If you listen to it closely it seems as if all hope is taken away...Listen to sample
The lyrics are just so sad. It makes me to feel like everything is gone. When you listen the song you are able to just be somewhere else out of this world for a while. (Sorry for bad English. I'm from Finland)Listen to sample

Not just the song, the story behind it,
the tale of syd barratt,
this song as so much power and meaning with in to simple verses.
A soulful and screaming guitar line is combined with deep vocals creates a raspy yet quiet jam.
So beautiful. But my fave will always be Queen. But still, Pink Floyd's still in my top ten or five or so.Listen to sample
just listen to the lyrics including the music video. its as if the world around you in slowly dissapering.Listen to sample
This song is an absolutely, painfully heartfelt yearning to not be where you are. From a band with many powerfully emotive tracks, this one must be considered the most exceptionally brilliant of them all.Listen to sample
This song is depressing because of how stupid it is. The lyrics suck, the reason for this song sucks and it is the third worst song ever made.
My pressing the play button is a... stab... through my own heart. The sky darkens. I feel alone. I'm transported onto a bald mountaintop of dark stone. The clouds engulf my vision. Whatever. I'm possessed by the depressingness of this song. And I don't understand why there isn't at least 15 Joy Division songs in this countdown.

This is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard. I love Evanescence but every time I hear this song it makes me want to cry. This song along with My Immortal. On top of that they are on the same album which makes the whole thing even sadder. Amy Lee sure knows how to make someone break down into tears with her music... Another reason to love Evanescence.Listen to sample
This song is so depressing it's about falling into a deep state of depression that you can't find your way out of this song could easily make it to the top 10Listen to sample
Isn't the point of the whole song depressing?Listen to sample
See the video - you would see what they do with animals. It's disasterListen to sample
The whole sound of the song is spacy and depressing and corgan adds a wonderful touch of anger to the depression.Listen to sample
Michael Stipe's voice pierces like a dagger and the theme of the song really strikes a note with anyone feeling down. You come out of the song feeling like your day has been lifted a little bit.Listen to sample
This is a good angry depression song. The loud and quiet dynamic of the song is original and fitting to the music.Listen to sample
You can literally feel Corgans pain and anger towards his father and the simple set up and slow addition of the strings section deepen the sound to a sonic nirvana.
This is a sad and very meaningful song, the first verse diarm you with a smile suggests corgan's desire to take every thing against him, and deflect it with love instead of anger. It tells a story about how one hopes to deal with hard things in life.Listen to sample
The singer is singing about his wife being destroyed slowly by anti depressants and you can hear his distain and the country twang that hits home.Listen to sample
