Mad World – Gary Jules Report Abuse
Made much more haunting than the original with the vocals of Gary Jules and the piano, this piece is hard to ignore. Not sure if the fact that it was the ending song to Donnie Darko or the lyrics itself that makes this song so depressing, all that matters is that it just really is.

Yes. Also, it makes you realize problems with society/the world, even though it doesn't flat-out say; it's up to the listener to decide what problems Gary Jules really wanted to bring out/

It is sad, but Gary is not the original singer. Yes the original version is more pop like and not set in such a depressing tone. But you should still give credit to Tears For Fears who originally wrote the song.

Out of any song this is my complete favorite. I listen to it everyday. Adam Lambert I think couldn't compete with Gary Jules. Gary Jules way of singing it is much more powerful than Adam Lambert's cover. It was certainly good but not as good as Gary Jules version. This song is very haunting and has very powerful words. This song helped me get through a lot. I love this song. :)

Very depressing, indeed. I prefer the original version by NIN. It feels even more real and dark.. .but I love both of them. I remember listening to this song before visiting my shrink once. When she asked me how I felt i just couldn't keep my tear backs, perhaps because of this song. It was the first time in 6 years some one saw me cry.

In terms of effect I find NINs far more depressing in fact I can hardly listen to it. Probably because I was splitting up from my wife at the time. Cash's has a different feel more about memories. Both good.

My dad loved this song... He shot himself in April. He didn't do it intentionally, but he taught me the meaning of this song. My dad taught me, my brother and my sister a lot, and the final lesson was how to cope with death, and more than that, how to cope with suicide. I handled it wrong at first; now I listen to this song when I think about him. Gives me the weirdest feeling of peace.

Reznor actually prefers Cash's version. I like them both. For me Reznor's version is more strained and painful whereas Cash's version is more somber and depressed.

you can not bash this song. trent reznor can't even do that johnny cash is a legend because he is amazing. and while i give trent props for writing and making the song. johnny cash perfected it and made it. this is not a list of good songs but depressing songs and johnny cash's version takes the cake you can hear it in his voice and even the flow of the music. this song just makes you sad. should be at the top in my opinion.

The two songs have different meanings. Trent Reznor's was about being addicted to heroin and Johnny Cash's was about getting old and going through his life. Personally, I relate to the NIN version.

Johnny Cash's version is way better then NIN's. Even Trent Reznor said "I pop the video in, and wow… Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps… Wow. [I felt like] I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore" the song resonates and has so much more meaning being sung by Cash.

I listen to this song once, and it hurts, but i can relate. So i listen to it again. And again, and again, until i'm telling myself i can't listen to it again, because it's going to kill me, but i listen to it any way. I end the night in a balling sobbing ball in bed wishing none of this were the way it was. I can hardly stand this song anymore, too much pain, but i can't stop.

When my boyfriend died the song was exactly my story. He was a bipolar and I loved him not only as a boyfriend but also as a caretaker. When he died my entire life was empty. When I hear this song now, it takes me back to that time and reminds me of feeling tired from hours of crying and being just as sad after crying as before (but now no longer able to cry).

I actually think that either her son Hello or Like You should be here instead oooof My Immortal. They both deal with the death of her little sister Bonnie when Amy was just 6 years old and Bonnie was only 3. They are such sad but beautiful songs. My father actually died a couple years ago and I can remember singing that the day after we buried him.

This song is about their original founding band member Syd Barrett, who went a little crazy dueto drugs and had left the band by this point. The eerie part is that while Pink Floyd was recording this album, Syd came into the studio just to visit. Most notably, he was there with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" being recorded and playing in the background, a song that was directly about him. Syd didn't catch on, and they didn't tell him.

This song brings me back to nostolgia. I love it. The light guitar picking and riffs speaks to me clearly. If you want to listen to a classic, this is your chance. I think it's more of a feel good song, but on a lonely summer's night when the cicadas hollar.

I Won't See You Tonight Pt. 1 - Avenged Sevenfold Report Abuse
Definitely a depressing song. From the sorrowful intro piano to the depressing swansong of a chorus, this song portrays hopelessness and depression in such a way that it completely reflects the subject matter of a suicide note

Ok the fact that most people here are referring to pink floyd as a "he" shows you have no clue what your talking about. If you were referring to him being the guy in the movie the wall you are wrong in assuming hes in the band. The guy in the movie is bob geldof the creator of live aid and live 8. the song portrays geldofs character a famous musician overdosing on heroin before a show and his managers response is to pump him with counter acting drugs so he can still go onstage simply for another payday.

No, what started it was he was really sick before a show in Pittsburgh once and the hotel Doctor came up and said ,"oh we'll give you a shot of this and you'll be ok.....it made him nearly incoherent and he had to do the show anyway.....that was the inspiration for the song

I dedicated this song to my mother for the years of my struggle with addiction and my numerous suicide attempts. Having to deal with my mania and my lows. She admits she truly had no clue how to cope, what to do, or how to "fix it". (Those who have emotional problems will relate to that reference) But she stood by me no matter what I did or said, and in the end I slowly was able to grip with the reality of myself to manage stability and content. She saw me through despite me always pushing her away. Thank you mom!

I relate to this song not because some fleeting love left me, or something, but because it remind's me of my relationship to my father, who passed away in cancer not long ago. He was a horrible father, no doubt, but I was a horrible daughter. And he spent his last months on Earth, trying to make it up to me, knowing he did not have much time left. And I just shut him out, my wounded pride and my hatred for things that happen 20 years ago in the way. And on his death bed, I showed up, because I could no longer keep ignoring him. And as he looked at me for the last time, he smiled and told me that he did not except me to forgive him, but he had forgiven me along time ago. So, he told me that he loved me. So when he he sing "Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you" I die a little.

this song is not about self harm. "you bleed just to know you're alive" is in reference to the film "city of angels" which this song was written for. in the film, the angel must fall from a building to become a human being, and to show this has happened he bleeds. he then knows he is alive, a human.

I was a medic in Afghanistan and I will tell you that this song does not have the "political war glorifying double speak" to myself and my brothers and sisters that some of you may believe. Everytime I hear this song, I drink a shot of whiskey for those no longer with us. They are the Heroes of War. As it is said of veterans, All Gave Some, Some Gave All. I never discuss what I did there because most of the population doesn't understand the helpless feeling of holding your dear friend's hand as he takes his last breath and you, as the medic, are powerless to save him because you've already exhausted your resources and knowledge...

Let me throw my voice in with the rational people who have commented: No, this song is not that sad. It is sad, but not to the point to ever take note of. And yes, I do understand it. The guy is realizing that everything he believed to be true doesn't seem so true to him anymore after the fact. I will say that before anyone signs up for the military, they should be forced to read these lyrics. Hopefully it would change their mind.

I think a lot of you missed the message, he's not trying to say how great american soldiers are and that they're are hero's, they kill innocent people women and children and are seen as these great heroes fighting for their country but they're not. War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder.

My big bro came home from Afghanistan and I asked him how he was holding up, he smiled at me and said, "listen lil' sis, I don't regret it but I will never be myself again. I will never laugh like I did with him, I am always going to feel the weight of these metals on my heart and it will hurt to know what they mean."

It is sad because it is talking about a veteran of some war who comes home decorated, but nobody knows or understands what he went through to get those medals, so essentially everyone is proud of him going through hell that they don't see his pain or emotional scars. And now the veteran has to deal with the pain all by himself.

It's nothing to do with Jim's father either. He had a very distant relationship with his parents, hence the Oedipus lyrics (father, I want to kill you). Truth is, he began writing it about the end of a relationship, but whilst performing it live he added lines of poems and other songs he had written, creating the masterpiece we now know. So, using your not so eloquent language, "know what your (sic) talking about before posting your BS." On another note, probably my favourite song ever, and it both depresses you and makes you incredibly angry at the same time.

Nothing to do with the end of a relationship, moron. Jim Morrisons Father was in the Vietnam War, its about the Red River, "the snake" in Vietnam.

Adams Song by Blink 182 Report Abuse
It's about a kid who killed himself and blink 182 played his song he wrote.

The song is about Adam...'I trace the cord back to the wall, No wonder... it was never plugged in at all'. He tried to commit suicide by putting his amp in a puddle with himself (not sure how big/deep this puddle was), but it is definitely about him trying to commit.

Then you should of gotten an F then. The "Adam" is a reference to a Mr. Show sketch. Mark was a huge fan of them and named after a song he wrote about being depressed on the road. Simple as that.

That isnt true, he didnt write it because a killed himself that liked them, they wrote the song and a kid that was part of the Columbine High School massacre, committed suicide with this song playing on repeat

The song caused a bit of a stir back in 2000, because it was set to replay indefinently as a survivor of the Columbine High School massacre by the name of Greg Barnes hung himself in his parent's garage.

Dear "Guest" (I wish people would stand up and be counted :-)) - agree with you over the "vintage". Possibly not THE most depressing song ever. But beautiful. And sad. And perhaps a reflection of how I was at 17. Deserves to be higher. Think I'll go and listen to this song NOW!

I was surprised to see this song on this list! The song, after all, is a tribute to Elton's mentor Long John Baldry, the man who "saved his life." Long John (a gay man himself) convinced Elton to accept his own homosexuality, and stop living a life of lies and secret pain. This song is more a celebration than anything else.

Starry Starry Night - Don Mclean Report Abuse
Heart-wrenching lyrics about Vincent Van Gogh's beautiful life and tragic death...... Starry, starry night. Paint your palette blue and grey, Look out on a summer's day, With eyes that know the darkness in my soul. Shadows on the hills, Sketch the trees and the daffodils, Catch the breeze and the winter chills, In colors on the snowy linen land. Now I understand what you tried to say to me, How you suffered for your sanity, How you tried to set them free. They would not listen, they did not know how. Perhaps they'll listen now. Starry, starry night. Flaming flowers that brightly blaze, Swirling clouds in violet haze, Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue. Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain, Weathered faces lined in pain, Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand. Now I understand what you tried to say to me, How you suffered for your sanity, How you tried to set them free. They would not listen, they did not know how. Perhaps they'll listen now. For they could not love you, But still your love was true. And when no hope was left in sight On that starry, starry night, You took your life, as lovers often do. But I could have told you, Vincent, This world was never meant for one As beautiful as you. Starry, starry night. Portraits hung in empty halls, Frameless head on nameless walls, With eyes that watch the world and can't forget. Like the strangers that you've met, The ragged men in the ragged clothes, The silver thorn of bloody rose, Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow. Now I think I know what you tried to say to me, How you suffered for your sanity, How you tried to set them free. They would not listen, they're not listening still. Perhaps they never will...
