It is a reminder of how close sisters can be. They rely on each other’s support to help get through this adventure we call life.
The best songs about family include those about the relationship between father and son
The best songs about family involve the relationship between a father and son because they stir emotions of trial, tribulations and love. The winner of the best song ever about the relationship between a father and son is (drum roll please); a tie between Harry Chapin’s “Cats in the Cradle” and Cat Steven’s” Father & Son”.
Father & Son is a beautiful song about a father’s love for a son and the time he spends telling him right from wrong. You go away with a feeling that the father is doing a great job spending time with his boy molding into what he will eventually be; a loyal husband and father.
On the opposite side of the spectrum from Father to Son is Cats in the Cradle, a story of a dad who does not spend time with his boy. Despite the fact that the Father is never home; the son still perceives him as a hero, wanting to be like him. When he grows up he ends up just like him. He doesn’t even give his dad the time of day. There is truth to the saying; The acorn doesn’t fall from the tree. The song makes you cry but the reality is; not all families are like the perfect ones portrayed in 70’s TV shows.
Song’s about family include music about brothers relationships and the winner in this category is “He Aint heavy he’s my brother”
The winner of the best song about the relationship between brothers is the Hollies “He aint heavy he’s my brother.” This song is about the unconditional love brother’s share for each other. The song he aint heavy he’s my brother teaches us that life is a long road. Regardless of what happens during that long road we call life, brothers are not burdens. Brothers are children from the same parents and they share the same blood and no matter how many fights or disagreements they encounter, they should always try to make up. Life is too short.
Songs about family and their trials, tribulations and love are everywhere. They are the Am and FM radio, internet, satellite, CD and most importantly in our memories. There are too many songs about family to talk about and hand out awards for in this story.
Listen to songs about family and all the trials, tribulations and love. See if it’s true; they stir emotions. Keep listening to songs about family and go back in time remembering all the happy and sad moments because with music and songs about family; you stay emotionally alive.
