Ever have a day where it’s raining, it’s cold, it’s grey, and all you want to do is cry? That’s the kind of day I’m having.

I’ve been trying to hunt down a new car insurance company so I can attempt to save some money each month. That is proving to be much more of a struggle than I anticipated. I then had an ever so delightful conversation with my ex about our son’s upcoming birthday and such. I ended up calling him a harpy and that he was emotionally traumatized. I came home, made myself some spicy chicken stir fry and watched the last episode of Charmed and got sobby.

Speaking of sobby, I am creating a cry playlist. Why? Because I want to emotionally torture myself every so often. Besides, I look all dramatic when I cry (well visine cry whatever). What songs make you physically cry and why?

I need a hug. Oh and a vanilla latte! I think I shall go read my beloved photography books for a bit.

Thank you Thomas for giving me the link to the Free Hugs video! It put a smile on my face!

While I will neither confirm nor deny having such a playlist myself, I can say that I have been told that such playlists and variations thereof must exist, and therefore they must exist for good reason.

They say it’s healthy and good and all that kind of thing.

Again, neither confirming nor denying.  Just saying.

Yes, I so know these days. I try not to let them controll me. But just trying sometimes …

I hear ya. We all need days like that. It’s so cathartic to get it all out, especially when your enviroment is cooperating.

Depressing playlists are my favorite, but I don’t have mine anymore. So sad. BUT Jimmy Eat World’s “My Sundown” has been killing me lately.

well, if you really want to go for it, try:
radiohead – let down, no suprises, exit music for a film, how to dissapear completely, and fake plastic trees.

don mclean – crossroads

hallejuah – jeff buckley

everybody hurts – rem….

but what i find works best is putting on something like Sigur Ros or Sufjan Stevns, especially Illinoise or Songs for Christmas – that banjo will sing a little sunshine back into your life:) the best winter music i have ever heard because it made me think it was summer.

There are plenty of songs that make me burst in an emotional fit of tears. But which song depends entirely on my mood preceding the sadness. So I can’t give you any certain titles of songs. Just turn on the radio and listen closely to lyrics and such.
Good luck with the car insurance bit.

It’s not usually songs which make me cry, because I don’t personally empathise with artists.  One song which makes me sad, is on the Shrek soundtrack, called “Halleluja” by Rufus Wainwright.
