Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone again Naturaly"
Sorry, I'm on my kindle, tough to post a vid of the song.




Perfect! Yes, I grew up with Gilbert's songs. A very talented songwriter.

I have to go shopping for food. There and back it is over six miles and I don't have a car so I have to walk. It is a brisk, grey day with a grey green ocean. I walk there and back along the shore line. I will be thinking of these songs I have heard as I make my journey. Please anyone continue to post. I am thoroughly enjoying this. I will give everyone a star and listen to the tracks you post when I return.

Thanks to everyone so far!

an Italian song about a guy who comes home to find his brother murdered and knowing the cops can't do anything, in his grief, he decides to take vengeance out on those who did it.

Edit: # i can't get the vid to take, the song's called Infama Vinditta

I agree with your choice of Morrissey. Anything by the Minister of Mope is depressing.

One of my favorite songs ever and depressing as Hell. I've already put it in my will to not have a funeral for me and instead have a big ass party. This is what will be playing when people arrive...

I was going to suggest " Alone Again Naturally", but I see that it's already up.

My other selection is " At Seventeen" by Janis Ian

I love depressing music! (John Cale and Lou Reed are two favorites of mine)

As for some depressing music to share...I know of many!

But just off the top of my head...If you want depressing, then Current 93 is always a good choice



Also, here's a good one by Leonard Cohen

You're welcome. Great song!

Just put the characters after the v= into the youtube icon box, or in between [yvid brackets if you want to do it manually.

eg - w.youtube.com/watch?v=eHJ1KACVm8c

I always appreciate when a band writes the music in major keys and the lyrics are this depressing! Even though this is a D minor over C it has such a contrasting feel to all of their other work and it sounds like its in major until you get to the end when it switches to E minor to D minor to F

While the term "depressing" can be subjective, every time someone talks about depressing songs, there is a Toby Keith song that runs through my head--probably because my parents were divorced and my mom had remarried by the time that this song came out. My empathy well ran over for my dad when I listened to this song at 15, wondering how my dad was feeling as he was forced out of his own house and away from his family and children (except every other weekend). Hell, it actually started the open conversation about it with my dad, and I'm glad it did.

It still hits home when I listen to it, probably because I was close to divorce at one point about 7 years ago, and I couldn't imagine how that would have affected me or my son. I'm glad I never found out.

Please excuse the cheezy 90s country music, hair, and video...it's the words that do it for me:


Please don't laugh at me for posting 90s country

Such a good song. I fell in love with this band and Beth's voice after an ex turned me onto their live video from the Roseland ballroom in NYC. it's a must have for anyone who likes Portishead.
