You walk into your apartment, lock the door behind you and immediately begin discarding your bag, clothing and composure as you make your way into your bedroom. In just your underwear, you flop onto your bed and face a fork in the road: do you scream or do you cry? Do you just lay there or do you get up and begin scribbling angry lyrics into a notebook? What’s a person to do when they’re in a particular mood that isn’t a happy one?
This edition of Build Your Playlist is comprised of tunes that are somber enough to keep you a little funky hearted for a good thirty minutes without pulling you too far down. Don’t front. You know there are times when you just want to put up the thickest curtains that kill all natural light, crawl under the covers and just cry with your face buried into a pillow covered by a towel so you don’t actually get the pillow case wet. Go ahead, damn it. Be a little depressed! Then get up and blog about it by making a playlist full of sad ass songs.
