    Fingerstyle acoustic stuff has always really talked to me. If you wanna try it check out for instance Jim Croce "These Dreams" and "New York's not my home" the melodies are so melancholy you'll be feeling it before he even starts singing.

    I think both Over the Rainbow and Mission Impossible were done by JP. Though I could be living a lie too

    If you're into very melodic, electronicly created music, Check out "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space" by Spiritualized, off of an album of the same name. It's "trip" music by all rumor, but it doubles as slit-your-wrists to music.

    R.E.M.'s "Try Not To Breathe" isn't overtly depressing or melancholy, but when you listen to the lyrics, it's a very depressing song.

    "I will try not to breathe.
    I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees.
    These eyes are the eyes of the old, shiver and fold.

    I will try not to breathe.
    This decision is mine. I have lived a full life
    and these are the eyes that I want you to remember. "

    It's about an older man succumbing to the inevitable.

    Silverchair's "Suicidal Dream" is a very angry-depressed song, apperently written by the lead singer when he was 16. It's rare for a 16-year-old to write so powerfully and succinctly about suicide without succumbing to the cliches. Very easy to identify with,
    personally. What ever happened to them, by the way? Does anyone know if they're doing anything? They were way popular a few years back, and I haven't heard about them since.

    along the Staind vein, Aaron Lewis, their lead singer, did an impromptu cover of Pearl Jam's "Black" on the 2002 (I believe) Family Values Tour. It is AMAZING. In my opinion, he puts pain and sorrow into the song that is somewhat lacking in the original, which is somewhat frustrating for me.

    There is an amazing group called The Reindeer Section. They have a few melancholy songs, such as "Will You Please Be There For Me", "Your Sweet Voice" , and "Cold Water".

    To go way back, Jewel's album Peices of You had some very powerfully sad songs, such as "Painters" and "Adrian".

    Just my favorites to listen to when I'm in that mood, hope I've turned someone onto any of these songs.
    There is nothing left now but death.

    Sad stuff

    I saw someone else pointing out The Cure. Their 'Pornography' is one of their most depressing albums.

    Other very good and saddening songs:
    Correspondences by Tea Party
    Cool Water by Talking Heads
    Rain From Heaven by Sisterhood (Andrew Eldrig's first solo-sisters of mercy)


    I used to be very much into depressive stuff in my teens (very original of me ), but I actually got stuck in some kind of depressive state, and that's not a good place to be stuck. Like it's fun to joke about being crazy, but less fun actually being it. Besides the danger of romantisising (not that I say you do that) moody music, I think it's a kind of cheap trick to always write that kind of stuff (like some groups do). Genuinely 'up' music is much more difficult to be honest about (honesty being the prime quality in music and life, imho). Guys like Steve Morse and Neil Peart never let themselves despair, and that makes them my heroes! (although at times, depression is a good thing too). Ramble ramble...

    I got what you want. The band is called lacrimas profundere and go get the songs : Without, Lastdance, adorer and somebody. (for adorer and somebody i suggest the version from the memorandum album, the newest version is ... crappy a bit.)

    This band gives me depression everytime i listen to it. Some people classify this band as doom/rock
    or gothic/rock cause sometimes the singer scream a bit, not too much but just enough to fit the mood of the song. But, most of the time he sings clean vocals and he's got the best depression voice i've ever heard. Unfortunately, their latest album wasnt very good. It sounded kinda happy but if you want depression get any songs on the memorandum album and burning a wish album.

    Tell me what you think.
