10 Songs That Will Feed Deeper Into Your Mental Breakdown

College is all fun and games until these songs come on and the mental breakdown starts.


College is the peak of our lives--the best four years we will ever experience, but you can't experience the good things without the bad. Like everything else, college has its downs. Naturally, to get myself through these difficult times, I play sad music to put me deeper in my bag because, for some reason, that is what helps. Here are my top 10 go to songs to cry out loud to:

10. "Yellow" by Coldplay

Although the song is overall a happy meaning, the melody and tone are just perfect to start off the mental breakdown playlist.

9. "Breathe Me" by Sia

Something I am told every time I am on the phone with my mom during a mental breakdown. It never really works out so I reside to having Sia tell me what to do.

8. "Say Something" by A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera

Say something I'm giving up on my homework, and school, and boys, and everything in between. I'll be in my room crying to this song if you need me.

7. "Amnesia" by 5 Seconds of Summer

This song got me through my first break up and will never not give me PTSD, but is still one of the top crying songs. Who wouldn't want to forget all the bad times?

6. "Too Good at Goodbyes" by Sam Smith

Sam Smith knows it best. Hitting home real hard, he sings about losing someone close to him, but not really being too sad about it because it happens way too often nowadays.

5. "Stay" by Rihanna ft. Milly Ekko 

Going through a rough breakup? Rihanna has your back. It may not be the best idea to stay with your ex, but it is still good to let out all the tears with Rihanna.

4. "I Fall Apart" by Post Malone

Nothing is more fitting than having this song on repeat during finals week or any busy day at school.

3. "You'll Be In My Heart" by Phil Collins

Missing home? Definitely play this song. It will have you thinking about Tarzan and his gorilla mom immediately which will then lead to you thinking about your mom.

2. "Hallelujah" by Penatonix

The beautiful rendition of a timeless classic is always one of my biggest tearjerkers.

1. "Happier" by Ed Sheeran

To finish the crying session, at least end with a song that is all about being happier.

My obsession with country music is easily one of my best personality traits.

I've grown up on country music, and it's always been a huge part of my life. I remember the day that my mom bought me my first country CD. Since that day, I've been hooked. I still watch the Country Music Awards faithfully each year. My fun fact for syllabus week is almost always related to my love of country music.

The Definitive List Of 6 Cartoon Animal Men You Can Find Attractive Without Being A Furry

And no, Kovu isn't on this list because "The Lion King II" shouldn't really be a movie.


It's the age-old question: why did they make this cartoon animal so attractive?

OK, so maybe not age-old, but if you claim haven't been attracted to at least one of these characters (and you're attracted to men), you're lying. Each one was given a personality and characterization that makes viewers at home reevaluate their standards. But then comes the follow up: cartoons aside, does this make me a furry? And girls, gays, and theys I am here today to relieve you of that question, because if he is on this list, your answer is simply no, you are not.
