Have you ever felt like your heart couldn’t take the sadness anymore? Like you can’t breathe and all you want to do is listen to sad songs that understand your pain? Well then, you need this playlist in your life.

In torch songs, singers express devotion or unrequited love for someone who does not return your love, has moved on to a new partner or whom the singers have taken for granted, hurt or otherwise mistreated.

So, grab some tissues and your vice of choice, and sing your blues away to this specially curated playlist featuring some of the greatest torch songs ever created.
