It’s about to get real emo up in here.
Sebastien Grainger – Love Can Be So Mean (buy)
When I’m upset music doesn’t usually help. It will only intensify whatever misery I’m already working with. But it’s very present. I heard this song in my head almost immediately the last time I felt acute, intense pain:
Cat Stevens – Trouble (buy)
And while I’m already feeling bad, I might as well dwell for a minute:
A.C. Newman – The Heartbreak Rides (buy)
Sam Cooke – Tennessee Waltz (buy)
The Clash – Every Little Bit Hurts (buy)
Cake – Friend Is a Four Letter Word (buy)
And now I move on, and forward, which is the silver lining in every bummer heights high experience. Besides, it’s only feelings.
F.O.C. – Hurt Feelings (buy)
And when the breeze picks up, it’s really nice outside.
