Back in April we posted 64 Songs About Grief and Loss: Volume One. Some songs on our grief mix were WYG picks and some were suggested by you, our readers. After posting the first volume we received tons of song suggestions which told us we clearly needed to make a Volume Two.
If you read WYG with any regularity, you know we (arbitrarily) like our lists to be 64 things long, but we received so many song suggestions we had to make a special exception this time. As long as I could find a reader’s recommendation on iTunes, I included it (my apologies if I missed any).
I won’t take up too much of your time with talk, but as I was going through these I was really struck by the diverse range of music recommended. Pop, religious, rock, soul, country, folk; some with vague meanings, some with literal interpretations; and for all different types of loss. I guess this just reinforces the idea that we’re all unique individuals with personal ideas about what we find comforting in our grief.
Alright I guess I’ll let the music take over from here….
