Guilt Music

I'm going to attempt to do this memey thing called 30 Days of Song. I will not post this every day, because oh-my-pants-I'm-bored-already. Instead I'll post once or twice a week, as I feel like. So there. I am unrepentantly stealing this from Jen O. at My Tornado Alley. She rocks. I'm not sure if she stole it from somewhere, but here we go. 

Also, we are in the home stretch ya'll. We may finish this before I die.

A Song that Makes Me Feel Guilty

So, I understand the basic premise that music invokes emotion. I understand that guilt is really about emotion. What I don't really guilt is feeling guilty when you hear a song. I tried to think of a song that reminds me of something that makes me feel guilty, a song that was playing when I did something I regret, a song I feel guilty about liking... And... I've just got nothing. I mean, I feel guilt. Pretty much continuous guilt. I feel guilty about things that are my fault that happened 15 years ago, things that aren't my fault at all, things that sort of happened near me, things that I am a little bit at fault for, but so are some other people. I have guilt.

And I guess that there should be music for that guilt. But, I don't know. I guess silence is my guilt music. Both make me exceptionally uncomfortable. Another thing that makes me uncomfortable is funerals. Quiet funerals of people I felt guilty too would be sort of hell. Especially if they were crowded and there were mice. (I may be derailing here.) Therefore, a figured a song about stealing someone's ashes from their funeral would fit nicely here. Even if it doesn't make me feel guilty.
