I’ve always wanted to get into more genres of music. I’ve tried to embrace Soul, R&B, Country, and some Rock, but have failed to actually digest any of it. I am, however, quite partial to Pop, Alternative Rock, Indie and old school Hip Hop. I can switch from Britney Spears to Oasis to Elliot Smith and back to the Wu-Tang Clan with ease.
With that said, I do have a special preference when it comes to listening to music. I’m totally bounded to depressing indie and alternative rock ballads. I don’t know why and I don’t know how, but it’s like crack cocain for me. I can listen to it for long periods of time without feeling emotionally depleted or lethargic.
Maybe it’s the writer in me? Or maybe, inside my bubbly exterior, I have a tormented soul that could only permeate outside if I listen to sappy songs about someone’s life being pregnant with anguish. Eh. I don’t really know.
Nonetheless, i’m addicted to this brand of music. I’ve been addicted to it since sixth grade and this aspect of me will never change. Anyways, i’ve compiled a semi-comprehensive list of depressing indie and alternative rock tracks that i’m sure can lull someone into a gloomy trance. Hopefully?
32.) Fuel-“Bad day”
35.) Fuel-“Empty Spaces”
39.) The Doves-“M62 Song”
42.) Nada Surf-“Inside of Love”
43.) Norfolk & Western-” The shortest stare”
Ofcourse, this is not a complete list. I am always receptive into hearing new stuff (albeit depressing) and if any of you have any suggestions for me. Please comment below.
