Most Depressing Song Ever?

This was one of my best threads ever on the music forum... so feel free to share depressing tunes here.

Just about anything by these artists gets me down:

Nine Inch Nails

Townes Van Zandt

Thom Parrott

Radiohead


Anyone who can think of any more, feel free to share.

Everybody Hurts by REM and Johnny Cash's version of Hurt
For some reason Johnny's version is much more depressing than NIN's version...

Some Joy Division songs who then became new order. After Curtis hung himself
Sounded depressing but really Ian Curtis was a genius.

Cracker -- This is the Golden Age
----------------------------------
This is the Golden Age
It's hard to imagine
with the way I feel today
that this is the Golden Age
The Golden Age

Somewhere I failed
Somewhere I lost you
in a black crowd of crows
and shiny things
I can't remember
This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age
The Golden Age
It seems like I'm high
but baby I'm crawling
in the unbearable days
I threw away
but I should have savored
The flaxen light
off of the dying wheat
Your rye whiskey mouth
and your dandelion teeth
This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age

----------------------------

For various reasons it always gets me low like no other... but in a good way.

I always found the smith's to be quite dpressing.

I'd like to nominate the whole Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence album (actually, it's 2 CDs) from <a href="http://www.dreamtheater.com/">Dream Theater</a>. Great stuff. Nice and depressing, but not overly so, if that makes sense.

Harry Chapin - Cats in the Cradle
Makes me think of how fast life has gone & all the times I didn't spend time with my Dad before he died.

Ben Folds - Still Fighting It
Same as above. But the added twinge that makes me feel like I'm a disappointment to my parents, or that they maybe felt like they were a disappointment to me. I sing loudly with it in my car, hoping Dad can hear me.

Everybody knows, it sucks to grow up.
... and you're so much... like me... I'm sorry...

"Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space" by Spiritualized

I don't know about depressing, but it makes me tear up if I'm in a down mood, often I feel better when it's over.

Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space

All I want in life's a little bit of love
To take the pain away
Getting strong today
A giant step each day
All I want in life's a little bit of love
To take the pain away
Getting strong today
A giamt step each day
I've been told
Only fools rush in
Only fools rush in
But I don't believe
I don't believe
I could still fall in love with you

I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
So please put your sweet hand in mine
And float in space and drift in time
All the time until I die
We'll float in space, just you and I
And I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
So please put your sweet hand in mine
And float in space and drift in time
All the time until I die
We'll float in space, just you and I

Baby I love you today
I guess that's what you want
And I don't know where we are all going
Life don't get stranger than this
It is what it is
And I don't know where we are all going

I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time
Everything happens today
And we're out here in space
And I don't know where we are all going
Baby I love you today
I guess that's what you want
And I don't know where we are all going

And yes, growing up sucks.

Did anyone ever see that HBO special about using ectasy? The dude in that would always start crying when they played that song. It was pretty damn funny.

And Pearljams Black at close second.

Though Stainds rendition was a bit more depressing.

I'll agree that Vincent by Don McLean was pretty sad to.

Don't know if these are the most depressing songs ever, but they sure as hell bummed me out (and continue to as well)

Great music listed on this thread

Cash's version of Hurt is more depressing for me because he doesn't hit a single note the entire song and I want to kill myself when I hear it.
