Why shouldn't we? They don't actually make us feel genuine sadness the same way our brother being killed with a brick would, they just sound sad. If anything we empathise with them and feel better because of it.

human instinct is to get all the happiness in our short lives as possible right, but why are we listening to songs that actually make you depressed, and not that ones that claim to be sad

Because people can relate to the music and feel comforted that other people have experienced similar problems to their own.

No, I don't think it is. And the "sad" feeling we get when we listen to a sad song is different to the one we get when something horrible happens to us. The same way the thrilling kind of fear we experience when watching a horror film is different to the traumatic kind you would experience if what you were watching was real.

In times like that, we can relate. We'll do a lot to feel like we aren't alone, and it helps in the recovery process to know that a bad time you're going through has been conquered by someone else. There's always a way for things to get better.

I don't think we can have happiness without some kind of sadness to put it into perspective. And anyways, it doesn't usually have a profound effect unless you want it to. 90% of the music I listen to and get enjoyment from is considered by most people I know to be really sad sounding. However, of my friend group, I'm the most bubbly, jokester-type person (which is saying a lot).

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.
