Posted:We've had a thread about beautiful songs...so why not sad songs?



I'm just curious as to what songs you listen to when you're feeling sad, lonley, soppy etc... songs that help you 'cope' kind of thing.



May I suggest a couple:



Come To Nothing - Evermore

Nothing Compares to you - Sinead O'Connor

1000 Oceans - Tori Amos


.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.

I can't listen to teardrop by massive attack or get a move on by mr scruff because it was played at my friends funeral



Although there are some songs that are sad, even without a connection to a sad time

My vote is for Bright Eyes (The band, not that cheesy song). Again, just about all of their songs. Here are some good ones:

- Land Locked Blues

- Arienette

- Let's Not S**t Ourselves

- The Center of the World

When I'm depressed it's all about Lucero.
(Not the latin super group Lucero, but the Lucero from Tennessee fronted by Ben Nichols that probably none of you have ever heard of, lol.)
They have *the saddest* songs ever written.

Lately I've been totally hooked on The Inner Universe by the Yoko Kanno Project, though.

Alice in Chains - Nutshell
A Perfect Circle - Orestes
Hell is for Heroes - The Quiet Song

Otherwise my mind is totally blank dammit!!!! I know I like more songs than this but there it is
