My ex attempted suicide.

Sorry to hear it. So, this list features 15 tracks of mood swings from song to song where appropriate, but it’s all got roughly the same move. When these things happen, there’s nothing that a patronizing internet stranger can do but make a wildly inappropriate but wholly appropriate mix.
