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.

I totally have to point you toward this cover of Maps (as used in a really really great Barney/Robin fanvideo!) just because it really delights me how much peppier it is. Covers are such awesome business.

Aaaaand OH MAN, the Kids cover, I know! I discovered it through this Amy & River fanvid, which just makes it all the more poignant. I wrote a big ol' angsty Amy & River fanfic awhile ago, in the heights of all the s6 weirdness with that storyline, and as a result my emotions are always just going to be a mess when that's on my mind. And such gorgeously heartwrenching songs do not help a bit!

(Also, I totally just glanced at your lj interests to make sure any of this would be relevant to you at all, so. Hopefully this comment isn't too weird and ramblicious!)

Ooh thank you, I adore covers (and Robin/Barney guh, hearts in my eyes)! In this case I think I prefer the original, there's just something more dynamic about it but I like this version a lot too, I love it when covers re-invent songs in a new way rather than just doing it the same way as the original.

Ah wow, that is appropriate for them! I'm not a huge fan of Eleven/s6/River (I kind of hate River, but I adore Amy!) but that song really does suit them. I really wish I was as into the new new series as most people are, but I just ... can't seem to get there. I think I'm still hung up on Ten. :/

Hah, so glad I'm not the only one who does that! XD For future references: I'm a TV junkie - everything is relevant to me.
And please, if anything it wasn't weird or ramblicious enough! I mean, look at this one? That's how it's done yo!

Yesssssss! Really creative covers are always so fun to find.

And aw, man, Eleven era Who! Moffatttttttttttt; fie upon him! Eleven's my Doctor of choice (though Ten was GREAT, especially when romping about space and time with Donna), and I love Eleven's whole gang so much, but dear lord, the series six writing was so thankless that it's like I don't even know how to respond to it. It's reached a point where I kinda just have to love everybody's face and pay exactly no mind to what is actually going on, because AAAAACK! ACK!

Donna was my FAVE. DW is the one show (NO REALLY, THE *ONE* SHOW) where I'm mostly UGH NO SHIPPING, so I loved her and the Doctor's platonic relationship. And that she was slightly older than the usual girlies he hangs with, who always crush on him. Donna was the best. <3
And yeah, ACK = accurate description of s6. Ugh, Moffat, I had such high hopes for you! I mean, you made me miss RTD! RTD! Damn you for that, damn you to hell! *Shakefist*

(Hee, that icon is awesome.)
