    Blink 182 - I miss you
    coldplay - warning sign
    Dire straits - so far away
    DMX - slippin (quite different even if your not into hip hop)
    Eric clapton - tears in heaven
    Oasis - don't go away
    Haddaway - I miss you
    The smiths - that joke isn't funny anymore

    Not all clinically depressing songs but all have there own reasons as to why there in my list.

    Coldplay - Fix u

    I actually like the song but it makes me feel a bit sad cos it reminds me of feeling sad, if that makes sense.

    I'd also like to add 'daydream believer' just because :yuck: :mad:

    Anything by Coldplay.
    Yesterday is history
    Tomorrow is a mystery
    But today is a gift
    That’s why it’s call the present

    For all the fans of melancholic and depressing songs, listen to Mew - absolutely incredible. Just absolutely incredible.

    Mew - shespider is my favourite at the moment, but there are others, such as "coffe break", "snowflake", "then i run". Basically, all songs by mew are depressing and very melancholic.

    Here's a link if you want to listen to shespider... youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Nt04vcLZe8

    ETA: man, it sounds a lot worse there. He sounds like a wuss. :p

    I like 'chasing cars' by snow patrol at the moment, it could be depressing i suppose but I think its lovely.

    Coldplay are the ultimate in depressing music, and not even in a good way.

    I can appreciate catharsis and have had many an emotional experience listening to music because I am weird :p The ones that spring to mind are:

    Alive by Pearl Jam

    The Band Played Waltzing Matilda - Eric Bogle/The Pogues/Joan Baez though The Pogues version always gets me the most and I do believe it is the most depressing song in the history of the world.

    Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings (at least I think that's what it is, the Platoon music, anyway)

    Cold, Cold Ground and Georgia Lee - Tom Waits

    Johnny Cash's version of Hurt, and also The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face are both killers.

    Baby Mine - Betty Noyes (it's easier to understand if I mention the name Dumbo :crying: )

    Evaporated, Brick and Still Fighting it by Ben Folds [Five]

    She Talks to Angels - The Black Crowes (the voice does it)

    And of course, The Chalet Lines by Belle & Sebastian which shouldn't even really be allowed to exist under health laws.

    And of course Harry Nilsson's You're Breaking My Heart... only kidding, it's the best break up song ever (not that this thread is about break ups or anything...)

    Lou Reed-Perfect Day

    Declan by Jeff Beck.

    Most of the time I can listen to it and not be affected. But sometimes it just catches me in 'that' place and takes the air out of my sails.

    elliott smith - twilight
