    Sometimes I Do.  When ...

    Sometimes I do.  When I'm feeling down, the last thing I want to hear is some happy, upbeat song, so I tend to match my music to my mood.

    I Like Depressing Music.

    Its not something i do on purpose. Though it seems that way. Current music playing in the background: All I need - Radiohead. Its kind of like i get trapped in this symphony of tragic beautiful music that is so sadistically satisfying.

    Screamo

    in a study they found that when someone is yelling at you your brain turns off. when someone whispers your brain engages.my theory that the screaming turns off my brain so i can push all of lifes problems aside and just enjoy the blasts of bmth in my head.

    skillet- the last night • Coldplay- the scientist • bring me the horizon- don't go • slipknot- snuff • you me at six- crash • mayday parade- terrible things • for all those sleeping-mark my words Yeah, I can't remember them all but this is most of them anyway. Xx

    Im adopted. And always in my mind is that question "Why did my parents give me up?" What is so wrong with me? Maybe they didnt have money, maybe they didnt give me up and I was taken by social services. I dont know why they gave me away, and it frustrates me. How can I know who...

    depressing music doesn’t exactly make you sad.

    It actually helps to view things much clear. Like someone smart said, music is what a person cannot describe in words. depressing lyrics have emotion that know how to trigger you in that right spot and make you realize the truth. and after you cry, you feel strong once again.

    It Fits In More With My Tempermant

    Whenever I listen to depressing music, it somehow makes me feel closer to myself and my surroundings. Whenever I listen to "happy" music, it just reminds me of how much of a f*** up I am, which in turn leaves me feeling worse about myself.

    Love The Downers

    Alpha | Air | Radiohead | Built To Spill | Morrissey | IVY ... 'to name a few'. There's a time for it. Play it for a while and the happy & more upbeat music is that much more happy and upbeat ... for me, anyway.

    Touching Your Soul..

    I do think that when a good song is sung with the emotion, passion & feeling that it deserves, you can possibly get to open a heart or an eye or an ear so that others can, for just a moment, use the song as a window to really see, feel & understand something about others in a way...

    Depressing Music

    i love all kinds of music but something about depressing sad music puts me in a good mood. Weird but true, maybe it puts my reasons for being sad in perspective.I don't have near the problems as the singers of the best depressing songs.

    It'S The Only Thing That Feels Right

    Sad music is the only thing I listen to lately, without realizing it those are the songs that I choose to listen to. I guess I do it to fit my mood, cause happy songs certainly wouldn't fit me right now. Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm not the only one whose world is falling...

    Behind The Sadness

    Depressing music...it makes my heart swell and my eyes grow sad, but behind the depression is a hint of a relieved smile because it resonates with me and reminds me that I'm not alone. Someone else feels the way that I do and created the words and sounds to make me feel alive in...
