We have all heard them, and while some people choose to listen to them some people just cant. Whether or not it is personal reasons or just because the song is depressing we choose not to. What songs do you find depressing and have trouble listening to? And do you feel music has a fairly large role in your life?
For me it's gotta be:
Hurt-The Johnny Cash version is the most depressing version, especially if you watch the video with him and his wife. Just to see him still plucking away and hitting the key on that piano just, well, hurts. The Trent Renzor version is also pretty depressing, with the images of war and death. I have trouble listening to them for whatever reason.
Mad Mad World-Tears for Fears, another song thats just kinda depressing the way they play on the sad, repetitiveness of life and society.
Comfortably Numb-Pink Floyd. I am a huge Floyd fan, but I still have trouble with this song, one reason is kinda personal but the other is just because of what the entire thing means.
For me, I find music has a pretty big part of my moods. When I listen to my metal (Huge Marilyn Manson fan, also enjoy Slipknot and other similar bands) I just want to get out and do things, whether it's ride, work out or just work. When I listen to easy stuff (eg: Californication is a song I like to sit and chill to, or pretty much any song by The Who) I just wanna sit and relax, or just chill in the garage and do a few things on my bikes.
