Let the music heal.
In light of the slump I’ve been in recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of angsty and upbeat music. It helps sometimes, and I figured as a further therapeutic effort, I’d go ahead and share this with you. The concept, I admit, is a little primary, but I’m thinking along the lines of an Internet-style intervention.
So here are a few tunes I’ve been listening to a lot lately, in the first installment of a kind of loser anthems collection.
This is perfectly indicitive of the kind of dark, brooding music that anyone needs when they’re hurting like this. It’s draining.
“So much for the past year… I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from your eyes. Oh, your eyes…”
This is a bit of an exception; for the most part, any music reminding me of my situation or loneliness (City and Colour, Elliot Smith) has been hidden away with the knives. But this is a great song, and it does help a bit.
I hope everyone else out there that I love and care about is okay right now.
