Most depressing song you've ever heard?
Well, I just wanted to know what the most depressing song you've ever heard was. What song really got to you?
Some of the most depressing songs I've ever heard were:
I Know You Know (This Photograph is Proof) by Taking Back Sunday
Sanctuary by Utada Hikaru
And I think it's called "Like You'll Never See Me Again" by Alicia Keys, I believe. That one's pretty depressing.
I know there are a few more, probably I could name, but what songs do you fnd to be really sad?
I Saw the Queen
Swam Out Below Her Star on Sea Beneath
But Through Thick and Thin They've Gone Away
And Only Left Their Grief

I think pretty much every song I hear on the radio is depressing because how lousy they are.
The 70's ruled for sad and depressing songs.

The ones that sprang to mind for me:
Jewel - Painters
This made me cry like a bitch when I got the album when I was...oh, ten or eleven. If nothing else, it's depressing as hell. And some people detest Jewel, but she had some gems - and I think this may have been one of them.
Radiohead - Like Spinning Plates
This one just makes me feel completely emotionally drained. From the get-go. Even though my friend thinks that "You feed me to the lions," sounds like, "You feed me seagulls," which is kind of weird...and it kind of does...but still. Very depressing.
Amanda Palmer - Blake Says
This one tears me all asunder. The line that says, "He tells me that he's fine / and the sad thing is he's right." really hits perfectly, and causes moisture-y eye spillage upon occasion.
Ingrid Michaelson - The Chain
Sad in general, but if you listen to it after being dumped, your world will be utterly destroyed. Trust me.

It's a difficult question for me because sad songs make me happy, but this one's all-round bleak as shit..
