Top Ten Most Depressing Songs
The Contenders: Page 8
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!
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 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...
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.
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.
I always tear up whe I listen to this. Steven Tylers voice sounds so sad and destroyed. One of the greats
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 meV 1 Comment
It's not TOO sad and depressing to me.
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.
