Listening to some music today, I noted that I had played the two tracks that I consider to be the saddest songs. One is from our era, and the other, though not actually from the 50's, is by an artiste who had his first hit in our era.
No. 1.
When a young boy, I saw the film "The Balled Of Davy Crockett". Near the end, when they all knew they were going to die next day, Davy sang the song "Farewell". It made me cry, and it still does.
No. 2
George Jones had his first hit in 1954, but this song hails from his comeback years. "He Stopped Loving Her today" brings a lump to my throat, it is such a sad story.

Anyone else want to join this happy thread?
Dave H
