I have realized why I like music that most people call sad or suicidal. Its not that I am a gloomy person, because the majority of my perspective is optimistic. It stems from being a child who always kept her emotions inside, because I thought crying was a weakness. If I felt like crying I would hide under my bed and cry so no one can see. When I first watched The Last Unicorn(I still have the original VHS) at age 4, I realized how beautiful sadness was. I cant explain what I felt at 4 years old, but it changed me.
Sadness I used to ignore. Ive matured to appreciate it for its properties and wisdom. I find it beautiful for its "Realness" it doesnt lie. It reminds me that I am human and alive. I respect people who are brave enough to show their pain, then someone who hids behind a shallow smile.
So check out a few of my favorite Sad Songs:
"I dream of towns when you were mine"
"I miss you when your gone"
"They say every man goes black in his heart"
"Got nobody on my side, surely that aint right"
to list a few...
