It is sad rather how people criticize what they don’t understand. After all, felicitykendle, how could you hope to understand somthing new using only the tools you know? By the same logic, your dull and boring, nothing new can come out of people whom only see the world through your eyes.
I second what rockosurf said.
Some people like melancholie, it's nice to have songs that go with our thoughts and feelings. When I'm down, I feel better when I hear a sad song. To know that someone shares thoughts/experience/feelings on the state of the world and civilization is comforting.
