When everything in your life sucks, it’s okay to listen to one or two depressing songs.
In life, it is okay to be sad but not sad all the time. If you are sad, take the opportunity and soak in the ambiance with some moody music.
It might not end your sadness but it might help boost it later.
Some of these sad songs were made by great musicians and you don’t have to be sad to listen to some.
We have you sorted out on some of the slowest and most depressing song’s list you will come across.
Palace by Cam
Her version is a cover of Sam Smith’s song but she originally wrote it.

Their love was a palace that she wishes they never built.
Self-Care by Mac Miller
His death is still fresh in the minds of music fans across the world.
This combined with the song makes it ten times sad. Sit down and relax quietly as you reflect on your life and all the sad things that have ever happened to you and call it self-care.
Alone Again (Naturally) by Gilbert O’Sullivan

How to Disappear Completely by Radiohead

It leaves a sedative effect on the mind of the listener and they made the music inspired from war and it goes straight into the heart like a sharp spear.
Everything Means Nothing To Me by Elliot Smith
The title of the song is what the song is all about.
Elliot composed the song to show how having everything can’t make you happy when you are sad and how all this means nothing.
You can have the best of the best but it means nothing. It wrecks the heart.
Heartbreak Warfare by John Mayer
Nothing leaves you sad and depressed like a heartbreak.
Love is an awesome feeling but the same feeling can make you feel like your heart is being torn into a million pieces one by one. The song puts you into feels.

Bad Religion by Frank Ocean
If you have ever been in love with someone who doesn’t feel the same, this song will make you cry.

No one knows when Lana got so dark and depressed with lyrics.
She is one of the artists who portrays what she feels in the song and the vocals too.
In the song, she contemplated dying by a gunshot die to her sadness.
Diary by Bread
This is one song you don’t play for emotional people, after an emotional event or in a party.
Unless you want to cause widespread sadness or depression wherever you are.
The sparse acoustic guitar strings and the violin strikes hard making it sorrowful.
All By Myself by Eric Carmen
This is one of the songs that the singer sounds so deeply saddened and you expect them to die the next minute.
The lyrics add on the sadness and his voice makes the song devoid of any cheer.

You won’t get the chance to enjoy the song as it quickly cuts to the chase taking you on a sad spree downwards.
You might enjoy it as your heart bleeds with depression and sadness.
Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition
If you take a look at the cover of the song, getting sad won’t be an option.
The song is about a girl not being able to love a paralyzed man whose legs are bent down.
He begs her not to take her love downtown as he is sure he is on his way to the grave.
Fix You by Coldplay
This is one of the singles that should have come with a full packet of MDMA crystals counterbalancing the onset of grief as it is assured when you listen to the song.
It’s as if all hope is lost and the lyrics are something most people can relate to.
