Is it sadness hour again? Okay, so it's absolutely no secret that the last
two three years have been the most depressing in recent history, and that's me being generous. We get like... maybe a week of good news if we're lucky and then things get bad again. Not to mention that even when life goes on, you can still experience loss and heartbreak. First there's disbelief. Then there's anger. But after those two intense emotions fade away, then comes sadness (and there's more than enough of that to go around these days).
In short: You, my friend, are in need of a good cry. Instead of doom-scrolling social media, let's talk to some songs about it. And the good news? You don't even need to search Spotify, inevitably stumbling across two to three mediocre sad-girl playlists minimum*, because we have one riiiight here that's 100 percent tested and guaranteed to make the tears flow. So draw the curtains, curl up under the covers with your favorite stuffed animal, and have a packet of Kleenex at the ready—these 61 sad songs are about to take you on an emotional, sob-filled rollercoaster ride.
