    Four Walls And A Radio

    Oh my goodness, I dont know what it is about a sad song that lightens up my mood, but only after i listen to it about a million times. I'm the type of person that can listen to a song over and over and over and cry her eyes out while singing it. There were times in my life...

    I will follow you into the dark- death cab

    for cutie, Not very many people understands why I like this song. It just has a very valuable meaning to me, I was my best friends favorite song, she'd sing it, she was an amazing singer, she committed suicide a little over 2 years ago. I cry everytime I listen to it.

    This may not seem sad to others

    but the melody is kind of sad to me. Anyway, I watched the Jersey Boys last week so I've been listening to this song a lot lately. This kind of music brings back memories. Today's music can learn something from this kind of music. This is real music. None of this pop nonsense we...

    Sad songs are calming,

    but they also make me excited. I think sadness is the most honest emotion that's put into songs. I like hearing the openness and vulnerability in them. Not just songs either. I LOVE sad stories (fictional). It's actually quite hard for me to be emotionally engaged in stories...

    Happiness Is A Sad Song

    Happiness is indeed a sad song. When I'm truly sad, it messes me up worse to hear a happy song than a sad one. To be reminded of what you can't ever have, to see how very little you can now relate to those words that once sang with your own heart, the song betrayed you, taunts...

    Broken Open

    In my darkest of days, this song comforts me and lets me cry at the same time.  I feel understood and accepted.  I have dreamed often of having that one person say these words to me, to let me crash and burn, to hold me in their arms, where I am safe....I don't need anyone else...

    I Love Them

    Mostly because lately it's a lot easier to relate to them than to cheerful songs. In a way i feel that sad songs are a lot closer to me than other ones, they usually are full of emotions and i like that. it makes me feel human and it keeps me away from one of my biggest fears...

    Kiss It Better By He Is We

    This is one of my favorite songs right now. The song tells a story about a man and a woman who are in love. His lover gets shot in the heart and she tells him to kiss it better because she's not ready to die because she'll have to leave him. He avenges the killer and gets put in...
