Most poignant unrequited love..


James

Recommended Posts

Good calls, especially "I Can't Make You Love Me." It was written by Mike Reid, football-player-turned-songwriter. He was an All-Pro defensive lineman with the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1970s. That song is the epitome of unrequited love. :-(

I'll ultimately put a list here, but for now, the one that comes to mind, because I've been listening to it a lot lately, is the Beatles "For No One." It's one of McCartney's more under-appreciated gems, a song that has all kinds of heartbroken lines. Like, "And in her eyes you see nothing, no sign of love behind the tears cried for no one."
