you know, that one song you always think about when you want to let the day's frustrations out.

the one that gets you right there.

what song is it, and how does it make you feel?


mine has got to be Sparks by Coldplay or The Art Teacher by Rufus Wainwright.

these songs feel like that tear sweater from that one Spongebob episode 

tear sweather

Dancing with your Ghost by Sasha Sloan. It’s one of those songs, where you just lie on your back on your bed staring at the ceiling, zoning out and wondering where everything went wrong in your life. I usually would then listen to Train Wreck by James Arthur after that lol

the sound, by swans.
yeah swans are a bit dubious. but I've been listening to that long ass song as a weird comfort thing for a long, long time. something about the way you can get swept up in it.

-The Palingenesis album by Nebelung when I need to keep going or get back up again. The whole album is like a progressive journey that makes me feel hopeful/more grounded once I get to the other side.


-Í Tokuni by Eivør when I am feeling isolated and under extreme stress. When you can't talk to your family about anything and you are realizing the magnitude of volunteering as an election officer in 2020 and just need to let it all out because the future is terrifying. 

-Alone in the Dark by Flaer Smin when I haven't spoken to anybody in days/weeks and want it to stay that way.

It depends a lot on what caused the sadness but my depression song has to be, Hurt, by Johnny Cash.

“I am constantly trying to communicate something incommunicable, to explain something inexplicable, to tell about something I only feel in my bones and which can only be experienced in those bones. Basically it is nothing other than this fear we have so often talked about, but fear spread to everything, fear of the greatest as of the smallest, fear, paralyzing fear of pronouncing a word, although this fear may not only be fear but also a longing for something greater than all that is fearful.” - Franz Kafka
