I have come across many upbeat lists, but rarely have I seen a list of songs for the melancholy soul. Melancholy is best described as a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause. You could compare it to depression and if you think about it I’m sure you can think of at least one melancholy soul in your life. This list of songs for the melancholy soul are some of my favorite songs. Over the years I’ve added them to my playlist without realizing the connection. Do you find this list of songs for the melancholy soul comforting because you understand what it's like? Or do you find these songs to be a downer?
1. Creep - Radiohead
This song is a classic. I love listening to it with this scene from "Ils se marièrent et eurent beaucoup d'enfants" aka "And They Lived Happily Ever After", starring Johnny Depp and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
