    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.

    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
