My Personal 'Sad Music' Playlist


We all have one whether we realize it or not: A Personal Sad Music Playlist. It's the songs that we are drawn to when we are feeling down. I feel like I am taking a risk showing my list of sad songs, as if I'm opening up a whole new way to be vulnerable. However, I also think that a list like this could do a lot of good. I just want everyone to know that it's totally normal and okay to have a list of sad songs that they feel personally attached to. 

1. Shawn Mendes - "Life Of The Party"

Would you believe me if I told you that I went to high school with Shawn Mendes? I mean, I never met him... or knew he existed until he got famous. However, I probably passed him in the hall without realizing it. 

2. Lukas Graham - "7 Years"

I have played this so many times! It is my 'go to' for when I am sad. I'm pretty serious... as soon as my boyfriend starts hearing the first three seconds of this song he knows I must REALLY be sad. 

3. gnash - "i hate u, i love u ft. olivia o'brien"

This one is a new addition to my personal moody playlist. You need to add a new one every once in a while.

4. Ben Cocks - "So Cold"

"I loved and I loved and I lost you." Everyone can relate to this one. 

5. Ed Sheeran - "Bloodstream [Official]"

This song is more than a 'sad day' song to me. This is more of an 'I've been depressed for a while now' song. 

6. Ben Cocks - "So Cold"

This song has some bad memories attached to it for me... however, i still find my self listening to it everyone now and again.

7. Andrew Belle - "In my veins" lyrics.

"Nothing goes as planned, Everything will break." 

I am just quite simply in love with the mood of this song. 

8. "Demons" - Imagine Dragons

9. Imagine Dragons - "Bleeding Out"

I mostly just really like Imagine Dragons. 

10. Chord Overstreet - "Hold On"

I really really like this one. The lyric video is really well done as well.

Hello. Nice to meet you! How are you? Hmm... this feels like a really one sided conversation... why don't you follow me on social media so I can get to know you too!

I started blogging about two years ago and my collection of blogs and articles is getting pretty impressive. I’ve taken online classes for writing, and even some classes about the art of blogging itself. It would be really awesome if you joined the adventure, and maybe even helped me think of what to write about next. If you would like to submit some feedback or ideas, you can always tweet me on twitter.

Thank you for reading my article. Would it be ok if I ask another favour though? Would it be okay if you share this on your Facebook page or Twitter? If you can't share, there is a tiny little donate box at the bottom too. No pressure though, just thought I would mention.
