  • It can go either way! If I want to reflect on something and cry it out, I listen to sad. If it hurts too much to think about and I want a distraction or a portal to let out frustration, I listen to higher energy and/or happier tunes. And then there are those times you want your brain to shut off and so I just sleep in silence to clear my head a little.

  • I chose cheerful but it is both sad and cheerful. When I am sad about a guy I CANNOT listen and deal with love songs happy or sad. But I try to keep it upbeat with happy songs. Sometimes a sad song relates to the situation and it makes me feel uncomfortable.

  • Sad music, for sure.
    When I'm sad, cheerful music does nothing but annoy me.

  • Where is the "I listen to both sad and cheerful music" option? It really depends on how bad I'm feeling. If I'm kinda sad, I'll still listen to cheerful music. If I'm really feeling bad, I'll listen to sad or angry music because I can relate to the lyrics.

  • It really depends. If I'm like feeling sad/down, I listen to slow, sad music lol. If I'm feeling angry/upset I listen to pumping music.
