The Clouds of Anhedonia (40)

8 June 2024


Anhedonia: a psychological condition characterised by inability to experience pleasure in normally pleasurable acts.


Most people will no doubt encounter this feeling to some extent, perhaps coupled with depression or anxiety. When I set about these weekly mixes and blog posts back in 2022 it was around about the time I put this mix together that I realised it wasn't going to go in the direction I had really hoped and the process started to feel a bit more of a chore and a little bit less exciting to face each week. In the grand scheme of things, that doesn't really matter, but I've recently been reading the book 'Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before? by Dr Julie Smith' and there's a section on anhedonia in that, so I knew instantly I was going to make use of that when it came to this mix. I think it ties in beautifully. So, number 40 in the 'Year of Music' is now 'The Clouds of Anhedonia'.
