To Listen: March Sadness

by Hannah Williamson

March sure is great! For us in the northern hemisphere, spring has arrived, the earth is finally beginning to thaw out, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, your heart grows warmer with the temperature–

unless it doesn’t. Sometimes, for reasons known or unknown, just because winter ends, we can’t shake off our sadness. Sometimes, you just need to lie in your bed, curse the birds that are joyfully announcing sunshine, and listen to sad music. Fuck March Madness, you’ve got March Sadness. We’re right there with ya, so we’ve compiled 20 songs to get you through those times and hopefully lead you out to the other end, because parks and lakes aren’t going to enjoy themselves in these fleeting spring afternoons. We love you!
