Crooked little soul...

I've said it before: listening to sad music makes me feel happy. As twisted as it sounds, dwelling on disaster and heartbreak and tragedy uplifts my soul and fills me with joy. It's been a long time since I changed that play list, so I'm updating my soundtrack for sitting in the dark with teddy bears and knives. Links to free MP3 downloads included; wallow at your own risk.

KLo's Joyful Noise Mix
Tomorrow Never Comes, Juliana Hatfield
Hold On, Tom Waits.
I Want You (Costello cover), Fiona Apple
There Was a River, For Stars
The Greatest, Cat Power
Honk if You're Lonely, Silver Jews
Hate Me, Blue October
Breathless, Better Than Ezra
Too Much Space, Lisa Germano

On the way home you feel it there
Cause your heart needs to be somewhere
But you wake up
To too much space again.

~Lisa Germano

  1. I can't believe you didn't have even one Lyle Lovett song on that list!

    How 'bout "Nobody Knows Me"... or "She's Leaving Me Because She Really Wants To"...

  2. TJ - Indeed.

    Marcheline - I forgot about Lyle! I also should have included Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt."
