I find the song I'm Blue by Eiffel 65 depressing. First of all he has a blue girl. So what is he complaining about? Sounds nice and exotic to me. And then he mentions his blue corvette. Probably how he scored that blue girl of his. Anyway I think he needs to open his eyes and be thankful!

My favorite

The Cure - Siamese Twins

Edit: the whole album "Pornography" is scaring me...

While the whole Pornography album is depressing, the Cure song I find most depressing is "Disintigration," from the album by the same name. Other good "depressing" songs by The Cure on the Disintegration album are "Same Deep Water as You" and "Prayers for Rain."

Heck, I could run a list of good "Depressing" Cure songs from other albums of thier's, but I'll go with other songs by other bands that I find haunting or depressing:

Keep Running Up That Hill -- Placebo covering Kate Bush
Roads -- Portishead
The 2 of Us -- Suede
Wholeness -- Halou
Love Will Tear Us Apart -- Joy Division
Mad World -- Tears for Fears or the Gary Jules cover

I could probably go down the Darkwave road to try and find more depressing stuff, but most of those songs just try to be sad rather than making the sorrow a thing of beauty.

I know most of them called here. I dont think the blue Nile album is that depressing. What about: The Sound, i think the song is called Winter.

It's good to see the Cure and Joy Division mentioned... Robert Smith is
my hero and Peter Hook - amazing.

I will submit the song Let Down by Radiohead.

For some reason cornball tunes like "Muskrat Love" by the Captain and Tenille make me want to find a shotgun and shoot the radio off the table. They are are more depressing than depressing songs.

Was a very dark song about a guy whos girl friend is ina coma cos of his driving I think. Does anybody know this song and who wrote it? Songs like this are good for perspective sometimes
That might be Girlfriend In A Coma by The Smiths (or was it just solo Morrissey?).

I would say Down From Dover by Dolly Parton is quite the downer, in a good way.

Oh, and Kwantam, I guess one of us will have to change our avatar.

No it wasnt, I imagine it inspired morrisey, although the smiths song wasnt really depressing I thought.
