Most Depressing Thread Ever

Postby Rocky » Sat Oct 03, 2009 10:26 pm

Yes it's that time of the night where I've sat down and just want to depress myself to sleep knowing that I will be much happier in the morning but I am looking for the most depressing songs ever off people. Obvious ones are more than welcome cos I'd like to hear what people consider depressing. I'll start

Accidental Babies - Damien Rice
Colourblind - Counting Crows
On The Evening Train - Johnny Cash (Cover I think)
In Every Sunflower - Bellx1
October - Divine Comedy (U2 cover)

Placebo - My Sweet Prince
Tom McRae - You Cut Her Hair
The Smashing Pumpkins - Crestfallen
Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have

I should probably have used the opportunity to slip a little Jobe in there. I'm told my album isn't as upbeat and cheerful as I thought it was. :o

Jobe - Fourteen

Well it was all very simple really. X Factor was on in the background (cos I'm a man and I don't watch it. I was playing waka waka on Facebook instead) but Colourblind by Counting Crows came on and it reminded me of Behind Blue Eyes by Limp Bizkit which are 2 really depressing songs and it just kind of spiralled from there

What exactly do you mean by 'depressing songs'? Do you mean listening to them makes you feel sad? I can't think of any music that does that, except maybe really bad music, saccharin pop or elevator music... I'm confused.

took me a while to think of the good ones. i'm obviously in a good frame of mind if i haven't listened to those recently...

One Day International - Aliens
Bell X1 - Deep
Radiohead - All I need
Damien Dempsey - Hold Me
Charlie Winston - My Name
And some jazz...
Dexter Gordon - I'm a fool to want you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN6li_-aGnA)

It's like his saxophone is crying out the suffering of the entire humanity. And yet, there's hope. A piece of genius. Note the amazing solo at 3mn 22.

I know its slightly off centre, and not exactly dinner party material, but I did a fart in bed on Sunday morning that sounded depressed ... it was pretty funny

Anything song by 'Turn' ... Jeez, If ever a guy wasn't cut out for relationships, its Ollie Cole.
