Songs for when you are sad

116 posts in this topic

I remember one episode where Leo talks about having a playlist for when he is sad.  I always find listening to sad music makes me feel better.  It’s like facing the emotions head on and allowing them to wash over me.

Here are some songs that I like to listen to when I feel down:

Love this topic, and I totally agree with the power of sad songs. But I feel that there is one really important aspect of this that is not mentioned here, which is that music is deeply personal. Music that somehow links us to our past, the depths of our subconscious mind and the forgotten memories of our inner child is extremely powerful because they already hold certain energetic patterns and traumas in our body desperately waiting to be felt, re-experienced and released. Apart from finding new music, trying to find and rediscovering those songs that made you cry as a child, is a great source and potential for healing and transformation. If you're interested about the relationship between spirituality, personal transformation and Music you can read about it in this article, called 'Soul Resonance and Music'.

"Sad" music is so powerful IMO because it reminds us that suffering is the human condition, something so much larger than just "my experience."

I'm especially blown away when they don't have lyrics (or in this case, the lyrics are ancient scripture and we can't make sense of them in the moment) :P 

Sometimes a piece just screams pain through pitch and rhythm alone, and, well, WOW.

"Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us."

Just read the YouTube comments under this video while listening. You might cry!

Never understood this thing about wanting to feel better when sad. I fucking live for sadness. Even before awakening, sadness was my favorite emotion. It’s just absolutely magical.

Maybe melancholy is a better word? I’m a very happy person. Always have been. I’ve never been depressed. I see sadness as the opposite of joy (which I also love), not the opposite of happiness.

@The0Self I feel that so hard

Sadness is the epitome of beauty. Is it any wonder why we cry during peak experiences?

True happiness has no opposite.
