The Smiths - How Soon Is Now? comes to mind.

Indeed much of the songs by The Smiths and Morrissey seem to have SA or SA-like undercurrents running through them.

Ask by The Smiths is another that comes to mind that indeed seems more or less directly SA related.

The Smiths/Morrissey are good if you're feeling depressed :p

haha, i just heard the middle by Jimmy Eat World tonight for the first time in years and didn't get that it could be related to SA
someone here posted this song a while back
Jordan Pruitt-outside looking in
I think it's pretty accurate about SA.

My username is Little Willow because of a Paul McCartney song by the same name. Very beautiful and reminds me of SA. Check out the lyrics on my profile, or the song here:

That does sound like it could be about SA. I haven't heard that song in a while.
Jimmy Eat World, a lot of their songs seem to relate to SA, feeling alone, or depression. At least, to me, they do.

I like quite a few of the songs that have already been posted, also:
unwell by matchbox 20 is a good one
I totally forgot about that one. I remember hearing this on the radio and thinking "wow, this sounds eerily similar to what I'm going through".

All day
Staring at the ceiling
Makin' friends with shadows on my wall
All night
Hearing voices telling me
that I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something
Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
and I don't know why

Well I'm not crazy
I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay a while and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy
I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Me,
talking to myself in public
And dodging glances on the train
And I know
I know they've all been talkin' bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinkin
Somehow I've lost my mind


:um

I just realized that songs does sound a lot like it has to do with SA.
And to think I've got it on my ipod and I didn't even think to mention it.

Don't know if they were written about SA specifically, but these do it for me:

Nick Lowe - Cracking Up (
)
"everybody's all around me shaking hands and saying howdy"

Tom Petty - Finding Out (
)
I love the line: "I've had enough of all this hardcore loneliness... I don't think pain is so romantic"

Badfinger - Day After Day (
)

Weezer - In the Garage (
) or pretty much anything off the blue album...

Material Issue - Valerie Loves Me (
)
Listen to the lyrics

Hank Williams - Lost Highway (
)
