This puppetry is not for children.

Today's music comes from a musical with puppets. Yep. Puppets.

Avenue Q is about young people struggling to live in New York City. Except they're puppets. Most of them.

However, Avenue Q is not Sesame Street. It is NOT for children. It has a habit of saying all of the funny things we aren't supposed to think are funny, because they're so irreverent. If you're not easily offended, I suggest you check it out.

While this musical has a habit of being completely shocking, there is this sincerely honest and heartbreaking little gem, "There's a Fine, Fine Line," in which Kate Monster is breaking up with her boyfriend, Princeton.

This is my favorite song from the musical, because, well, there's all of the feels it gives you. Anyone who has ever experienced the end of a relationship can relate to this. Sometimes you just need to be sad for a while. Otherwise why would we watch shows like Doctor Who or read books like The Fault in Our Stars?

I'm an emotional slob, friends. But I kind of love it.

What's your favorite song this week? Share a link to it below!
