Um, wasn't that David Bowie?
yes it was, but the point is if you wernt depressed when it come on, you will be when its over
I don't know if this qualifies as "Pop" but....
Cat's in the Cradle by Harry Chapin.
yep, Im gonna take the word "pop" out of title
Does "any song by Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, or any boy band" count?
Maybe "depressing" isn't the right word. How about nauseating?
, I guess it counts, there are no rules, just put what ever depresses you
Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion
Hands Down: Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot.
Comedian Richard Jeni once did a bit about if you're having a party & want people to go home, you play that song.
Chrissie Hynde's version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" makes me want to slit my wrists. The most depressing Christmas song ever......and that includes the one where the kid gets his dying mama some shoes.
, ohh that is depressing and thats so funny
Well, low-key wasn't entirely off with Elton John either. He had a song "Rocket Man" Similar idea to Major Tom. Catchy tune but if you really listened to the words and thought about what it meant it was also kind of depressing. Not as depressing as Major Tom, but still...
And speaking of Elton John, how about "Candle in the Wind"
Also, "If I Die Young" by Thompson Square
"One" by Metallica (any song based on Johnny Got His Gun is going to be depressing because that is one depressing novel.)
I've heard that same story attributed to many people, but whomever said it, it's true
"I'll Be True To You" by The Oak Ridge Boys
thanks , same era, same type of song depression
Don't take the girl Tim McGraw
Tear in Heaven
Blood on the saddle.
'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails or as performed by Johnny Cash...

Everybody Hurts - REM
The Freshman - The Verve Pipe
Brick - Ben Folds Five
Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
The Christmas Shoes - NewSong
I cry every time! That one and "Live Like You Were Dying".
