    The song "Everybody Hurts" by REM always makes me a little sad.

    I find "Mad World" - Gary Jules pretty depressing.

    christmas shoes, now that IS a tear jerker for sure.

    glad to see nin on the list but surprised the song was "hurt" rather than "something i can never have" which is far more sad

    Four are very familiar but maybe I have heard few others.

    Barbara Streisand is....Evergreen!


    All music makes me depressed...reminds me of the good old days when we did nothing but laze around listening to music

    True but it really is a classic. I guess it depends on what mood you are in

    I must be a very depressed guy because I have a lot of the songs on that list, and ones mentioned here such as Mad World ad Everybody Hurts on my playlist.

    Any particular reason for that?

    This same song reminds me of my older sister. She cries whenever she hears it because it reminds us of our little brother who passed away when he was a month old. Cute little fella.

    I have to agree that most of the songs depend on your mood.

    I just heard "you don't bring me flowers" for the first time the other night!

    I'm glad My Immortal by Evanescence made the list.

    OK Anybody remember 'Stray'
    A 1970-72 ish UK band, SW London based, where supported once by Status Quo[who at the time got booed off stage].
    Anyway they were bloody marvelous, but didn't survive the into the mid 70s.

    I can't remember the title, but the words were basicaly:
    "Put the gun to my head, pulled the trigger, now I'm dead"
    Sort of Black Sabbeth meets Stepenwolfe sound.

    I would have been 16/17 so mixed with beer & stuff & adolesence -

    Mr. Big - To be With You: No particular reason why except is is the most awful sounding noise, I feel like slashing my wrists on the rare occasions that I hear it.

    Anything Rush made after the Counterparts album, all I can hear is Geddy screeching "buy our albums, the mortgage payment is late!", that is truly depressing since I was always a big fan.

    Since I listen to mostly happy hardcore and trance, I never have to worry about being depressed.

    I tried 'The Christmas Shoes', doesn't sound depressing at all to me, although it might be the fact that I barely have any taste in music :p

    How can they leave out the ultimate heartbreak song?:

    "They're Coming to Take Me Away (Ha, Ha!)" by Napoleon XIV

    Absolutely agree. As soon as I saw the thread that is what I thought about. It wasn't quite as depressing originally by Tears For Fears, because they are/were awful.

    Never been the biggest country fan but I think Toby Keith's "That's my house" is top on any list.

    There are several Youtube videos made of They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa
    I think this is one of the better ones.

    Wow. I'm absolutely stunned this song didn't make the list. When I saw the title, it was the first one that came to mind.

    Eric Clapton, Tears in Heaven:

    Another great candidate for the list should have been
    "Is That All There Is" by Peggy Lee
