30DSC: A Song That Makes You Sad

30-Day Song Challenge Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad

Over the years, there have been many songs that have covered me with a blanket of sadness.  Old love songs.  Songs of loss.  Songs of yearning.

There is one song, though, that brings me to tears every single time I hear it.

Foo Fighters -- "My Hero."

This may seem like an unusual choice, but it's not.  You see, my brother had used this song as the ringtone for my dad. Every time I hear it, I think of my dad.

And my dad was a hero.  He was a hero to a great many people, including his seven children.  We lost him five years ago, but he is still our hero.

Who is your hero?


  1. I love the Foo Fighters. And your explanation about the ring tone...makes me a little teary.
