Patron Saint of Bridge Burners - My Best Unforgotten Friend
Most nights I wish you were around.
Most nights I wonder if you’d be proud,
and I wonder if in the end I’d still be worth calling your friend.
And if you got to see what I turned out to be,
what would become of your vision of me?
And if you got to stay
well then what would you say,
my best unforgotten friend?
Would my life be as fucked up?
Would that change be just enough?
Would you interfere,
and would you steer me clear
of the drinking, depression and drugs?
And maybe things just wouldn’t change
maybe we’d stay just the same.
I wonder if you would be singing my songs,
and I wonder if I’d sing along.
So the story behind this is that last year my best friend killed himself and following that I fell into a vicious cycle of substance abuse that's really ruining my life at this point that I know he'd try to pull me out of if he was still around. Everything I am now contradicts everything I meant to him as a person when we used to hang out every day. I was gonna wait for the weekend to tell him I had gotten into grad school. Friday, maybe Saturday. He died on a Thursday morning. I know he'd be proud of me for getting in. I just don't know if he'd be proud if he knew how my poor choices were affecting my academic career.

So. Post the songs that just hammer rusty nails into the most lifeless part of your soul. And tell me why it hurts. I'm in the mood to hear some stories, UG. Let's share our sorrows and get some rad sad tunes at the same time.

this song accurately depicts the everlasting pain and agony that resides within the darkest corners of what remains of my black soul

edit: got it

anathema - lost control

few songs will get me curled up sobbing on the floor in the fetal position, but this is one serious tearjerker. as for why, i guess i can relate. lyrics are pretty straight forward

Life has betrayed me once again,
I accept some things will never change.
I've let your tiny minds magnify my agony,
and it's left me with a chemical dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling... how much longer till I hit the ground?
I can't tell you why I'm breaking down.
Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?
Have I really lost control?

I'm coming to an end,
I've realised what I could have been.
I can't sleep so I take a breath and hide behind my bravest mask,
I admit I've lost control.


the whole song is just ****ing brutally amazing, the vocals are perfect and the cello solo really makes you wanna just blow your brains out. its great

also worth mentioning:

katatonia - gone
when i was thinking this
was something permanent
u were already thinking
of going away

katatonia - saw you drown
in the water i saw u drown ;__;

edit2: oh **** yes

warning - bridges

In the darkness I unravel
new truths I have suffered for so long to embrace.
They will change me from here on.
But I can't share it with anyone.
I wish you were with me tonight.

When I am not alone, I sever silent moments;
building bridges with meaningless words
and only feel the distance further.
Remember being happy in our silence;
I wish that you were with me tonight.

I don't need a reason, there's nothing to explain.
I can't reproach your leaving to justify my pain.
But can I really understand?
I wish you were with me tonight.

I read over all you wrote me.
The words mean so much more these days.
They echo in my soul.
They sting me like a bug.
Can someone feel too much?
I wish you were here with me tonight.


fucking beautiful \m/

I don't think any song really ****s me up. I can get really into songs and they bring back memories sometimes, but nothing really crazy. Whenever I listen to Sometimes by MBV I go in some sort of trance.

^^It's Crystal Meth Blues for me.
^Check out 40 Watt Sun if you like Warning. It was always Soil's Song that got to me.

As for other artists,

Matt Elliott - A Waste Of Blood
And the craters remain from the last time you came
And seemingly our only crime
Was wrong place wrong time
And that's why we died
Decisions were made by some corporate ingrades
Put a price on all of our lives
Happens all the time
And that's why we died
that's why we died


William Bonney - Leather Empire
So fill your lungs with emotion
You’re just a kid and you’re broken
Screaming that everything’s unfair
You search for things left in last year
Watch as your life begins to fade
You will grow up pretending you’re are not afraid
(That’s not enough.)
As your skin grows hard and your heart turns numb
You realize the man that you have become
As your skin grows hard and your heart turns numb
You realize the man that you have become
Now you’re nothing!
Now you’re nothing!
Searching for friends and the love that you’re losing
Searching for something to keep you from moving
Searching for friends and the love that you’re losing
Searching for something to keep you from moving backwards
Backwards…


Have A Nice Life - Bloodhail
I feel the top of the roof come off
Kill everybody in there
And I'm watching all the stars burn out, trying to pretend that I care.
But I didn't, no-one ever does, and I would, no-one ever will
Can't you see it's all flown out of my hands and our clothes are all too often ripped and our teeth are all too often gnashed and it lasts as long as it possibly can but I just don't accept this. I just don't accept this at all. Faces sweaty, arms and legs, what a glorious set of stairs we make. We kill everyone with arrowheads, arrowheads, arrowheads. Thank god that's over.

Rolo Tomassi - Cosmology
Mostly for the ending

Radiohead - Fitter Happier
Easily the best song they ever recorded, and one of the most upsetting songs I've ever heard. I also love HTDC. Lyrics under the cut
"Fitter Happier"

more productive
comfortable
not drinking too much
regular exercise at the gym (3 days a week)
getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries
at ease
eating well (no more microwave dinners and saturated fats)
a patient better driver
a safer car (baby smiling in back seat)
sleeping well (no bad dreams)
no paranoia
careful to all animals (never washing spiders down the plughole)
keep in contact with old friends (enjoy a drink now and then)
will frequently check credit at (moral) bank (hole in wall)
favours for favours
fond but not in love
charity standing orders
on sundays ring road supermarket
(no killing moths or putting boiling water on the ants)
car wash (also on sundays)
no longer afraid of the dark
or midday shadows
nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate
nothing so childish
at a better pace
slower and more calculated
no chance of escape
now self-employed
concerned (but powerless)
an empowered and informed member of society (pragmatism not idealism)
will not cry in public
less chance of illness
tires that grip in the wet (shot of baby strapped in back seat)
a good memory
still cries at a good film
still kisses with saliva
no longer empty and frantic
like a cat
tied to a stick
that's driven into
frozen winter shit (the ability to laugh at weakness)
calm
fitter, healthier and more productive
a pig
in a cage
on antibiotics

Deadhead.

Dunno why, but this song really gets to me. Its impassioned and full of sincere emotion, almost forces you to be empathetic. Especially the acoustic version:



Not really a deathcore fan but this one just hits me right in the chest. At this point specifically (3:12, dat piano, dat drop):



And this song I cant even describe really.

Pink Floyd - Jugband Blues

Syd Barrett singing about his increasing schizhophrenia. He basically knows he's going insane but keeps writing songs.
The line "and I'm wondering who could be writing this song..." is just heartbreaking.

And so is the fact that this song is placed as the last song on A Saucerful of Secrets, practically making it the last goodbye of Syd in Pink Floyd as he's not contributing to anything later nor anything else on that album. Syd Barrett is one of my favourite songwriters and singers so it's kind of heartbreaking to see/read about him.

jugband blues has always been my favorite pink floyd song, but i always thought of it as a happy song then again i always thought the lyrics were about psychadelia rather than schizophrenia

i dont think it is. I think it is about his illness. and so is Dark Globe I think.

dark globe is another fantastic song.

I've made a "cover" of Dark Globe that I'm putting on my solo album that I'm recording atm.
I'm even gonna sample in the start of Dark Globe before pitching and fading it away before my own song starts.

I'm undone with this song simply because of how innocent and pure its intention is. It was written for the writer's grandson. My grandmother is someone I hold very closely to my heart, but I know she hasn't got long left. This song really makes me think of her.

Portugal. The Man - Sleep Forever


...


As the world revolves the sun
I hope the light that I become can
Sleep for once
I will leave it like you do
I won't lead it like you do
I won't leave it like they do
I don't need him like they do

I just want to sleep forever
Never see tomorrow
Or lead or follow
I don't want to work forever
Know what I know
Or beg or borrow

Just like our mothers
Who gave us our homes
We'll be just like our fathers
And go out on their own
'Cause we are the colors
Of all that you see
We'll be just like our brothers
And take to the streets
Take to the streets

I just want to sleep forever
Never see tomorrow
Lead or follow

...


It may not be the pinnacle of the written word or something really profound but I don't know man, this one just cuts deep for some reason. There are also a few songs by Tomaž Pengov that can break me but there's no way I'm translating those, especially since the guy was a fucking master of our language as far as I'm concerned.

EDIT:

Oh, actually some Bob Dylan songs tend to hit me hard but I won't bore you with my 1st world problems related to them.

EDIT v2.0:

I made the mistake of listening to the song when my day so far has been great. I need a good dose of Free-Bird-Guitar-Solo now.

one of the best songs ever written imo.

the delivery of the lyrics in the chorus is just murdering. how his voice just breaks.
so highly ironic and clever to sing your heart out and sound like you want to die while the song is called Perfect Day. love it.

Song in swedish but this song really ****ed me up for the longest time last year.

Broke up with my girlfriend/long-distance love of my life after 3 years of murder.

visited her and everything turned to shit as it always had done before with her. This song by this artist had just been released, an artist we met at a party for 3 years ago.

the song's title in english would be "it's never going to be over for me" roughly and that chorus + the words in the second verse "a boy from the past is back again" just really really broke my heart for the longest time.

we sang that song the entire night the last time we saw each other as we thought that it was going to be us again after not seeing each other for quite some time.

We were all together in the pouring rain.
Solvents being passed around to dull the pain.
The air was choked with the dismal smell.
The reek of sadness and despair.
Minds ****ed up beyond repair.

She said she just turned six.
She's got some good jokes for a kid.
She's working hard to avoid a woman bleeding from her teeth.
Her life goes on despite the fact her mom sleeps ****ed up on the cement.

She flashed a look, an image burnt into my mind.
I know that sinking feeling all too ****ing well.
Shame, frustration setting in.
Confusion that eats us inside out.
“I don't know what's wrong with me.
I don't know why she can't wake up.”
Her life goes on despite the fact.
Her mom lays ****ed up on the cement.
It's an ugly ****ing world



This doesn't really remind me of anything personally, it just conjures up quite a vividly depressing image.

Quote by MinterMan22

Yep, this.

There aren't really specific songs that can pull my heartstrings for direct reasons, but some I relate to different memories or times of my life. Jack's Mannequin's Everything in Transit brings out a lot of different emotions for me depending on which song and what it makes me think of or remember. Same with Brand New for pretty much the same reason, but Brand New puts me in a better mood, strangely.

Edit: Tears in Heaven is a pretty heavy song. Another that I heard this summer and instantly thought was pretty emotionally moving was Personal by Stars
