Good Songs for Bad Days

It’s one of those days. The ‘milk’ you poured over your last Weetabix resembled the yoghurt that ran out last week. Your bus wasn’t late- it just never arrived. The 65 minute walk you were forced to endure left you exhausted, windswept and with two juicy blisters on your heels. You eventually arrive and realise that you aren’t late, you’re early, 24 hours early. The event is actually tomorrow. It’s one of those days. One of those days that leave your heart feeling blistered. One of those days that leave you with more self pity than a Coldplay hit. But fear not. Those days have an antidote. It comes in the form of 10 songs to play when odds aren’t in your favour- first you indulge in your self-pity, then you shake off the blues. Cue the music..
