    Feeling a bit perturbed are we Phillypoo? All the peoples are picking on you, you poor widdle fing :D

    Dwyer Thread Derail Shocker!

    Wendy Matthews - The Day You Went away
  8. Solitaire - Carpenters
    Sail Away - Randy Newman

    What is it about Randy Newman - when he writes Happy songs, they're the happiest cheeriest songs *evah* (I Love LA, You got a friend in me, You can Leave Your Hat On, Mama Told Me Not to Come etc), but when he does sad ones they are *propah* sad (I think its going to rain, Bet No-one ever hurt this bad etc)
  9. LDR

    Green Fields of France is one song that can move me to tears.

  11. snoogles

    snoogles eats too many sweets

    There are lots, but the ones that spring to mind at the moment are...

    There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths
    Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack (another vote for this one)
    Theme from M*A*S*H - Manic Street Preachers
    Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers

    (plus of course pretty much every song Joy Division ever recorded...stereotypical though that is...)

    Thing about the last two is that I really dislike the Manics post-Holy Bible, *hate* Manics fans (sorry!), have never liked the self-pitying cod-literary pretentiousness of a lot of Manics songs, but these two...they're just bang on.

    For anyone who hasn't heard their version of Theme from M*A*S*H, go and listen to it! It used to be pretty hard to get hold of but think it's on their best of/B-sides album now, so it should be out there.

    better still, get the original 7" and listen to the far superior flipside which is Fatima Mansions butchering Shiny Happy People :)
  13. Cpatain Rbubish

    Cpatain Rbubish No friends, you don’t exist. You won't be missed.

  16. bmd

    bmd you left me standing here

    How can I put out the flame - Candi Staton. Absolutely kills me every time.

    Look on down from the bridge - Mazzy Star. I'd want it played at my funeral but it's a bit too much.

    Drink before the war - Sinead O'Connor.

    Walk in fire - Doves. Wishing someone would get through the drug thing and they aren't.

    isitme Banned Banned

    Atmosphere by joy division is one of the saddest songs, what with the history...

    most sad songs cheer me up when I feel sad, but that one just makes me even sadder

    Don't Explain, by Billie Holliday (I think....) is a nicer sad song
  21. CRI

    CRI Registered Chooser

    "Vincent" by Don McClean . . . about being bloody misunderstood, poor sod. Can never make it to the end without blubbing.
  22. MysteryGuest

    Lots of stuff by Tom Waits, off the top of my head 'Misery is the River of the World' is a safe bet.

    Most Nick Drake songs.

    Most Nico songs.

    This years Portishead album is also suitably bleak.

    Everything I own - Ken Boothe Reminds me of my former partner
    Sunshine on Leith - The Proclaimers Reminds me of a close mate killed in a car crash 6 years ago.

  26. twistedAM

    twistedAM Left Of The Dial

    Garth Brooks - The Dance and Lee Ann Womack's reply song i Hope You Dance.

    Brilliant songwriting esp by Brooks* - really sad but an uplifting message in there.

    * May i add that approximately 96% of Garth brooks output is mediocre before you all call me an Okie twat.
  27. albionism

    albionism A successful virus clinging to a speck of mud.

    i find Isolation rather uplifting and very dancable.
    Haunt Me by Arab Strap
    Perfidia by Phillis Dillon
