This summer has been quite the bummer, right? We here at Tell Me Something got to thinking: What is the biggest bummer song? You know, that song that you put on and to make yourself feel sad and super Zach Braff-y. Well, there's really only one way to find out and that's an incredibly sad, deeply depressing and somewhat biased look at the songs that bring us down the most presented in a confusing and, again, biased form.
Over the past month we have collected what we think are some of the biggest bummer songs of our life. Eight writers have picked two songs each that will go head to head in a 'Sweet Sixteen' style bracket (or as much of a bracket as we can comprehend, we're clearly not sports people). These writers will share their case for why this song is such a downer and we will (arbitrarily?) pick a winner and in the end hope to find the biggest bummer.
I'm not going to lie, it's going to be sad, it will bum you out. The best part is you can totally listen to the entire playlist on Spotify and cry in your childhood bedroom realizing that life is meaningless and you will never feel as loved as you were when you were a child. Have suggestions? Tweet @TMSDOTORG or let us know on Facebook (social media, ugh) Take a look at the bracket and pick your favorites now. This is going to be a bloodbath.
* We've decided to omit songs from musicals just because there are more than 16 songs on the Les Miserables soundtrack.
