A Song That Makes You Sad

I don’t know how the Internet feels about Christina Perri, but, and not to be rude, I don’t care.  As with most things, I have no idea whether she’s cool or not cool or annoying or awesome or whatever, and I’m not at all concerned because her voice and lyrics tear at my soul.  I connect with this song, but in no direct way whatsoever.  I don’t have a whole lot of experience with breakup, but I just understand her pain, or the pain of the character she’s playing when she sings, and I can feel it as she does.

Jar Of Hearts by Christina Perri is simply a sad song and the sorrow seeps through the speakers and clutches your heart and doesn’t let go.

  1. My husband saved a shortcut to this song on our desktop because he knew I’d love it, and I’ve left it there because I listen to it more than I probably should – though, like you, I don’t have a lot of breakup angst, so what’s up with that?
