What is the most depressed/depressing song?

Recommended Posts

The Hurting - Tears for Fears

Is it an horrific dream

Am I sinking fast

Could a person be so mean

As to laugh and laugh

On my own

Could you ease my load

Could you see my Pain

Could you please explain

The Hurting

Could you understand a child

When he cries in Pain

Could you give him all he needs

Or do you feel the same

All along

You've been told you're wrong

When you felt it right

And you're left to fight

The Hurting

Get in line with the things you know

Feel the Pain

Feel the sorrow

Touch the hurt and don't let go

Get in line with the things you know

Learn to cry

Like a baby

Then the hurting won't come back

Layla -- Derek & The Dominos

"There are few moments in the repertoire of recorded rock where a singer or writer has reached so deeply into himself that the effect of hearing them is akin to witnessing a murder, or a suicide... to me, 'Layla' is the greatest of them." - Dave Marsh

feelin scared today

write down "I am okay"

a hundred times the doctor say

I am okay

I am okay

I'm not okay...

skin is crawling off

mopping the sweaty drops

sticking around for this sh*t

another day

another day

not another day...

pink pill feels good

finally understood

take me in your warm embrace

I am trying

I am trying

Every song from the "Berlin" album by Lou Reed.

"The Bed"

This is the place where she lay her head

When she went to bed at night

And this is the place our children were conceived

Candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists

That odd and fateful night

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

This is the place where we used to live

I paid for it with love and blood

And these are the boxes that she kept on the shelf

Filled with her poetry and stuff

And this is the room where she took the razor

And cut her wrists that strange and fateful night

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

I never would have started if Id known

That its end this way

But funny thing, Im not at all sad

That it stopped this way

This is the place where she lay her head

When she went to bed at night

And this is the place our children were conceived

Candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists

That odd and fateful night

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

"Caroline Says" I and II

Depressing songs usually are from the first person's viewpoint or comment on another's downward spiral. However, consider a song from the departed to the survivor and see if it affects you.

"In The End" by Nathan Aweau

No matter where I've been

And all the many faces

There's one thing that I'm missin'...

Is to be next to you...to be close to you

(Chorus)

And in the end, please don't cry for me

And in the end, a smile will set me free

And in the end, love is all I need...

It's the only thing that matters in my life

When all is said and done

And all the cheers are gone

I've had a good time

In my life...in my life

I personally find Say Goodnight by Bullet for My Valentine quite depressing and somber.

Heaven's waiting for you

Just close your eyes and say goodbye

Hearing your pulse go on and on and on

I live my life in misery

I'd sacrifice this world to hold you

No breath left inside of me

Shattered glass keeps falling

Say...

Say goodnight

Just sleep tight

say goodnight...

Flowers laid out for you

So many colors leave me blind

Seeing your face reflect from our baby's eyes

I live my life in misery

I'd sacrifice this world to hold you

No breath left inside of me

Shattered glass keeps falling

Say...

Say goodnight

Just sleep tight

say goodnight...

So here I am

You're inside of me

So here I am

Our world is over

So here I am

You're inside of me

So here I am

Our world is over

Here I am with you

I'm there till the end

Memories are calling

So farewell my friend

Farewell my friend!

Here I am with you

I'm there till the end

Memories are calling

So farewell my friend

Farewell my friend!

In the end - Linkin Park

I've put my trust in you

Pushed as far as I can go

And for all this

There's only one thing you should know

I tried so hard

And got so far

But in the end

It doesn't even matter

I had to fall

To lose it all

But in the end

It doesn't even matter

Laurie_ 11-21-05 08:35 PM - Post#172464 thought that "Can't You See" is depresing. Lyrically, it's a blues type construction. The singer is sad, but he's moving on. "Gonna catch a frieght train...Till that train runs out of track" Get away from it all. Start a new life. He's not suicidal, or any such. He's coping.

BTW, a few years after the Marshall Tucker Band had their hit, Waylon Jennings took his recording to success on the country charts. A good song has legs, and this one does.

Brick by Ben Folds Five

6 am day after christmas

I throw some clothes on in

The dark

The smell of cold

Car seat is freezing

The world is sleeping and

I am numb

Up the stairs to her apartment

She is balled up on the couch

Her mom and dad went down

To charlotte

Theyre not home to find us

Out

And we drive

Now that I have founds someone

Im feeling more alone

Than I ever have before

Chorus

Shes a brick and Im drowning

Slowly

Off the coast and Im headed

Nowhere

Shes a brick and Im drowning

Slowly

They call her name at 7:30

I pace around the parking lot

Then I walk down to buy her

Flowers

And sell some gifts that I got

Cant you see

Its not me youre dying for

Now shes feeling more alone

Than she ever has before

Chorus

As weeks went by

It showed that she was not fine

They told me son its time

To tell the truth

And she broke down and I broke

Down

cause I was tired of lying

Driving back to her apartment

For the moment were alone

Shes alone

And Im alone

Now I know it

Page & Plant - Big Log

My love is in league with the freeway

Its passion will ride, as the cities fly by

And the tail-lights dissolve, in the coming of night

And the questions in thousands take flight

My love is a-miles in the waiting

The eyes that just stare, and the glance at the clock

And the secret that burns, and the pain that grows dark

And it's you once again

Leading me on - leading me down the road

Driving beyond - driving me down the road

My love is exceedingly vivid

Red-eyed and fevered with the hum of the miles

Distance and longing, my thoughts do provide

Should I rest for a while at the side

Your love is cradled in knowing

Eyes in the mirror, still expecting they'll come

Sensing too well when the journey is done

There is no turning back - no

There is no turning back - on the run

My love is in league with the freeway

Oh the freeway, and the coming of night-time

My love is in league with the freeway

Just Plant on that one.. the second album principle of Moments.. Robbie Blunt on guitar.. great track..
