Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Saw You Drown - Katatonia
302 Homesick - The Cure
303 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

Not too depressing like other songs.

304 Elizabeth On the Bathroom Floor - Eels

The entire album, electroshock blues, is incredibly depressing, but within the first song E clearly summarizes and demonstrates the tone of the rest of the album, and does so in only three short stanzas. The lyrics where also incorporated from Elizabeth Everett's final journal entry before committing suicide. It's a true story about the songwriter's sister. The haunting melody produces a disturbing and very depressing tone.

305 Book of James - We Are Augustines
306 Sober - Tool

There is complete self hate and depression in this song. I don't know why it is so far down in this list.

Amazing lyrics that speaks to anyone that has buried their issues with booze...

307 Tourniquet - Evanescence

This song is just another song about suicide yet it is still amazing (though very depressing).

308 Light Up - Snow Patrol
309 So Close - Evanescence

Clearly the saddest and most emotional song of evanescence

310 Dust In the Wind - Kansas

Everything is dust in the wind

311 Apart - The Cure
312 Sacrifice - London After Midnight
313 You're Never Over - Eminem
314 Mr. Rager - Kid Cudi
315 Angels Fall Down - Skillet
316 Breathe No More - Evanescence

This song is quiet and depressing because it's basically a girl saying she can't be her reflection, and every time she does, she only gets hurt. If that isn't sad I don't know what is, though I wouldn't take my own words for it, if I were someone else reading this on a website.

317 Please Don't Go - Barcelona

Just the mood of this song, his voice.. You can sense the pain. I cry every time I hear it.

318 Live to Tell - Madonna V 1 Comment
319 Mer Girl - Madonna
320 Where Do Broken Hearts Go - Whitney Houston
