Tears ~ Saturday Song Challenge

Kim started a Saturday song challenge. I love music. All kinds and genres. Today I seem to be in a melancholy sort of mood. This song is kind of sad but beautiful as well.

“Tears in Heaven” is a ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd floor New York apartment of his mother’s friend, on March 20, 1991. 

Clapton, who arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident, was visibly distraught for months afterwards. This song is one of Clapton’s most successful.
