  • Favorite Sad, mopey songs

    What are yours? The ones that come to mind for me now are 'Everybody Hurts' and Gary Jules's version of 'Mad World'.

    The clothes do make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society at large.

    November Rain... GNR

    You've gotta do what you've gotta do.

      Right now, any song dealing with relationships and being away from someone you love.

      Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

        'Sometimes' by Linkin Park

        Sometimes things just seem to fall apart
        When you least expect them to
        Sometimes you want to pack up and leave behind
        All of them and all their smiles

        I don't know
        What to think anymore
        Maybe things will get better
        Maybe things things will look brighter
        Maybe, Maybe, Maybe

        Sometimes people surprise you
        And people surprise me
        But I guess thats the price we pay
        For wanting so badly

        I don't know
        What to think anymore
        Maybe things will get better
        Maybe things things will look brighter
        Maybe, Maybe, Maybe

          Blue Rodeo specializes in songs that give you that extra little kick when you are down and out.
          Morea, November Rain Definately has that effect. That whole Use Your Illusion phase for them was pretty depressing. Estranged and Don't Cry make me what to cry.

            red red wine, wandering boy, you are my sunshine...

            but they can all make me outrageously happy, (in a teary way), too.

                      I had to chime in here:

                      - One of my ex-bf's introduced me to Tom Waits and when we broke up every song on one of his CD's (can't remember which) made me cry. He has that scary sad kind of voice.

                      - For some reason most Smashing Pumpkins songs I ever heard also struck me as rather mopey.

                      - AND finally you can't have a sad, mopey post without mentioning Elvis Costello. That man has more broken-heart-relationship-gone-bad songs than anyone I can think of! And I like almost all of them!

                          If you haven't heard it, you need to do it now. It's on the album 'Mule'.

                              Why Does It Always Rain On Me - Travis

                              I'm not sure why I like that song.

                              Last Kiss - Pearl Jam

                              Very sad, but catchy.

                                It's really helpful to know you have been on both sides i.e applying as well as hiring, so I will stick to your advice about keeping it plain. Thanks.
