Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Kettering - The Antlers

How is this not here? One of the most haunting and depressing songs to ever exist, the story of a ward nurse falling in love with a dying patient is absolutely gut-wrenchingly heartbreaking, should be top 10 at least.

The whole album is heart breaking I honestly cry through the whole album over and over on repeat. I love it so much but it kills me

142Heart Shaped Box - NirvanaV1 Comment
143Kindest Regards - Witt Lowry

How you feel when you're depressed. well written and has a lot of meaning

144Hello - AdeleV2 Comments
145Don't Laugh at Me - Peter Paul and Mary
146Disarm - Smashing Pumpkins

You can literally feel Corgans pain and anger towards his father and the simple set up and slow addition of the strings section deepen the sound to a sonic nirvana. -

This is a sad and very meaningful song, the first verse diarm you with a smile suggests corgan's desire to take every thing against him, and deflect it with love instead of anger. It tells a story about how one hopes to deal with hard things in life.

Very depressing yet such a beautiful song at the same time. Definitely should be in the top 10.

147Papillon - The Airborne Toxic Event
148Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
149Plastic Man - Seether

This song is just amazing, Shaun Morgan's vocals just add awesome addition to the song. A really meaningful song by Seether, this songs shows you should just be yourself and not some plastic guy who everyone likes, best to be yourself.

150The Ghost Woman and the Hunter - Lacuna Coil
151The Rest of My Life - Less Than Jake
152Youth of a Nation - P.O.D.
153Lonely Day - System of a Down

I think that Soldier Side should be on this list but this song is equally sad and plays before it.

This song is so different to other System of a Down songs. Its hauntingly beautiful - Danielsun182

154Brick - Ben Folds Five
155Drunk - Ed Sheeran

Sad breakup song. It shows how much a break up can actually affect someone.

156Hush Little Baby - Wretch 32 & Ed Sheeran

"I should say goodbye before I say hello"... so real. As much as I for woman during the choice to have an abortion, if the man is any kind of a decent person then he is hurting too.

Abortion is a hard topic to write about. But they did.

157A Tout Le Monde - Megadeth
158Trouble - ColdplayV1 Comment
159Don't Forget - Demi Lovato

This song is special to me and the voice of the singer makes it so much more emotional and I think it deserves to be in the top 10 to me, it makes me want to cry

160Toxic - Robbie Williams
