Triple Sadness

December 22nd - A Song You Listen to When You're Sad

   When I am already sad I listen to slightly different songs then when I want to feel sad. That may sound weird to some of you but sometimes its good to be sad its therapeutic. Anyway when I am sad instead of trying to listen to happy, sunshiny stuff (that usually makes me want to strangle someone at that precise moment) I generally listen to really sad songs. This amplifies my sadness and normally helps me get through it faster. There are a lot of songs I go to for this process but the first one is usually this song. When someone you love is hurting and there is absolutely nothing you can do to help ease their pain its is completely heartbreaking. This song always reminds me of a past love that had a lot of issues that I just couldn't do anything about. These issues eventually made it impossible for us to work as a couple but it didn't stop me from loving her. Stepping aside and watching the person you love move on without you is never easy. Even  when you know its the best thing possible for both of you.

Joey - Concrete Blonde

   That song always make me move on to this next song. Its an oldie but a goodie.When the person you love is gone how else can you feel but sad?

Ain't No Sunshine (When She's Gone) - Bill Withers

   After this song finishes I usually have one more prerequisite I go to. Its another older song which is part of why I think of it at this time. But it was also the song I shared with my first girlfriend. She dumped me "because her father told her too" in the summer between my junior and senior year of high school. She was obviously devastated by our break up since I saw her riding in an acquaintance's car not even a full week later. This song makes me think of our time together.

Stand By Me - Ben E. King

   Well that about wraps it up for today. Thanks for stopping by to give my blog a glance. I hope your day is filled with awesomeness!

  1. Awww... Stand by Me!

    I am also one to listen to sad songs when I am in a sad mood. My sad songs lean more toward rock music though, but I love your choices!
