This is my entry for the contest. Had to reach into my collection for a couple songs I haden't listened to in awhile. All of these songs envoke a sad feeling both through lyrics and music.

Hope you enjoy, will post a link once it has finished uploading.

Track 7 from Surfacing
Length: 00:04:28
Year: 1997
Track Description:
Sarah McLachlan is one of my guilty pleasures. Her singing on this song is so beautiful it could probably make a biker cry. The song was written about the Smashing Pumpkins touring keyboard player who overdosed on heroin.

"Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always one reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight."

Track 5 from Garden State Soundtrack
Length: 00:05:20
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I didn't want to put this on here due to it already being present on a mix for the contest and the overuse of this track and others from the Garden State Soundtrack (I'm guilty), but this song is one of the first that came to mind. The accoustics and singing have such a sombre feeling and of course the lyrics are great.

"Your face it dances and it haunts me
Your laughter's still ringing in my ears
I still find pieces of your presence here
Even after all these years
But I don't want you thinking I don't get asked to dinner
'Cause I'm here to say that I sometimes do
Even though I may soon feel the touch of love
I just don't think I'll ever get over you."

Track 5 from Damnation
Length: 00:04:29
Year: 2003
Track Description:
Probably the sadest song in the Opeth catalog and one of my favorites. Probably their strongest song lyrically. I connect with this song on many levels.

"Gone through days without talking
There is a comfort in silence
So used to losing all ambition
Struggling to maintain what's left

There is a wound that's always bleeding
There is a road I'm always walking
And I know you'll never return to this place"

Track 11 from The Science Of Things
Length: 00:04:36
Year: 1999
Track Description:
Not a big fan of this album, but this is an amazing song. Beautifully written, beautifully sung, and beautifully produced.

"You in the sea
On a decline
Breaking the waves
Watching the lights go down
Letting the cables sleep

Whatever you say its alright
Whatever you do its all good
Whatever you say its alright

Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way"

Track 12 from In Absentia
Length: 00:05:54
Year: 2002
Track Description:
Nothing but piano, vocals, mellotron, and a lot of reverb. Last (non-hidden) track from In Absentia. Again beautiful and sad.

"I wont heal given time
I wont try to change your mind
I won't feel better in the cold light of the day
But I wouldn't stop you, if you wanted to stay"

Track 12 from Trading Snakeoil For Wolftickets
Length: 00:03:06
Year: 2004
Track Description:
Great song I heard first while watching Donnie Darko. It has a very depressing feel to it.

"And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad world"

Track 10 from Night Bugs
Length: 00:03:46
Year: 2002
Track Description:
This song, along with the next, is one of the saddest sounding songs I've ever heard. This song is a sort of inner dialog, which reminds me very much of my favorite poem: "The Lovesong of J. Afred Proofrock."

"She has such an awful lot of soldiers
Quite a lovely army all her own
Night and day they stand before the fortress
Very safe but very all alone."

Track 4 from Kid A

Year: 2000
Track Description:
Again, one of the saddest sounding songs ever. Radiohead is good at that.

"In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah it's gone
And I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here."

Track 8 from Violence in the Snowy Fields
Length: 00:06:02
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This song is slightly more up-beat sounding to keep you from killing yourself after the last stretch. Although, it talks about death so I may have failed. Feels somewhat akin to the next song "Hurt."

"When I have my day
The song that I sing
Carries back to the source
And back through them and [me]
Did you know others
Your voice, your king
Once was your slave."

Track 14 from The Downward Spiral
Length: 00:06:14
Year: 1994
Track Description:
Extremely sad, powerful song written by Trent Reznor. Just as effective (more to some) when sang by Johnny Cash. I prefer the NIN version, but definitely considered Mr. Cash's due to how powerful the context and video were.

"What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt."

Track 11 from Let It Die
Length: 00:03:15
Year: 2004
Track Description:
Beautiful and malencholy, but not too much. Great way to end.

"Now at last I know
What a fool I've been
For I've lost the last love
I shall ever win

Now at last I see
How my heart was blind
To the joys before me
That I left behind."
