Country songs about dating your best friend when it goes from dating to a relationship
It went on to become the second-best-selling single of all time (after Bing Crosby's "White Christmas")."Would you know my name / If I saw you in heaven"Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" gets to you even if you don't know its backstory.But, sadly, most of us do: The legendary guitarist wrote the song after the death of his 4-year-old son, Connor, who accidentally fell from a window of a New York apartment building in 1991.So, in honor of his birthday tomorrow, let's take a look at of 10 of Blake Shelton's songs that managed to justify even the very worst of your dating decisions.Sometimes I listen to this song and just straight up cry. And usually I like to do it in the car like Blake does in the music video. This is hilarious for multiple reasons, the most pertinent of which is that I have never gone through anything even remotely like this. Thank you for making us feel better about all of our many romantic misfortunes.Clapton hadn't intended to release "Tears in Heaven." It was, as he wrote in his 2007 autobiography, "just what I did to stop from going mad.""I've looked at life from both sides now / From win and lose and still somehow / It's life's illusions I recall / I really don't know life at all"No one ever cried listing to the original track from Joni Mitchell's 1969 album "Clouds," released when she was 23 years old.But the lyrics resonate in a whole new way in her 2000 version, performed when Mitchell was approaching 60."And in her eyes you see nothing / No sign of love behind the tears"John Lennon called this track from "Revolver" one of his favorite songs by Paul Mc Cartney."Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley both wanted to sing this one solo, so they tossed a coin and Hatfield won.
"From the moment I wake to the moment I sleep / I'll be there by your side / Just you try and stop me, I'll be waiting in line / Just to see if you can / Oh, did you want me to change?
/ Well, I'll change for good."Does it surprise anyone that Coldplay has a friends zone song?
