What is the saddest song you've ever heard? I'm in a shit mood and want sad shit to listen to.
Currently listening to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRAI87PbX8c
Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said
Cried hard when I first heard it, still tear up occasionally when listening to it (relates to my mom dying)
Let's try some motiviational pasta:
Some things in life are bad they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewin' on life's gristle, don't grumble give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best
If life seems jolly rotten there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing
For life is quite absurd and death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin, give the audience a grin
Enjoy it it's your last chance anyhow
Life's a piece of shit when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true
You'll see it's all a show keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you
"Für Alina" by Arvo Pärt
You'll be putting on the helium mask after 60 seconds
Have you ever felt like you just don't really have a place in the world? You're not quite sure what to do with yourself, but you know you should do something worthwhile? Then you feel as though it's pointless to try and change things when you realize that the world is very cold and stubborn in its ways?
heh, made me crack a smile
This is a Paul Kelly song
A mate of mine rocked up to this guys apartment back in the 80`s and he'd sold all his stuff for some junk. He still had a milk crate and his guitars.
Now hes moderatly rich and famous
I enjoy spending time with friends and family a lot, but at the same time I adore being alone. I kinda wish I could leave everything behind, and just start walking. Just go anywhere without a care in the world, but I have too many responsibilities to worry about.
I am surprised no one mentioned this one yet:
Johny Cash - Hurt
You're not alone wishing that dude, sadly it's not realistically do-able as the world is today. That isn't to say the idea should be abandoned entirely, just re-worked. There's nothing but yourself stopping you doing it on a small scale.
Walking off somewhere relatively unknown, just for a day, is more rewarding than tracking the same routes, over and over and over and over for weeks. Take a tent, or a bit of money for somewhere to stay overnight and do it for a weekend.
Keep doing it, going further afield each time, and you'll build up experience and confidence, as well as a feeling of fulfillment. Over the years, it'll be a massive improvement.
Convincing yourself to purchase a tent and set off is the only hurdle. Don't ask yourself if you're going to do, just tell yourself you're going to do it.
It works bro, trust me. Your alternate reality self.
this is a guy from my town who, apparently recently died but no one can substantiate the report and there hasn't been an obituary or anything, but this bring me to my knees, so haunting
>Have you ever felt like you just don't really have a place in the world
Holy fuck. This is me. I just started a new job and I feel like I'm so left out. Everyone seems so average and normal there. I have so many different outlooks and apparently everything I say is weird. It makes me not want to work there.
Also at the point where I literally have no friends and hang out with no one.
No problem bro. I just love La Dispute. The lead singer is an amazing poet/story teller.
couple of songs I always listen to when im down
>mfw I may have the music taste of an early 2000s emo girl
>mfw my dad says "you dun goofed and that consequences will never be the same"
>Everyone seems so average and normal there.
>apparently everything I say is weird
Those people look outside to dictate their inside.
You look inside to dictate your outside.
Respect anon, you must carry on.
I'm getting to that point as well. Old friends don't have as much time to hangout or schedules conflict or they just don't feel the need to put in as much effort. Bright side is I'm closer to some friends than I was before and have been better at making time to spend with my family.
The fact that I can still hangout with these friends and have fun doing nothing tells me a lot.
Ausfag here, I'm interested.
It just makes me feel so weird though. Like I'm the stranger and freak. I don't know how long I'll be able to tolerate this job if I can't get along with my co-workers. Not only that, one of them is incredibly bossy, she's now my superior, is young then me, and gets offended by absolutely everything.
well shit, i am stoned
I consider myself a very loyal friend, when I have friends. I will always go out of my way to visit them, hang out with them, pay for things for them, do anything to keep them as my friend. I am quite a lonely person. I haven't found a person that has been loyal to me yet. They never bother to contact me, not even on Facebook, no texts, no calls. I spend pretty much every weekend at home, watching TV, or wasting time on the internet.
My core group has dropped to about 2.5 friends. A lot of people have moved for school, work, and various other reasons though. It hurts to see so many previously good friends go. I need to write down good memories now before my mind goes
I'm only 20, 3 years out of high school. I had two best friends, who I thought were my closest. Since finishing high school I've seen them probably less then 20 times in the past 3 years. If we ever do see each other it's only because I've contacted them first. Not the other way around.
Yeah it really is, Wil Wagner is incredible, also fronts The Smith Street Band, but I prefer his acoustic work. I recommend checking out his set at the Reverence Hotel.
awesome, listening now. sounds good.
unless i invite someone to hang out with me, i spend every moment of my life alone.
shit sucks, like what is wrong with me that nobody ever thinks i'd be fun to hang out with?
shits making me paranoid
Yeah I know of The Smith Street Band. A girl I work with likes them. I'm a bit all over the place with my music. Primarily metal gives me the most feels. Depends what you're into though.
No, I'm the same. Bettering myself lasts a max of 8 weeks or so then I end up going back down hill. Motivation is very hard to come by with me. I'm not a happy person, but I keep on fighting the good fight I guess.
If you were Australian and lived in Brisbane I'd hang out with you bro. I wish I had friends. It might sound pathetic or sad, but I'm so fucking lonely and I just want to cry.
>It just makes me feel so weird though. Like I'm the stranger and freak
>It makes me feel as if i'm not like the average humans.
Embrace it. Out-do them. Normaloids are a blessing in disguise. They're a dull pedastal of middle-of-the-road bullshit for you to stand out against with little effort.
Whatever happens, don't succumb, at any point, to their default attitudes.
As for the bossy she-wench, game over son. She sounds easily manipulable though.
Anything to do with Laika gets me every time.
>Meanwhile her Master worked frantically to scale out the beeps, he was hoping to extract a reading on cabin temperature. He was shocked, if telemetry was correct; Laika's cabin was like an oven. He also sensed a failing heartbeat on his monitor, but she was still alive. % hours have passed since his little curly was launched into space. She must be terrified, he thought. She is suffocating, she is the last stage of heat exhaustion, she must frantically look around for me He has always been proud to be part of space research, but this time he felt dirty. He betrayed the trust of his four-legged friend, he has known from the beginning this was a suicide mission. He quickly raised his eyes above the glass roof.
"Don't let her suffer anymore", he whispered in prayer
>If you were Australian and lived in Brisbane I'd hang out with you bro. I wish I had friends. It might sound pathetic or sad, but I'm so fucking lonely and I just want to cry.
i'd take you up on that offer if i lived there. sadly, i'm an american who just spent the last 36 consecutive hours alone in his apartment browsing the internet to try and distract himself from the holidays and not sleeping, because i might dream about people i like and wake up even more depressed
She can have her moments when she's nice. But her whole life is just fucking partying. She goes out every weekend smoking pot, dropping tonnes of MDMA and getting wasted. Then at work she can be a nasty bitch. Gets angry and stresses about the smallest things. Gets pissed if I interrupt her for only a second or two. She smokes heaps of cigarettes too so it's probably the nicotine withdrawls. Wish I could get her fired.
That's quite sad mate. I wish we could talk more. But alas, friendships don't work too well without physically meeting up with one another.
>mom has to move into the inner city
>go to new school
>be one of 5 white kids in town
>sit alone everyday
>sitting at table adjacent to a table full of black kids
>keep hearing them yelling about DCC

>eventually one of them says
"Nigga fuck all that shit yall already know DCC cant even fuckin touch nuthin my nigga Ian Curtis did"
>try to remember that name

>we are all hanging out in the parking lot
>guy drives by and starts blaring soul meets body by death cab for cutie

I have other stories about these guys past meeting them. any interest?
Check this sad shit out.
I went to a party at his place a couple of years ago. Glad he kicked it and didn't OD.
Obligatory. Probably already been posted.
Gary Jules - Mad World
my sister listened to that one song.. Offspring-Gone away when her friend died getting hit by a train.
Yeah, it's not so much dark sounding, but the lyrics are incredibly moving to me. I personally enjoy sad music myself. It strangely enough brings my mood up a little. I think you'd enjoy them, although his vocals are an acquired taste.
I'm not afraid to admit that i have cried to this song.
also i totally know the feeling. I've really only got a couple of friends that i see regularly. about ten years ago i went through a pretty rough patch. Best friend that i was living with killed herself and i all my other friends and family lived in anther city. cried myself to sleep many nights. i had the money to get on a plane to japan. nearly went through with it but decided to move back home to my family instead
