Post-Script

Inspired by the last post, for anyone who really needs/wants to waste some time this weekend, CHALLENGE: please go through your music libraries, come up with a suitable collection of songs for the playlist title "Sadness" (description: good music to cry to for a while), and then post it to your journal or in the comments here.

[Quick snapshot reminder of what my list looks like.]

I haven't gotten around to Volume II (stuff-that-only-lives-on-CDs and/or 2009 discoveries-on) yet.
And half the artists are still cut off on this list, yes.



There is really, really no limit to how many you should put on there. Volume I of my list takes up 3.5 hours, personally. Or you may be normal and have way less sad music in general. I just want to know what you guys listen to, whether it is resplendent with explanations like The Music List, or just a list of titles and artists.

Here is my I'M NOT CRYING; IT'S JUST BEEN RAINING ON MY FACE playlist

Kris Allen | I Need To Know
Feel like I'm trying to breathe under water
Trying to climb but I keep falling farther
Will you take my hand?


Unloco | Texas
Sometimes I lie awake in bed
Thinking about the things you said
So lost for words, so lost to tell you how I feel
So terrified of changing what I thought was real


Unloco | Watching Me Slip
Look away, you're watchin me as I slip away
'Cause everything I know just falls apart
Now it's me as I slip away
'Cause everything I know, it just falls apart
It's 'cause I'm not enough to bring you down
I'm not enough to bring you down
I'm not enough to make you happy
I'm not enough to make you stay


Ben Harper | Walk Away
We've tried the goodbye
So many days
We walk in the same direction
So that we could never stray
They say if you love somebody
Then you have got to set them free
But I would rather be locked to you
Than live in this pain and misery
They say time will
Make all this go away
But it's time that has taken my tomorrows
And turned them into yesterdays


Counting Crows | Colorblind
I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded, and unfolded, and unfolding


Greg Laswell | Off I Go (STILL MAKES ME THINK OF GEORGE/IZZIE AND HOW I'D RATHER PULL MY OWN HEART OUT OF MY CHEST THAN WATCH THAT ONE FINALE.)
Loose ends, they tangle down
And then take flight
But never tie me down
But never tie me down
Off I go
Where I fall is where I land


Johnny Cash | Hurt (DON'T WATCH THE VIDEO, IT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO DIE.)
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way


Something Corporate | Globes and Maps
I wanna hang onto something
That won't break away or fall apart
Like the pieces of my heart
And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they chart your way back home

Oh, yay! Lyric snippets! Making a beeline for my buddy Kris Allen while I admire all this glorious sadness. And I have to admit, I may have been all "Johnny Cash? That is not really in my wheelhouse," but I gave it a whirl, and...NBD, just watching the video I was explicitly warned not watch and having an Arrested Development "I don't know what I expected" moment.

Listening to it sixteen more times anyway. Maybe I should follow this up with Grey's Anatomy memories to lighten the mood.
