Nostalgic

You know when you get nostalgic for a time that was never good? You start listening to all those sad but pretty songs, the ones you like a lot but can only listen to when you're drunk or distraught to egg on your sadness. You start remembering all these times in your life like a movie scene, where everything hurts but was so beautiful. Really though, it was a terrible time, some time you tried to get out of. That, or it was a good time that you're projecting all your sad romances onto. You romanticize everything, but remind yourself that your memory is deceiving you. Still, it feels good in a cry-yourself-to-bits sort of way.

Playlist:

Mum: Green Grass of Tunnel
Kings of Convenience: I Don't Know What I Can Save You From
Beirut: Postcards From Italy
Aphex Twin: Avril 14th
Antony and the Johnsons: Bird Girl
Old Crow Medicine Show: Wagon Wheel
Sia: Breathe Me
Sigur Ros: Saeglopur

I am such a sucker for sad songs. Ah, but The Strokes are bringing me back to reality.
