July Mix: Missing You


Sometimes for whatever reason whether it be a breakup or just great distance separates us from someone special. At the risk of sounding like a young adult novel, it feels like a giant gaping hole in the pit of ones chest, and it sucks. It no doubt sucks more than anything should suck. How some people just manage to cope with it, I’ll never know. Myself on the other hand just has an overwhelming feeling of sadness that can’t even be tamed with a bowl of ice cream. And the next day it will feel like everything is going to be just fine. That’s life, I suppose. The other day, I sat down and made a playlist of songs that really just convey the feelings of missing someone so much it hurts a little bit more than normal. I wouldn’t say they necessarily help cope with the situation, but they definitely enable a little bit of feeling. I once heard somewhere, “That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.” So here’s an utterly depressing but beautiful playlist. Even if you’re not missing someone it’s still filled with beautiful music. Tracklisting will, as always, be behind the cut.

Available for streaming on: 8Tracks / Rdio / Spotify whichever tickles your fancy.
