Today is the 10th which means it’s time for Day 10 of the challenge! As I gave 12 songs that make me happy it’s only right I give a few songs that make me sad.
1. Jennifer Lopez Ft. LL Cool J – All I have (2002)
Something about this song that can just put you in your feelings. “Be easy don’t make decisions when you’re mad”…that quote stuck with me throughout the song. The video is memorable too with the snow and the fur and the pinkness!
2. Fantasia – Lose to Win (2013)
“if it makes you cry, cry, cry”, Fantasia has the ability to demonstrate her emotions perfectly in a song. This song implies that in life sometimes you have to take a loss in order to win / be happy again. The song also shows how no matter how hard you try with someone, sometimes it’s not enough for them & you have to accept it.
3. Chris Brown – The Breakup (2015)
This song wasn’t released officially but it was on Chris Brown’s “Before the Party” Mixtape. The song resonates with me because I believe it’s a vulnerable side to Chris. He talks about how he was stuck between being happy about the fact he was due to be a father but also sad about the fact he has hurt his girlfriend at the time. The song reminds me of Usher – Confessions to an extent.
4. Rihanna Ft. Ne-Yo- Hate that I Love you (2007)
Love this song but the content gives me an element of sadness. That feeling when you can’t let go of something and you hate that you don’t have that control!
5. Diddy Ft Faith Evans & 112 – I’ll Be Missing You (1997)
This song was released as a tribute to the late Notirious B.I.G & is such a beautiful tribute at that. The blending of Faith Evans and Diddy with 112 makes this song the perfect classic. The song will have you missing people yourself.
6. Brandy & Ray J – Another Day in Paradise (2002)
7. Aretha Franklin – Bridge over troubled water (1971)
8. K-Ci & JoJo – All My Life (1997)
9. Nas – Dance (2002)
10. Maxwell – This Woman’s Work (2001)
This song was originally by Kate Bush but Maxwell’s version was featured in the classic film “Love & Basketball“. The high notes in this song are enough to pull at your heartstrings.
