30 Day Song Challenge, Day 22: A Song You Listen To When You’re Sad

Look, if you’re going to be down, you might as well be as down as you possibly can, right?

There’ll be no Erasure playing in my house when I feel down. Instead, I’m going to let myself sink into a deep depression by listening to this song.

Billie Holiday – “Gloomy Sunday”

Listen to that song, man. That’s some pretty deep stuff, much like her song “Strange Fruit.” This goes to show you that it doesn’t matter how much auto-tuning is done, how flashy a singer is, or how many records they sell, the best stuff (in my opinion) requires none of it – and isn’t even in stereo most of the time.
