The mental and physical energy required to be productive is enormous; things get heavy.
That’s where this playlist comes in handy. The songs selected here have less to do with genre, artist and age than they do their shared emotional dyslexia. That’s why, if there’s any confusion, “Cormega” and the dulcet tones of The Smiths are in the same tracklist.
From the apoplectic fear of losing a lover in 100 gecs’ “800 db cloud” to the outright anxiety of Ornette Coleman’s “Lonely Woman,” the reality of falling apart mentally is communicated through these songs.
In brief, it feels better to know others get it. I have for you: A Playlist for Your Biweekly Nervous Breakdown.
