What is the most depressing, sad song, either lyrically, instrumentally or likewise, in any genre?

My vote goes for Antimatter, the whole album Planetary Confinement makes me cry almost every time I listen to it and especially songs Weight of the World and Epitaph. I like sad music.

I find The Angelic Process pretty damn heart-defeating.

Aye



This is just soul-destroying, along with the rest of this album.

This is an interesting topic that is going to depend heavily upon someone's owns tastes and life experiences. As for me, a few that come to mind include:

Sonata Arctica - The Misery
Sonata Arctica - Tallulah
Nightwish - Sleeping Sun
Evergrey - Closure
Evergrey - Words Mean Nothing

The things that have caused me the most grief in life are loss and heartbreak so my selections generally reflect those emotions and times accordingly. Most of Katatonia's catalog reflects this is some way so I refrained from including any of their songs on the above list. Recently the song Uniformity by Dark Tranquillity has been pulling on my melancholic heartstrings quite a bit so that may end up here too, I don't know.

This song is just so mournful that I can't help but be affected by it. This whole album is like that too.

Gonna have to go with White Light by The Ghost Inside. I equate the last minute of that song to watching Marley and Me over and over again while cutting onions.

This song starts of with some lo-fi instrumentals, evolves into absolute sonic bliss, and then turns into one of the most hard-hitting, sad tracks I've ever heard. The lyrics are blunt but real, and feel far more genuine than a lot of "sad/emotional" songs you come across in the indie scene. Even though the song itself talks about an issue far different from my own, some of the lines here just hit home on such an accurate level. Can't guarantee that it'll have the same effect, because a large amount of what makes it hit so hard for me is my own personal experiences with what I've been going for. However, this song is still absolutely outstanding from a purely musical perspective, so it's still more than worth the listen. (Seriously, you won't find lo-fi that does this stuff anywhere else)

Wow 2:55-4:10 of that gave me an aneurysm. Rest I appreciated though

The Angelic Process - Dying in A Minor is my pick. I don't think it will ever be topped.

Alice in Chains - Down In A Hole: I love Alice in Chains, and I love this song, but I don't listen to them as much as other bands because some of their songs (like this one) just depress me. This isn't true with any other sad music for the music part, but Alice in Chains really strike a sad emotional chord within me.

I'll join the ranks of those who mention Woods of Ypres. I don't have any specific song in mind, more like the entire Grey Skies and Electric Light album. To record an album so obsessed with the relation between life and death, and to die before its actual release... That's something to get sad about, methinks.

From Songs to Leave until Negative megalomania the albums were a beast.
Then they suddenly started writing blander songs, which is a shame...

The Raven That Refused To Sing is probably the most moving, sad song I have ever heard. It's also simply a great tune, with an interesting (yet not needlessly complicated) chord progression and beautiful lyrics.

Whole album crushes me.

Always come back to it though it makes me feel disheartened.
There is something appealing in being fucked up.

I Could Live In Hope is one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. More depressive than a lot of suicidal black metal out there.

Pretty much. I tend to find things like these, and some Doom bands, to be the most depressive kind of music.
DSBM isn't actually too depressive, though I enjoy the genre for the music. Maybe Lifelover coz of the fucked up gritty urban decadent atmosphere but it's more about feeling uneasy/messed up than depressed.
