Have you ever ended a relationship with someone, only to find that you can't stop thinking about them? (Ouch, right?) Have you ever gotten a second chance and then totally blown it? (Double ouch.) Well then, the story of Orpheus and Eurydicemight just be for you.
Orpheus, the rock star of Greek mythology, falls head over heels in love with Eurydice, a beautiful wood nymph. The two get married, and are ready to embark on an blissful life of making-out between Orpheus' jam sessions when BAM!, Eurydice dies of a snake bite. Didn't see that one coming, did you?
Overcome with grief, Orpheus starts to play some majorly sad songs on his lyre (the electric guitar hadn't been invented yet), and decides to heroically travel to the Underworld to free his main squeeze.
It's a story of passionate love, gut-wrenching heartbreak, and musical awesomeness – and it's got a twist ending that'll have you singing the blues. So break out the tissues and turn on a sad Taylor Swift ballad, because Orpheus and Eurydice might beat Romeo and Juliet for Most Tragic Love Story Ever.
