    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...

    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...

    I don't know why but I would

    rather blast a sad song in my car and have a good cry before I change to something more upbeat.

    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...

    Me

    Soooooo this is most definitely my addiction. I do not do drugs, I am not a drunk, and am too young to gamble...my drug of choice is sad songs. I don't know why, and it's probably-like most addictions-not healthy. But like any addict, I totally deny everything.    Listening to...

    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...

    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...

    Sad

    I love sad songs when I'm reveling in my sadness. You know when you're selfishly sad only to like it? I know you all know what I mean. Usually I pull out Oasis or Ben Folds or Better than Ezra. Sometimes I'll watch My So Called Life instead or listen to childhood songs.

    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...

    One of the Most Incredible ...

    One of the most incredible distinctive features human beings have is the hability to mind-travel back in time. Sad songs take me back to events I did or said something bad and felt guilty later. These are the moments that define you, not your victories.
