Any suggestions, aint feeling too great and need to wallow in my mood please
Then you could do worse than a bit of Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl. I find that weirdly comforting...
'Avalanche' by Leonard Cohen
'New Dawn Fades' by Joy Division
'Faith' by The Cure
Why would my comforting songs comfort you?
I tend to play Old Folk and Blues to comfort me.
And a little Bob Dylan and Willy Mason as well.
and good secret machines stuff are quite comforting. any good paul simon stuff. jonathan richman. letting up despite great faults. and there's something about bruce springsteen... it's a musical "chin up, son."
title and registration-death cab for cutie
first day of my life-bright eyes
fond farewell-elliot smith
grounds for divorce-wolf parade
god i love my american indie rocky acousticy stuff now.
a song about suicide. Very comforting :)
is a bit like a friendly but elusive relative who comes round every few months, gives you gingerbread and a card with a fiver tucked inside, and tells you stories. he's amazing. and basically soundtracked my whole childhood.
i hate it when people say everythings going to be alright, but when paul simon says it it, i believe him
I'm excited about the new Springsteen album!!!!!!!
look at the !!!
Ah man, you've reminded me how much I love this song! It just sounds so pretty and lonely, I've listened to it 4 times tonight now.
Get "Lisbon" by Keith Fullerton Whitman. 40 minutes of ambient drone that'll take you away and make you feel great and content.
is so gorgeous. that song is an absolute gem and so is the album.
In my top 10 of all time probably.
No better album to wallow too.
like The Four Brothers/Bhundu Boys/Mahlthini And The Mahotella Queens or some Sly And The Family Stone. Stuff like this alwys cheers me up, listening to the African stuff just now.
nick cave & the bad seeds - song of joy.
or, um.. not.
off Pet Sounds. Pet Sounds generally really
lost cause by beck off of sea change. beautiful beautiful song. love it.
by Kings Of Convenience.
