Onism describes the awareness of how little of the world you’ll experience. This emotion is almost synonymous with the portuguese term, Saudade, which is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. However, Onism looks at the general human experience while suadade refers to a specific experience. These songs are pretty much my impression of these emotional experiences:
2. Saudade – Us The Duo
3. A Great Big World, Christina Aguilera – Say Something
4. Rihanna – What Now
5. Same Mistake by James Blunt
6. Imagine (John Lennon) – Pentatonix
7. Macy Gray – I Try
8. Jewel – Hands
9. Jewel – Foolish Games
10. My Heart Will Go On – Violin Instrumental
