    OK you asked for it

    More disturbing than depressing.

    I found this tumblr site with a great list of sad, sad, music.

    http://depressing-music.tumblr.com/

    I'm listening to song #4, Giles Corey, Guilt is my Boyfriend and I want to slash my wrists just to make it stop!!

    Pause button worked fine for me.

    All of the tracks posted here are just wanker emo stuff -- nothing seriously suicidal, just teenaged acne self-absorbed mirror gazing.

    Huh>??? I listened to all and wouldn't characterize a single track as Teenage Emo Wanker stuff .... maybe we have different definitions of Teenage Emo Wanker.

    For those that want a list of of depressing instrumental music, some of these might be of interest:

    Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings (a bit cliche, but it is still sad/depressing)
    Penderecki - Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima
    Shostakovich - symphony 4, 8, 10, Pretty much any of his String quartets
    Schnittke - Piano Quintet
    Gorecki - Symphony 3
    Rautavaara - Cantus Arcticus

    Elgar's Cello Concerto goes right to the heart of melancholy and despair.
    I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down.'- Bob Newhart

    And by I listened to all the songs and not one was Emo I was referring to the same link. Hence, we obviously have vastly different definitions of Emo.
