Top 10 Sad Songs To Listen To When You Need A Good Cry

Sometimes we just need a little relief, and nothing is more relieving than a good crying session.

Top 10 Sad Songs To Listen To When You Need A Good Cry

I have to re-update my "sad hours" playlist constantly, so here are a few of my favorites that are always on repeat.

To This Day Project by: Shane Koyczan

This first one isn't actually a song- it is a spoken word poem. This poem (along with the video in particular) will 100% make me cry every single time. I still remember the first time I watched the video. It was seventh grade and my English teacher introduced a project we needed to do called "To this day..." He put on this video as and about 1/3 of the way in, all you could see was an ocean of tears just streaming uncontrollably down my face. The language is so powerful along with the moving visuals. It is, without a doubt, my absolutely favourite thing to listen to when I am sad.

Love, Dad by: Harry Hudson

This is definitely one of my go-to songs that I play when I'm really "in the feels." The voice of the artist is very soft and it can double as a song that helps you fall asleep.

Break My Heart Again by: Finneas

If you recently have gone through a breakup or really any relationship problem, this is most certainly the song for you. The message is, I'm sure, very relatable to a lot of people. It is not easy always always feeling like your putting in all of the effort with nothing in return.

If You Want Love by: NF

This song is a perfect musical representation of what I, and many other people, go through on a daily basis. It puts my thoughts into words that I could never could never come up with. The overall message: life is really a give and take and sometimes in order to reach the top of that mountain you are going to have to struggle through some valleys.

Listen Before I Go by: Billie Eilish

I could make an entire list of sad songs that I absolutely love containing only songs by Billie Eilish. She has amazing control of her voice that is so soft, it sounds like she is whispering. She is very talented and I could listen to all her songs for days on end and never get sick of it.

See You Again by: Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

After seeing Furious 7 in theaters I legitimately cried for 2 weeks after by listening solely to this song. I still remember walking home from school while this song was playing on my phone, and I pretended that I was in a really dramatic movie scene as the rain would fall down on my face. A true classic.

Falling into Love by: Alan Watts

There is something about the "old-school- type" recording throughout the song that just really gets me. I just can't help but feel completely and utterly... empty... but in a good way... in a "I am breathing out all of my problems" type of way.

Marvins Room by: Drake

I've always been a huge Drake fan and nothing hits quite like this song. It is quite an oldie but a goodie.

Alone by: Bazzi

I have been an avid Bazzi fan for about 2 years now and I have even seen him in concert twice. He is an amazing singer and I love just belting out his lyrics till I lose my voice.

If The World Was Ending by: JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels

This song has gained a lot of popularity recently and at first, I didn't understand why. After a while it really grew on me and it is actually one of my favorite "sad-girl-hours" songs. It really makes you think... who would you want with you if the world was ending?

I Fall Apart by: Post Malone

Of course I needed to throw on a good Posty song in the mix. Sometimes you end up in really low points in your life and nothing is turning out the way you intended so you're just end up... falling apart.

Hug All Ur Friends by: Cavetown

I am really grateful that one of my friends introduced me to Cavetown because I absolutely love his style and could always get me riled up for a good cry. The instrumentals in the background are so soft and calming that it just makes you feel like you are floating in water.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
