sad summer playlist

for the days that are so bright it makes your soul squint
  1. Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey
    this one speaks for itself. she's a queen and born to die is a classic
  2. Just a Dream - Nelly
    it's def about a girl, but I feel like this song applies to anything you regret losing
  3. On the Line - Blood Orange
    Blood Orange exploded after Cupid Deluxe because that album is a masterpiece. this song is a sad potential break up song
  4. I Know It's Over - The Smiths
    really, anything by the smiths is appropriate for any kind of sad day. morrissey is the original normcore emo boy. he's an inspiration to us all.
  5. El Condor Pasa- Simon and Garfunkel
    song about the futility and stagnation humans experience everyday. they really bring it home with "Away, I'd rather sail away/Like a swan that's here and gone." sing it bro
  6. Fireworks - Animal Collective
    "I'm only all I see sometimes." animal collective tryna hide the sad behind a beautifully orchestrated chaos
  7. Close to Me - The Cure
    it's bouncy and has pretty horns. a little musical pick-me-up with relatable lyrics. besides, the cure is the ultimate in sad-boy-pop
