PLAYLIST FOR “SAD SONGS” (9.20.14)

22 Sep

It’s that time of year when millions of people have to confront their S.A.D., their Seasonal Affect Disorder. Mine is usually triggered by the realization that a new season of “Dancing With The Stars” is right around the corner. That’s one of so many things that can make me so, so sad. In honor of my unearned self-pity, this week I presented an hour of wonderful and wonderfully sad songs. Missed it? Boo-hoo for you.
