Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Make It Stop - Rise Against V 1 Comment
142 Suicide is Painless - The Mash

For this to not be on the list is blasphemy. Just look at the lyrics: The game of life is hard to play, I'm gonna lose it anyway, The losing card I'll someday lay, so this is all I have to say. One of the first songs about suicide, and yet stunningly realistic today.

Best song ever!

143 45 - Shinedown
144 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

145 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...

146 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.

147 Freezing Moon - Mayhem
148 Exit Music (For a Film) - Radiohead

Amazing

149 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.

150 Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
151 Song Cry - Jay-Z V 1 Comment
152 Dream On - Aerosmith

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

153 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

154 Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana V 1 Comment
155 Hello - Adele V 2 Comments
156 Don't Laugh at Me - Peter Paul and Mary
157 This Used to Be My Playground - Madonna

It's not TOO sad and depressing to me.

158 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.

159 Papillon - The Airborne Toxic Event
160 Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
