Even hot girls get sad too, okay 😞
I’m the type that when I’m sad/heartbroken/depressed I like to totally and wholly lean into for at least a few days.
But after that it’s time to suck it up and bounce back.
This playlist is for those first few days. Those days where you can literally feel the weight of your heart in your chest, when you cry in public because you just can’t help it, when it feels like your soul will never recover.
This time I’m gonna do things a lil different and go through each song and basically explain it + why I included it.
You Get Me So High – literally one of my favorite songs of all times. Every. Single. Word. is just so, so relatable.
K – your head looks unsettled, Child. This song pairs perfectly with a blunt and the type of introspection you do after getting high to get away from that feeling of wanting to die. TMI?
Daddy Issues – we’ve all got them.
Acquainted – not necessarily super sad, but I swear the Weeknd is singing about me in this song so it’s a nice little reminder to myself that I’m toxic af and have a lot to work on :////
Thick and Thin – this song is a not so subtle reminder that sometimes we’re NOT bigger than our mistakes and that part of life is realizing that WE don’t get to make that choice about ourselves for other people.
Nights Like This – ON NIGHTS LIKE THIS SHORTY I CAN’T HELP BUT THINK OF US!! Enough said.
Faking It – we are not okay 🤣
Without You – one a scale from one to Lana Del Rey how sad are you??
Pretty When You Cry – we cry so much because we’re pretty when we cry. Peak Lana, a slow, depressing vibe.
Homemade Dynamite – I know this song is supposed to be about a party, but to me it’s more about fucking up all your relationships with your own personal brand of homemade dynamite. Tragic.
Liability – for when you realize that you’re the difficult one, but that it’s also okay because a big part of growing up is coming to terms with the idea that sometimes you have to be your own best friend. Warning: this song is the most painful song in the playlist.
Hard Feelings/Loveless – ultimate break up song. Don’t say I didnt warn you.
Sober II (Melodrama) – coming to terms with how fucking depressing life is once those fleeting moments of happiness are gone. Gotta wonder why we bother?
I Don’t Wanna Love You Anymore – self explanatory.
Malibu Nights – I got way too much time to be this hurt. This song is the epitome of being alone at night with just your thoughts and your sad girl emotions.
Writer in the Dark – an ode to all the girls that feel things so, so strongly.
Taking Responsibility – bruh, this song gives me that feeling in my chest, ya know. Where tf is home?
But remember, we only give ourselves a finite amount of time to be sad, okay?? Let’s not let the shit show consume us.
