Rather than be normal and list you uplifting and inspiring songs to listen to when you’re sad, I thought I’d make a list of my favourite ballads and slower, sad songs. Not only because I prefer them over any louder, more upbeat songs but I also think that, secretly, when you’re feeling down you quite like to wallow in a large amount of emotion when it comes to listening to music.
As you’ll be able to see, as well as modern songs from more recent rock bands, I’ve also included what I think to be classic, timeless and beautiful songs written by classic rock artists that I grew up listening to.
Hope you enjoy and somehow these eventually provide you with a sense of comfort.
Sidenote: The sound of rain can be incredibly soothing and when you play it on a loop quietly behind songs it works a treat. Try listening to ‘Wasting my young years’ by London Grammar and click this https://rainymood.com/
