How to overcome sad music addition?

Do you listen sad music when you are sad? If yes, read my article. People enjoy feeling of sadness, no escape, acceptance of own misery. Why? Because that’s easy. It’s easy to turn on sad music, cry and do nothing to improve current miserable life.

Artists learn to capitalise on sad music. For them it’s the way to express their own messed up life and make money on it. Prohibited substances overdose, unhappy relationship, abusive language, alcohol, party, uncontrolled sexual interactions, patriarchy, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. This is not full list of all what you will hear in sad (and kinda boring) songs.

It’s easy to fall in trap of sad music and streaming services always ready to help. Streaming services use machine learning to predict your music preferences. And you will see a few more sad songs in list of “you may like it”. Don’t fall in trap. Keep yourself accountable for music that you feed to your brain and soul.

Here’s a few examples of sad lyrics that make no sense for putting your life in order:

I heard that you’re settled down

That you found a girl and you’re married now.

I heard that your dreams came true

Guess she gave you things, I didn’t give to you.

Adele

Does this lyrics makes you happy? I don’t think so. You feel her sadness and waste your life on tears and anxiety.

Woke up alone in this hotel room

Played with myself, where were you?

Fell back to sleep, I got drunk by noon

I’ve never felt less cool

Harry Styles

Overthinking + alcohol abuse. Why? Move on.

I just wanna dance all night

And I’m all messed up, I’m so out of line, yeah

Stilettos and broken bottles

I’m spinning around in circles

And I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh

And I’m right over here, why can’t you see me? Oh

“Dancing on My Own” – Calum Scott

Just read this lyrics. She’s messed up, drunk, anxious, jealous of others happiness. Why would you listen to it?

I look up from the ground

To see your sad and teary eyes

You look away from me

And I see there’s something you’re trynna hide

And I reach for your hand but it’s cold

You pull away again

And I wonder what’s on your mind

And then you say to me you made a dumb mistake

“Be Alright” – Dean Lewis

I’m speechless after reading this lyrics. Do you really need to listen about someone’s personal drama?

Wish I could, I could’ve said goodbye

I would’ve said what I wanted to

Maybe even cried for you

If I knew it would be the last time

I would’ve broke my heart in two

Tryna save a part of you

“I’ll Never Love Again” – Lady Gaga

Legendary Lady Gaga but I simply can’t listen her song without rational thinking about the lyrics. Again unnecessary drama and anxiety.

This world can hurt you

It cuts you deep and leaves a scar

Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart

And nothing breaks like a heart

“Nothing breaks like a heart” Miley Cyrus

Beautiful Miley Cyrus but such a sad song. Why to spoil your good mood by listening sad songs?

Bet you wanna rip my heart out

Bet you wanna skip my calls now

Well, guess what? I like that

‘Cause I’m gonna mess your life up

Gonna wanna tape my mouth shut

Look out, lovers

Lorde “Hard Feelings/Loveless”

Bruh. Too much of drama. And not even your drama.

Why would you listen about sadness in someone’s life if you have your happy mood? Cheer up!
