Why do we like this?

Are there any other emotions that work together quite as well as happiness and sadness? Like, being angry and scared is just stressful. Trust mixed with anticipation? A tad bland. Joy and sorrow though makes for a wonderful blend. It gives us nostalgia, wistfulness, and romance.

Fleet Foxes' "Can I Believe You" balances almost perfectly between the two opposing feelings I'm writing about. I also find that what is best with sorrowful melodies is that there's a solid rhythm to it too. It's like grieving while dancing, which I've 100% read somewhere is a common therapy tactic in some parts of the world.

If you're looking for more of this confusing, yet enchanting, music, I semi-regularly update a Wistful melodies playlist,here. I'm still making my way through Fleet Foxes' new album, Shore, but I trust them, so give it a go if you're curious.
