This Will End in Tears
The Miserabilist Guide to MusicBook - 2012
This Will End in Tears is the first ever and definitive guide to melancholy music. Author Adam Brent Houghtaling leads music fans across genres, beyond the enclaves of emo and mope-rock, and through time to celebrate the albums and artists that make up the miserabilist landscape. In essence a book about the saddest songs ever sung, This Will End in Tears is an encyclopedic guide to the masters of melancholy--from Robert Johnson to Radiohead, from Edith Piaf to Joy Division, from Patsy Cline to The Cure--an insightful, exceedingly engaging exploration into why sad songs make us so happy.
