    A soul gets sublime into the oceans of sorrow due to many reasons in life. It may have several reasons. We all get ups and downs in the life. These small segments of life have very long lasting effects on our mind. Music again plays an important role in these worse situations too. The segment of music which is applicable to such situations may be said as Melancholic music. It is a darker and sadder version of music which enables a person to dilute his/her grief. It is said the sad music is just like a fragrant stick whose fragrance stays for a longer period of time.

    Melancholic music has a long lasting effect. It helps in satisfying a sad soul and mind. It gives us a warm experience to our sad feelings. Some of the most musical songs which drag a persons' heart into great relaxation are Love is Blindness, The Lonely Shepherd, Annie's Song, Brothers in Arms, and I'm With You. These are some of the songs which might blow your soul, while you are in a pessimistic mood.

    Several movies and videos which are developed under a tragic sequence or title require this type of music. It is very difficult to produce a perfect tragic scene without the help of sad music. It has a great appeal to the audience. Forlorn music helps the scene and situation to be more realistic and alluring to the spectators.

    It will sound awkward but it is true that romantic movies also require melancholic music. It is used at the situations when the heart of the hero gets broken by the heroine. It is also used in the departure scenes when the two loving people leave each others hand. These are unique situations which add more life to the movie or video. They help out in making the scene more sensational.

    With the advancement of technology it has become very easy to develop melancholic music. Guitars, synthesizers, sampler, and other musical instruments are used to produce a perfect gloomy music. Natural sounds such as gushing of water and sound of air flow is also used in this music. There is a wide collection of such music available on the internet. Various websites allow free downloading of the music. This music is very supportive for reducing the burden of your heart. They support your tearful and gloomy eyes with their soft and silent musical nodes.
