Song and Albums to play when you're depressed

Reply Mon 23 May, 2005 10:00 pm
What are some of your favorite songs to listen to when you're depressed but don't pep you up? Like they are at your level of depression and you can almost feel a connection becase you're 'going thru' the same thing.

I think its better formed as: What are some of your favorite depressing songs?

Righteous Brothers work, esp. "You'veLost that Lovin' Feelin'

Brooks Benton's Rainy Night in Georgia

Credence Clearwater's Revival

I don't know. Different things work with different moods.

Ever hear Clannad's "Against the Wind"? It's Celtic, of which I don't understand a word, but check it out if you can. It sounds very violent, whatever it is, but sometimes it's what I want.

'Raining in Baltimore' - Counting Crows
'A Boy's Best Friend' - the White Stripes
'Elizabeth on the Bathroom Floor' - the Eels
'Hurt' - Nine Inch Nails (the Johnny Cash cover is also nice and deeply depressed)

And anything by Joy Division as well.

anything at all by radiohead, when you feel miserable and u dont wanna be cheered up but would rather dwell in a cesspool of contemplative misery, then its time to put the radiohead on.

I disagree pretty strongly. In my opinion, Radiohead's most depressive album was The Bends, but only about half the songs I'd classify as such. Hmm, on Kid A the only depressing song I remember is "How To Dissappear Completely".

I think OK Computer as a whole is entirely uplifting and very positive, which is why it's my favorite. I listen to it when I'm running.

Anyway, most people will agree that on top of the band's most depressing material is "Street Spirit", the final track of The Bends... Ho-lee ****.

re the old post -
I have some celtic cds, not sure if I have that one.
If Creedance can't get me out of a funk, I'm in trouble. I don't want to hear it too often though, as I can get sick of music I've heard hundreds of times.

If I'm in a seriously horrendoma mood, some opera arias can lift me past myself, oh, the drama queen, music to connect to. The odd symphony, especially if I'm hearing it while driving through forest - which by itself can improve my humor - can be memorable for me in a bad time. Off hand, re forest driving, Mendelssohn's Italian, considered a "war horse". I also like to hear the cello going through the forest... and sometimes while being blue at home.
