|"The Creature Walks" is sad in your opinion? Interesting....|
I would've maybe said "Dinner With a Gypsy"...or perhaps even "The Pot-Bellied Goddess," but that's just me.
|"Black," of course.|
Demon Hunter's "Carry Me Down."
Eminem's "Rock Bottom."
Gary Jules' version of "Mad World."
|I dunno, maybe it was the repetition of "it's over" and "can't you feel these dreams, it's o(oh oh)ver," but granted, my music taste is very.....strange. iunno. |
|sad lyrics are an obvious giveaway, but when the actual music emotes sadness or a certain longing emotion, like Radiohead's Reckoner, or Mayonaise by Smashing Pumpkins, thats what really gets me. some sweet recs so far though..|
|I dunno, something about The Creature Walks gives off a really defeated vibe IMO, same with a lot of the other recs I gave. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but that's how music is.|
|hey sometimes those are the best songs to recommend to people. i mean everyone telling everyone the same shit, we would get nowhere. |
|Yeah...imagine if everyone had rec'd "Mad World" or Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt"...no one gets anywhere like that.|
But while I speak of covers that everyone's heard, let me say that John Cale's version of "Hallelujah" (the one that plays in Shrek) is the most melancholy version I've ever heard. It's also my favorite, my owning Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' notwithstanding.
|haha that part of Shrek was SO melancholy, and the song definitely made it. But agreed, iunno, I like my sad songs all wistful, almost whiny sounding.|
|Elliot Smith - Say Yes|
Opeth - To Bid You Farewell
|Dude if you want music that sounds sad just get The Antlers-Hospice first. Id go with Bon Iver next but Hospice is the saddest album I've ever heard.|
Also some damien rice is good, Delicate comes to mind but O in general gives that vibe sometimes.
Dashboard Confessional-Screaming Infidelities or just the album the places you have come to fear the most.
The Dear Hunter- Red Hands
Dredg- The canyon behind her
Eleventh he reaches london- Oh, brother
The Earth is not a cold dead place has a surprisingly sad mood sometimes (to me at least). Try first breath after coma.

|Frightened Rabbit - Poke|
totally sadder than my backwards walk.
|Shellac - Squirrel Song (Saddest song of all time, no question)|
|I'm surprised no one's mentioned "Backend of Forever" by Coheed and Cambria. That one's gotten to me a few times. Also "All the Love In the World" by Nine Inch Nails|
|surprised no one's said more by radiohead:|

|Maybe it's just me but I find Say Yes and Never Meant to be pretty uplifting|
|obviously not reccing those, responding to them being rec'd|
|"Maybe it's just me but I find Say Yes and Never Meant to be pretty uplifting"|
well if you read the lyrics of each song, they are both pretty depressing. but i know what you mean, it sounds more uplifting than sad, but the stories in the songs are definitely sad.
