Sad songs. This mix is all sad songs. Sad, all up in your guts. Do you feel that? That's sadness, getting all up in there.

Here we have Half Japanese covering Big Mama Thornton with great result. Jad Fair's scream throughout the song sounds like that of a 12 year old girl in a torture chamber. Awesome. Sad.

Track 9 from Toy Love
Length: 00:02:43
Year: 1980
Track Description:
Toy Love were about the best thing to ever come out of New Zealand, and surely one of the most under-appreciated post-punk groups of their era. Toy Love were the starting point for Chris Knox, who would later go on to form The Tall Dwarfs, as well a solo career. Oh, and the song is sad. In the chorus he questions whether a friends suicide would have ill-effect on him. A sad position to be in, indeed.

Track 2 from Dizrythmia
Length: 00:03:02
Year: 1977
Track Description:
Another group from New Zealand. Split Enz were the first vehicle of the Finn Brothers, who weould become accountable for the crime that was Crowded House. They had a hit in America with "I Got You", but they were pretty much creatively drained at that point. However, before younger brother Neil Finn became the main song writer of the group, they had a string of really great albums. And the song I put on the mix is sad.It's about love-lost. That's some sad shit.

Track 8 from Punk Rock
Length: 00:02:30
Year: 2003
Track Description:
One of my favorite songs of all-time, although I'm not a huge Mekons fan. The original late-70's version of the song wasn't much to get excited over, but the version they would go on to perform live (and release in 2003) had some really great energy to it. The song is about a guy declaring his love for a woman to the extent that he would allow himself to be a cuckold. Due to it's sad, yet oddly uplifting, feel it ended up in heavy rotation during my last couple of break-ups. To it's credit, it stands alone outside of the context of the memories I have of those situations; the song defeated my ex-girlfriends and the drama. But it's still sad. Sad.

Track 5 from It's Kinda Funny
Length: 00:03:47
Year: 1980
Track Description:
Josef K were the primary influence of The Smiths, so it shouldn't be hard for one to imagine how one of their songs might be sad. It has the word "funny" in the title, but believe, it's sad.

Year: 1980
Track Description:
The Feelies: Great group, sad song. And more should be appreciative of the kind of their guitar work, some of which can be found in this song (sad). Million and Mercer weren't exactly Jimmy Page-clones, but they far exceeded their peers.

Track 4 from Bible Of Bop
Length: 00:04:03
Year: 1982
Track Description:
Sad song from former Soft-Boys lead guitarist Kimberly Rew. Like both of the Finn Brothers, Rew was a talented musician who would inexplicably he go on to commit a music felony, as he was partly responsible for the song "Walking On Sunshine" as a member of Katrina & The Waves. However, unlike that song, "Fighting Someone's War" is top-notch quality. And sad. Suicide and such.

Track 7 from Kaleidoscope World
Length: 00:04:01
Year: 1986
Track Description:
Another great New Zealand group (is there a word like "anglophile" for New Zealand?). "Pink Frost" is a story about of a man with his dying girlfriend in his arms, who he presumably killed (although it's not explained how), and man is he sad about it.

Track 1 from Spooked
Length: 00:06:22
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Robyn Hitchcok is another ex-Soft Boy. And he is a genius. "Television" is one of the creepiest songs ever written. It's about a man having a love-affair with his television set. No metaphor there, either. A man who is litarly in love with his television. You would think such an idea would come off forced, or over-the-top, but nope. Hitchcock really treated it as if it were a genuinely sad love-ballad and it works, although it's deeply satirical, still.

Track 1969 from It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best
Length: 00:02:39
Year: 1969
Track Description:
It's too bad Karen Dalton's recording career was so short, because she was one of the few folk artists I can stomach. She was apparently a legend in the NYC folk community, admired by Dylan, etc. She never did manage to gain much attention outside of that circle, though. And she was a sad lady. "Substitute" is actually a pretty clever song. It's about a woman claiming to be crazy about a new "substitute" she found for a past-love. It's sad, obviously.

Track 10 from Ain't My Lookout
Length: 00:04:47
Year: 1996
Track Description:
The Grifters might be the only early 90's slack-rock groups I care for, although they had more of a blues based backbone (and could actually play their instruments). This song, which is sad, is a little out of character for them. But it succeeds in it's attempt at sadness.

Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!
