I have an iTunes playlist I call "Funeral Mix"
Edited on Wed Mar-23-05 09:14 PM by Kire
I don't know why, but for many years now I have been collecting the saddest songs. It started I guess not soon after 1997, the year when I was hospitalized with Depression and Schizo-Affective disorder, following a couple of years of intense drug addiction and manic delusions (involving my ex-girlfriend's dead brother's ghost and a restraining order).

Anyway, back then, I was able to keep them burned on one blank compact disc, only 18 or 20 songs, maximum. Now, that I have iTunes, I have just been collecting songs and putting them in there. There are 69 songs, now.

Edit: They are listed as song title, then artist, then album. I hope it's not too confusing. It'd be a lot of work to make it crystal clear.

2. I've made 2 CDs for my dad, another one is coming, and he has his own list
he wants me to do up as well. He, too, likes the sad songs and finds them cathartic. Esp the love songs.

The new version of iTunes sucks, so I lost my playlists. This definitely helps things.

Everything's Not Lost, indeed.
