The Sad Playlist: Songs For When You Need A Good Cry


You may be going through a bad day or burnout or whatever it is that is making you feel so down. It doesn’t matter what time of the day you begin to feel blue. A good cry is definitely a need for this. It might feel self-soothing and emotionally rooted. Plus, it even feels better when music fuels it. So, prepare your tissues and puffy eyes.

The Sad Playlist: Songs For When You Need A Good Cry

Deja Vu – Olivia Rodrigo

Ever gone through a breakup and found your ex exploring the same things that you did, but with another lover? The sad reminisce of a past relationship is a normal but weird sensation. That’s probably why this song pierces through our hearts like it’s a self-confession.

I’ll Never Love Again – Lady Gaga

Lament over a departed love (even if you don’t have one) with this very emotional and heartfelt song. It narrates the aftermath of loss and the impossibility of replicating romantic feelings with somebody else.

All I Ask – Adele

This piano-driven song lets you envision two sad people in a fading relationship, one asking to fulfill a heart’s plea to pretend like everything’s still okay, even just for the last time.

The Ones We Once Loved – Ben&Ben

This sad song translates into a journey after a breakup – pain, goodbyes, forgiveness, closure, and healing. As the song implies, some of our loved ones are not meant to stay; they’re just meant to be a lesson in our lives.

Glimpse of Us – Joji

This track is the fanciest way to say that you’re missing someone, even if you try to be with somebody else. It’s a tough internal confession but in real situations, it’s unhealthy. Soft warning: It’s okay to ponder, but don’t send this song to your ex-lover during the wee hours.

Happier – Ed Sheeran

Doesn’t it ache when you see your loved one becomes happier without you? If you’re in the same situation, know that you’ll feel that too, but pain needs to be felt first to achieve greater and authentic happiness.

The Scientist – Coldplay

Relationships, of any kind, are not easy commitments. The vocalist analyzes his past romantic relationship, like puzzles, numbers, and science, figuring out what could have been done to save a neglected and complex love.

We hope this playlist shared your sadness during your emo state and most importantly, we hope you become okay soon after a good cry. What’s your favorite sad song?
