I would say that, in general, my favorite songs are sad and emotional. It's good to feel gloomy sometimes, and after you hear a song that you really identify and connect with, there comes catharsis. That's what this new mix is designed to do. Hopefully, after this series of depressing songs end, you won't end up depressed, but will instead have realised something and gotten something out of it.


(The name comes from a lyric in the song Broke by Modest Mouse (although I think the particular lyric is not in the version I put in the mix...))
