    Do you have any songs that you like to listen to when feeling very low that help you cry it all out?

    When im low and close to tears sometimes i have to actually play one of my 'sad songs' to enable myself to have a good cry.

    The one that always has me in tears is Two Beds and a Coffee Machine by Savage Garden.

    I used to have a whole playlist of them so they were easy to find but havent set one up on the new laptop yet.

    Sometimes a good crying session can really help alieviate my mood.

    Crying helps alleviate some stress - I hear humans cry so our body can release tension and regulate our blood pressure/ heart rate. But whenever I listen to sad songs while depressed, I get really depressed.

    I am just the opposite. I listen to some good ole Rock-n-Roll. I crank it up to help me get those thoughts out of my head. If I listen to easy listening music it just depresses me more.~Joseph~

    I just came out of an episode of sinus problems, which made me very paranoid and manic. during the time i listening to progressive metal. now that im back to being numb and depressed, im listening to the following.

    Unjust - way out

    Disposable feelings.... in turn
    How can I care now, when all is gone
    Only fire...
    Masked pretenders...

    Way out...Way out...
    This time its forever...
    Way out of time...Again
    Way out...Way out...
    This time its forever
    Way out of time
    Forever fleeting... the call
    Return for the measures, when the time is good
    Only fire burns...

    Who's to fill this empty body of mine left here?
    Destructions of fear make shapes of mind change,
    Only mine stays.

    Disposable Feelings, in turn
    How can i care?

    Who's to fill this empty body of mine?

    i used to avoid ''sad'' music. . . or any music, it 'stirred' my emotions. .. now i believe i was ''''stuffing'''' a lot of stuff! so lately i am listening to an old creed cd. ''weathered". and fave cut appropriately titled '''one last breath'''
  12. You should definitely make a playlist of songs that you feel comfortable listening to in any situation. Songs that get your adrenaline flowing, songs that help you get you through times when you're feeling down...I can't think of any more emotions because those are the only 2 I seem to have. But definitely make a playlist of songs to listen to according to your mood.

    As for songs I find sad...
    Alice in Chains: Brother, Am I Inside, and Right Turn
    Nirvana: Something In The Way

    That's all I can think of at the moment, but anything acoustic can usually do the trick.

    Pretty much any symphonic metal with a female vocalist when I'm depressed. Leave's Eyes, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, etc.

    There's a Korean classical artist that I also like named Sumi Jo who always manages to make me feel bad.

    And for some reason, "What About" by the Addiction Crew is always a one-way train to Depressionville.

    But, bar none, when I want to feel like crap, I watch the music video to "Eyes of the Insane" by Slayer. It is definantely triggering, so I'd recommend staying away from it unless you're in the right frame of mind.

    I was in a pretty good mood the first time I saw it and then I felt like the biggest shitball on the planet for the rest of the day.
