Sensitive Thugs: 25 Songs for a Lonely Valentine's Day

Whitesnake "Here I Go Again" (1982)


Softest Lyric: "I'm just another heart in need of rescue/Waiting on love's sweet charity"

Love, as R&B artist Keri Hilson once postulated, "Comes around and it knocks you down." It's important that you get back up on that stallion we call "life" and ride off gracefully into the sunset with your head held high as you ignore the bruised coccyx you have acquired from being thrown off so many times. Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" is an anthemic rallying cry for the dejected and jaded. It's pointless to sulk when there is so much for which to live. Get out there. Be the drifter you always knew you could be.
