I have been in a nostalgic mood lately, listening to songs from the 1970's ad 1980's intently. My childhood. My youth. Yet since I came back here and even posted, an even older song from before my current birth doesn't leave my mind. I probably posted it here already. Forgive me that I am doing the broken record again. But I just love this song.
And I still love this from my current life
Was looking for this and found it! The mashup done by New Wave band Soft Cell, this 12in version was released in 1981.
Soft Cell - Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go
Revisiting old favorites
Peter Murphy – Cuts You Up (Lyric video)
I'm having a realization about my relation with music. That I listen to happy songs and think they sound sad, or sad songs and think they sound happy...I frequently misjudge the emotion behind a song, I guess. I noticed that a lot of songs on my "sad playlist" are happy songs, at least according to the majority of the comments.
Often I think sad songs are intended as an emotional release, which in itself can make a dark situation seem brighter. As for supposedly happy songs sounding sad, I suppose there is, perhaps what you were saying, a very personal, individualistic response. We are not all obliged to like the same things or to respond in an expected way. Though you may have been hinting at something deeper.
