Most of our focus this month has been on unsigned and emerging female artists around the world as March is Women’s History Month in certain countries. After being approached by a friend of mine a few weeks ago about my rather “strange” addiction to sad and depressing music, I’ve decided to share some of my favourite sad songs. I have this instant connection with melancholic songs, for some odd reason, sad songs make me happy.
It’s not just any sad song though — the production has to be captivating, the singers vocals has to be compelling, the songs content has to be relatable and the chorus/hook has to be infectious. Alternative R&B and alternative pop are my go to genres for sad songs, and I had this idea of creating a….. Wait for it; “sad boys club” — an underground club for broken hearted men, a great alternative to drugs, alcohol and the biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK — suicide. A safe place where men can meet like-minded people and share their personal experiences while these songs below play out loud in the background.
Here’s a selection of songs below:
