So, here is Volume 1 of The World's Saddest Songs: I'm Living in Shame by Diana Ross The Supremes.
If you can't listen, here's the story: a girl grows up being ashamed of her mother and their poverty, but her mother works so hard to give her a good life. The girl grows up, marries, lies about her mother, has a baby. Then, her mom dies while making jam, never having known her grandchild. Are you crying?
I also wanted to make a mix of stalker songs - that's for another post, I guess.
