations. ” The song’s sorrows are held in Smith’s frail voice and the apparent emptiness of the characters.
Bellringing isn’t normally a pastime that you associated with the younger generation – but as far as 13-year-old Euan Gilfillan is concerned, campanology is cool. The Year 8 pupil at the town’s Priory School first got involved with the ringers at the landmark Grade I listed building just over a year ago. And he’d made sufficient progress as New Year’s Eve neared that he was invited to be part of the team picked to sound out the celebration peal at the start of 2015 on Wednesday night last week. My parents were there to hear the bells chime to welcome the New Year. Experienced ringer Anna Crawley, who has been involved for 33 years, said: “It is lovely to have a young, committed and engaged individual to ring with us. ”. Keen-eyed Euan was tasked with keeping an eye on an atomic clock, the most accurate... He then stepped up to ring the number 8 bell, which dates from 1762 and sounds the note of B. Anna said: “It is quite an emotional experience. “We muffle the bells to begin, to say goodbye to the previous year, and then ring at full volume to welcome the New Year. The St Mary’s bells have been sounding out for hundreds of years, but were revamped and rehung in 2012. Tower captain David Kemp, who has 40 years of experience, says new members are always welcome. david@live.
