Play me a sad song, ‘cause that’s what I wanna hear 英会話・英語 アミック


I usually troll the main page of Wikipedia to find inspiration for my weekly blog post. Today, I felt totally uninspired while clicking through articles. I’ve been working on a list of sad songs, because sometimes you just want to listen to a sad song and have a good cry. Sadness can be evoked by different things in different people, but some things are universally tragic: heartbreak, death, rejection, loss, loneliness, the list goes on and on. What I’ve noticed about my top favorite sad songs is that despite having an upbeat melody, the lyrics tug at the your heart in a way that only truly poignant words can. 

Manu Chao- Dia Luna Dia Pena (“Moon Day Pain Day”)

Radiohead- How to Disappear Completely

No sad song list would be complete without a song from Radiohead.

Florence + The Machine – Ship to Wreck

Kings of Convenience- Toxic Girl

Scandinavian melancholy at its finest.

Sufjan Stevens – A Loverless Bed (Without Remission)


Of course, these all are open to interpretation. What makes me want to curl up in a ball and wail won’t necessarily make you feel the same way 😛 What is your favorite sad song?
