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.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

24385

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.
