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’
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)
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?
