    And All That Could Have Been - Nine Inch Nails

    I believe in torturing myself with sad songs. I feed the sadness as much as I can and feel it to the highest extent I can, I savor it and experience it fully... then I move on. I believe that all emotions should be experienced to the fullest. One of my favorite sad songs to...

    Cutting Crew - (I just) Died in your arms

    tonight This song is torture for me. I yearn so badly to feel the passion and exhilaration of being with someone you cherish dearly during the most intimate and vulnerable of times. I don't get to feel that way anymore, and I just feel hollow and broken as a result. Each time I...

    Justin Nozuka - Save Him

    Now, THAT is a depressing song... "Save Him" [Verse 1] She loves him more He loves her more, Seems like they won't ever let each other go, Laughing and kissing it's a match made in heaven Behind the rings on their fingers Imprints the ink deep in the inner That has stained...

    I walk by colourful sidewalk,

    Children with buckets of Pastel chalk. And I thought of you. My love I thought of you. So I walked until the sun went down, I thought that none else was around. Until I saw you. My love Until I saw you. My black, white life turns to colour. But baby, I'm with another. When you...

    Sad Songs Help Me Heal

    they help me cry out the pain so to speak. Having been rejected by everyone, i have no one to talk to and thus need some way to vent and listening to sad music helps me pour out my pain!!!!

    Yes, I Do.

    It seems, when I'm sad I want to be sadder, so I play sad songs. And then I start to cry, but I keep sad songs playlist on, that I could cry more. I keep crying, and then I play the most dangerous songs - the ones that bring memories about my first love, break ups. I torture...

    I don't know if it's specifically sad songs,

    but rather songs are starting to appear sad to me. I know that my current emotional state is a major factor, and I'm trying to look beyond that. I find that regardless of genre that songs about loss, pain, unrequited love, and loneliness are becoming more frequent than I care to...

    When ever I'm sad, so most of the time.

    I always torture myself with sad, relative songs.. Which make me feel even worse... Wether it's a way of coping or to get my emotions out or both?! I don't know, does this happen to others as well ??

    I've been listening to sad songs late at night

    for a while now. Originally I was using them to sort of unwind at the end of the week, and I used them to reflect on life. But lately I've been using these sad songs to torture and depress myself, and I'm not really sure why I do it. I mean my life right now, is pretty good, so...

    I Must Like It

    Cloud Cult makes me miserable and Cursive makes me feel hysterically sad. But they are two of my favorite artists, whose music I play often. There's something about pain in music that really affects me.

    Back to December by Taylor Swift This song

    tears me up. I close my eyes and remember the day Avery left me. Is it too much to want her to come back to me? To anybody that wants to tell me they are so sorry and how much they care do me one thing first. Listen to this song and put yourself in my shoes for 4 mins and 54...

    It's What I Know

    I think most of the music I listen to is pretty sad. My favourite songs are normally messed up love songs and the like. I have never really been a happy person, and I think listenening to sad songs has been a way of relating and expressing. It doesn't really bother me, sad songs...

    I just can't stop listening to depressive songs. For example, Anathema's songs, of course after the doom metal phase are extremely depressive and sad. I went to their concert once and all I could do was cry because they all touch our feelings very deeply. Another one, Radiohead...
