Top Ten Most Depressing Songs
The Contenders: Page 6
Amazing. Makes you sit there and just think. About, everything.
This one deserves the spot better than "Creep", agh I guess its because is most well know than this one.
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.
I'm surprised this is so low on this list. This is honestly one of the most depressing songs I have ever heard.
There is just no hope in this song, but yet still perfect!
The dark tunnel without the light at the end
Most depressing song I've ever heard...
We are going to extinct, and it may happen in different ways, all caused by ourselves (i. E pollution, a robot rebellion) - dieghe98
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.
Honestly if you just need to cry, listen to this. It'll work. I promise.V 1 Comment
Some of Eddie Vedder's best lyrics, so sad and a powerful delivery about a man who lost everything in his life.V 2 Comments
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.
Isn't the point of the whole song depressing?
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?V 1 Comment
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
Sad song with a true story. Makes me cry every time.
Favorite band such a sad song if you think about the lyrics
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.
The whole sound of the song is spacy and depressing and corgan adds a wonderful touch of anger to the depression. -
A song about being so broken hearted you can barely breathe... Yet little by little it gets better.V 1 Comment
Suicide is so hard to describe. They portray the thoughts before it why they did it so perfectly.
This song makes me realize I'm not the only person in this world with "problems"
It's about suicide. How could you not cry?
They describe suicide like no one didV 2 Comments
Never listened to full song
This is the first song that I liked. I listen to this song whenever I'm depressed.
This song My Immortal from Evanescence would often remind me of the Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows, where Barnabas Collins is reminded by Victoria Winters as his lost love, Josette.
It doesn't make me cry, though.
