Depressing Songs

I would like to collect some very depressing songs. I'm not looking for any break up songs. I'd be grateful if you list any tracks that you consider depressing. The more depressing it is the better.

Here's a few I love:

Kings of Leon - Milk
Aphex Twins - Avril 14th
Aphex Twins - Stone in Focus
Mozart - Moonlight Sonata no 14
Cypress Hill - Stoned Raiders
Radio Head - Street Spirit
Orbital - Halcyon On & On
Thomas Newman - Any Other Name
Moby - In This World

It's very sad. This song is about the death of Amy Lee's sister at age 3, when Amy was 6. So is another song from Fallen, "Hello".

The cover of Devo's "Beautiful World" by Rage Against the Machine. It's very cold, very cynical, and very lonely.

Re: Depressing Songs

The entire "fragile" album from nine inch nails is quite depressing. (I mean the lyrics, i like the music :] )

AFI - Don't Change. I beleive it only was released on a sampler disk, though.

I should be ashamed of myself.

Re: Depressing Songs

Anything by Velvet Acid Christ.
Some stuff - esp. the album 'Prometheus - The Discipline of Fire & Demise' - by Emperor. Ewigheim - Heimwege (CD 1). Bethlehem - Schatten aus der Alexander Welt. Lik.

Ulver - Speak, dead Speaker! (der Alte [Remix by Martin Horntveth]).

Anything by Dreadful Shadows.

Just my zero-two cents.

Re: Depressing Songs

I've been listening to Never is a Promise a lot lately and bawling like ... something that bawls a lot. the song says so much for me personally.

Look at me! I'm a prostitute robot from the future!

Re: Depressing Songs

Y'know when i first came to netalive over two years ago, the first post i made was referring to evanescence, my immortal, i think.

It is the ultimate depressing song for me. Though if you really want to hit the spot, you might need to be more specific. Give me a better idea of what sort of theme your on to and i might be able to help more.

Mad World - Gary Jules.

Gotta be one of the sadest songs i know, especially when listening to the lyrics.

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World

well yeah, sometimes speaks right from my soul (apart from me not being suicidal ;) )

Chris Smither's "No Love Today" pretty much takes the cake for me right now. The Arcade Fire's "My Body is a Cage" is another really good one, and a couple other songs from that same album ("Bad Vibrations/Black Wave" and "Intervention" come to mind) will definitely make it on my top twenty most depressing songs list. If you're looking for post-apocalyptic black hole of despair type depressing, the first half or so of Godspeed! You Black Emperor's "Dead Flag Blues" is certainly there. It features the actor who played The Seargent in The Big Red One doing this very weird monologue that reminds me of Chief Broom from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest. Only creepier but slightly more sane. Also, there's a fistful of Jeff Buckley and Radiohead songs that come to mind, but that's really more of a buffet than a specific dish, so you could just go wild with their respective discologies.

I'll believe in anything if you'll just believe in anything
