Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

Of the millions of songs which have been recorded, only 30 songs can make it into The Lucy Museum of Musicians who deserve entry to Lucy's Museum of Musicians and at number 13 we have Jar Of Hearts by Christini Perri (2011).

Men...Bah, who do you think you are? There were two versions of this song, the one with just the piano and another where they threw guitars and drums at it and elevated it from a good song to one of the best although they chose, in my opinion, the lesser simpler one. 
Who of us hasn't been in the same place as Christina and thought, just like her majestic line, 'I wished i had missed the first time that we kissed', inspired lyric that one.
Another atmospheric builder and Perri's slightly husky voice is perfect for this break up song and this was her debut effort although i can't recall anything else from her since which is a shame as it left Adele a clear run on the piano based ballads front.
It's a beautiful, emotional, and slightly dark song and let it be a warning to you men, especially anyone who dates Ms Perri because mess with her and she will write a brilliant rock ballad about you.
