Why does sad electronic music not exist? Excluding "ambient" music, the only emotion electronic music can invoke is to be happy or excited. Pic not related

I find this to be pretty sad: http://youtu.be/Nn1PQPUxlSU

But Radiohead have made a bunch of sad songs with electronic aspects to them, so your pic is actually very related.

I really, really don't understand how you can believe electronic music can only make you "happy or excited". Does acoustic only make you sad? Does anything only hit one emotional note? If it does, the problem might be between your headphones and in your skull.

explain how that was even remotely sad.

>>51116282
yes, pretty much any burial track

Here's one I find pretty sad

OP here, that felt sad, but is there a specific meaning behind the song?
>>
Replica has some pretty melancholy moments on it, especially the title track.
>>
>>51116105
A lot of idm can be very melancholic at times.
>>
>>51116105
someone needs to do one of those with BoC albums
>>
deep house is inherently melancholic.
>>
also, post-pop like dean blunt, james ferraro and shit.

This maybe?

got a link for play by numbers? I don't have that one :(
I don't have boc maxima either but I've always got the impression it's not worth it, if you already have geogaddi and music has the right to children

Dunno if Saltillo has been posted yet, but if not, he should be.

This track is sad to me for some reason, it's got a whole lot of emotion packed into it.

Always reminds me of a closedown theme for a dictatorial state's television network. No idea why.
