    I know this might sound strange but does anyone else have songs that are simply TOO good that listening to them makes you sad?



    That song makes me feel like I'm missing something. It makes me think of girls that I will meet in the future. I dunno', something about it is simply so good it makes me sad.

    Do others get this or am I the only one?

    And yes i've been drinking

    EDIT: OK given the responses I'll add a little. Even though the song is happy and awesome it brings back much missed memories, memories you'd give anything to relive. Maybe it reminds you of someone you lost contact with. All in all it's a truly awesome song but you just can't listen to it anymore.

    I know what you mean--sounds outrageous but there is one song that still, after listening to it for over 2 years now, gives me goosebumps each time. I think when you like a song enough, the expectation of it can make you apprehensive because you know its epic

    For me it's Infinity by Guru Josh Project, not so much because the song is amazing or something but simply because of the memories it brings back... wow, just wow is all I can say. Those are some truly wicked memories with friends, will be remembered forever.

    yeah there are a couple of songs which make me think, ouch, the last time i listened to this was when *insert touchy emotional situation*. i havent listened to a track and thought 'this is so good i cant listen to it', because it wouldn't be a good track if i didnt want to listen to it.
