Word Of Mouth's Wicked Weepy Playlist

Taylor Quimby (weeping out of frame)

Can't help singing along to your favorite sad songs in the shower, the car, or from the middle of a crowded street?  Looking for something to help you dwell on your latest breakup, or summon your personal demons?  Want to put something on the stereo that will dull your roomate's perversely happy attitude?  Word of Mouth has the playlist for you. 

 Selections include:

Nothing Compares 2U - Sinead O'Connor

Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now - The Smiths

Season In The Sun - Terry Jacks

No Name #1 - Elliott Smith

Puff The Magic Dragon - Peter, Paul, And Mary

Hello In There - John Prine

Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday

He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones

The Band Played Waltzing Matilda - The Pogues

Okay, so this is clearly just the beginning of Word of Mouth's Wicked Weepy Playlist... frankly, we ran out of tissues half-way through producing this montage.  Thanks to everyone who submitted their sad, sad, suggestions - if you think we've missed one of the world's most heartbreaking musical selections, add it to the growing list on our Facebook page!
