Ok, with another thread asking what is the best love song of all time, I thought I’d ask the opposite, what is, in your opinion, the most depressing love song of all time? My personal nomination is “If You Could Read My Mind” by Gordon Lightfoot. Yes, it is a beautiful song, but it with lines like this,
"And if you read between the lines
You’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand
The feeling’s that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way
And I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feeling’s gone
And I just can’t get it back"
it is just depressing as all hell.
