Lonely, sad songs


What songs do you like to listen when your're lonely, sad or depressed?, I like walking down an empty street on a cold day listening to this, its sad but very moving, I feel like I'm in another world, away from the busy loud city and angry, violent, rude people.

Yes, I love that song. It was particularly powerful at the start of the film, when the camera was panning across the city showing the different sites, business people, bums etc - actually I think they just used bits from the film clip you posted.

I really like Pyramid Song by Radiohead

I have these on a playlist:







I think I added a Lhasa song in another post, but here's another. She was amazing.



Classic.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

I used to listen to J.E.W a lot back in my early high school days. This is probably the most sombre one I could think of.


No one will talk to me, they tend to go. Their faces say there's something I should know

this is my new joint for when its cold at night (and in my bed) and I choose to walk both bridges whilst deciding whether or not to jump

Solitude is happiness for one who is content,
who has heard the Dhamma and clearly sees.
Non-affliction is happiness in the world -
harmlessness towards all living beings.

Pretty much anything by Soap&Skin. "Wonder" is probably my favourite song for such an occasion as it's achingly beautiful and in such moments, that is what I want.

Agalloch - A Desolation Song

There it was.
The final destiny.
A sunrise that never came,
still the night lamp that never faded away.
Farewell was the word,
and the afterglow was the brave morning.
Rising and telling everyone
about the beauty of its prologue.

No other song captures the feeling of loneliness so well.
