Saying goodbye with a song

The sincere side of the artist, when you can't seem to find the words the music expresses your feelings and helps you get over those rough times. Feeling the weight of emotions, I said goodbye with a soaring melody that rose up into the night sky. My feelings echoed through instruments and my soulful voice. Each note and each word deeply expressed all the thoughts and moments we'd shared together. I admitted my sorrow to both of us, but also how lucky I was to have had those moments and our relationship in my life at all. This song bookmarked the duration of our time together, reaching a bittersweet crescendo that left us both smiling with tears in our eyes and an imprint on our hearts forevermore.

Death Music: The Sincere Side of the Artist
Music has a special way of connecting with us when we're going through tough times. It can express emotions beyond what we're able to articulate, and provide us with the comfort and empathy that we need in difficult moments. This is particularly true when it comes to death music - a genre that deals with themes of mortality, grief, and loss. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the history of this genre, discuss some iconic songs and their impactful lyrics, and explore why death music can be so powerful for both the artist and the listener.
Death music has been around for centuries, with different cultures and countries incorporating themes of death into their musical traditions. In Western music, death metal became a popular subgenre in the 1980s, characterized by its heavy sound and dark lyrics. However, death music isn't limited to just one genre - it spans across several, including rock, pop, folk, and classical music. From Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton, to Goodbye My Lover by James Blunt, to Requiem For A Dream by Clint Mansell, death music has been created by artists across all musical styles.
What makes death music so impactful is its ability to capture the full range of emotions associated with grief and loss. For those experiencing tragedy, death music can express the pain, anger, confusion, and sadness that they're feeling in ways that words often can't. For those looking to empathize with someone who's going through a difficult time, it can provide understanding and a feeling of shared humanity. And for artists, creating death music can be cathartic - a way to come to terms with their own mortality, or to process their own experiences of loss.
One of the most iconic examples of death music is Knocking On Heaven's Door, written by Bob Dylan and famously covered by Guns N' Roses. With lyrics like Mama, put my guns in the ground, I can't shoot them anymore, the song is a poignant reflection on the idea of death as a release from pain and suffering. Another well-known example is Everybody Hurts by R.E.M., a soulful ballad that reminds us that we're not alone in our grief. Through lyrics like When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone, don't let yourself go, 'cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes, the song is a reminder that pain and sadness are universal, and that we can find solace in the common humanity we share.
In conclusion, death music is a genre that speaks to the most difficult and universal experiences of human life. It can help us acknowledge and process our emotions, provide comfort in times of sorrow, and foster a shared sense of empathy and understanding. Whether it's through the soaring melodies of a power ballad or the driving pulse of a heavy metal track, death music has the power to move us in ways that other music genres can't. It reminds us of the complexity and beauty of life, and the importance of connecting with others in times of both joy and sorrow.

Sad songs improve mood

Okay, let’s face it, even to the most optimistic, exuberant, shining among us happen to have bad days. Those days when our mood translates into seeing everything dyed black. What is called blue modo. And even on these occasions we seek refuge in music. Something to sink into with our pain. An old hit of a pop myth like Sir Elton John (we’re talking about Sad songs, a song released in 1984) says that in some moments we all need someone with whom to share our sorrows and listening to the words of some old singer we can share with him the pain we already know. Generally in choosing what we listen to we tend to prefer songs that confirm our mood. You will probably agree that it is unlikely that at a particularly happy time we will want to listen to sad music, so the opposite is also true.
Listening involves the empathy effect: The fact that someone else is suffering enough to decide to write and put his suffering to music makes every single word that comes out of his mouth assume for us a precise meaning that leads us to share that particular mood. And when what it expresses comes close to what we are experiencing ourselves, the effect is to make us feel understood by someone who has already experienced what we are experiencing in that moment. Listening has the power of distracting and reassuring us, offering us relief. Identifying ourselves in the words we hear reassures us and makes us see our troubles from a new perspective, helps us in the process of accepting the problem and urges us to react. If sadness is an aspect of life that we cannot avoid, facing it is the best way not to be conditioned by it.
