When you’re feeling sad, there are many great songs out there about loss. Whether you’re feeling a sense of loss or the loss of a loved one, there is a song out there for you. These songs will help you get through the difficult time. Here are some of our favorites: Taylor Swift’s “I’ll Remember You,” Celine Dion’s “Ashes,” and R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts.”
Taylor Swift’s “I’ll Remember You”
“I’ll Remember You” is a song written by Taylor Swift. The song is from her album 1989, released in October 2014. The video features an African movie set complete with lions. The song uses the sound of a heartbeat for its beat, and is particularly striking during the first 12 seconds. It’s a soothing song, and the sound of Swift’s heartbeat suggests that this song holds emotional significance to her.
Swift has used death imagery in her songs for years. Her “My Tears Ricochet” from 2020 is another great example of how she uses it. It’s likely that Swift and Gyllenhaal danced under a refrigerator light in the movie, but it’s not confirmed. Swift’s fans have recreated the same moment with their significant others.
Gyllenhaal’s sister Maggie lives in Brooklyn. In the original version of the song, Swift omitted this line. She said she wrote the song “out of spite” and added the line after noticing that her sister Maggie was waiting for her. It’s unclear whether she was waiting for Gyllenhaal to come to her birthday party. However, it’s possible she was hoping for Gyllenhaal to make a surprise appearance.
The song was written after Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal split. In a 2012 interview with NPR, the actress hinted at the relationship. In a recent interview, Swift also hinted that the song might be about the actor’s boyfriend. In an earlier interview, she told her fans that the song was about the on-again-off-again relationship.
Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal dated for about nine months before the split. While Swift never confirmed or denied that the song was about Jake, she did allude to a possible age difference that may have led to the breakup. Jake was nine years older than Taylor, and they split before she reached her 21st birthday.
Celine Dion’s “Ashes”
One of the best surprise movies of 2018 is Deadpool 2, and one of the songs in the movie is Celine Dion’s “Ash”. “Ashes” is the latest single off her new Deadpool 2 soundtrack. The song was written by Petey Martin, produced by Steve Mac, and remixed by Steve Aoki. It has already earned over 12 million views on YouTube.
The music video for “Ashes” premiered on Good Morning America. The video features Dion in a power-blue gown, as she sings the soaring ballad. She’s backed by a dancer dressed in Deadpool regalia.
“Ashes” is a ballad about hope. The music video, which premiered today, also features Deadpool, a superhero character played by Ryan Reynolds. He performs a contemporary dance routine next to the singer. The video features funny dialogue between the two.
Deadpool 2’s “Ashes” music video was directed by David Leitch, and it was filmed at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The song is featured on the movie’s Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Besides “Ashes,” the movie also features two new songs recorded exclusively for the movie.
R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”
“Everybody Hurts” is a song from R.E.M., released in 1993. The band split songwriting credit between itself and two other members. The band’s drummer, Bill Berry, largely did not participate in the songwriting, but contributed a drum sample for the track. The band’s bassist, John Paul Jones, wrote the string arrangement.
The song’s production and melody are both outstanding. Stipe explains in an interview that the song was written as a message to teenage fans, urging them to stay optimistic. “Everybody Hurts” is also reminiscent of David Bowie’s “Rock’n’Roll Suicide” in tone. The arpeggiated guitar pattern is catchy and the strings fill the song out perfectly. Michael Stipe’s voice is also excellent, sounding good, and delivering a message with meaning.
The song won four MTV Video Music Awards and won the Grammy for best rock video. The band’s success led to their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. The group disbanded amicably in 2011 citing health concerns.
Though not the most in-depth piece, “Everybody Hurts” was a great album. Despite its negative side, the band’s positive message is well-received and relevant for today’s society. Its positive message has reached a very wide audience.
Reba McEntire’s “Yesterday”
Reba McEntire’s debut album “Country Roads” was a platinum selling album. The title track went to number one on the country charts and helped cement her stardom. She was named Entertainer of the Year by the CMA for the album.
The album was dedicated to the band members who died in a plane crash. The plane crashed on March 16, 1991, near San Diego, Calif. McEntire’s band members, Kirk Cappello and Joey Cigainero, as well as her tour manager and backup singer, Paula Kaye Evans, were killed in the crash. Fortunately, the singer survived and returned to touring four weeks later.
In 1991, Reba McEntire performed “I’m Checkin’ Out” at the Oscars, which she won. She was also grieving for the loss of seven band members during a plane crash. But she decided to perform her award-winning song regardless.
Reba McEntire’s performance was also a timely one, given the current political climate. After her performance, Reba McEntire’s popularity has increased and her music is still as strong as ever. The song’s lyrics are inspiring and empowering.
James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain”
“Fire and Rain” is a song by American singer-songwriter James Taylor. It was released in 1970 on Warner Bros. Records and peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. It features apocalyptic imagery and sparse arrangements centered around Taylor’s ringing acoustic guitar figures. The song is considered to be a classic in the singer-songwriter genre.
Taylor’s “Fire and Rain” was written during a period when his life was nearly destroyed. He struggled with depression and heroin addiction during this period, and had an unfavorable end to his career. In this context, the lyrics of “Fire and Rain” are even more poignant. While Taylor’s songs are generally lighter and happy, this song has a deeper meaning.
In addition to the song’s emotional themes, “Fire and Rain” contains references to his personal life. Taylor’s first emotional breakdown occurred when he was 17 years old. The following year, he was hospitalized in Manhattan and later committed himself to a private psychiatric facility in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It was in this hospital that Taylor wrote the second verse of his song “Jesus Look Down,” in which he beseeches Jesus to look down upon him and guide him to make a stand against drug addiction.
The lyrics of “Fire and Rain” are based on the lives of two people who influenced Taylor. Suzanne Schnerr, who died while Taylor was away from home, influenced the lyrics of the song. When she died, Taylor was in a deep depression, and the song reflects the sadness he felt.
