I Love Sad Songs

    When I'm sad, unconciously,

    I love listening sad songs. I think that's kind of instict because what I need is to release those feelings. It is not bad to set our soul free. This is one of my favourite songs. Breathe me by Sia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0QBzX7zZBw

    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 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.

    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.

    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 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...

    Love is like a sad song.

    There is so many meanings too it. It makes you weak inside because you always feel that you don't have a place in their heart when they say you do. You want to believe it but you can't.

    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...
