Passionate endings, fond farewells, sad separations or stimulating solitude, name songs that capture or reflect on a moment when two or more people are parted. Parting is such sweet sorrow. I first said it, humorously and on the spur, to an ex-girlfriend years ago at the end of a passionate, but destructively heartbreaking relationship. I remember, at the time, that sudden feeling of relief that it was all finally over, and with this, a wave of a high excitement about newly found freedom.

But then came that horrible, sinking feeling of loneliness and having to start over afresh with the nagging self-doubt that follows. Such emotions are the stuff of many songs. They may also imagine leaving that is yet to happen, and all are valid this week. People operate socially in all sorts of ways. This might be because my upbringing, influenced by a famous northern city of rain-soaked humour, is all about ironic affection, cruel kindness and a natural suspicion of small talk.

And then, at the other end of the scale, I exchanged the phrase with a dear friend. She was dying. We were both laughing, oddly, but with me holding back the tears a little, sharing the blackest of humour in the grimmest of circumstances, as she, during a long process of slipping away from terminal cancer, still managed to share a joke. I was among a bunch of friends who gathered only last month in Glasgow to celebrate her life and everlasting charisma, 10 years later.

National or international events can also separate people. Wars have played a big part, as this touching story about a photograph of a boy trying to catch up with his father queuing in a line of soldiers in And war, lest we forget, is not just about guns and battles, but the families that get left behind. Brief or even longer separations from family loved ones can have a restorative effect for one or both sides.

It can allow some to breathe life into something lost — a chance to rediscover the individual you used to be. It can be a clear new window to see the world, a space to clear the clutter in your life or shovel out the shit in your shed. It might be chance to catch up with the l, or the girls, and reconnect with your past, or your peers. Or just a chance to be alone, be creative, get clean, and regain the appetite of missing the things you take for granted.

Many songs are about these feelings or circumstances too. Individuals also appear to move at different speeds in life. For songwriters, this might be about the difficulties of adjusting to success or a new lifestyle, and leaving behind the friends they used to know, or because they struggle to keep them.

Leaving or being left behind is a huge topic in song, and has been touched upon in other Readers Recommend topics, such as being alone, departures, goodbyes and missing someone. But from either side, yearning for an elsewhere is a fundamental force in songwriting.

And even with overlapping topics, what was left behind? A handful of titles to represent a tidal wave of ideas, feelings and creativity, with so many songs unlisted or new ones undiscovered. There may be new endings, or beginnings. Improvements are ongoing. Such things are special and unrivalled on Readers Recommend, so let us keep and extend them, move on and adapt.
