30 Day Song Challenge: A Sad Song


Posted By on Mon, Mar 14, 2011 at 12:40 PM


Coast Listings Editor, music aficionado and fellow Tall Woman Allison Saunders has kindly chimed in with her own personal entry for today's 30 Day Song Challenge posting; a song that makes you sad. She picked Feist - "Let It Die."
She explains:

This was the theme song to a very sad August in a shitty, dark and damp basement apartment on Jubilee Road many moons ago. My two roommates renamed our seasonal-affective-disorder-inducing home the Heartbreak Hotel and healed their wounds with this track, booze and junior bacon cheeseburgers. And while I wasn't heartbroken at the time...for some reason this song had the ability to make me sad enough to join in on their sorrow. There's just something about "Let it Die" that makes me want to curl up in the fetal position and have myself a good old fashioned pity party.

Incidentally, I have also lived in a shitty home affectionately dubbed "The Heartbreak Hotel." I don't remember why we gave the house that particular name, but giant squirrels used to jump onto our window screens from the branches and have sex.
