My dad introduced me to the song “For No One” by the Beatles a while back, and it has since become one of my favorite songs. There is so much insight and sadness in the lyrics, like the poignant last line “A love that should have lasted years.” It reminds me of another song by The Beatles, “I’m looking through you,” which also perfectly describes how quickly relationships can change. As they so eloquently say, “Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.” Kind of a bummer topic. But there is also a freedom in the lyrics, an escape from something that wasn’t right. “You were above me, But not today.”
Aaaaaaand with that, here are my top ten songs for the week. A mix of melancholy and freedom and being better off.
