IT'S OFFICIAL #847

Hmm...there's nothing like depressing music to bring solace to actual depression. Delerium's "Syrophenikan" seems to be doing the trick.

Why is it that happy music often makes us feel worse when we are sad? Or does happy music make you feel better?

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I find I like depressing music far more than happy music. Sad really...

happy music sounds really really cheap and sugary sweet when you're in a down mood. You have to dwell in the sadness for a bit until it's out of your system. Better than denying that it's there by off-setting it with upbeat tunes.
