Unhappy songs typically, opposite to expectations, make folks completely happy. There’s science behind this, together with the next article, which affords hyperlinks to earlier research on the matter. This explicit article used three lesser identified items of classical music, and requested its individuals to explain how the songs made them really feel, versus what they anticipated others to really feel, and based mostly their conclusion on the perceived feelings vs felt feelings of the listener.
I am undecided I observe their arguments solely, so I think I’ll should dig into among the hyperlinks offered to get extra of the story.
Anyway, I am kinda digging the piece they used for instance of unhappy music, the minor key Etude Sur Mer by Felix Blumenfield
I used to be considering extra of pop/rock music once I scribbled the weblog title, which was initially simply “unhappy songs”, and introduced on by right now being precisely ten years on from the worst heartbreak I’ve ever been dealt. I am 99% certain I would not have recalled this particular date had I not been digging into these previous journals final week.
Although a few the songs listed under are tracks that took on a far higher that means after that occasion, these are all songs I actually like, which recommended the google search resulting in me linking the article above. This train has me in a really reflective temper, however save for one tune under (The place within the World), is not actually making me unhappy, per se.
#1 on my listing of saddest songs ever: Freak Kitchen, “Damaged Meals”
Device – “Schism”
A pair from Fish:
A Gents’s Excuse Me
The place within the World
Previous Metropolis Bar
Untouchable Half I and II
Clearly there are a ton extra songs that match into this class, however i will go away it right here for now. What are your favourite unhappy songs?
