Kindness (At the End) by Renaissance.
Musing on the importance of moments and the finality of the past, it is possible that a song may have been recorded with more heart-breaking, soul-wrenching lyrics, but if it has I’ve yet to hear it. This little gem is hidden away among an array of wonderful tracks on 1978’s A Song For All Seasons album, and is disingenuous for two reasons: firstly, the upbeat intro completely misleads you – the last thing you’re expecting to hear is such a moving song. Secondly, it’s the only song on the album sung by bass player Jon Camp, rather than Annie Haslam.
