when you're feeling blue, does music make you feel better?
Or am I just emo?
I still feel blue.. but the music turns it into something bitter sweet.

For me, at least, it does help to have a phase of sad music whenever something has really got me down. It's not a "cure" for what ails you, but as someone else said, it's sort of a "misery loves company" kind of thing, it's nice to know someone else has felt a similar way, and not just anybody else, but somebody with considerable influence via their music.
After a while, I'll transition to what I consider my "zen" music (STS9's Artifact has been filling that role for me lately), and then I'll be able to enjoy everything again.
Likewise, going on a bender when you're in a rut - the purpose isn't (or at least, shouldn't) really be to fix your problems, but just to let off some steam.
