The Contenders: Page 2

21 Rise Above This - Seether

This song is dedicated to Shaun Morgan's brother who committed suicide in 2007.

22 One More Light - Linkin Park
23 Sweet Scarlet - Cat Stevens
24 Running to the Sea - Röyksopp

A very dark and poignant song about the suicidal tendencies which we all have deep down beneath our skins, only for tragedy or lack of wellbeing to make more prominent, and for those affected to be isolated and surrounded by fear. It does make you think, even if you are content at the present, something could happen to you to spark this tendency, and in the blink of an eye, it goes beyond your control. - PositronWildhawk

33 Jumper - Third Eye Blind
34 I Want to Die - Mortal Love
35 So Many Tears - 2pac
36 Self Destruction, Pt. 2 - Nine Inch Nails
37 Michael X - Casper

This is one of the few songs that is not as much about the person who commited suicide, as it is about how his friends deal with it.
We actually know little about this guy, or why he killed himself. What we know is that he was in a self-proclaimed "gang", that are actually more like bohemians, that tried to become rebellious rock and rap artists but failed to gather any fame or success. They wanted to be legends (Casper compares them to Kurt Cobain, Bon Scott, 2Pac and Jim Morrisson in the first verse - bit of a foreshadowing as we know nothing about the suicide until the chorus), but after he killed himself, the clique parted ways with each heading into different directions. No one really made the big career they were aiming for. According to Casper, this song is somehow rooted in reality.
Ironically, it was the album where "Michael X" is on that brought Casper to huge national fame, basically he reached everything that he said didn't work out in the song. - Martin_Canine

38 Grenade - Bruno Mars
39 Lass Los - Tic Tac Toe

This song by female rap trio Tic Tac Toe is about a friend's suicide and how the three women cope with it, one of them feeling guilty and drinking, one suffering from depression and the third hating the many curious pseudo-friends that only want to know want to know what happened and are interested in sendation. Jazzy and Ricky deliver their verses with good lyrics and insane rhyming schemes (a pity they have been seen as pop rappers because they could write some really awesome lyrics) in a melodramatic manner that fits the sentimental piano and strings in the beat. But that's not why this song is gripping to me. No, the real reason is Lee's verse, which is the second one. Not only does she have the most intense delivery and lyrics, Lee actually breaks out in tears halfway through the song, and the song even stops for a few seconds. This is absolutely authentic and real. Lee's husband commited suicide and I am sure that while recording the song all the memories came back. - Martin_Canine

40 Don't Try Suicide - Queen
