Because sometimes the slowest, quietest songs hit you the hardest.

The Stranglers weren't exactly a ballad band, but fuck, did they nail this one.

PJ Harvey feat Thom Yorke

"This mess we're in"

Absolutely gorgeous song.

The last verse is one of my favourite passages of music - their overlapping voices/lines which then come together perfectly to sing together 'This mess we're in'

One of my fave things about the Adrian Belew-fronted King Crimson was that they could really deliver a beautiful ballad when the mood struck them. I'm going to cover this myself one day.    💖

An old one, but a good one...

Sometimes Iím full of anger and grieving, so far away from believing that any sun will reappear
