Now Reading: A Playlist of Songs to Get You Through The Bad Times


A Playlist of Songs to Get You Through The Bad Times

April 10, 20172 min read

There’s always ups and downs in life and sometimes there is nothing you can do but escape into a different world for a while. For me, books and music have always been my chosen Utopia. However, each book in my archive deserves an entire article to fully explain the wonders of it, so I’ll stick to music for this one.

Ironically, listening to sad music with a slightly hopeful tone makes me feel better when I’m down. Maybe that’s because I get a good cry in, which usually makes me feel a little better.

Without further ado, here is my list of sad, upbeat songs.

1.  “BLUE” – Troye Sivan, Alex Hope.

Anything by Troye Sivan, really.

2. “Be As You Are” – Mike Posner

You may not like Mike Posner, but trust me, this song is worth it.

3. “Colder Weather” – Zac Brown Band

Whatever reservations you may have about country music, put them to rest for at least 4 minutes and 33 seconds, because this song is perfect. The guy in the song may be a f-ckboy but the melody is everything you need.

4. “Colors” – Halsey

Vocals may not be everything but the lyrics are.

5. “Foreigner’s God” – Hozier

Seriously, check out his entire album Hozier.

6. “I Have Nothing” – Whitney Houston

A classic to belt while crying.

7. “Imagine” – John Lennon

Another classic by another legend that takes you to another universe with his unique voice.

8. “In Too Deep” – The Sweeplings

This song has a sweet melody and haunting lyrics.

9. “It’s Gonna Find You” – Bombs Over Nowhere

The lyrics of this song never fails to make to put a light in the darkness.

10. “Mirror” – Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars

Definitely, something we’ve all felt.

11. “A Change Is Gonna Come” – Sam Cooke

This song never ages.

I have a lot now songs that help me through the bad times, but I can’t list them all here. Instead, I made a Spotify playlist with every song I already mentioned and more.

Here’s the link.
