Hitori – Welcome to Melancholia

This mix came into our inbox earlier this week with little explanation other than it is an open letter to a loved one. With Valentine’s Day tomorrow we thought it’d be timely, even if it’s not your usual uplifting lovers mix. Instead it’s a trip into melancholy, soundtracked by a selection and movie samples that evoke all these feelings when someone has been lost. Alongside the mix was a message:

An open letter to the woman I love and who I can’t be with. Despite the pain it causes me, as Lord Tennyson said: I hold it true, whate’er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; ‘Tis better to have loved and lost; Than never to have loved at all. Dedicated to all those who have loved and lost. There is a brighter tomorrow somewhere.

I won’t be adding much, instead I’ll let you enjoy the music and the message – whatever feelings or emotions it may echo inside each and everyone of you.
