Friday List...Sad Songs Say So Much
A while back when I had a brutal case of the blues, a friend made a mix CD for me called "The Saddest Songs in the World/Wallow Mix." In honor of that CD (which is still one of my favorites, blue or not), I'm posting my five of my all-time favorite sitting-in-the-dark-with-teddy-bears-and-knives songs. You know the ones: You play them when you're reading those letters you keep in the back of your closet, wondering why you ever broke up with whatshisname in the first place, and certain that no one else will love you that much again.
Not that I do that.
Wallow Mix '05:
I Grieve, Peter Gabriel
I'm Not in Love, 10cc
Hurt, Nine Inch Nails
Better Man, Pearl Jam
I've Been Loving You Too Long, Otis Redding
The truth is, I love sad songs even when I'm happy. Sad songs make me happy. Weird? Yeah, but I'll bet you have some mood music of your own. Care to share?
