You were as kind as you could be
And even though you’re gone
You still mean the world to me

09. U2 – With or Without You


In this track, Bono depicts a tormented relationship that he can’t get away. The verse can be deciphered numerous ways; Bono disclosed that he needed to compose an affection melody that managed main problems.

Moment you’ll tear up:

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I’ll wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait, without you
With or without you


08. Bob Dylan – Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door


Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan is probably the best soundtrack of our lives. The famous song has been covered by innumerable performers, including Eric Clapton, GN’R, Roger Waters and numerous contemporary artists.

Booker T. Jones has told the story of playing bass on this famed track, saying,

He [Dylan] lived over in Paradise Cove and I lived on Winding Way in Malibu. I bought Lana Turner’s old house and I’m not sure where he lived, but he had a house just across the road there and he would come over and pick up my guitar and work on songs and stuff. They were working on the movie with Jason Robards late one night, and for some reason [Dylan] just called me up and asked me to come over to the studio and to play on the song, and I played bass on it

Booker T. Jones

Moment you’ll tear up:

Mama, put my guns in the ground (Ooh)
I can’t shoot them anymore (Ooh)
That cold black cloud is comin’ down (Ooh)
Feels like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door (Ooh)


07. Terry jacks – Seasons in the sun


The first form of this songs – called “Le Moribond” (interpreted “The Dying Man”) and sung in French – depended on the story of an elderly person biting the dust of grief because of his better half going behind his back with his closest companion. Be that as it may, Terry Jacks, dedication to a friend who was dying of leukemia at the time, reworked the track, excluding references to the aforementioned story and instead basing it on a man’s final words to some distinct people whom he loves.

Moment you’ll tear up:
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time


06. Simon & Garfunkel – The Sounds of Silence


Paul Simon told that he composed the melody when he was 21.

He clarified that he composed the song at his first task in music industry. His activity was to take the tunes that the distributing company owned, go to record companies and check if any of their artists needed to record these songs. He worked for around a half year and didn’t have a single song placed, so he gave them two or three his songs as he felt remorseful about taking their cash. At that point he got into a contention with them and stated, Look, I quit, and I’m not giving you my new song.” This song was “The Sound of Silence.” He felt that he would publish it himself, and starting there, Paul claimed his musics.

The key to “The Sound of Silence” is the simplicity of the melody and the words, which are [based on] youthful alienation. It’s a young lyric, but not bad for a 21-year-old. It’s not a sophisticated thought, but a thought that I gathered from some college reading material. It wasn’t something that I was experiencing at some deep, profound level – nobody’s listening to me, nobody’s listening to anyone – it was a post-adolescent angst, but it had some level of truth to it, and it resonated with millions of people. Largely because it had a simple and singable melody

Paul Simon

Moment you’ll tear up:
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence


05. Passenger – Let Her Go


We never truly can experience darkness without the idea of light. We never can value the estimation of an individual when they are simply there. We are simply too agreeable and acquainted with one another until we let them go. We shoo them away by our mean words, neglectful deeds, immature ways. At that point they are no more.

Life is short so given us a chance to spread love. We experience torment however we should love in any case and let that mean, immature and thoughtless person we give it a second thought. We cherish love.

Moment you’ll tear up:

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast


04. Johnny Cash – Hurt


Here’s a line directly from the Associated Press’ ongoing survey of a Nine Inch Nails show: “NIN shut the night with a slow and smoky cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt.'” The Internet had a field day ridiculing the wire administration for the glaring blunder, and the article has since been expelled from the website, yet it’s straightforward how a wonder such as this occurred; Johnny Cash’s 2002 spread has essentially displaced the first in the hearts of people in general. Cash was a year from passing on when he cut the song, and he transformed the story of heroin maltreatment into a think back on his life while scarcely changing any of the verses. June Carter Cash showed up in the video only three months before she dies. With no contest, it was Cash’s final masterpiece and the ideal tribute. When you hear Trent Reznor singing it today, it’s almost difficult to not consider Johnny Cash.

Moment you’ll tear up:
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end


03. Gary Jules – Mad World


Story of a unhappy childhood and too much depression. The entire song is him realizing that there’s no point in existing. He’s not necessarily suicidal, but he sees existence as trivial. His dreams about dying are not necessarily about death, but about ceasing to exist altogether, something he wishes was possible. The part about the children is saying that children are oblivious to the concept of existence, that they see only what they know, and that he wishes he could share their ignorance. The birthday symbolizes the child’s mentality of an event so significant that it is worth looking forward to consistently, believing that the next one will be better than the last, when in reality the effects of the event dull until it is simply another day. During the time when a child feels so excited about an event that an adult finds almost insignificant, they display true ignorance and obliviousness. The singer yearns to be a child and have such mentalities, but as he cannot, he sees no reason to exist.

Moment you’ll tear up:

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow


02. R.E.M. – Everybody Hurts


Basically, R.E.M’s. “Everyone Hurts” is intended to keep people from ending their very own lives. In 2003, co-essayist Peter Buck of R.E.M. had expressed that its melodious straightforwardness is established in the way that the track is “waimed at teenagers”. Nonetheless, it ought to be noted, interestingly, that the spread workmanship for “Everyone Hurts” includes a man who is obviously a senior resident. Or on the other hand, as Buck later expressed in 2005, this tune has “tended to work for people of a lot of ages”.

However, evidently R.E.M. needed youthful audience members specifically who might experience the ill effects of genuine sorrow to relate to the song and accept an alternate course rather than potentially self-hurt. What’s more, the contention the band uses is that “everybody hurts”. At the end of the day, the focused on group of spectators isn’t the only one in their torment. Actually being discontent with the manner in which things are going is something that we as a whole experience on occasion. So as opposed to accomplishing something outrageous, they should “hang on”, as in not abandon life. What’s more, one specific cure the band upholds is for such people to “take comfort in (their) friends”.

The iconic video showing depressed people in a traffic jam was filmed in San Antonio, Texas. MTV played it all the time in 1993, making this one of R.E.M.’s most well-known songs.

Moment you’ll tear up:

When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
If you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on


01. Eric Clapton – Tears in Heaven


Eric Clapton’s child Conor was only four years of age when he tumbled to his death from the 53th floor of a New York working in 1991. Not long after the disaster, Clapton and lyricist Will Jennings wrote “Tears in Heaven” as a tribute to the youngster. They never envisioned it would turn into an immense hit, yet inside months, it was Number Two on the Hot 100 and swept the Grammys. The melody originally showed up on the soundtrack to the generally overlooked Jason Patric film Rush, yet the variant a great many people recall originates from Clapton’s 1992 Unplugged special. By 2004, Clapton could never again bear to play out the tune at his shows and he dropped it; it returned earlier this year.

Moment you’ll tear up:

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I’ll find my way through night and day
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay here in heaven
