If I'm feeling depressed and feel like nothing will ever go right again I listen to Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out :) it just helps me think that good things will eventually come <3

Your destiny may keep you warm <3

Pixies - Where Is My Mind?
That song gets me rather emotional at times. I revisit the Pixies several times during the year, they still impress me to this day.

Marcy Playground- Wave Motion Gun, is a good track to follow that as a pick me up.

When I'm REALLY depressed, I usually go to these albums (yes, I'm an album person):

John Lennon - Walls & Bridges (or more specifically alternate versions of the tracks - cursed mid-70s production!) - sometimes Plastic Ono Band also works, but it depends on what sort of depressed I am
Leonard Cohen - Songs of Love & Hate (and most of Ten New Songs)
Bob Dylan - Blood On The Tracks, about 1/2 of Time Out Of Mind as well
Nirvana - In Utero
Beck - Sea Change
and when I REALLY want to twist the knife and I'm in a particularly depressive mood: Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (though this album also works exceedingly well in a good mood)
About 1/2 of R.E.M.'s Automatic For The People
Radiohead - Kid A
The Who - Quadrophenia

If I'm lovesick depressed, I'd also toss in:
Derek & The Dominoes - Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs

Other individual tracks that work well:
U2 - So Cruel
Bob Dylan - Most Of The Time
Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever
Paul McCartney - Back On My Feet
Paul Simon - Graceland

This is off the top of my head (should I be concerned so much of this is off the top of my head??)

Thank you Some Russian Guy beautiful songs ...

I'll listen & cry bloody tears while piercing my veins
Arms spread wide
cry to the heavens then lower my head in shame
My life is a disaster
yet I alone am to blame ...

Anything by Bruce Springsteen, but particularly The Promised Land. That second verse kills me everytime.
On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert
I pick up my money and head back into town
Driving cross the Waynesboro county line
I got the radio on and I'm just killing time
Working all day in my daddy's garage
Driving all night chasing some mirage
Pretty soon little girl I'm gonna take charge

The dogs on Main Street howl
'cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands
Mister I ain't a boy, no I'm a man
And I believe in a promised land

I've done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning and go to work each day
But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode
Explode and tear this whole town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Find somebody itching for something to start


There's a dark cloud rising from the desert floor
I packed my bags and I'm heading straight into the storm
Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
That ain't got the faith to stand its ground
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted

I believe in a promised land...
