If I had to pick a song I would say it would be fragile by sting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB6a-iD6ZOY After 9/11 I played this song over and over again. He said nothing comes from violence and never could and reminds us how fragile we truly are.

I love this song! I remember seeing this movie in the theater with my cousins, who were both boys and a few years older than me. I did NOT want to see it, but majority ruled. I ended up loving it, and by extension, this song. Memories!

Wow, I really can't think of any sad songs. But if I were to look to Madonna, I love "Live to Tell" to death [<-pun?] but it kind of makes me sad.

The Winner Takes It All - ABBA.

Sad sad sad breakup song, made during the real breakup of Agnetha and Björn.

I recently realised that so so much of my personal beliefs could be covered by Madonna songs. Consequently I obtained a 'best of' collection which was still missing one or two songs. 'This Used To Be My Playground' was one of them.

My own personally choice would be a Harry Chapin song. Either 'A Better Place to Be' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgpbIPQl7CA - a song about loneliness, or 'Sniper' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB5_N-D5sv0 - a rather rough song about alienation.

Ah my boy Sting. I'm a big fan of A Thousand Years.

Yeah that was a great movie. I'm sure there will be a special edition of it next year when it turns 20 years old.
