There is no shortage of sad songs in the world. Once again we try to demonstrate that in this, our third annual (annual!) Sad Songs program. Hear dreadfully sad hymns, show tunes, instrumentals, ballads, pop tunes, folk tunes, movie tunes, and then there’s Beck. And more. It’s enough to make you frown. But in the end we give you a recipe for happiness pie that should make everything all right again.
Download it and weep. Please.
