Post your favorite soul-crushing, depressing songs
 
I just wanna hear some music other people like. Right now I'm listening to a lot of slow, depressing sounding stuff. Probably the change of weather makes it more appealing.

Anyway, I'll kick this off by providing the metal perspective.

Warning - Footprints

Woods of Ypres - Traveling Alone

Woods of Ypres - Silver

Woods of Ypres - Alternate Ending

That last song is especially depressing, because the singer died in a car accident shortly before this, their break through album, came out. It almost seems like he's describing his death before it happened.

Swallow the Sun - The Giant

Anaal Nathrakh - When the lion devours both dragon and child

This is a little more aggressive. Okay, a lot more aggressive. This is one of the few bands I can only listen to in small spurts otherwise the onslaught of the music just starts to overwhelm me.

Bonus non-metal song Aesthetic Perfection - All Beauty Destroyed



Alright, I wanna hear some of what you guys like now. Doesn't have to be metal.

Elenor Rigby- The Beatles
This one was near and dear to my childhood. My dad had an 8-track machine and this was always on repeat

Good stuff. I'm digging the first track here. Their style really reminds me of something, but I can't put my finger on it. The bass in the background is really nice, too.

i'm not in to metal like OP, but i've always tended to like minor chord songs.

IMO music can be a powerful tool to express and articulate your feelings, and sad songs are no different. here's a couple of my faves by george harrison:



Give Me Love. somehow it's upbeat and sad at the same time.

Isn't it a Pity. i love how this song slowly builds in power until becoming a wall of sound.

I love The Beatles. I think they're actually my all-time favorite band. I used to have this insane collection with over 100 hours of live performances, weird B-Sides, goof ups, variations of songs, etc, stuff like that.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps is a favorite of mine.

16 Horsepower - Harm's Way

This isn't metal. They're sort of a folk band, I guess. I don't know if this song is necessarily sad or depressing or what. But I get such a strange sensation when I listen to it. And it isn't a positive feeling I get.

Carolina Chocolate Drops - Leaving Eden

No metal either. An awesome folk band. This song literally gives me the chills. I was fortunate enough to have seen this band perform live a couple years back. They're great and deserve all the praise they get.

And the mockingbird can sing
Like the crying of the dove
And I can’t tell my daughters
All the things that I am scared of
But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above
Dying’s just another way to lead the ones you love


Amazing stuff.

Thursday - Full Collapse - Understanding in a Car Crash



The band wrote the song about a friend they lose in a car crash. I saw them perform it live back in 2005 (I think) and it was amazing. You can feel the emotion in the song and how much it means to them.

Full Collapse is still one of my fav albums.
