Edge of Time - Gerhardt

Totally on a heart break trip at the moment - which is odd considering what’s going on in real life - but there’s so many great tracks that deal with the different aspects of falling in and out of love - and this is one.

And while the vast majority of heart break tracks deal with the pain of being left, or cheated on or God forbid - the loved one dying - I’m always more drawn to the tracks that place the responsibility for the break up on the protagonist - on us…

I’m in love with this song.

It’s exactly the kind of track I imagined might exist when I first started curating Music to Grieve To.

Suicide is the tragedy behind a number of tracks on this list - from artists taking their own lives to the horrific aftermath experienced by loved ones left behind - Suicide is a tough one and there are no easy answers…

Suspirium - Thom Yorke

This is a waltz.

But this is also an offering, an offering of sweat and tears, a sea of tears for each and everyone of the deceased troubled souls of this world, dead without an inch of mercy, left too early or too suddenly, left without explanation, left without compassion, killed without regret, left with all their wounds fresh, left broken and fragmented, left without a moment of silence, without anyone to mourn them…

What It Is - Autumn Dawn Leader

I like Autumn Leader - I like this track - and while it’s a little more raw than the majority of the songs on this playlist - the lyric is undeniable. Followers of the list will be familiar with my particular disdain for platitudes and positive messages - inspirational quotes - in quotes - make me want to throw up - preferably on the person who posted them…
