The ultimate sad music post

I love sad songs, who doesn’t??! 😀 There has actually been a recent study that showed that people that listen to sad songs feel better. I’ve been meaning to put together a song list of sad songs that I like, but I’ve put it off because I have so many songs and they range from childish pop to metal. I’ve decided to create several different sad music song lists so you can find songs that caters to that very particular sad feeling that you want to experience! Enjoy! I could go on forever adding songs (especially more Ingrid Michaelson songs) but it’s 11:15 pm and I got work tomorrow so I think this will just have to do.

I’m a shitty human being and I’m sad. This song list only has two song but the songs are so powerful that I deemed that two was enough.

Hate me – Blue October

Breathe me – Sia

Sad songs about love/relationships

9 crimes – Damien Rice

Corner of your heart – Ingrid Michaelson

Famous Blue Raincoat – Leonard Cohen

Unsuffer Me – Lucinda Williams

Sad songs that holds a promise of a better future:

Die Alone – Ingrid Michaelson

Be OK – Ingrid Michaelson

I’m weird and sad

Creep – Radiohead, of course. I know some people think it’s been done to death but its a good song.
