"Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M has got to be one of my favourite songs EVER! And the accompanying video is simply superb. I think it is a powerful and moving ballad, and one that I have used, and recommended to others to use, in times of darkness when you need a candle to light the way home.

When your day is long and the night
The night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go
Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand. Oh, no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes
So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
(Hold on, hold on)

Everybody hurts
You are not alone

Yes, it's a good 'un. Although in more recent years Coldplay's Fix You has sort of supplanted it in my mind for sad times to be endured and overcome. :/

You are way too young and trendy for me! Coldplay?

Coldplay. Totally. Gives me chills to listen to still...
