Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Give Me Love - Ed Sheeran

Give Me Love is one of those somgs that you can listen to without saying a word. Its so beautiful and its beauty kind of masks the sadness behind it.

This is the one song that I listen to on repet when I'm depressed. I don't know why but it tends to calm me down because it makes me feel someone else understands how I feel.

The only depressing thing about end sheeran if how bad he is. - gemcloben

102 Let Her Go - Passenger

Playing this song every day... Love it...

So sad about heart break

I don't think so.

One of the best songs I've ever heard
At the right times it can make you cry

103 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

Amazing. Makes you sit there and just think. About, everything.

104 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

This one deserves the spot better than "Creep", agh I guess its because is most well know than this one.

105 No Surprises - Radiohead

The meaning of giving up. Is this song. Just listen to it when you're completely beaten by life and perhaps 8/10 will appear on the newspaper the next day...its that depressing, I love/hate this song actually because of that. I identify with it which is good but the lyrics and melody just trap me every time. And I just stare at the nothingness of my life. Jeez this song is really a thing.

A song that whispers of just giving up silently to a quiet, tired end. It's so gently depressing.

Possibly my favorite song of all time, but man is it depressing! - mtndewlord

The song and the music video both make me cry.

106 Drugs Don't Work - The Verve

The singer is singing about his wife being destroyed slowly by anti depressants and you can hear his distain and the country twang that hits home. -

This should be higher up, the lyrics can speak to anyone.

107 Untitled - Simple Plan

Honestly if you just need to cry, listen to this. It'll work. I promise.

108 Hate Me - Blue October

This song is filled with nothing but pure, utter self-hatred. It is the one of the only songs in the world that can literally bring tears to my eyes. The absolute sadness and remorse that poors out of the lyrics from this song are enough to make anyone feel down. This song deserves to be at least in the top 10

The fact that this song is not in the top 5 is beyond me. This is one of if not the saddest song I have ever heard. Beautiful song.

So much despair here...

"You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take.
So I’ll drive so far away that I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind."

Probably the most selfless lyrics I've ever heard. Great song

109 Black - Pearl Jam

Some of Eddie Vedder's best lyrics, so sad and a powerful delivery about a man who lost everything in his life.

110 Daddy - Korn

This truly deserves to be number 1. It's about how Jonathan Davis was molested as a kid and how no one believed him. Truly sad.

This is probably the darkest song ever written.

111 Lazarus - David Bowie
112 The Unforgiven II - Metallica

Isn't the point of the whole song depressing?

113 Perfect - Simple Plan

Makes me cry nearly every time I hear it... :(

Back in my emo "My life is over, no one gets me" days I listened to this song just because I was being dramatic. Now It's more of a I'm a disappointment to myself and my parents fml kinda thing. Ya feel?

114 The Loss - Hollywood Undead

Sad song with a true story. Makes me cry every time.

Favorite band such a sad song if you think about the lyrics

115 Would It Matter - Skillet

Skillet is my favorite band and some of there songs it really hard. Just like "Would It Matter" another song by them "The Last Night" means a lot to me too. They both have helped me through a lot. I owe a lot to Skillet.

The most lovely depressing song ever!

SO depressing for me at least.

it should relate to everyone ever.

116 Sleepwalking - Bring Me the Horizon

I love this song but I don't get how its depressing

I cries every time I heard to this song it goes through my soul and I could hear it everyday (( I usually put it on repeat )) I really could relate to this depressing song. besides Bmth is my favorite band ever

BMTH is my favorite band but personally I find Hospital For Souls more depressing thatn Sleepwalking even though I love this song

117 Dead and Gone - T.I.
118 Everytime - Britney Spears
119 Rhinocerous - Smashing Pumpkins

The whole sound of the song is spacy and depressing and corgan adds a wonderful touch of anger to the depression. -

120 Broken - Lifehouse

A song about being so broken hearted you can barely breathe... Yet little by little it gets better.
