We all have those days where you lie in bed with your “sad songs” playlist on blast, so why not make sure you’re getting the most out of your crying sesh by adding a few of these classics to your list. The following are some of my favourites to blast on a gloomy night.
1) Almost is Never Enough by Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes
Such a sweet song sang by such a sweet voice. Not too extreme that you’ll contemplate getting a psychologist for your feelings but sad enough to get you feeling a little in the dumps – perfect! Haha.
2) Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran
Disclaimer – before this, I had never cried to a song before. Trust Ed Sheeran to write a perfectly poetic sad song. Definitely get the tissues out.
3) Can I Be Him by James Arthur
James Arthur always has the most beautifully written songs, the more you listen to his lyrics the more it messes you up. Love this song.
4) Rise Up by Andra Day
A powerful voice with a powerful message. A good one to throw in the mix with the more depressing ones to make you feel a little more motivated and put together.
5) Waves by Dean Lewis
This has been on repeat for the past few weeks for me. Lyrics get me everytime.
6) Losin Control by Russ
A sweet love song with a sad story, definitely a good one.
7) Not Like The Movies by Katy Perry
Sometimes we forget that Katy Perry isn’t always a bubbly, happy popstar, this song shows her pain and heartbreak and it’s simply amazing.
8) Wings by Birdy
An oldy but a goody. Sweet lyrics and a strong message.
9) Skinny Love by Birdy
We can always trust Birdy to have delicate depressing songs to put us in that sad mood. This song is so gentle and pure and gets me everytime.
10) Million Years Ago by Adele
Adele’s lyrics are always so heartfelt but this song particularly stands out for me, you can really hear her pain through the music. I absolutely love this song.
