50 cent and candy shop.
 
 I find it incredibly depressing that anyone could buy into such a no-talent.

 Girlfriend in a coma, There is a light, Suffer little children....the list is endless as everyone knows!
 
 The Beautiful South can get pretty maudlin as well. One of my favourite sad songs of theirs is "Woman in the wall"
I'll have to agree with you about The Smiths.  Hell, for that matter, almost any band from Manchester.  They are a bunch of miserable bastards in the that city.    :p

although that satire was hilarious, really, you're completely missing the point.
 
 no one in their right mind would try to argue that 50cent is talented, it's the people who make his music who have the skills to pay the bills.

this list is utter shit.
 just picked a few examples here.
 
 #1: one: is this a _POP_ song? wtf?  that's all i have to say about that one.
 #2: my immortal: when i hear this song, i don't think depressing, i think pain.  as in this song is so bad it's painful to listen to.  evanescence lyrics are so bad that even trent reznor would be too embarassed to have released them!
 #3: love will tear us apart:  i'm sure i could easily find a more depressing joy division song. LWTUA is one of the more upbeat-sounding JD songs, i think.
 #4: landslide: not nearly the most depressing songs in the SP catalog, but it's not even an SP song.  at least pick a song by the band if you're going to compile a list like this.  though i do prefer this cover to the original and any other covers i've heard.  most SP covers kind of suck.
 #5: comfortably numb: again, i would say this isn't the most depressing song in the PF catalog.  i'm not sure what i'd pick, but when i think of the wall, i don't really think depressing so much as i think "over-the-top" and "over-rated".  i mean i like pink floyd a lot (i own practically all the albums -- missing only a couple compilations, zabriskie pt sdtrck and the '87 live album), but the wall isn't their best work and i'm sure i could pick out a more depressing song than that.  i'm also in the camp that thinks that DSOTM is over-rated as a PF album.
 #6: prayers for rain: come on.  there's SO much more to choose from than prayers for rain.  check out the live performance of disintegration that's on the prayers for rain single.  it blows the album version away and i'd rank it above the album version of prayers for rain also as far as this category goes.  also, why do people always forget about the album 'faith'?  there's plenty of stuff to go on there.  i think the cure 'trilogy' was utter BS.  pornography/disintegration/bloodflowers isn't nearly as good of a trilogy as seventeen seconds/faith/pornography.  that's the real trilogy there.
 
 
 why do people constantly feel like they have to compile ridiculously subjective lists like this? i mean.. isn't there enough of this bullshit on VH1 these days? (when they're not showing something like 'the fabulous life of...' or the latest season of the surreal life.

 No, it's the song that goes "And the cats and the cradle and the silver spoon, little boy blue and the man in the moon.  When you coming home son?  I don't know when. But we'll get together then, dad, you know we'll have a good time then."  Ugh, eyes tearing up just thinking about that song.

i still stand by my belief that the saddest song I have ever heard is "Messenger Bird Song" by Bright Eyes.  Ouch.  Hurts just thinking about it.

Cats in the Cradle is a Harry Chapin tune.  It's depressing enough without knowing the fact that Harry was later killed in an auto accident.

What about BEN, by Michael Jackson.  A song about a rat.

I always thought the most depressing thing about that song was that some cheesey, second-rate hair-metal band went to the Top Ten with a remake of it.

'Honey' by Bobby Goldsboro.  Depressing.  And dreadful.
