    Oh, and Thunder did loads of meaningful material.

    Some that stand out is Till the river runs dry, This forgotten town and Like a Satallite..

    Nice call on the apocolyptica Eric. You heard nothing else matters by them?
    Also something about Gilmour's phrasing during Comfortably Numb in the final solo just makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Particularly towards the end when he plays at around the 18th fret, bloody magic.
    Nick Drake, as someone mentioned earlier, was a good answer. Didn't even think about him. It is, however, impossible to listen to his music loud.
    Anyone consider Parisenne moonlight and Moonlight Sonata or even Paschendale by Iron Maiden?

    How about things with a slower beat... With an actual sad mood, and sad lyrics too...

    Like Gary Jules - Mad World
    Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody

    To me, the cure's beat is kinda upbeat (Love Song) but with sad lyrics and it just doesn't give me that knot in my throat... maybe it's to be ironic
    That NIN - Hurt is really sad I like that one

    Maybe "Seal - Kissed By A Rose / Kiss From A Rose" (not sure which it is)

    Oh and, H.I.M. (His Infernal Majesty) - Gone With The Sin

    I would like a list of really morbid/dark/depressing/sad type music too... There's my 2 cents.

    some sad/depressing songs:
    Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
    Our Lady Peace - Thief
    Poets of the Fall - Late Goodbye
    R.E.M. - Everybody Hurts (not that sad or depressing)
    Red House Painters - Have you forgotten?

    thats all i could think of right now...

    I listened to these songs while going through a long depression. Very sad...trust me...get them. They'll make u cry if ur in the mood.

    Pink Floyd - Nobody Home
    - Comfortable Numb
    and the song off dark side of the moon....its just a guy talking at the start, then i woman breaks out singing for the rest of the song..very sad.

    Dream Theater version of Comfortably Numb is awesome....get that if u can, I recommend that over Floyds one.
    Alice Cooper - Hell is Living Without You
    - Might as well be on Mars
    Rocky Horror Picture Show - Super Heroes
    The Police - I'll be Watching You
    Brooke Fraser - Better
    Metallicas fade to black is good....however Sonica Artica version rips it...its done the way it should be done...believe me, get this one above all others.
    After silence....that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music...

    Have any of you heard,

    "Letters From Home" by John Michael Montgomery?

    Extremly touching song. Makes me tear up every time I hear it.

    Unhappy depressing songs

    well i think.... marilyn manson-coma white
    my song:
    just another day
    in another place
    with another face
    and i different personality
    to hide the shame
    to take the blame
    for the blood red stream
    and now i have the blade
    ill paint blood in every shade
    the pictures will be beautiful
    the pictures will be great
    the pictures will represent
    every thing i hate
    ill draw them with a razor
    ill draw them in my vein
    ill use the blood to take away my every little pain
    i slash open my skin and tie it with a knife
    to take away the pain and strife
    that has always been in my life

    Best sad songs!

    One of the best sad songs that i know is by Diamond Rio and it's a song called Your Gone. It will surely make you cry.

    Hopefully they haven't already been mentioned, but these songs definitely bring me to tears:

    "What Might Have Been" by Little Texas
    "Fear" by Sarah McLachlan
    "Best I Can" by The Chris Perez Band (Chris Perez is the late singer Selena's husband and he wrote this song for her after she was murdered---so so sad and touching)
    "No More Drama" by Mary J. Blige (this brings all kinds of emotions out of you)

    The End by The Doors!

    Also, Blues for Mama by J.J. Cale (To Tulsa and Back) - very sad but lovely song.

    Some of these songs are really sad and very depressing.

    '45'- Shinedown
    'Beat Me'- Custom (Really only if you listen to the lyrics it's upbeat in the music though)
    'Whiskey Lullaby' -Brad Paisley ft. Alison Kraus
    'Jolene'- Mindy Smith (cover of Dolly Parton but don't just drop it cause its by Dolly!)
    'Outside'- Staind
    'The Man Behind Blue Eyes'- Limp Bizkit
