Sigh…another year and it’s the same old story. Once again, the football season has just started and my favorite team already has a losing record. Nothing seems to deflate me more than another opening day loss. So, of course, the logical thing to do is to put on some good depressing music! A good song doesn’t always have to be happy and upbeat. Sometimes these dark and hauntingly beautiful songs could be just what we’re in the mood for…and they can even make you feel a little better.

So here, in no particular order, are my Top Ten Sad Songs of All Time –

“Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want” – The Smiths

 “Something In The Way” – Nirvana

“Supernatural” – Vic Chesnutt

 “Clothes Of Sand” – Nick Drake

“How To Disappear Completely” – Radiohead

 “Alone”– Dinosaur, Jr.

“Something I Can Never Have” – Nine Inch Nails

“Gloomy Sunday” – Billie Holiday

 “Whiskey Bottle” – Uncle Tupelo

“Delicate” – Damien Rice

Well, there you have it – a truly depressing list!  So what are some of your favorites?
