I know it's a common theme,

But the level of longing expressed in some of the songs my iPod is playing for me today is enough to make me, I don't know, want to scream and moan myself.

Examples:

"Long, Long, Long," by the Beatles
"How," by the Cranberries
"Starlings," by Elbow
"Dig a Pony," by the Beatles
"66," by Afghan Whigs

Songs that don't fit this hypothesis:

"Carousel," by Siouxsie and the Banshees
"Big Cheese," by Nirvana
"See Emily Play," by Pink Floyd
"Ugly," by Fishbone

Maybe I just need a nice long cry. And no, I don't need a reason.

  1. I actually used to have an entire playlist entitled "LONGING", because I had so many songs like that. It had a lot of Wallflowers in it. :)

    I think it has to do with working something important out in your life, with making some kind of transition.

  2. I think you're right, Hollie.
