I have to say, "If I Was Your Girlfriend" by Prince makes me sad (sometimes even makes me cry.)

Bonus Question: Favorite song by the band or artist you mentioned?
Bonus Question 2: Have you had a good day so far?
Bonus Question 3: How Long was it since you've had your last headache?
#3
Your Hand in Mine-Explosions in the Sky

It's more of a bring down the tempo type of song, but it reminds me of a lot of people that I miss.

Can't youtube it at the moment, but go search it, you won't be disappoint.

Ghost of Tom Joad - Bruce Springsteen, always reminds me that some people have it a lot worse than me.

Bonus:
1) The same one I mentioned.
2) It was ok, thanks. Yours?
3) It was lastnight actually.

Luna/tonight tonight - Smashing Pumpkins
Down in a hole - Alice In Chains
High and Dry - Radiohead

those songs don't necessarily make me sad but they make me feel something extremely deep that I can't quite explain, and thats what counts.
Follow me into the desert as thirsty as you are
I shot my love today would you cry for me
I lost my head again would you lie for me
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
I lost my head again would you

songs dont ever really make me sad or happy. im not easily manipulated by music.
.

I have no opinion on this matter.
#22
My Immortal - Evanescence

No matter how happy you are if you blast it loud whilst you're on your own, its a very deep and depressing song.

I sometimes find Broken Wings by Flyleaf has the same effect but sometimes I'm in such a good mood it can make me happy.

The only thing that matters in music these days is money - genuinely talented artists are passed over entirely or corraled into making non-offensive, non-threatening average music that sells.

You stole mine
This one always gets to me because it was the last song my mother recommended to me before she died. Incidently I played it on repeat in the week leading up to her death, and now that's all I ever think about when I hear the song.

But since I have to think of another one (jks)

The Drugs Don't Work - The Verve
