Tom from (500) Days would be proud

maybe it was the fact that today was overcast with a hint of dust storm, or maybe it was the fact that it is supposed to be snowy/rainy tomorrow, or some other melancholic scenario involving weather. whatever the reason, today i listened to a very awesome, melancholy playlist filled with the angst riddenest groups out there. my day started out with a little kalai, who isn't very depressing at all, but quickly moved on from there. here is my playlist from today:

  1. Michael Hedges - Aerial Boundaries (the whole album)
  2. The Cure - Boys Don't Cry (i blame this one on claire)
  3. The Cure - Close to Me
  4. The Smiths - How Soon is Now?
  5. Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
  6. Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
  7. Bloc Party - Banquet
  8. Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime
  9. Radiohead - Paranoid Android
  10. Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight
  11. The Cure - Love Song
  12. The Killers - Smile Like You Mean It
  13. The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
  14. David Bowie - Heroes
  15. Radiohead - All I Need
  16. INXS - I Need You Tonight
  17. Coldplay - Trouble
  18. Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
  19. Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma (k, so this one doesn't fit the motif, but what the hey)
  20. The Shins - New Slang
  21. Talking Heads - Burning Down the House
  22. The Smiths - This Charming Man
  23. Feist - My Moon My Man
  24. The Cure - Lullaby
  25. The Arcade Fire - Rebellion(Lies) (i can't listen to more than a few of arcade fire's songs at a time, but sometimes they hit the spot)
  26. Smashing Pumpkins - Today
  27. David Bowie - Life on Mars?
the best part was, i wasn't depressed or emotional about it, i just really enjoyed it.


  1. that's a hella great playlist. Two Shums up.

  2. I can definitely relate. It seems that melancholic music is all that I own. If it isn't heart wrenching, I won't hear it.
