Gauraa thinks “I Want To Hold Your Hand” is one of the saddest songs ever written. She thinks you’ll understand.
Here’s a tip for singers (both women and men): that whispering thing is super sexy. It killed during Springsteen’s “Kitty’s Back” or “Sandy” and it kills here. It’s that mysterious thing, you know? More than any other art form, in music, I think what is left unsaid and unplayed — to paraphrase Miles Davis — is more important than what is played. So if you really want my attention, stop yelling at me and whisper. I promise I’ll listen harder.
Every time I’m falling hard, and every time I’m getting back up after a relationship, I’m listening to this song and standing up the morning the after. After all, I’m really the only one I can count on to be around the morning after.
It’s not easy being a fifth grader who’s just too sad to eat lunch even when it’s pizza stick day.
Isn’t it cruel that even the best friendships don’t always last forever? Why does fate bring people together just to let them drift apart?
When the brief respite a few hours of sleep provides you from misery fades into morning, when the same, unending day ensues, when there’s no one to call, and all you hope is to disappear perfectly into absence–their absence–it is then that song finds you.
