The problem with Billie holiday in general, and her Good Morning Heartache in particular, is that it isn't "Gosh I feel kind of blue today, maybe I'll eat some donuts". No, it's more like where is that GD vein? I can't stand this a minute longer.

Hey, don't worry. I can likely control the damage with enough vodka.

Seems like a natural progression on a melancholy thread. I'll get over it, my veins are hard to find.

A couple of my current favorites that haven't already been mentioned:

Eddie Vedder's (of Pearl Jam fame) Into the Wild soundtrack. (You probably need to see the movie or read the book to get the full effect from the album.)

Jimmy Buffett's One Particular Harbour

Little River Band's Cool Change (as you might have already guessed)

Yes: I am too much of a Luddite to figure out how to embed the YouTube links.

My paste on this one didn't work last post.

Kicks ass and is a downer all at the same time.




For the trly most melancholy song of all time, how about Send In The Clowns by Judy Collins. Such a bummer I don't even want to link it.

Best Boy-Girl Tune Since Maggie May. Highly melancholic, if that appeals to you.

I'm doing what I can to exorcise this demon that has been unleashed in our bosoms.

ER relevant, & reminiscent of early Beatles!
