Musical Melancholy


You know how music totally evokes an emotional reponse from our brains/hearts, even when we don’t want it to?

I can no longer listen to the following songs unless I’m alone with a box of kleenex:

  • Jane – Jefferson Starship
  • Lights – Journey
  • Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
  • One More Day – Diamond Rio
  • Faithfully – Journey
  • If I Die Young – The Band Perry
  • Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond
  • Dust in the Wind – Kansas
  • Open Arms – Journey
  • In My Life – The Beatles
  • We Built This City – Starship
  • FM – Steely Dan
  • Hey Nineteen – Steely Dan
  • I’d Love to Change the World – Ten Years After
  • If You Leave Me Now – Chicago
  • Cat’s in the Cradle – Cat Stevens

Damn. DAMN DAMN DAMN. (and fuck Journey.) You know what? I almost just puked writing this, my stomach is so fluttery just thinking about losing him.

    Better not watch Glee. My 7 year old wanders around, thanks to Glee, and sings Journey, Queen, and more recently Katy Perry.

    Sigh. Kleenex makes the most wonderful lotiony feathery nose-wipers now so you barely can tell you’ve been crying, so listen away…
