Three records to which I cry

Every so often, I get the blues on Sundays. Don't ask me why. Probably because the weekend is ending, probably because I am often alone in my room.

Here are the albums that I end up putting on. Because they are beautiful, perfect (only because they are imperfect) and utterly tragic:

1. Pink Moon- Nick Drake

And my favorite song off of the album, "Place to Be":

2. Sea Change- Beck

Cheesy/but also kinda cool video for "Lost Cause" off of the album:

3. Either/Or- Elliott Smith

"Between the Bars" is my favorite Elliott Smith song. Disclaimer: This video will make you cry:

What are your three favorite melancholy records?


  1. hmmm,i don't think any album i have is entirely melancholy. but the three songs that indulge my sad tendencies:

    1. November-Azure Ray
    2. Ballgame-Kevin Devine
    3. How to Fight the Lonliness-Wilco

    great blog : )

  2. Sea change is definitely the soundtrack to my self indulgent melancholic moods.

    Songs: Ohia - Didn't It Rain (though last year it was The Lioness)
    and Bon Iver.

    wait, does Dashboard Confessional count?
