Every season I make a new playlist of melancholy songs to listen to (actually I will take ANY reason to make a playlist, I recently made one just of songs about bananas which I don’t even like). I started with a winter one in 2019, then followed summer and fall last year. You may have noticed that I didn’t do a spring playlist and that’s because typically the vibe for spring ISN’T MELANCHOLY.
Spring is all about rebirth, renewal, the end of darkness, blah blah blah, which is not the mood for my seasonal playlists! Every other season has been so easy but with spring I didn’t even know where to start. I knew it would be my greatest challenge as a playlist curator but after researching some good depressing music I was able to make a start and now my playlist is almost two hours long. It’s constantly evolving as I find new sad songs to add so if you think I’m missing any please let me know!
