Awesome thread, seeing a lot of great contributions and new music I've never heard before!


When I'm thinking about depressing music, I immediately have to think of Alice In Chains/Layne Staley. I already saw two songs when reading the posts, but IMO their most depressing song is missing..

Alice in Chains - Down In Hole

Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time, especially the Unplugged version of the song. The candles and Layne's weakening physical and mental state creates this "funeral setting". So raw and pure, you can so clearly see and hear Layne's struggles. Is it about his addiction to heroin or about the love of his life? Or are these two the same thing? Either way, this song touches me deeply.



Lyrics:

Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In her tomb...in bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I've decorated like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be

Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, losin control
I'd like to fly...
But my wings have been so denied

Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will bring no more
of my feelings beneath

Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, losin control
I'd like to fly....
But my wings have been so denied

Bury me softly in this womb (Oh I want to be inside of you)
I give this part of me for you (Oh I want to be inside of you)
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers (Oh I want to be inside of you)
In her tomb...in bloom (Oh I want to be inside...)

Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, feelin so small
Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, out of control
I'd like to fly...
But my Wings have been so denied...

Of course the blues gives me the blues and lately Schoenberg. I only listen to these guys when I'm happy, which is rare, otherwise I'll probably be hanging myself.

This song is confusing, it has very cheerful lyrics, but it leaves me feeling depressed.

This song is brutal regardless of if you are going through it or not...

The lyrics, the video, the performance...


Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, never forget
These images

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
