A playlist for mental health struggles: submissions

Accepting song submissions, any genre... subject matter is songs dealing with the struggle with mental health. Either your mental health, friends or family mental health. The song could be uplifting or depressing. It could be the one song that helped you get out of depression or it could be the song that perfectly describes your private demons.

 

Mixed it up.

 

Thanks, Jack

Thinking about mental health, the first Ep what comes up to my mind is 'Kid See Ghosts'  by Kid Cudi and Kanye West. A great experience if you haven't listen to it.

 

I got one of the tracks on my 'Mellow Music' list called 'Reborn'  if you are interested to have alisten and maybe leave a follow?

Hi Jack,

 

my band Reaching North released it's first single yesterday.

It's called 'Shadows' and it's a song I wrote about some of my depressive thoughts.

 

For me the song is about depressive thought, and just like shadows, they will probably always be around. It's something I will have to deal with, because just like Shadows, they won't probably go away.

Anyway, I hope this song will have something in it for you.

 

If there is anything, let me know.

 

Kind regards,

Tjerk Goselink

Tjerk I added your song. I was searching for a band Shadows at first. Never name your band Shadows. 500 bands with that name LOL.

Once I realized my foolish ways I got you on my list.

 

Nice song, kind of like Evanescence with a male singer. Lots of emotion.

Creating these melancholic ambient tracks helped me to get over my depression. I hope you will find them soul healing ! Enjoy! ;)

hey great idea for a playlist—music can be so therapeutic in times of mental anguish

 

my bands latest single fits into this mood lyrically but through a distinct narrative, that being the depression, anger and mental struggles one has to go through when dealing with cancer to either themselves or a loved one. though of course it doesn't have to be cancer, any type of grief could be inferred from the song lyrics

other songs off the top of my head abt mental health include

 

Of Montreal - Heimdalsgate Like a Promethean Curse

The Angelic Process - any of their songs really

Brand New - Same Logic (Teeth)

Radiohead - Exit Music (For A Film)

also Radiohead - No Surpises

Alice in Chains - Nutshell

Elliott Smith - pretty much his entire catalogue, but Twilight, Between the Bars, Christian Brothers are all hard-hitting
