So there have been several discussions about how hormones make us act. As for me, I get super emotional and sad usually over nothing at all. Also, because I’m a Cancer, I’ve self-diagnosed myself as being someone who “feels” things harder/more than normal people do. So, I’m prone to funks at times.
Anyway–it can’t be just me, but do you ever get in melancholy moods for no reason and just want to listen to sad music? I do sometimes, and tonight I just wanted to put on the saddest, most heart-wrenching songs I could think of and get in the bath. So I did! Not because my life is horrible, or my marriage is on the rocks. Just because I’ve been a little “ho-hum” for the past couple days (and can’t shake a sinus headache on top of it all). So, if you do this, what are you go-to sad songs that just make you almost feel better by listening to them? I’m not talking about happy upbeat songs you use to help your mood, I’m talking about songs that sound so exquisitely sad or have emotional lyrics that are totally in line with your shitty mood but actually make you feel better by commiserating with them?
Tonight, mine were:
“Turning Tables” by Adele, “I and Love and You” by the Avett Brothers, “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Greg Laswell, and “You’re An Angel and I’m Gonna Cry” by Chris Thile.
Melancholy mission accomplished!!
