Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

This is a one of those truthful songs about the pain of falling in love. It has a beautiful story about love, loss, and how people handle it.
The lyrics are so well written and beautiful. They are also very truthful. "Don't fall in love there's just too much to lose."

Sad about his wife dying and him having to care for the child alone

One of the saddest songs I've ever listened to. Gets me every time.

I cry every single time

142 9 Crimes - Damien Rice

I heard this in Shrek The Third. Ah, well. I don't remember now. I was little back then.

Such a powerful song... Its lyrics make my heart cringe in sadness... at least deserves top 20...

143 Save Me from Myself - Brian "Head" Welch

This song is just about the most depressing song I have ever heard. It talks about how as long as there is something you believe in, you have a meaning to live. Truly beautiful and inspiring to those who believe in God AND to individuals who just want a meaning in their lives.

Such a sad song by one of the guitarists of Korn.

144 Locked Away - R. City

Story of my life, pretty much:
"If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly
Would you still love me the same? "
"A gal I know that I can trust..."
"Cause I need a gal who's always by my side..."
And even though the music is upbeat and happy, the lyrics got me.

145 Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
146 Song Cry - Jay-Z V 1 Comment
147 Dream On - Aerosmith

I always tear up whe I listen to this. Steven Tylers voice sounds so sad and destroyed. One of the greats

148 Kettering - 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

150 Kindest Regards - Witt Lowry

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

151 Hello - Adele V 2 Comments
152 Don't Laugh at Me - Peter Paul and Mary
153 This Used to Be My Playground - Madonna

It's not TOO sad and depressing to me.

154 Disarm - 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.

155 Papillon - The Airborne Toxic Event
156 Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
157 Plastic 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.

158 Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode
159 The Ghost Woman and the Hunter - Lacuna Coil
160 The Rest of My Life - Less Than Jake
