or a really crap time in your life.
Guided By Voices - Alien Lanes
Death cab - Translanticism
And quite a lot of music I hate :(
Anyone remember them? Anyway, it's no loss to me. Also The Goo Goo Dolls. Again, no loss.
No great loss then!
The Rising Tide - SDRE
And The Glass Handed Kites - Mew
Seven Swans - Sufjan Stevens
who'd make me not want to listen to Seven Swans
At the moment, pretty much anything by Black Moth Super Rainbow, Radiohead, Silver Apples, The Zombies, anything with keyboards in it and pretty much all my favourite bands save a few American indie-rock bands from the 90's or some brazilian guitar stuff she was never into. I hate this. I am sad.
Bjork - Vespertine
The Smiths - Strangeways......
Maybe there are certain songs that remind me of times and particular girls.. but I don't think there's anything in particular I can't listen to.
(With the possible exception of Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out by Yo La Tengo)
I like to think by not blacklisting things it's easier to become comfortable with the memories and move on.
I quite often like to be reminded of ex's or shit times. I learned alot from them and they were pretty important to me.
the cranberries, so not a bad thing really
so again. no great loss. one or two songs but i've forgotten them. plus as DanielKelly quite rightly says, it's all about the learning curve and thinking in retrospect of said ex or shit time.
have all had shit taste in music. If my now-partner were to end things, however, my entire CD collection would be fucked. Fucked, i tell ye!
but i got over that.
lcd soundsystem...joy division. not much else.
Coldplay - Rush of Blood - specifically Warning Sign
Muse - Blackout
Weezer - Only In Dreams
To The End - Blur (that's a more resentful one than sad)
This Is A Low
I just feel really down for about an hour
Broadcast - Tender Buttons
no massive loss.
I couldn't listen to Air's Moon Safari for about seven years after I split up with my special lady friend from Uni. I can now though.....
and also cocteau twins, for a while
Jacknife to a Swan by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. It ended up making me feel even more depressed. Sometimes ska music doesn't 'brighten' your mood.
reminds me of being stupid... then, not now.
Except if it's Lightyear.
but one day I just decided against having music ruined for me by tossers.
Unless it's something I didn't like anyway, of course.
everything else is in the clear!
i once had a massive panic attack in the middle of Rebellion by Arcade Fire, in a packed club, and went awol for a couple of hours in the streets of leicester.
couldn't listen to it for months. or leave the house, for that matter..
that remind me of my ex, but only a couple that actually make me sad, the worst on is:
ryan adams - dear john
PJ Harvey's "Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea". I've not yet tested it to see if it reduces me to a blubbering mess.
Editors - The Back Room
Bought them both during a bad time and listened to nothing else.
Also, The Eraser to a lesser extent.
Fiona Apple works both ways, can be amazing or devastating depending on mood.
in time. But for a while I struggled to listen to REM and The Doors, oh and Ash. Now I listen to them with fond memories. I won't let stuff like that get between me and good music.
tv on the radio
I had a one night stand to the sounds of Panic at the disco....I've oddly enough loved it ever since.
is always a bit bleeeeh, especially when "Symmetry" comes on
The Milltown Brothers.
Neither of them exes, just girls I declared my unreciprocated love to.
Whilst listening to a 50 Cent/Milltown Bros mashup.
OK, maybe I made that last bit up.
will always remind me of an ex-girlfriend. I took her to see them cos she loved them. I was totally mystified by them.
I also went to see the Fugees after being stuck with a ticket after a bust up with a girl. And that turned out to be the best gig of its year.
are Biffy Clyro and The Who at the moment(although the latter still reminds me of arguing about whether they were better than Led Zep).
I'm tempted to deliberately meet someone who has the polar opposite music taste to me, so if it goes tits up I'll still be able to use my iPod without wiping the bloody thing clean.
No Distance Left To Run
I haven't listened to No Distance Left To Run since that night I cried myself to sleep 4 years ago.
Since I'm back at my mums now, maybe I'll try listening to it again tonight. In the same bed.
It could get emotional, but I doubt it, cos I met the girl the other week.
Dodged. A. Bullet.
I can listen to pretty much everything once more... but.. for a long time could not listen to Sigur Ros.. which was akin to 'music to slash your wrists by'...
(particularly as one ex gave me Takk on lovely triple vinyl, post us breaking up, for me to listen to. very considerate he was...)
...Especially if the music is great.
There is plenty that makes me cry but nothing I couldn't listen to.
My ex once said she hated hearing songs that reminded her of us as she wanted to enjoy them but I actually do enjoy them. It means you have lived through those songs and they have become part of you, good and bad.
My ex played them constantly and as a result I can't bring myself to listen to them ever again. The moral of a story here, folks, is never share anything you enjoy with a lady friend, 'cause when the shit eventually hits the fan it'll be ruined for you completely. Bitter? Me?
Wouldn't say I can't listen to it at all, but it's certainly imbued with shattering melancholy.
