I must have been 9 or 10 when I first heard "Seasons in the Sun"...and it was meaningful to me because that was the age when I was first becoming more concretely aware of my own mortality. I always wondered who "Michelle" was in the song. A girlfriend? A friend? And why was the man dying? And, how awful it would be to die and leave everyone you love, never being able to experience anything again!

It seemed like a very sad song at the time, a song about someone having to let go of the active life all around him. However, I usually find I feel happier after listening to sad songs than before listening to them, so I'm not sure if it is really a sad song or a happy song!

Hmm, interesting thread. I like or love sad music, it makes me feel better

Four examples...

I should have guessed that somebody would put "Lazarus" in here. Yeah, its sad enough, but it's boring as shit in my opinion. The only song on the album that I skip past whenever I listen to it.

Hi but I am glad DiSTANToblivion post Lazarus here, I forgot it

I love this song (piano in chorus is great), I love also contrast between Shallow and Lazarus.

Here is one live version with Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) on piano...
