8 Songs To Add To Your 'I'm Feeling Blue' Playlist

There are days when you just can't help feeling blue. You can try and try to cheer yourself up, but sometimes it may be better to allow yourself to wallow in a puddle of sadness instead. There's nothing wrong with being in your feels. Here are eight sad songs to listen on your gloomy days.

"Me" - The 1975

Starting off this list, a song off of The 1975's debut self-titled album. "Me" is the perfect song to hit when you're in that down in the dumps mood. One listen is all you to understand what I'm talking about — the introduction, the slow metronome style drumbeat, and the intense lyrics. I've spent my share of nights driving around with this song playing, and each time it hits just the same.

"Stay" - Post Malone

This one might be a little more known. The acoustic song about his troubles maintaining a relationship with his girl is one that might hit home for many. Acoustic Post always hits in the feels, and this is no different. Maybe not the best driving song, but definitely good for laying down after a tough day — maybe even a fight with that significant other.

"Privilege" - The Weeknd

The EP is called "My Dear Melancholy," so of course, it's going to have some sad songs. The last track "Privilege" is the one that really got me the most. The song deals with The Weeknd's solution to recovering from a breakup — that solution involves drugs. The slow beat, somber melody, and sad lyrics make for one really good "melancholy" song, making it suitable for your sad playlist just fine. While the whole album could be an article in its own, this track is the one that stuck on my playlist.

"A Heart Like Yours" - Kevin Garrett

In this song, Garrett touches on being left by someone that he still has feelings for. While it starts slow and picks up towards the end, it doesn't lose touch with the sad melody that started it out from the very first note. A good one to check out since many haven't heard this one before (hopefully a new addition to some sad playlists).

"$ting" - The Neighbourhood

It wouldn't be one of my articles if I didn't include The Neighbourhood. Luckily, they have sad songs too. Off of their EP "The Love Collection," this song focuses on a relationship that was doomed from the start, no matter how hard the two people tried to make it work, even stating that the two had been "ignoring the problems just to hold what we had." A good song for those having relationship problems and definitely one that will make the sadness feel sadder.

"Talk is Overrated" - Jeremy Zucker

A track off of his EP "Idle," Zucker teams up with Blackbear to produce a sad song for the ages. Again speaking on relationships, Zucker believes love is not that great and refuses to recognize titles. Blackbear hops on because he is the king of emo. Together they help populate the sad playlists of everyone who believes love is dumb, or in this case, "overrated." Blackbear deserves a shoutout as well, his song "90210" is on my sad playlist.

"Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" - John Mayer

Mayer is known for always having good songs, but that doesn't leave out sad songs. From his album "Continuum," he sings about a relationship that is deteriorating, maybe after one too many fights. It's gotten so bad that they know they're doomed, which brings the title "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room." The combination of emotional lyrics with Mayer's guitar playing ability really brings about a good song to listen to in the shower when you're feeling down.

"Doing It Wrong" - Drake

I could have said "Marvin's Room," but that would have been way too easy. Doing It Wrong, in my opinion, is just as sad. To be honest, I think the melody and beat might even be sadder. Either way, there's a reason Drake is known for being able to put people in their feelings because this song can do just the trick. Whether you've never heard it before — perhaps you have heard it a million times — it deserves a spot on your sad playlist.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.
