Songs for wallowing: Heartbreak Kid, a mixtape

I was watching a TV show earlier today which reminded me of this playlist I made a few months ago with a text and everything that I had never shared.

In the show, the girl, who had recently broken up with the dude, was trying to stay busy 24/7 in order to move on while people were telling her she should sit with a pint of ice cream for a little bit. She said she didn’t want to be that kind of girl who acts as if her life is over just because of a guy, which is a sentiment I’ve shared one too many times.

But anyway, this isn’t a relationship page, it’s a music one. And although music & feelings are forever intertwined, I’ll move on to the playlist bit now.

It was another Friday that inspired a playlist…we were listening to a re-worked track at work which had turned from a happy tune with sad lyrics to a sad tune with sad lyrics!

While the previous playlist had been all about happiness and inspiration, this one is pretty wrist-slitting, I’m afraid.

But that’s life, hey! Some days we eat salad and go for a run, other days we eat pizza and binge-watch Netflix. And there’s nothing wrong with wallowing in your sadness sometimes…if we were constantly happy, life wouldn’t be as exciting (although I’m pretty cool with some chilled times if life feels like sending some my way…#justsayin).
I could’ve just combined The OC and Dawson’s Creek‘s soundtracks and thrown in a bit of Coldplay with a dash of Iron & Wine. But I didn’t. This mixtape’s got all kinds of heart-wrenching lyrics and melodies to see you through your blue phase. Apparently Mars was retrograde when this came about. That explains!

 

Ps: if your “blue phase” seems to be lasting a tad bit too long, please seek help! ❤️
Ps [2]: if you just need a bit of cheering up after this, here’s that old booster playlist I mentioned before.
