Edit: For anybody who's reading this because (for some reason) I'm one of the first google hits for that Amanda Palmer lyric, I did actually write a much more Amanda-oriented post after I saw her show here in Chicago on December 3rd.
I read this on some random stranger's journal over at okcupid, but it's something I think about a lot. What do you listen to when you are hurt, feeling sad and lonely and rejected by somebody you love? Alternately, what do you read or watch? The answers over at okc ranged from Jeff Buckley (which I personally can get behind, although this time I'm not as stuck on Hallelujah as on Last Gooodbye and Lover, You Should've Come Over) to Weird Al (?) to reading Dorothy Parker. I wonder if more people immerse themselves in sadness or happiness? Longing or moving on? (Somebody also mentioned Since You Been Gone.) I personally tend to opt for anger shading into sorrow and bitterness. In order: Ani (when I was like 19), Dresden Dolls and Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah, and now Fiona Apple and the other Jeff Buckley. I'd like to know what other people think, if you feel inclined to comment.
