Post your music related feels.
>meet a girl at concert
>hit it off, eventually start dating
>bond over shared music
>go to a bunch more concerts together
>get her to join college radio station
>still have feelings for her
>she's still at the station
>get depressed whenever I got to staff meetings because she's there
>tfw no gf
And remember, as always, keep it music related.
Anyone can recommend some really emotional music?
I am talking Bright Eyes, The Mars Volta and The Smashing Pumpkins tier(all of which are vastly different but in their own way really intense and emotional bands)
At The Drive-in
Desperadicios or however it's spelled w/e
Fuck you nigga I could rattle off bands all day.
That's a good reply because they used to be one of my favourite bands
I know, but i have been trying to get into some emo and a lot of it just feels horribly american.
dont know the others. thanks for the recs.
also know atdi and thank you too for the recs.
>Fuck you nigga I could rattle off bands all day.
Yeah my post was vague as fuck. To be a bit more precise: emotionally intense on the vocal side of the music(which would fit to all 3 bands that I mentioned ni my post. Also NMH)
Cloud Cult is never mentioned on /mu/. I remember I tried to talk about them in 2009 and got shat on and never saw any mention of them again.
You are absolutely right though, that album is pretty fucked up.
>qt at school
>hitting it off with her

>me: "oh so like, at the drive in and fugazi?"
>I know, but i have been trying to get into some emo and a lot of it just feels horribly american.
Well if it's specifically not-emo you're looking for I can be a bit more helpful.

Bright Eyes - Let's not shit Ourselves
But where was it when I first heard that sweet sound of humility?
It came to my ears in the goddamn loveliest melody
How grateful I was then to be part of the mystery
To love and to be loved
Let's just hope that is enough
Goddammit I thought this would never happen to Since I left You

no one cares about the elitist who thinks he is better than everyone else but many elitists care about other elitists who think they are better than many people.
So what you're saying is...I should chance it and try my best to achieve personal patriciondom in the hope other enlightened individuals meet me at the gates of the conclusion of it all and I'll have found my home?
>meet qt at angel olsen show
>we hook up and go back to her place

I don't even know what this feel is.

>Next day wondering if she took it seriously or not, decided to not acknowledge what happened then because of how shitfaced I was

Fuck I'm retarded. I need music for this feel. It's an angry feel, towards myself
>>afterwards she tells me she has a girlfriend
Wait, what? Are you lesbians or something? And why do gays/lesbians worry about remaining faithful if they aren't able to reproduce or have to raise children?
I'm a dude but apparently she fucks dudes every once in awhile.
She told me at the beginning of the night that she was a lesbian but she liked to fool around with guys. I had no idea she had a gf though.
>And why do gays/lesbians worry about remaining faithful if they aren't able to reproduce or have to raise children?
so it's ok to cheat as long as you dont get any party pregnant?
>Be in college

>I just want a friend
Want should I do /mu/?
I probably will but I just don't want it to seem rapey. Like me being some random guy who messaged her offering to drive her to a concert four hours away with just the two of us, that not working out, but then asking her on some date.
>Falling for this girl
>Started falling in love with her back when I had depression
>She's more fucked in the head than I was

Music for this feel?

>Or how she felt when she cried as she gave me a last kiss goodbye
>She's hurting now in Switzerland and I can't help her
It's a lot more complicated than that but that's the gist. I know this isn't my shitty blog but, well, you asked.
And to keep this music related
>tfw you will never be able to listen to the songs you shared with her ever again.
>I get scared of commitment
I feel you man.
That's rough, though. Hope shit works out, thanks for sharing
>She's hurting, her depression is coming back, and the one that is comforting her now instead of me is her new, muscular European boyfriend.
Music for that feel
>become best friends with a girl I met online when I was 17
>we email each other constantly for about a year and it becomes obvious we're in love with each other
>neither of us admits it too each other, we just keep moving forward
>she tells me things like she's been in rehabilitation for drug use

>I give it to her again

We bonded over music, it counts.
>tfw befriend qt i got around to talking bc of music similarities
>we got closer, started dating
>im way too fucked up with depression and ruin everything between us
>shes apparently over me now and is seeing other people
>even sadder and hella confused about our relationship
should i talk to her? should i let her go?
tfw I don't really care about anything. I'm not saying I'm numb. I just don't care about...well anything. Still functioning... just don't care. I like this feel.
Also I'm fairly convinced I'm never going to have sex again. It was a fun run while it lasted. I honestly prefer jerking off by myself in a dark room.
Pic Related, can't get enough of the group. Not my usual cup of tea. It Came From The Radio is an Excellent Album.
>tfw nobody texts you back
>tfw end up spending every night alone in my room listening to shitty pop punk
>be whiny self pitying codependent faggot with poor me syndrome
>feel entitled to a gf without doing anything about it
>receive nothing after being promised nothing
>whine about it on /mu/
>tfw no gf
You think I don't know that already?
That's where the "Intense regret and guilt" comes from. It's one of the worst fucking feelings ever to hurt someone you love. Everyone makes mistakes but I made mine at the worst possible time.
Is there any music for the feel of sexual performance anxiety constantly cockblocking you?
Like I'm fine socially, but can not for the life of me get it in with girls that are into me because I have no idea what I'm doing and know I'll be terrible.
It's a bit late to turn things around. The main reasons for my worry are my grades from my first three semesters, my likely awful score on the Math GRE subject test (which I already took and am just waiting to hear back on), my poor score on the writing section of the general GRE, and my lack of extracurriculars. Did I mention I'm in senior year?
But we've all had those moments in our life when we feel stupid self-pity, and then self-pity for feeling that self-pity in the first place, and then we tell someone about it in a place like this because we are tired of being alone in our thoughts but realize that we've just directed the pathetic self-pity into an even more pathetic form of feeling the need to get pity from other people. Don't act like you don't feel emotions sometimes, anon.
>tfw growing apart from best friend since he got a gf
>tfw no motivation to talk to girls anymore
>tfw feeling out of touch with everyone I talk to
>tfw bad back which fucks up everything
>tfw college is too hard
>tfw i just want it to be summer again
I get that a lot, and I feel that people should be sympathetic to me. So I insist upon spiraling in a cry for help. You should direct the self-pity you want towards your old pals, make sure they see you stumbling around or off your head, big boy.
>hanging out with qt
>drive her home after getting coffee and dinner
>have Battles playing low over the speakers
>in front of her house
>she gets out of the car
>we say goodbye to eachother
>expect her to say have a goodnight
>"get better music"
there is no escape from this hell
Happened to me couple of months ago, I saw the chick with another dude already, feeling kinda sucked, but she still flirts with me, but in the meantime I hook up with another chick, so fuck her heh
The best starting points are probably Different Class and This Is Hardcore.
Different Class is them at their poppiest, while This Is Hardcore is a tad darker while still being pretty catchy.
>"get better music"
damn, have my feel ma8
>You should direct the self-pity you want towards your old pals
Thankfully I've had enough decency to stop myself from doing that. But what's your problem, anon? Are you afraid of emotion? Or are you just that much of a badass to be above all of that simple-minded stuff?
Honestly though thank you for posting those things. I've been aware of that a lot recently but it becomes even more real when you hear it from someone else too.
It's just stupid to fault people for feeling that way sometimes. Not everyone can be as perfect as you you know.
>meet qt girl
>we hang out
>love same music and shit
>date for a while
>eventually break up, but what ever we're still friends
>2 years later
>she passes away
>every song that reminds me of her makes me want to cry.
I've gotten over it a little bit but every time i hear a song that reminds me of her i get depressed. Life sucks.
I sort of want to meet you and just hear what you have to say about life. Whether you have an ego or not I obviously can't tell from these posts, but regardless. And I'm not even being sarcastic.
>roommate birthday today
>everyone is over and loud as fuck
I wish they'd leave the balloons alone.
>need to do homework before it's due tomorrow
>want to go to the library
>It's dark and -4'C
>trying to drown out their sounds with music
I just remembered that my turkey is thawing in the kitchen. I hope that they plan on going out soon because I'm tired and hungry.
I swear, it feels like I don't even exist here.
>tfw dorming next to girl who cheated on me and has guy she cheated on me with over all the time
>tfw extreme anxiety and depression
>tfw no motivation or inspiration, so i cant channel these bad feels into something productive
what do i even do
My girlfriend refuses to leave my guest room, the doctor said her ballet injuries (she had an accident at a recital a week ago) are somewhat serious and may permanently hinder her ability.
Poor kid, wish I could help her more.
She's listening/watching to her first recital ever, Balanchine/Mendelssohn's "A Midsummer Nights Dream", on repeat.
>tfw acute misophonia is ruining your grades and your social life
I submitted a request for a single, but it hasn't gone through and i dont know when it will. i dont want a double because it could be even worse. Thing is i really like the situation ive got going on other than that. ive got a bunch of friends close by and my roommate is cool
plus i know its stupid but i dont want to give her the satisfaction of knowing that she got to me that much. it's a stupid pride thing
She doesn't have to know why you moved.
As for the other issues, I guess that's up to you. I'm in a single this year and I love it most of the time, but right now I'm really depressed and have no one to talk to, so it does have its downsides.
>been seeing qt for the last few months
>really enjoying time with her
>have no idea how she actually feels about me or what we're doing
>too incapable of ever having a serious conversation with anyone to sort it out
>Don't really consider the lyrics of music
>Never really feel anything
>Sometimes like "Oh wow, that was clever" but nothing more
>Fall in love for the first time
>Feel like I have a huge chance that she feels the same
>She doesn't feel the same
>Feel like that was my one shot at happiness and being normal
>Listen to music
>What the fuck, suddenly I can relate to nearly every song
>Anything about break-ups, missing someone, feeling sad, being alone (which, by the way, is every fucking song) makes me feel feels
I never realised how much of music is oriented this way before....
You think you could go to your school's health office? Maybe they can make special accommodations for your issues. Might help turn around how your classes are going.
As for the other problems, I think therapy has got to be the only real solution.
>be in love with best friend
>not sure if I like feeling this way
>good friend of mine starts liking her too
>usurps her attention from me and other friends

Thanks for lending a listening ear.

The album that has been keeping me afloat is (aptly named) Aesop Rock's Float.
>We all die alone everything else is an illusion
lmao that was written on the wall of some room I was in a few weeks ago. I was really stoned + nauseous and seeing that made me feel horribly anxious. It's a pretty valid point though.
I haven't been is the thing
hence why I don't have an AOTY.
I deleted the first post because of a grammar mistake.
I have already tried, trust me. But my school is notoriously shit when it comes to IEP and accommodating mental illnesses. I'm still struggling with the school board, unfortunately it's not nearly as easy as i'd like it to be.
Still, thanks for the words anon. They mean alot to me.
I don't necessarily have an AOTY, but some shit that I have listened to this year and liked a lot:
>AJJ - Christmas Island
>Have A Nice Life - The Unnatural World
>RTJ - RTJ2
>A SIlver Mt. Zion - Fuck Off Get Free
>White Hinterland - Baby
>USA Out Of Vietnam - Crashing Diseases and Incurable Airplanes
>Mr Twin Sister - s/t
>Swans - TBK
>Nouns - Still
If I was forced to choose, I'd probably say TBK or Crashing Diseases. It feels weird knowing that these albums haven't even been out a year. This year has gone by so fucking slow.
>be sad and repressed
>falling for my best friend way too hard
>tell nobody, never bring it up with her, just enjoy time together
>be hanging out alone with a mutual guy friend
>better looking/more confident than me
>tells me he's into her
>want my friends to be happy, wish him good luck
>curl up in a corner alone at home
My faves this year are:
Swans - TBK
Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
Man Bites Dog - Noir
RTJ - RTJ2
Kairon; IRSE! - Ujubasajuba
I have been sleeping heavily on that ASMZ album I admit.
Swans - To Be Kind
The Hotelier - Home, Like NoPlace Is There
Nouns - Still
Haven't listened to RTJ2 yet.
I also liked the new Silver Mt Zion, but not AOTY liked.
Twin Fantasy wasn't this year anon.
Yeah I should probably move on
are actually both me.
