I have a touch of the inexplicable melancholy so no nail polish. Instead I have a playlist of depressing music. The most amusing part is that it's not all metal, either. I have range...
1. Carina Round - For Everything A Reason
I heard this song on "American Horror Story" and I found it to be well...haunting.
2. The Cure - Bloodflowers
I love this band so much. And, they've always been at their best when they are truly depressing.
3. Antony and The Johnsons - Hope There's Someone
The vocals are definitely different on this but, oh, does this song just break my heart.
4. Crystal Castles featuring Robert Smith - Not In Love
This is a cover song, originally performed by a Canadian band I had never heard of. This has a full on 80's vibe, very stark and cold. I adore it.
5. Moonspell - Mute
My favorite band and probably one of my most favorite songs ever. Without Moonspell, I am mute.
6. Katatonia - Inheritance
I could add so many Katatonia songs but I will narrow down to this only one. This was my theme song last winter. I had many, many inconvenient burdens.
(May I also suggest, Passing Bird, The Future of Speech, In The White, No Good Can Come of This, New Night and Departer? To name just a few...)
7. Deep Purple - When A Blind Man Cries
Oh, how I love Purple. Mark II is one of my favorite line-ups if only for Ian Gillan. His voice gives me chills.
8. Gary Moore and Phil Lynott - Parisenne Walkways
This is a classic weeper, yo. These two men were such a brilliant team together.
9. Amalia Hoje - Grito
This is from a tribute supergroup to the legendary Amalia Rodrigues. One of the members and the singer of this particular song is Fernando Ribeiro of Moonspell. I found the most enchanting translation of the lyrics here: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/grito-scream.html
I hope any Portugese readers will let me know how good the translation is though.
10. Thin Lizzy - Still In Love With You
If you can't appreciate Thin Lizzy, we can't be friends. Phil Lynott and Gary Moore were so amazing together.
Grab your Kleenex and have a good cry. It can do wonders for the soul.
