When I think of what some of the most emotional songs I’ve heard are, I always come back to a song by Lauryn Hill from her solo album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. Though I’ve never been in quite the relationship that she describes, I think to anyone who has been in a really powerful relationship, some of this probably resonates.

It could all be so simple
But you’d rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars

– Wyclef thought this song was about him. I wonder if Lauryn should’ve redone You’re So Vain. But then again, maybe it is about Wyclef.

– The video is simple, but so is the song. There’s no need to show anything other than Lauryn.

– The line is, “To get some reciprocity” but the way she says it, I always wondered if there was a word ciprocity.

– Sing it Lauryn; “No one loves you more than me, and no one ever will.”

– The “care for me, there for me, cry for me, give to me” part of the song is just awesome.

– The video is nearly ruined by the light show at the end, but we can forgive.

While Lauryn may be as crazy as Michael Jackson nowadays, she created one of the more emotional relationship songs of our time. I blame the Marley dude.
