i wish there was a name for a kind of song that’s catchy, upbeat, and worth dancing to, but also bittersweet and tinged with an unexplainable sadness. 

the best i can describe it is ‘songs you would put in an amv when a long series is over and you’re reminiscing on the journey while holding back sobs’

good examples:

little talks (of monsters and men)

what you want (two door cinema club)

glad you came (the wanted)

sun is shining (axwell ingrosso)

i lived (onerepublic)

mr. big shot (anarbor)

Y’all I love this post and had to make a spotify playlist of all these songs, (including ones in the tags+replies)

Enjoy!

i’m glad to see people coming together with the same musical interest. i highly recommend looking through these, or adding your own! 

General observations about this post coming back to it after making the initial playlist;

Lots of Imagine Dragons. So much Imagine Dragons.

Several people have come up with names for this genre, my personal favorites being “dance melancholia” “musical reprise” and “depression bops”

I see the homestucks in the notes/replies. I knew putting How Far We’ve Come in would pull y’all out of the cracks

I put it in the playlist description but if you have suggestions pop me an ask or put them in the tags/your post reply! The playlist is still a work in progress, so any additions are welcome!

long live taylor swift

For sheer existential terror I would recommend this song:

What a lovely upbeat, bouncy song about why the everlasting fuq did you write a song about that?
