    What song is the most depressing? Not because its bad, but it just makes you feel down (in a good way). My vote goes for either:

    Roads - Portishead

    or

    Nothing Better - Postal Service

    When I'm depressed, I listen to:

    The Smiths
    The Cure
    Death Cab For Cutie
    Joy Division
    Bright Eyes
    Belle & Sebastian

    We Rule the School by Belle & Sebastian is a good choice. So is The State That I'm In.

    Any random Cure, Smiths, or Joy Division song work.

    Death Cab and Bright Eyes is for when I'm super emo.

    The most depressing song I personally know of is "What Might Have Been" by Little Texas.

    I was lonelier than Kunta Kinte at a Merle Haggard concert
    That night I strolled on into Uncle Limpy's Hump Palace lookin' for love.
    It had been a while.
    In fact, three hundred and sixty-five had come and went
    since that midnight run haulin' hog to Shakey Town on I-10.
    I had picked up this hitchhiker that was sweatin' gallons
    through a pair of Daisy Duke cut-offs and one of those Fruit Of The Loom tank-tops.
    Well, that night I lost myself to ruby red lips,
    milky white skin and baby blue eyes.
    Name was Russell.

    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Well I find it's quite a thrill
    When she grinds me against her will
    Yes a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'

    Well, faster than you can say, "shallow grave",
    this pretty little thing come up to me and starts kneadin' my balls
    like hard-boiled eggs in a tube sock.
    Said her name was Bambi and I said, "Well that's a coincidence darlin',
    'cause I was just thinkin' about skinnin' you like a deer."
    Well she smiled, had about as much teeth as a Jack-O-Lantern,
    and I went on to tell her how I would wear her face like a mask
    as I do my little kooky dance.
    And then she told me to shush.
    I guess she could sense my desperation.
    'Course, it's hard to hide a hard-on when you're dressed like Minnie Pearl.

    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Well I find it's quite a thrill
    When she grinds me against her will
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'

    So, Bambi's goin' on about how she can make all my fantasies come true.
    So I says, "Even this one I have where Jesus Christ
    is jackhammering Mickey Mouse in the doo-doo hole
    with a lawn dart as Garth Brooks gives birth to something
    resembling a cheddar cheese log with almonds on Santa Claus's tummy-tum?"
    Well, ten beers, twenty minutes and thirty dollars later
    I'm parkin' the beef bus in tuna town if you know what I mean.
    Got to nail her back at her trailer.
    Heh. That rhymes.
    I have to admit it was even more of a turn-on
    when I found out she was doin' me to buy baby formula.

    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Well I find it's quite a thrill
    When she grinds me against her will
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'

    Day or so had passed when I popped the clutch,
    gave the tranny a spin and slid on into
    The Stinky Pinky Gulp N' Guzzle Big Rig Snooze-A-Stop.
    There I was browsin' through the latest issue of "Throb",
    when I saw Bambi starin' at me from the back of a milk carton.
    Well, my heart just dropped.
    So, I decided to do what any good Christian would.
    You can not imagine how difficult it is to hold a half gallon of moo juice
    and polish the one-eyed gopher when your doin' seventy-five
    in an eighteen-wheeler.
    I never thought missing children could be so sexy.
    Did I say that out loud?

    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'
    Well I find it's quite a thrill
    When she grinds me against her will
    Yes, a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is cryin'

    :(:up:

    Any album by Mazzy Star is potentially a soundtrack to suicide.

    "Calling All Stations" - Genesis

    Such a powerful song, both musically and lyrically. It's about the thoughts and regrets one must go through during the dying process...:(

    This one is a definite. Also, the same week my brother died, "Silent Lucidity" came out by Queensryche. Ever since then that song has made me sad.
