Let’s Take A Moment Day 57

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing.  But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day.  And if this helps anyone else, even better.

Sad love songs are a staple of most genres of music.  The loss of love and the broken heart that follows has been documented by practically anyone who has ever sung or written a song.  The ones that are done well are sad, or moving, or heartbreakingly beautiful.  Today’s song is all those things.  It is also a simple honest eloquent evocative tale of woe done with a fantastic passionate vocal, gorgeous string arrangement, powerful horns and superb musicianship.  It is one of the best broken heart songs out there.

This heart could not accept and pretend

I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing what I love and how I am coping with you.

Stay well.
