We ask a few millennials what songs they listen to when they’re sad

January is a whole year in itself!

If you’re anything like me, you dislike January: the promises of resolutions, the painfully low funds left after splashing out in December, and the lack of events on your social calendar. January has its way of creeping slowly, and making days seem like eons and eons of mundane activities, that can make anyone feel gloomy and low-spirited—particularly with the foggy harmattan mornings.

That’s why we here at the NATIVE have asked a few millennials what songs they listen to days they feel glum. Here are our some of our best picks, guaranteed to lift your mood or make you reach for a box of tissues—it’s your call.
