Music Mama: Sad Songs Say So Much

By Jackie, the Music Mama

What often separates the mamas from the papas is that women aren’t afraid to have a good cry now and then, when we really need one. For those times when you’re convinced no one has ever felt as bad as you do, try putting a few of these tunes on your ipod. It’ll help you remember that you’re not alone. And hopefully, after you release a little emotional tension, you’ll be singing a happier tune real soon. Pass the tissues.
