I configured this playlist by combining the traditional stages of grief, used to explain coping with the death of a loved one, with an interesting more political take I found on said stages online. The stages of grief I meshed together for mourning one’s country go like this:

  1. Loss

  2. Shock and Denial

  3. Protest (Bargaining)

  4. Disorganization (Depression)

The playlist offers a song for either consequence.

Let’s hope the last song you hear in this world isn't by Ke$ha.
