[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCya1yiFFP4I heard this song on the radio during a recent train journey and was impressed enough to note down the singer (whose name the presenter mentioned, thankfully). I looked it up (thank you, YouTube!) and like it more and more.

For one thing, many ballads appeal to me. And with this song, I also appreciate the lyrics. I was in the position described in the song once: A former boyfriend had found love again and founded a family, while I was still single. So I can really relate to the singer’s ambivalent attitude. (The person who was happiest for me when I met my husband was that former boyfriend, by the way.)

Are there songs that touch a certain something in you because you have been there? Which are they?
