Everyone loves sad songs. Everyone has a handful that they adore, worship and couldn’t really live without. Sad songs are often the ones you keep returning to, year after year, which might be why there’s a good amount of older music here. Sometimes, these things grab you right away, but others have very quietly and unobtrusively made their home in your thoughts over the years and remind you they exist at just the right moments. Hazy, like an unobtrusive haunting, sometimes that very quiet ghost will brush past you or wander down your hallway and remind you of your songs. Even then, it might just be the wind.
We thought, since we’re writing new songs for several things, we’d put together a new mix. Something that goes well with Spring thundershowers and red wine.
This is our collection of favorite sad stories.
