|Sad Songs Which I Love Even In A Good Mood|
All these songs are full of depression, but I can listen to them in a good mood. No idea why, but here goes...
Where'd You Go
I used to binge on this song, basically. It's got about 250 listens on my itunes, as my friend makes me listen to it at least 15 times a day whenever he's around. Don't like it as much as I did, but it's still a good one.
What I've Done
Again, used to binge on it. Not many of their early songs count as sad, more as angsty, so I decided to go with this one.

I don't think I could ever tire of this one, it's just so beautiful! I haven't overplayed it yet as well, so all the better for me.
All of the songs are so weird, the depression is basically less affecting. Anyone else get the feeling of someone having spat in your mouth when you listen to Love's Secret Domain? No? Oh well, forget I said anything...
One of my favourite songs ever, it has to be said. Definitely a sad mood to it, and one of my favourites to play on guitar and sing along to.
It never manages to make me sad, but it's certainly incredibly powerful.
Over And Out
Again, I've binged on this song. Love it to bits, even attempted recording it myself with no help from anyone else. Failed miserably, but it was a nice thought.
Behind Blue Eyes
One of the most interesting concepts for a song that I know, I've managed to avoid overplaying this song as yet.
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Not exactly a mood ruiner, despite the fact it's very sad. My favourite Maiden song, as you might expect.
Feel Good Inc/El Manana
Those being the only two sad songs I can listen to off the album without making me particularly sad, I had to include them both. Don't know why, but I always feel they work better when listened to together.
Much better than Jesus Of Suburbia, which is in itself not bad either. One of my favourite Green Day songs.
Don't tell me it's not sad! It most certainly is, from the very underrated album of The 7 Day Theory. I reccommend you check it out if you don't have it.
Oh yes, Oh Me is one of the most underrated Nirvana songs, I feel. All of the Meat Puppets covers are excellent, but I find this easier to listen to than Lake Of Fire and Plateau.

Listening to it right now, in fact. Always a good song to listen to, it never really puts me in a bad mood.
|15||Nine Inch Nails|
When people ask me my favourite song of all time, I will almost always answer this one. The most listened to song on my itunes, but I won't bore you with how many times I've listened to it. The power of this song hasn't worn off, even after so many listens. I probably won't ever get bored of it. I cry to this when I'm sad, but just get absorbed when I'm not.
|Interesting idea for a list. I've found myself really getting into 10 lately.|
|you need to listen to more music. a lot of these are guilty pleasures for me though so you got me there|
|I listen to a lot more than this, don't worry. Plus, I'm only 14, and I've only really been into music for a couple of years max, so I've still got a way to go in terms of developing tastes. I'm pretty proud of how deep I go, actually. This list is only a VERY small amount of the music I listen to, as I say. I'll make a list of bands I'm surprised I like soon to show that I go a lot deeper.|
|I'd also be grateful if anyone had any suggestions for where I should go next in terms of music. Always good to have new bands to listen to.|
|Thrice, check out Thrice.|
|there's some overhyped teenie stuff here, but some really amazing songs as well. Hurt is indeed one of the saddest songs ever written imo, one of the few songs that really has the power to make someone cry.|
8 is great as well, 5 & 10 are also good and 11 too (I do believe it's one of their best as well, though I'm really not a big fan of either the band nor that album)
I think you'll find your way through to really great music anyway, but nevertheless I'd like to recommend some more classic stuff like The Who are. Check out Led Zeppelin, King Crimson, Rolling Stones, The Beatles and some more Pink Floyd. it's always good if you have some knowledge of where today's music comes from.
|Thrice is a name I've been hearing a lot, I'll try them. My mum has like every Rolling Stones CD there is, so that's pretty easy, and I have a lot of Pink Floyd. Led Zeppelin sound a bit dated... I haven't heard much of their stuff, but I'll try a bit. I'm not really a fan of The Beatles, but King Crimson is another band I should check out. Thanks!|
|List needs more A Perfect Circle - The Noose.|
|I can't listen to APC in a good mood easily. Shame, I really do love The Noose.|
