Marinate in Melancholy: A Playlist of Wonderfully Miserable Songs

For a lot of people January is a time filled with promise. A fresh start. A clean slate. So many things that weren't conceivably possible a few weeks ago suddenly become attainable goals.

It's not so much the hollow gesture, it's the way this automated new year greeting has become some sort of demand that really gets my goat.

To fly in the face of these donut-dodging, joy-stuffed, 30-day detoxers, DiS decided to spend so-called 'Blue Monday' canvassing our community for their favourite "wonderfully miserable" songs. The Nostalgia Machine. 30 Albums That Define Cool. Any album “list” is going to be incomplete.

Estoy seguro de que tus ojos disfrutarán el masaje psicodélico, pero los efectos posteriores son incalculables.

Intentarás explicarte lo que pasa, pero lo único que vas a lograr es enredarte en un laberinto de palabras que te llevará a un callejón sin salida y a un espejo. Subirá la marea, no sabrás distinguir dónde empieza la costa de la realidad y terminan las aguas del sueño. Twitter del autor: @SustanciaD. Search for Music Using Your Voice.

Among the (actually quite gorgeous) twinkling and twirling, Roughton declares (actually quite prettily) that “I am lost, so lost”. It’s not quite ‘screw everything, let’s party’, but it is an admission, after so much gonzoid hubris, that the solutions might not be found down the disco, but at least the conversation can begin.
