1. Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton

Conor, el hijo de Eric Clapton, tenía solo cuatro años cuando murió al caer desde el piso 53 de un edificio de Nueva York en 1991. Poco después de la tragedia, Clapton y el compositor Will Jennings escribieron "Tears in Heaven" como tributo al niño.

Nunca imaginaron que se convertiría en un gran éxito, pero en unos meses, fue el número dos en el Hot 100 y arrasó con los Grammy.

La canción apareció por primera vez en la banda sonora de la olvidada película de Jason Patric, Rush, pero la versión que la mayoría de la gente recuerda proviene del especial Unplugged de 1992 de Clapton.

Letra

Would you know my name?
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same?
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven
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
Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please
Beyond the door
There's peace, I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven
Would you know my name?
If I saw you in heaven
Would you be the same?
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

2. Everybody Hurts – R.E.M.

No había muchas canciones del grupo R.E.M. con un mensaje sencillo antes de "Everybody Hurts". "The One I Love" es una canción contra el amor, "Gardening at Night" es simplemente confusa y todavía estamos tratando de entender "Losing My Religion". Pero no hay duda de que el mensaje de "Everybody Hurts" está ahí en el título.

El icónico video que muestra a personas deprimidas en un atasco fue filmado en San Antonio, Texas. MTV la mostró todo el tiempo en 1993, lo que la convirtió en una de las canciones más conocidas de R.E.M.

Letra

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough
Of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go
'Cause everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
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
'Cause everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand, oh no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone
No, no, no, you are not alone
If you're on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much
Of this life to hang on
Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts, sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes
So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts

3. Hurt – Nine Inch Nails

Con casi 7 minutos de duración, "Hurt" es una pista complicada sobre el fracaso, la decepción y el arrepentimiento. Realmente es difícil de escuchar si estás en una relación o situación en la que las cosas se sienten deprimidas y un poco desesperadas.

Así que permítete sumergirte en la inquietante decepción de NIN, pero luego vuelve a levantarte, porque tienes esto. Pero si necesitas un buen llanto más antes de irte, escucha la desgarradora versión de 2002 de Johnny Cash, lanzada justo antes de su muerte en 2003.

Letra

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I'm still right here
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

4. Something in the way – Nirvana

Hay mucha competencia por el título de la canción más triste de Nirvana, pero "Something in the Way" es una candidata muy fuerte. La balada lenta, que relata el supuesto tiempo que pasó Kurt Cobain durmiendo bajo un puente en Aberdeen, Washington, concluye Nevermind.

Grabó la pista en solitario y en acústico, y el resto de la banda luego grabó sus partes. Rara vez Kurt ha sonado tan vulnerable y crudo. La versión de MTV Unplugged es aún más intensa.

Letra

Underneath the bridge
Tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from my ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
Cause they don't have any feelings
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Underneath the bridge
Tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
Cause they don't have any feelings
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way
Mmm-mmm
Something in the way, yeah
Mmm-mmm

5. Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen

Hay dos formas de escuchar "Hallelujah". Primera opción: Analizar la letra de Leonard Cohen e investigar todas sus referencias bíblicas para comprender de qué trata la canción. Segunda opción: deja que el dolor de la canción te invada y deja que el llanto fluya libremente.

Letra

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you dont really care for music, do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor falls, the major lifts
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You say I took the Name in vain
I dont even know the Name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesnt matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I did my best, but it wasnt much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didnt come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah...

6. I’m so lonesome I could cry – Hank Williams

Tres años antes de morir, Hank Williams vertió todo el dolor de su matrimonio fallido con su esposa Audrey Sheppard en esta obra maestra. Williams escribió cientos de canciones y obtuvo muchos grandes éxitos durante su breve vida, pero este es uno de los pocos que todavía escuchas todo el tiempo, todas estas décadas después.

Seguropatinete

Probablemente se deba a que el mensaje es tan universal y su dolor crudo es imposible de ignorar. Desde entonces, ha sido cantada por todos, desde Elvis Presley hasta Johnny Cash y Yo La Tengo.

Letra

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry
I've never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind the clouds
To hide its face and cry
Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die?
That means he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry
The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry

7. The Scientist – Coldplay

Di lo que quieras sobre Coldplay, pero esta canción habla del impulso universal de querer regresar a un momento más simple y fácil en una relación, y lo hace de una manera conmovedora.

El comienzo en solitario de Chris Martin, el vocalista de la banda, así como el ostinato del piano ayudan a que la letra llegue mucho más dentro del alma que ninguna otra balada de Coldplay.

Letra

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart
Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
But tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are
Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

8. Cat’s in the cradle – Harry Chapin

La canción de Chapin gira en torno a una relación entre un padre demasiado ocupado y su hijo que lo admira. Conforme pasa el tiempo, el padre se da cuenta de las repercusiones de su naturaleza ausente.

Al final, el hijo adulto está demasiado ocupado para su padre anciano. Comenzó como un poema de la esposa de Chapin, Sandy; el padre de su primer marido era un político de Nueva York y tenían una relación tensa. Chapin murió en un accidente automovilístico en 1981 y nunca llegó a ver a sus propios hijos adultos, lo que hizo que la canción fuera aún más triste.

Letra

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you, dad"
"You know I'm gonna be like you"
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when"
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then
My son turned ten just the other day
He said, thanks for the ball, dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw, I said-a, not today
I got a lot to do, he said, that's okay
And he, he walked away, but his smile never dimmed
It said, I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when"
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then
Well, he came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?
He shook his head, and they said with a smile
What I'd really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when"
But we'll get together then, dad
You know we'll have a good time then
I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, I'd like to see you if you don't mind
He said, I'd love to, dad, if I can find the time
You see, my new job's a hassle, and the kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, dad
It's been sure nice talking to you
And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when"
But we'll get together then, dad
We're gonna have a good time then

9. Off the Table – Ariana Grande

En "Off the table" con The Weeknd, Grande captura la sensación de estar preocupada por no poder volver a amar. Esta canción es aún más triste cuando te das cuenta de que está hablando específicamente de encontrar el amor después de la muerte de su gran amor: el difunto rapero Mac Miller. Ella comienza la canción dirigiéndose directamente a él: "¿Volveré a amar de la misma manera? / ¿Alguna vez amaré a alguien como a ti?

Letra

Will I ever love the same way again? (Way again)
Will I ever love somebody like the way I did you?
Never thought you'd be so damn hard to replace
I swear I don't mean to be this way
If I can't have you, is love completely off the table?
Do I sit this one out and wait for the next life? (Next life)
Am I too cold? Am I not nice?
Might not be quite yet healed or ready
Should I be goin' too steady? (Too steady)
But I just wanna know is love complеtely off the table?
Will you bе there? (Will you be there?)
Can I still love you? (Can I, can I, babe?)
Not yet healed or ready (not ready)
Shouldn't be goin' too steady (too steady)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table?
I'll wait for you
Even though it always feels like I'll be number two
To someone you can't hold anymore
If you let me in, I'm ready to give you what I couldn't before
'Cause I got you, girl, let me help you through it
You're trying to fill the void with a couple boys
I can see right through it (You can see right through it)
I can you love you harder than I did before
Was in a dark place back then
I was toxic, then I was toxic to someone else
I was haunted by the hills (oh yeah, yeah)
I couldn't give you my all, but I will
If you let me in your arms (your arms)
If you let me in your heart
I don't think that love's completely off the table
Will you be there? (Yes, I will be there for you)
Can I still love you? (Yes, I been hurt before, before)
Not yet healed or ready (not ready)
Shouldn't be goin' too steady (too steady, no, no)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table?
So can you hold me?
If I let you, can you prove it to me? (Oh, no-no, no)
'Cause I need you to calm me down, babe
Gotta get out of my head (oh, woah)
Tryna be healed from this pain (oh)
Just wanna know, just wanna know, can you, baby? (Hey)
Can you touch it like you believe in it, baby? (oh, hey)
Do you think you never gonna leave on me, baby?
'Cause I ain't her and you ain't him, thankfully (baby, don't leave)
But it's gon' be hard to let someone else in again (woah)
Baby, baby (Woo-hoo)
Will you be there? (Will you be there? I'll still wait)
Can I still love you?
Not yet healed or ready (ooh, not ready)
Shouldn't be goin' too steady (no, no, ooh)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table, baby?
I swear, I swear
I will wait for you, whenever you need
Ooh, ooh

10. Breathe Me – Sia

Todos queremos que nos entiendan y la triste balada de Sia llega al corazón de los sentimientos de alienación, soledad y deseo de comprensión.

Letra

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame
Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, enfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up and breathe me
Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found
Yeah I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe
Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, enfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up and breathe me
Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, enfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up and breathe me
