    I don't know if these have been posted already, I haven't read the whole topic. For metal-Fade to Black by Metallica and Tout le Monde by Megadeth, though Tout le monde is slightly uplifting at the end. Motorhead's "1916" is an awsome one along with "One more F**king time" are the most depressing songs ever. Radiohead songs are awsome to.
    Shred can be emotional!

    Six Degrees of inner Turbulence by Dream Theater can be depressing enough cuz its about goin insane

    Fade to Black is depressing its about suicide

    Tears by Dream Theater is one of those songs that makes you sigh

    So is the Rain Song by Zeppelin

    does anyone here like PORTISHEAD?
    they are one of my biggest influences i think, the singer BETH GIBBONS has an spectacular voice to make you cry, and the topics of thier songs are kinda existencial. Try the song 'ROADS' as a starter, from their first release, DUMMY.
    Then listen to all the damn record!
    If that does not get you completely down, try the second homonimous release... is has darker tone.
    And finally, beth's solo album with rustin man. Gorgeous melodies in that album!

    If you liked this, the try GOLDFRAPP debut album..

    Tom waits is also pretty dramatic, he has a deep voice and interesting themes.

    Elleni Mandell is kind of a mix between tom waits and a woman, lol, she has a style very much like his.

    And of course, my favorite mexican singer girl, Hope Sandoval... She was on a band called MAzzy Star, and their three records are deliciously depresive. Her voice's soft and warm and makes a nice contrast with the music. She also has a solo album!

    The soundtrack of the directorial debut of sofia copola, Virgin Suicides by AIR,
    is also very nice to listen to with the lights turned out, some tunes are not that depresive, but they get you on a light sad mood.

    Leonard Cohen is also a sad man.

    Other sad bands: Dream city film club, PJ Harvey can be quite depressing too,
    Try em!

    And i have to agree with the video of Hurt, it is overwhelming.
    If anyone likes this stuff please lemme know! i can talk about this for hoooours and hours!

    Why did you satrted this thread ?
