Terry Teachout blogs about music to upgrade one’s mood. Sounds good to me. I haven’t looked at his list as closely as I will later, but some of what I see would work for me. Some would not. And of course I have other tunes that I could add that would lift me up.

But then there are times when I simply don’t want to upgrade my mood. I just want to feel bad. I just want to hurt or ache or weep or whatever. That’s when I absolutely love to soak in music.

Is that pathetic? Wrong? Or just a good way to deal with a sad mood that I’m not ready to leave yet?
