Heartbroken, Son? Now You Can Really Enjoy the Music!

When my kids were little, and I'd be playing and talking about music with them, they'd say, "Dad, what is this song about?"

You can probably guess my answer. Because eight out of 10 songs (not an official stat) are about the same thing: Love. Of course, that one simple word cannot begin to explain that very complicated subject as it lyrically weaves itself in and out of every genre of music. This is especially true with the dark side of love. You know, heartbreak.
