Calming Music to Scream Along With

Posted on

Yesterday I told you about my not-so-excellent interviewing skills, so today I’d like to share with you my coping mechanism for dealing with such a humiliating defeat. When leaving the embarrassing situation, in this case the job interview, there are two options:

  1. Analyse what went wrong, what went well, and then make adjustments for next time.
  2. Repression

I usually don’t like the healthy, rational way of doing things, so I tend to go for option two: repression, my absolute favourite Freudian defence mechanism. This is how it’s done: when leaving the job interview, it’s essential to stop thinking about what happened in there immediately! Until I get to my car I distract myself thinking about something else. Usually, singing the song Taco Flavored Kisses by J-Lo in my head works well enough until I’ve crossed the parking lot. And here’s the key point: when inside the car I put on my playlist of calming music (which has carefully been put together for this exact purpose). I then crank down the windows (screw the rain!), turn the volume up to “mind numbing” and sing along as loudly as I possibly can.

So without further ado, I present a selection of music that without fail always works wonders for my mood!

“I feel the air rush out! Out from the centre, not like one side is any better”

.

“All these words they make no sense, I find bliss in ignorance”

.

“I don’t care what you think as long as it’s about me. The best of us can find happiness in misery”

.

“Hate me all you want, I’ll be okay. I’m half the world away, I’m letting you go now”

.

“I can’t slow down, I won’t be waiting for you, I can’t stop now because I’m dancing!”
