I'm not sure if human condition is the right term here, but I've always had an interest in songs that deal with comparatively difficult topics in sensitive and exploring ways. For example, Lucinda Williams' 'Sweet Old World' talks about someone she knew who committed suicide and laments his loss and how was it that he was able to not recognize all the things he'd chosen to leave behind. Martina McBride's 'Concrete Angel' talks about how death was finally able to free a little girl from child abuse and a society that looked the other way and didn't want to get involved. Kinky Friedman, who wasn't elected governor of Texas, recorded 'Ride 'Em Jewboy' which speaks hauntingly about the final solution. What recordings can you think of that deal with difficult subjects like this?
