Hmm, I guess All Dead, All Dead; My Melancholy Blues; Good Company can be; Lily of the Valley; Nevermore; Jealousy; Save Me;and maybe Drowse; Don't Try Suicide; or Dear Friends. Then again, whatever depresses you depends on who you are and what has made you feel that way. If I'm ever in a bad mood and need to be cheered up I listen to Don't Try So Hard and then The Show Must Go On. It lifts me up and is more constructive than staying in a low mood.

Hope this helped!

I think Mother love is a really sad song - the first time i heard it i just felt like crying. But songs like Dear friends, Love of my life, You take my breath away, My melancholy blues, Jealousy, Save me, Is this the world we created, Who wants to live forever, These are the days of our lives... are also very sad songs - that's what makes them so great. I also think songs on Made in Heaven album are beautifully sad - It's a beautiful day, Made in heaven, My life has been saved, Heaven for everyone, TMLWKY, A winter's tale... These songs are sad when you know the context in which they were made, but that's why they're all so intense




yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

i would suggest listening to innuendo or made in heaven and think of the context of the two albums... if that doesnt make you sad, dunno what would...

Mother Love
In my defence

Too Much Love Will Kill You

I actually stopped listening to it because it brings me down.

MY DISAGREEMENTS: Good Company, Don't Try Suicide...Save Me's not so much depressing as it is just a semi-sad tale. Lily of the Valley doesn't sound too depressing. I LOVE Drowse, so to me it's not at all depressing.

All Dead, All Dead
a good depressing song, but not TOO depressing

Save Me
it's depressing, but more hopeful that above

Teo Torriatte
depressing only when in the right mindset still more hopeful than either above

none of Queen's songs depress me, but some of the covers (recent pop tarts and soda commercials)and HR remixes are a little annoying
