MondayMusic: Songs For When Everything Sucks
Let's face it, life can suck sometimes. There will always be long workdays where nothing seems to work for you, misunderstandings with your partner, and days that make you feel down. Although some people like to dwell on these days. There are people who prefer to blast music like there is no tomorrow.
Turning Tables – Adele
Every Adele song is the 💣. People who had been in a relationship might be able to relate to this. According to Adele, it was written following a confrontation with her former boyfriend. She had been distressed about the way her ex had kept "turning the tables" on her during their arguments. Have you experienced that?
I Won’t Give Up - Jason Mraz
It’s a sweet song which perfectly describes a realistic yet healthy relationship between two people who have their ups and downs. It also pledges to work through problems to keep their relationship strong. Wondering why this is included here? Well, this sweet ballad is laced with more hope than despair, making for a curious fit on this playlist.
Keep Holding On - Avril Lavigne
There are (figuratively) better and sadder Avril Lavigne songs out there. But we’ve decided to add “Keep Holding On” here. This song is notable for being featured on the soundtrack to the 2006 dragon drama film Eragon. Like what the lyrics say, “Keep holding on, just stay strong, ‘cause you know I’m here for you” (Well, someone will be there for you).
The Climb - Miley Cyrus
If you think that nothing seems to work for you, this is the right one to make you feel better. It is about facing odds that seem hopeless but if you continue to "climb" towards your dreams sooner or later it will all be worth it. So always believe that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. 👊
Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots
Twenty One Pilots might not sound familiar to you. But when you hear this song from them, you might start listening to the rest of their music discography. The song compares the carefree days of childhood with the stresses of being an adult. Adulting is really hard, no? Just like the lyrics say “Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days. When our momma sang us to sleep but now, we're stressed out.”
Life is not always great. And, there are times you may not even feel OK. That’s natural. So instead of trying to push these emotions away accept and process them. You can even try to listen to music such as the songs included here.
