    The Cure — "Cold" :(

    But be warned: You really shouldn't listen to it when you are in a bad mood. Trust me.

    Immortal Technique- "Dance With the Devil"
    Sufjan Stevens- "John Wayne Gacey Jr."
    Johnny Cash- "Hurt"

    Definitely no contest, the Man in Black makes moody sad music.

    "Shades of Gray" - The Monkees
    Just about anything from the Final Cut album - Pink Floyd (much more downbeat than even The Wall)
    "The Loneliest Person" - The Pretty Things (Most depressing song ever? At least Pink Floyd's rock opera ended on an upbeat note)
    "Buckets of Rain" - Bob Dylan
    "Dreaming Again" - Jim Croce
    "Downbound Train" - Bruce Springsteen
    "It Makes No Difference" - The Band
    "Diary" - Bread
    "Epitaph" - Judas Priest
    "Soon I Will Be Gone" - Free
    "You Can Never Go Home" - The Moody Blues
    "The Eyes of a Child" - Ken Hensley (Still though, unquestionably one of the best songs of 1975)
    "When a Blind Man Cries" - Deep Purple
    "Don't Let It Bring You Down" - Neil Young (Sorry Neil, but this tune does)
    "Broken Heart" - Skip Spence (This must have been where the Police got the lyrical inspiration for "King of Pain")
    "The Great Indifference of Heaven" - Warren Zevon
