If you listen to sad music do you think it makes you sadder and gets you in a negative mindset or does that really have no effect

no, the opposite is true for me

edit: if i'm already feeling like shit and hating myself i usually opt for something nihilistic to remind me that life is meaningless so that might have something to do with it

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

nah i listen to negative / emo / blackmetal / etc type of music about death, sorrow, etc all the time
sad music helps me through difficult times, that's my experience
it doesn't make the sadness worse though...

I've been up spending every late night in my car listening to all these sad songs
I know it sounds weird but they're helping me move past all these things running through my head

Quote by Minkaro
When I'm sad I find songs that are kind of about what I'm sad about so it's like the singer is saying "me too, m8" and I don't feel so alone anymore.
Well, you're in the pit.

So let's cut this short.

Hopeful music makes me die on the inside.

Sad music helps me relax.

When I'm sad, I go from both extremes because catharsis, yo.

Fun fact: All these songs are in the same mode of A# Dorian.

all kinds of songs, even if not sad can make me sad if I think long enough about them from back in the days when shit was real and life was good. newer music (last 15+- years) sad or not doesn't make me sad cause I don't really have memories that mean much connected to them.

well, ok adele makes me sad
#23
Sad music used to make me sadder but that was good because being sad about a sad song is better than being sad about a sad life

But these days I don't think it has any impact.
I have nothing important to say

Sometimes feeling sad is a comfort in itself. I like listening to sad music when I'm feeling down - it helps in a way.

Depends, some sad stuff is cathartic, whilst others makes me spiral into depressive states.

For example:
Cathartic sadness

Hey guys,

I think there’s something that needs to be explained on our end here. We released a new EP on June 4th titled “Put Yourself Back Together.” There are some references in the songs that mention sleepy eyes and bony knees. There have been some negative comments regarding the amount of times we mention those two things. I want to make this post to explain the detailed meanings of both of those subjects. I assure all of you out there that we would never put something in multiple songs that doesn’t have a great amount of meaning. These songs are my life summed up into some verses and choruses. These songs are my therapy, and that goes for the four other dudes in my band too. So here we go….

Sleepy eyes refers to a time in my life in 2011. I was going through a very messy break up which then lead to a love triangle and that lead me to be depressed. The girl that I was in love with since I was eighteen had found someone else that she grew to love. She told me that she still loved me as well though. This lead to lots of sleepless nights and some weight loss as well. Thirty pounds of weight loss to be exact. Listen to our song “Floorboards” for more details on that whole situation. Well anyway, this situation and some other ones over the past few years have led me to not being able to sleep at night. I had resorted to sleeping pills in 2011 when I was depressed. I also consider myself a night owl in general. I haven’t gone to bed before 2 am in years. But mainly sleepy eyes is something that I think we have all been through in life. It’s about those nights when you’re so overworked and have so much going on that you can’t fall asleep, even if you are physically tired. Not only do I write these songs for my own therapy, but I would hope that some of you could find some peace in them. So of course I’m going to reference this subject multiple times. And that is sleepy eyes.

Bony knees is a subject that pops up in a lot of our songs as well. I will keep it general at first here. I in fact do physically have bony knees. But I will surely say that there is a way deeper meaning behind these bony knees. It kind of all dates back to my depression in 2011. Like I stated before there was some weight loss, which made these knees a little more bony than before. I also found myself physically and mentally down on my knees while going through depression. Even after 2011, after I started feeling better, I would still find myself down and out on my bony knees physically and mentally. We all go through dirt in life and lot of times it makes us fall on our knees for awhile. I can easily say that dirt has put me on my knees more than I want to say. But the beautiful part about falling on your knees is getting back up. And that’s the main point of the bony knees reference. You have to get up in life and move on. We have all been there and we will all be there again. When I write bony knees in a song it reminds me of how I put all of the bullshit behind me and moved on. And that is bony knees.

I just wanted to clear this all up. I don’t want anyone to ever think that we are using this as some sort of gimmick or something. We keep things real and it will always be that way. I hope you can all now find deeper meaning and connection with sleepy eyes and bony knees.

The song in the OP doesn't seem that sad.

But no. If it's a good song it might get me emotional and melancholic, but in a good enjoyable way, nothing close to put me in a "negative mindset".
Some times if you go out of your way to experience something sad it counter-intuitively makes you more satisfied, and that's cool. It can get kind of addicting ...
