Turn on Those Sad Songs

Just so everyone knows, if you have to say goodbye to someone you love, playing sad songs while you cry on the way home really does help. I belted them out for 20 minutes on Northbound I-95 and by the time I got home, I had experienced a thorough catharsis and was back to smiling about all the fun we'd packed into our brief time together. Thank goodness my pal and I can keep in touch.

  1. I so hate goodbyes. I'm setting up my own in the next couple days, and it always breaks my heart.

  2. Oh, I love sad songs. I used to turn on "Love is Blindness" full blast and lay on the floor every time I felt down in college. It somehow makes you feel better--or maybe validates your bad feelings so you can get over them. I am missing my old "sad song" mix tape from Jr. High now . . .

  3. I ease many sadnesses with heavy doses of the Cure.:) Sorry you had to say goodbye, it's so rough when friends move away!

  4. I love sad, sappy love songs. I enjoy singing anything by Josh Grobin, Air Supply and of course Barry Manilow. Chocolate always goes great with sad songs and a good cry. Hope to see you smiling on Sunday!

  5. I need a Kellie hug right now! It is no fun saying goodbye, see you later is much better. I can't wait to show you the gorgeous mountains and valleys that are our new home now. Send me your sad songs playlist, please.... ;}
