My Sad Song Playlist

Everyone has those songs that they listen to when they are upset.

My Sad Song Playlist

Oh admit it, you have a sad song playlist too.

When you're feeling down, because someone broke your heart, you're fighting with a friend, or you did badly on an exam, you listen to that playlist. Those same songs give you a sense of comfort and security on your bad days.

These three songs that are on my sad songs playlist.


"I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape"

This song has been on my playlist since it was released by Five Seconds of Summer in 2014. It is the typical breakup song and has such relevant lyrics. I have listened to this song hundreds of times, driving in the car with the windows down singing at the top of my lungs. I would totally recommend this song to those with broken hearts. It gives me some peace of mind when I listen to it.


"Take my mind and take my pain,
Like an empty bottle takes the rain.
And heal, heal, heal, heal.
And take my past and take my sins,
Like an empty sail takes the wind.
And heal, heal, heal, heal.
And tell me some things last."

I would recommend listening to this song when you are laying in bed and when you have both headphones in. Tom Odell knows exactly how to make the listeners vulnerable and fall under his spell.

"Piece by Piece"

"And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
But your love—it isn't free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn't have anything you needed so I was worthless"

Although to me, this song isn't relevant because my father didn't leave me as a kid, I still hang on to every word Kelly Clarkson sings. At some point in my life and I'm sure in everyone's lives, someone has broken their heart. Piece by piece, someone has put you back together.

"Till I Fall Asleep"

"Can we go back before the storm came raging?
And everything we built was gone
So sing to me til I fall asleep
Like the way you did when you were still mine
So sing to me til I fall asleep
Like the way you did when you were still mine
And tell me that it's not over yet"

I recently found a love for Jayme Dee. Her voice is full of soul and beauty. It has a full, rich sound to it and I love every second I hear her sing. Not to mention her songs are very relevant to breakups. I would listen to every one of her songs on repeat for days.

"The Words"

"And I know
The scariest part is letting go
'Cause love is a ghost you can’t control
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth"

Christina Perri always will be one of my favorite artists. I feel as if she is often overlooked because she mostly sings about being broken and going through breakups. People put her in the same game as Taylor Swift, when Christina Perri should be in a completely different league.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
