    Don't get me wrong, there's great music here. Something about sad country songs is uplifting to me. I guess it's because that's pretty much all my family listened to when I was growing up.

    I was thinking the same with the Cure

    Here are two other tracks that I love feeling sad to as I dutifully rub greasy mascara along my diminished lashes and smear scarlet lipstick across my gaping maw in the dim flickering peal of a bare besotted bulb
