As 150 Canções Mais Tristes do Mundo

Entrar em tristeza profunda não é para qualquer um, e muito menos para os fracos de coração. Mas calma, às vezes é muito bom estar no meio dela... você dedica a maior parte do tempo pensando e refletindo sobre suas atitudes e idealizando maneiras de tornar sua vida melhor, sonha de montão, liberta emoções, e por aí vai.
