There’s a dark cloud over my head, today, P-Dubs — literally and figuratively. I mean, we haven’t even reached the last week of August, and yet for the past few days, it’s been chilly and overcast here in New York. What happened to summer? More importantly, why don’t I have a good, solid playlist of totally depressing songs for days like this? Clearly, I need one, so I’m going to start by listing my five favorite dirges, then you guys can each add five of your own. Let’s get the pity party started!
