I've got so many, here's a bunch. Really soothing.

Others, to avoid spamming.

As artists, I'm a big fan of Progressive Trance artists like Shingo Nakamura and Dinka.
depressed moods are to be filled with fun and smiles so more to songs that make me more upset I watch Funny videos that lighten the moment for me.......

Wow, this forum has an awesome taste in music compared to what I've seen.
The depressing stuff I love:
Pink Floyd: Every song on The Wall.
Nirvana, petty much all of it.
Evanescence and Three Days Grace. (I love the album One-X) They are both almost always sad. Green Day has some good meaningful stuff too.
Simon O'Shine & Sergey Nevone - Apprehension

Sasha - Xpander

I listen to Death Grips when I'm disgusted with everything.
'Stray' from the anime Wolf's Rain. Almost gives me a spiritual feeling.

Maybe not quite an utterly depressed mood, but when a mixture of melancholy and nostalgia wash over me:

Placebo and Alcest are perfect to cry to. I listened a playlist of all Alcest and Placebo songs on repeat (it was about 15 songs long) more than 5 times in a row once during christmas break, and kept crying on and off.

Matthew Good Band- Apparitions
Jimmy Eat World- My Sundown
Jimmy Eat World- Clarity
Taking Back Sunday- Cute Without the E (Cut from the Team) (Live at Orensanz)
Smashing Pumpkins- 1979
Circa Survive- Birth of the Economic Hitman
Fall Out Boy- It's Not a Side Effect of the Cocaine. I Am Thinking it Must be Love

Also the entire "Loveless" album by My Bloody Valentine.
