    I agree with many suggestions.

    I have two other candidates:

    Elvis Costello, "I want you". Most people have been there, to want someone that you can't have and there are billions of songs written about it but Costello paints it so beutifully.

    Elliot Smith, "Waltz #2 (XO).
    "I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow".
    It's sooo depressing...

    Sarah McLachlan-Fallen
    Alice In Chains-Nutshell
    Coldplay-The Scientist
    Gloomy Sunday (many people sing this old song)
    Smashing Pumpkins- Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
    Oasis-Sad Song
    Jimmy Eat World-Here you Me
    Sevendust-Angel's Son
    Bruce Springsteen-Streets of Philidelphia

    Some of these are probably repeats, but hey what can you do? These are some of my favs.

    Sad songs...

    What about throwing copper - lightning crashes, verve pipe - freshmen, r.h.c.p. - under the bridge; scar tissue, and queen - bohemian rhapsody.
    especially the last one. its about a kid who was given the death sentence.

    All of Explosions In the Sky's work. All of their songs are instrumental and very passionate and emotional. They can be seen as sad or uplifting, they kind of fit any situation you are in and boost it.
    "Peace and happiness.....happiness....yeah.....happiness." - Hendrix

    Almost everything by Hogarth-era MARILLION. Some stuff is really hard to swallow (the Brave album) or somehow uplifiting, yet leaving you with a melancholic feeling (e.g. Afraid of sunlight album - that one belongs into EVERY record collection!!)

    We get the dreams that we deserve.... - Marillion

    Surrey, BC, Canada.
    Anything by The Tea Party, Creed, or Staind. ( Not saying I enjoy them.. x.x; )
    Nine Inch Nails has a lot of depressing and 'deep' songs. Especially off their newer albums.
    Uhm, a few Evanescence songs really get to me.
    'Since you've been gone.' - Theory of a Deadman.
    But, the saddest song.. of all time..
    'Nothing else matters.' - Apocalyptica.
    It was a sad song as it was originally by Metallica.
    Get rid of the vocals, and add the epic and deep sound of three cellos harmonizing.
    And bam! There ya go. n.n;
    Hope I was of help.

    - Janelle.

    There's a few tracks that gets me down, but I can say Bella Morte 'Neverland' wins hands down. I always feel numb and isolated after I listen to this one, its sad this one. So sad...so so sad...sighhh. Life is sh*t

    Hey guys, I lurk on here a lot but i'm here to contribute to this great list. Some very good songs mentioned. I might mention some already mentioned because I don't think it is possible to remember all that were posted at once.

    Breaking Benjamin - Breath
    Submersed - Dripping
    Brad Paisley - Whiskey Lullaby
    Evanescence - My Last Breath
    Within Temptation - Memories(you gotta love the vocal range of the singer)
    Limp Bizkit - Build a Bridge(Their is a good reason for this! Just check this song out, I could care less about this band but this song is good, its not typical LB)
    Exit the Ride - Reach(Bill Peck's band)
    Faktion - Maybe(awesome lead guitar lines in this song along with relationship problem lyrics)
    Goo Goo Dolls - Black Balloon(don't know why but their is just something about the guitar tones and melodies they have that get me everytime)
    Kamelot - Abandoned
    Opeth - Hope Leaves
    Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
    Saliva - Storm(I believe these guys are very underrated and overlooked for their mainstream rap-rock early 00's sound, but this song is very well written)

    Now to really show me as a US southerner(for you guys not in the US, another term is redneck)

    Garth Brooks - The Dance(ever since he sang this song live at the 2001 NASCAR awards banquet for Dale Earnhardt I flat out shed a few tears everytime I hear this song)
    Tim McGraw - Red Ragtop

    Felt I should reply since I've gone out and listened to most of the suggestions here. One truly great piece of pseudo-classical music is the theme from Schindler's List performed by Itzhak Perlman, an incredibly evocative piece.

    there r so many different types of 'depressing' songs, its so hard to classify! I kinda just endd of a long-term crush and been listening to depressing (soppy actually) love songs that bring tears 2 my eyes....some of them include:
    Mario Vazquez - Gallery
    Seether ft. Amy Lee - Broken
    Frankie J - Don't Want to try
    Rihanna - Unfaithful
    any boys II men songs will do
    R Kelly and Celin Dion - I'm Your angel
    3 Doors Down - Here Without You
    Natalie - going crazy

    but obviously, if your not love depressed, i recommend:
    Jimmy Eat World - 23....(one of my favorites, its so beautiful), May Angels Lead You In
    Lydia - December
    Secondhand Serenade has some pretty depressing songs...
    then the obviously depressing ones like NIN, staind, coldplay...but everyone's already listed those!

    I know this is an old thread, but here's some sad songs:

    "Sleeping Bear, Sault Saint Marie" by Sufjan Stevens
    "Sunken Treasure" by Wilco (the Jeff Tweedy solo version is more poignant) "Trouble," "Sparks," "Warning Sign," by Coldplay
    "A Ballad" by Kate Rusby
    "Maybelle" by Ida
    "Don't Get Sad" by Ida
    "Are You Tired Of Me, Darling?" by the Carter Family
    "Long Gone Lonesome Blues" by Hank Williams
    "Hurt" as performed by Johnny Cash (I cried when I saw the video)
    "See The Sun" by Dido
    "I Should Have Been Watching You" by Hayden
    "Caroline, No" by the Beach Boys
    "Another Lonely Day" by Ben Harper
    "The Passenger" by the Kings of Convenience
    "Transatlanticism" and "Brothers On A Hotel Bed" by Death Cab For Cutie

    Odd how sometimes we have a craving for the melancholy...
