New meme!

”The most depressing song of all time, which we still love to hear”

Post a video and the lyrics (if applicable) of your most loved, most depressive song of all time, and tag three victims to do the same.
Here’s mine: Fade to black by Metallica, solace from my early childhood

Fade To Black

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can’t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now He’s gone

No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late
Now I can’t think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

I hereby tag the following three bloggers:
Fairuza, for it was she who thought this one up
Lofter, because he has very nice music and poems on his blog
Susie of Arabia, but she can post captain Kabob’s choice too, I am curious to hear either
Tony just because he’s back!

And for those who do not like heavy metal too much, beautiful and melancholy, Pink Floyd:

And if you want a really peacuful song, Loreena McKennit

And now my charms are all o’erthrown
And what strength I have’s mine own
Which is most faint; now t’is true
I must be here confined by you

But release me from my bands
With the help of your good hands
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
Which was to please.
Which was to please.
Now I want spirits to enforce, art to enchant
And my ending is despair,
Unless I be relieved by prayer

Which pierces so that it assaults
Mercy itself and frees all faults
As you from crimes would pardon’d be
Let your indulgence set me free.

LOL

This is so funny because when I was out and about today I was thinking of making up this meme on my own! What fun! I love songs that drip with depression and self-pity (what else would you expect from a former Goth). Oh, I just can’t wait! You made my day. Except, I cannot chose just one! I simply MUST do a top 5….bawwahahaha!

Ah, yes, I keep adding to my collection here too! ๐Ÿ˜€
Excellent Meme Fairuza!
The more depressing and self-pitying a song, the better I feel! :mrgreen:
At the moment I feel very Loreena McKennit…

My current most all-time favorite depressing song and video is “Broken” by Seether (the version with Amy Lee). I played it one time when Tucker was having one of his trembling fits and it actually made my wife cry. (Sorry, hon.)

I have posted my Depressing song. It doesn’t seem depressing at first but if you listen carefully it is….

– you tagged 4, you better take some extra curricular math lessons

Hi Aafke,

Billy Joel writes the most depressing songs in my book. Especially this one:

However, no one has it worse than this little guy ๐Ÿ™‚

Wildstorm, thank you

Saudi in US, yeah, that Billy Joel-song got me very depressed, but not in a cheerful way, when I was very young…

Yeah, and thanks for that second one… I didn’t know it (fantastic animation!!!) but very apposite. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
What do you mean ”nobody has it worse than this little guy”???
Do you know who is the model for that little guy???
Shall be on my list next time

I was in Saudi for 3 weeks after all ๐Ÿ™‚

Aafke

hum…
some people live out their whole life in Saudi…
And I know from experience one doesn’t have to be actually literally inside saudi to be suffering some of the same hardships…

Thank you for your support, and subtile choice of words.
Urgh! You know my preferences in music so well!

Hey Dennis,

I actually like the Seether song and at first listenning I found it a rather hopefull song. It’s more of a song that should inspire one to better one’s self. I’ll submit my most depressing song here now:

Most…..Depressing…..Song……Ever!
But that’s a story for another day.

Regards,
Rhysz

Here’s a little taste,
