Sad songs

I love sad songs way more than it's probably healthy to.

Sad songs, and in particular, sad ballads.

As heartbreaking as the lyrics often are, I find a lot of comfort in them. Maybe it's a reminder that other people get sad too, or some form of emotional outlet. I don't know, but about 80% of the time I think I'd rather listen to sad songs than happier ones. There's usually more meaning encased in them, I think that's what it is. You can tell when the words are personal and you can often empathise with the artist or band. And, I don't know, I think you can learn a lot about yourself in sadder songs. It's difficult to explain, but anyway, I thought I'd share a few of my favourite sad songs, because as miserable as it may sound, I really love them.
