Weekly Playlist: Leaving

By Grace Poole

We’re back for the [in]Visible Magazine playlist, round two!

For this week’s playlist we delve into the theme of leaving.

Songs about a lover leaving without a word. Songs about missing someone who left you. Songs about breakups and the past.  Songs about leaving your partner emotionally. Songs about leaving your partner physically.

Whether looking back at a leaving experience with fondness, disdain, or humor, it can be cathartic to hear an artist echo sentiments you’ve thought too many times yourself. Leaving can be good, leaving can be bad, but leaving in some form or another is universal.
