Songs for feeling down...

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I was just wondering if any of you have suggestions for some songs that are slow and for either losing a loved one or just feeling alone.

(In terms of sound) I'm looking for stuff like:

"Tears In Heaven" by Eric Clapton

"Shine Your Light" by Robbie Robertson

"Nan's Song" by Robbie Williams

"I Shall Believe" by Sheryl Crow

...Stuff like that. I look forward to reading your suggestions.

Also, I apologize that this seems to be such a redundant request. :)

'Something Fast' by The Sisters Of Mercy is a song when I'm feeling lonely...

All the things

We never needed

I don't need them now

All the things

Were always confidential

And hidden from me anyhow

You can stand all night

At a red light anywhere in town

Hailing maries left and right

But none of them slow down

I seen the best of men go past

I don't want to be the last

Gimme something fast

God knows everybody needs

A hand in their decision

Some of us are not so sure

I seen his own held out

For a ride on television

I think he's still in Baltimore

You can stand all night

At a red light anywhere in town

Hailing maries left and right

But none of them slow down

I seen the best of men go past

I don't want to be the last

Gimme something fast

You can look in the Relaxing Music thread for some stuff you might like...or some of the Sad Songs posts.

I actually just wanted to compliment you on your choice of Robbie Robertsons - Shine Your Light...that song is amazing!

This reminds me of "Shine a light", a very sad song on "Exile on Main Street", Rolling Stones.

I always say the same ones: "Drive" (Cars), "Band of Gold" (Freda Payne), "Everything I own" (Bread) and those posted in the depressive mood songs threads...

Thank you PsychoCatholic! I really do love "Shine Your Light"...it's addictive when you listen to it...for me anyway. :)

Also, thank you to the rest of you who are posting your suggestions...please keep them coming! ::

Much Love,

Then a "redundant request" should get a not-so usual recommendation.

Try these:

"1ere Gymnopedie" composed by Erik Satie

"Adagio In G Minor (Giazotto)" composed by Albinoni (one of the few who wrote for the oboe... you cannot go wrong with that)

"I Pagliacci" composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo

"Intermezzo" composed by Pietro Mascagni

It's the eyetalians. They know how to convey it con forza espressiva :beatnik:

So you want a sing that will make you feel worse?

Try "Broken Hearts" by Darren Benitez. When I first heard it on the radio I wondered why they were playing it, since it went beyond the Blues' "Jump in the river and die" viewpoint. In the song, a parent is apparently comforting a surviving child, and addressing a dead one, speaking of the eventual passing of elemental pain. Personally, Life is blue enough; put on some Louis Armstrong and move on...posthaste. No? OK, how about Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A wonderful World" off his 1993 CD, "Facing Future"? (It turns out he didn't have much of a future after all...) :headphones:
