Y’all know I love me some sad songs. It’s what got me started writing.

If you’re into ballads the way I am, then you’re going to love this website. Found out about it this morning, courtesy of the ASCAP Daily Brief, a music business and tech newsletter put together by publisher/ASCAP board member Dean Kay.

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is, believe it or not, exactly that. It’s an extensive list of interesting and unheard of troubles that ail people, in the form of phobias, sensations, and desires. Each term is explored in a beautifully composed video, with complete with narration.

So tonight, light a candle and write your next tragic ballad. Write on!
