Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 10XW

181Right Here Waiting - Richard Marx

Such an upsetting and depressing song, I'm astonished it wasn't on here before I had to put this on :'(

182So Cold - Detlef Zoo
183Gustavo - Sun Kil Moon and the Album Leaf

This is a really amazing song about a Mexican named Gustavo and I find some parts of it amusing actually, but other parts are just SO sad oh this song is in an album like no other because it combines a synthesyser with the sad feel of the artist voice

184The Light Behind Your Eyes - My Chemical Romance

I feel as though this was there break up song, the violins and somberness sort of drives me nuts but in a really good, beautiful way

This is the best depressing song ever

185Falling Away With You - Muse
186Summer Breeze - Seals and Croft

Is song is too quiet and has this depressing electric guitar riff throughout that sounds like something from a genetic N64 racing or bass fishing game.

187Thoughtless - Korn
188Bronte - Gotye
189Asleep - The SmithsV1 Comment
190Sounds of Silence - Simon & GarfunkelV2 Comments
191Nobody Home - Pink Floyd

The song, from the magnificent album The Wall, a depressing album in all, is all around sad to listen to. This song represents a man who is depressed and wants to do something with his life, but just feels he can't, creating a sad tone. I'm listening to it right now and I want to cry

192Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
1939 Crimes - Damien Rice

I heard this in Shrek The Third. Ah, well. I don't remember now. I was little back then.

Such a powerful song... Its lyrics make my heart cringe in sadness... at least deserves top 20...

194Back to Black - Amy Winehouse
195Decades - Joy Division
196The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

From "Game of Thrones", the "Red Wedding" episode.
Everyone is very dead at the end of the episode, pretty depressing.

197Rotten Apple - Alice In ChainsV1 Comment
198Kim - Eminem

I absolutely love this... coming from a girl that listens to Taylor Swift and Panic! at the Disco (I have weird taste in music)

199Last to Know - Three Days Grace

This song is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard! I cried more than once listening to it.

Such an underrated song and band! I cried for nearly an hour listening to this

200One-X - Three Days Grace
