Happy vs. Sad Songs

Recommended Posts

Hello children! B) Have you not delved deep enough yet into the black cave of despair?Here are a few sad trump cards:

Padmassana - Buckethead

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths

Lovesong - The Cure

Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley (Leonard Cohen)

Chelsea Hotel #2 - Leonard Cohen

9 Crimes - Damien Rice

Isolation - Joy Division

The River - Bruce Springsteen

Tracy - Mogwai

Revelate - The Frames

Happy ones:

Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen

Falling Slowly - The Frames

Anthem - Leonard Cohen

Perfect Day - Lou Reed (Little of both,actually)

I have removed Zep from the equation,they are not sufficiently sad to have any place in the first list,but my happy list.

I have also removed all classical music,otherwise the sad list would be Mahler/Beethoven-dominated and the happy one Tchaikovski/Beethoven.

It is harder to make happy art good.
