Welcome one and all! To the Pity Party! Feeling sorry for yourself? Prefer to spend your Valentine’s Day amongst a bevvy of tear stained tissues and emptied bottles of vodka then man, do we have a playlist for you?
Static Lines – The Creases
Ever spent a night at a party watching the one you love with the one they love? This is a song about that (and it’s catchy as hell).
Although this is one of the saddest songs ever written (and reportedly the song Kurt Cobain was listening to when committing suicide) it was a point of contention in the office. Why? Its title ‘Everybody Hurts’. I’m sorry but this pity party has a closed door policy and there is only room for one. So for the purpose of this list we will change the name to ‘Mainly I Hurt’.
At last we come to the crescendo of crying in to your pillow. Nazareth’s ‘Love Hurts’ has to be the most perfectly pitiful song we have ever heard. Enough passion to cry and powerful enough to scream, what more could you want?
