I’ve never been a very musical person. I took a few piano lessons as a child, but I was never very inclined toward music. Even mainstream music was nothing special to me - I could take it or leave it. But when I started becoming very depressed and emotionally tormented at a young age, I derived so much comfort from the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album by The Smashing Pumpkins. I loved every song, every verse, every perfect, emotionally poignant line….they brought me comfort and hope, and probably kept me from doing something very stupid.
This is cover art from that album.
