1. Joan Baez โ€“ Diamonds and Rust

The story goes that in 1974 Bob Dylan made a phone call to his ex-girlfriend, Joan Baez, to recite to her some lyrics for a new song of his, and in turn it awoke old and unprocessed feelings for him that Joan had not get around to dealing with yet.

Her way of dealing with these emotions was to record this iconic track lamenting the state of their old relationship and how it still affects her.

Such raw emotion in the lyrics!
