R.E.M. - Everybody hurts
Morcheeba - Feer and Love

Music can be a tremendus mood swinger for me. I can go from euphoric to crying if a song hits me, or the other way around in a sec.

And, of course, when I'm down, I tend to put sad music which finishes me of.

Portishead songs are good for times of "extreme" emotion...



I don't know... I don't really listen to "sad" songs. I cry easily (and crying is NOT good for the looks!! *cough* ;)) so I tend to avoid listening to anything that'll make me cry...

Hooverphonic - Sad Song (though listening to that band certainly makes me anything but sad! :hearts: ;))
