Some tracks are beautiful in the simplicity of their message. This is true of Canadian country artist Nicole Rayy’s latest Sad Song. Almost feeling like a riposte to The Sound Of Music classic My Favourite Things it focusses on how sometimes comfort comes from the strangest places.

In a lot of ways, Sad Song is a typical country pop song. There’s a sweeping chorus with big emotional vocals and a classic feel. Yet Sad Song stood out for me just by how much it nailed its topic. There really is something about a sad song that makes you sing along.
The track comes with a video of Nicole looking suitably melancholic on a rainy day which you can check out below. If you’re having a bad day, or even if your not, I think you’ll enjoy it.
