What do you listen to when you are sad? Does it depend on what kind of sad it is? Do you have tunes you listen to for heartbreak and music you listen to when it’s mortality that’s gotten you down?
I am mourning the loss of a dear family friend and only silence and sobs have sounded fitting. In the coming days, I am sure music (as it always is) will be a comfort. What would you recommend?
“Stop Sobbing Now” by the Kinks?
Anyone who says “I Will Follow You in to the Dark” by Death Cab for Cutie will get 20 lashes and loose all my respect.
I have listened to one song, and as obvious as it may seem, it was ”Hallelujah” by Jeff Buckley. Its heartbreak matches mine and it seems totally okay to sob your eyes out to it.
I’ll be laying low from Sound on the Sound and shows for a little bit, but I look forward to hearing your recommendations for a musical salve.
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
