Not going on the road no more
Let some other fool sing these songs
Let some other guy take my place
I've done this for too long
Done this for too long

I have given them twenty-odd years
They took the best years of my life
And all I got to show for all this
Is songs that make you cry
Songs that make you cry
But there'll be

No more sad songs
No more sad songs
No more sad songs
No more sad songs

Sing the one about the guy that lost his true love
Play the one about the girl he left behind
Everybody wants to hear the sad ones
Everybody wants to hear the sad ones
And for the life of me
I don't know why

What the hell did I ever do
To deserve to be loved by you
Sweetest music there could ever be
Is standing next to me
Standing next to me

And we'll sing

No more sad songs
No more sad songs
No more sad songs
No more sad songs

This was really lovely and moving. I'm not at all familiar with the source material, but the emotional narrative still came through loud and clear. Really nicely done!

So I saw this vid for the first time at the Festivids show at Vidukon last weekend, and I, just, I love it so much - I love how strongly and clearly it comes together. I've been inspired to go check out the films and I'm really enjoying them - thank you so much for this.

I hope you know how often I watch this and how much it still means to me. I considered offering Donald Strachey Mysteries for Festivids this year, but I didn't know what I could possibly want to say that you didn't say beautifully in this vid. So, thank you. <333

I came across this at VidUKon a couple of years back, and was completely mesmerized by both the source and the emotional punch the vid was packing. It took me a whole year to figure out which vid it was (a combination of total vid overload at vidding cons and my conviction that The Donald Strachey Mysteries must be some starchy Agatha Cristie cop-off crime show - *face-palm*), but it's on my rec list now. Also watched the movies, just so sad that there don't seem to be any more planned.
