Good Morning, Heartache: Broken Hearts In Popular Song

Broken Heart

There are many cures for a broken heart—a pint of ice cream, maybe a few glasses of scotch—but I’ve always found that the best cure is sitting down and listening to some heartbreaking songs. It’s a comfort to hear your feelings translated it beautiful music, and there are perhaps no better representations of the broken heart than in the music from the Great American Songbook. On this show, we'll hear those torch songs performed by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Julie London, Billie Holiday, and more.
