description:
Being sad, morose, or melancholy is an enormous part of being human, and seeing as how this world just keeps getting bigger, so do the feelings of loneliness. This comp is of songs that remind me of feeling that way, and having the knowledge that there are times when nobody can fucking help. Listen and weep, weiners.

Track 4 from Heartbeat City
Length: 00:03:54
Year: 1984
Track Description:
This song is basically about feeling completely and utterly sorry for yourself -simply drowning in your sadness. I know that everyone has at least once in their life sat in their car and cried whilst driving or being pulled over somewhere. Though Benjamin Orr's voice is a little cheesy in this song, it really stresses the main point of it all: "You can't go on thinking nothing's wrong."

Track 7 from Futures
Length: 00:06:25
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This song reminds me a lot of The Verve's "The Drugs Don't Work," and although both songs move me deeply, I picked this particular one because it truly voices the desperation of watching someone fall away from you. There is no end to the pain one feels when witnessing a drastic change in someone he or she loves or cares for. It is a deep and common hurt that occurs in everyone's life.

Track 3 from i
Length: 00:02:33
Year: 2004
Track Description:
It is a sad truth that past bad experiences with love often harbour themselves deep within someone, and in turn, that person will manifest
those sarcastic insecurities into a relationship that is actually worth investing trust in. At face value, these lyrics are casually cruel, but under the bouncing strings and light melody, there is a very vulnerable
sadness.

Track 5 from The Libertines
Length: 00:03:02
Year: 2004
Track Description:
"And alarm bells ring/When you say your heart still sings/When you're with me/Oh, darling, please forgive me/I no longer hear the music." What a perfect way of saying that you have fallen out of love, but what a devastating realisation that you finally have to admit it.

Track 1 from Live at L'Olympia
Length: 00:07:47
Year: 2001
Track Description:
The title says it all: the should/could/would haves of relationships. The
countless hours looking back and wondering if it were salvageable if someone had done just one thing differently. Jeff Buckley knows how to communicate exquisite and angst-dripping sadness through his whispers
and screams.

Track 0 from Hopes And Fears
Length: 00:03:35
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Who hasn't felt this way before? It is an eerie feeling to know that everyone around you can change within an instant, but it is even more frightening to know that you can subsequently change without knowing it. Suddenly, it is all different, and you cannot even keep your own head together.

Track 2 from Before the Dawn Heals Us
Length: 00:04:16
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Amidst the insistent banging of an electric keyboard, and the ambiguous sighs
of Nicolas Fromageau, it is apparent that there is some kind of battle being fought in this song. It makes me think of the slight hysteria that occurs within you when you have hit rock bottom, and you almost welcome the tears because you know you can't be fixed until you are
broken.

Track 9 from Transatlanticism
Length: 00:02:56
Year: 2003
Track Description:
This song is about being unable to know love without pain. Ben Gibbard based this song on director Woody Allen's only dramatic film "Interiors." It
is about a woman whose husband leaves her in her early 30s, to raise three extremely emotional and different daughters alone. They grow up,
get married, and have their own marital issues whilst the main
character still holds on to the hope that her husband will return. The film ends with her drowning herself after numerous failed suicide attempts, and it is said perfectly: "... walked into the angry sea/It felt just like falling in love again."

Track 0 from Django's Blues
Length: 00:02:42
Year: 0000
Track Description:
I normally connect to songs with well-written lyrics, but this particular
artist captures emotions so much better through his instrumentals. It
sounds like when you casually tell your friends that you are miserable, and they will really never know how true it is.

Track 2 from 0
Length: 00:04:38
Year: 2003
Track Description:
Oh, the King of Sadness, Damien Rice! I treasure this song because of its unique message. Most sad love songs deal with the fact that one is being abandoned or betrayed, but this is about having to push a lover
away because you can no longer bear to stay with them. "You give me miles and miles of mountains/But I ask for the sea."

Track 1 from Grown Backwards
Length: 00:04:13
Year: 2004
Track Description:
The beauty in the humming cello and Dave Byrne's poetic way of expressing that nothing matters anymore makes this a true heartwrencher. He paints the scenario by saying "it is just a house/not a home" and that his "bags are down and packed/for traveling." It is basically a journey to
self-death and acknowledging oneself as a pretender.

Track 0 from The Essential Neil Diamond (Disc 2)
Length: 00:03:40
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Most people hear "Neil Diamond" and think shiny shirts, hairy chests, and
drunken shouting. But I hear "Neil Diamond" and think "PURE
AWESOMENESS." The message in this tune really seals the deal, and the undebatable truth of "We all know this song." Just like we know all the rest of them.
