    I tend to listen to sad songs, to maybe cry and get over it.

  • Impressive selection. I like the diversity.

    As for me, I have a "reset song" that I think of whenever I'm really down, or have another undesirable song in my head, or the inner voice is negative, etc. It's "The Kiss" by the Cure, especially the lead guitar line:


    Kicks ass played live too.

    • Mad world is one i forgot, i listen to that all the time.

    • Show All
    • You have to be a rocker to pull off a look like that.
