I am doing this section on Hurting Songs as a type of therapy to help myself with some problems I have been through.
My daughter introduced me to this video. Taylor says someone got her to “feeling like a nothing.” That is what I have been through. Hey I am not alone.
Demi says: “Go on and try to send me down, I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper.” Wow. I hope I can bounce back like that.
3. He gets that from me – Reba McEntire
This is a very heart touching song about experiencing the hurt of losing a loved one. This movie is done so very well.
4. I don’t hurt anymore – Martina McBride
This is an oldie, but a goodie, done by a modern singer. When I first heard this song by Hank Snow, it was like a comfort to my heart. I am longing for the day when I won’t hurt anymore.
5. It keeps right on a hurting since you’re gone – Johnny Tillotson
I heard this number on the radio some time back.
6. Blue side of lonesome – Jim Reeves
This one goes back to my childhood, where he says: “You’re saying you’re sorry you hurt me, but you hurt me much more than you know.”
7. It only hurts for a little while – Anne Murray
“That what they tell me, that’s what they say.” But sometimes the hurts won’t go away.
8. That’s when your heartaches begin – Elvis Presley
I saw a movie, and also read it somewhere, that when Elvis sang in Nashville, one of the top music men told him to go back to truck driving. But it backfired on him, because when Elvis was so popular, according to Chet Atkins, he nearly put Nashville out of business. So, what I am saying is, Elvis didn’t quit because of the criticism.
9. I can’t stop loving you – Guy and Ralna
“They say that time, heals a broken heart, but time has stood still, since we’ve been apart.” Maybe it is only Jesus who can heal a broken heart?
10. Crying time – Buck Owens and Emmylou Harris
Even though it is so sad, I still love it.
