Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 17XW

321I (Who Have Nothing) - Shirley Bassey
322All Is Full of Love - Bjork
323Cocoon - Bjork
324Taxi Ride - Tori Amos
325Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
326Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash

A show of true regret, and acceptance of worthlessness. Johnny Cash takes you into the world of a man who watches life pass him by as he wastes away in a northern California prison. He dreams of freedom, but knows prison is where he is meant to stay.

327Savin' Me - Nickelback

I know, Nickelback. But it truly is depressing in a way, if you put thought into the song (Watch the video as well).

328Walk Away - Christina Aguilera
329Only One Who Waits - Insomnium
330All Cats Are Grey - The Cure

Aww, I'm so in love with this song. Ohh, the music and the lyrics.

I cannot resist neither one.

331Revenge - Danger Mouse and Sparkle Horse
332Song for Adam - Jackson Browne
333For a Dancer - Jackson Browne
334Desperados Under the Eaves - Warren Zevon
335Far from Home - Five Finger Death Punch
336Lucky You - Deftones
337Iridescent - Linkin Park
338Shame - Smashing Pumpkins

Yes totally agree with the other comment. This 6 and a half minute song is indeed beautiful but painful to listen to due to the intensity of depression it has. In fact, the whole album is full of very depressing but beautiful ballads.

This is the most depressing song I've ever heard in my life. The whole thing is painful, suicidal, loathing and beautiful. Which is depression.

339Pause It and Turn It Up - Biffy Clyro
340Chandelier - Sia
