Nothing can disperse bad feelings faster. So why is it so hard? An apology left unsaid can leave lingering resentment and help construct walls between lovers, friends and family alike.

1. Elton John - "Sorry Seems To Be the Hardest Word"
"It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word"
2. Hothouse Flowers - "I'm Sorry"
"Yeah and say you're sorry, so I say I'm Sorry
'Cos I been telling you lies, standing on your face
I been making you cry all over the place Lord
I should have known (known) should've known better
Well I could not phone (phone) but I could
3. The Posies — "Apology"
"So push the button ring the bell
Behold your tongue it's served you well
Enough to bring you here, won't you please…
Take me back - teach me
Take me back — Apology"
4. The Decemberists — "The Apology Song"
"So I wrote you this song
In the hope that you'd forgive me
Even though it was wrong
Being so careless with a thing so great"
5. Remy Zero — "Apology For You"
"I try to stay here
But all I did was brought you down
You pulled away
Just look at me now
If I could change
I'd tear this twisted frame in two
I'd bend my life for you"
