“What came first, the music or the misery?” Nick Hornby on love songs
Fall Out Boy is a perfect example of a band whose music, and more importantly, lyrics can alleviate and drop your mood in seconds. But I actually do have a quite diverse taste in music, the one and only thing I look for in a good tune is great lyrics. What I cannot deny, however, is that often the music I listen to exaggerates my mood. When we were younger, my best friend and myself used to have this habit of listening to our iPods 2 nd generation nano whilst doodling in notebooks. Should this stop?

Do all those records turn you into a melancholy person? People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands - literally thousands - of songs about broken hearts and pain and misery and loss.

HIGH FIDELITY What Came first? The Music or the Misery?
A recent conversation with a friend regarding our respective love lives took a turn for the dismal as such conversations so often do. Long after our conversation ended, the question stuck with me. Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music? The fact of the matter is this: as much as I like to whine about it , my love life has never been that terrible. I have a lovely life, but their are certain songs that inevitably throw me into a downward spiral of misery. You want poppy, bubbly, energetic songs.
