CARPENTERS "GOODBYE TO LOVE"
THIS song is so sad.
"I'll say goodbye to love/No one ever cared If I should live or die." You can keep your doom-laden gothic music or your I-hate-the-world nu-metal: real pain is here, with a lovely melody, sung by a voice like caramel.
And there's no real hope, no silver lining on Karen's cloud, "Loneliness and empty days will be my only friend."
A curious things about this song is that it has two ace guitar solos. Real teeth over-biting, eyes-scrunched-closed guitar solos. Guitar solos don't occur in songs like this, but this one has two of 'em. Yay.
