  2. I have a few.

    The live version of “Never Be Mine” by Kate Bush is heartbreaking. Not available on YouTube on streaming though.

    This is another favourite.

  4. It reminds me of being young, of Geri leaving and just that wistful feeling of love being eternal.

     






  5. These are the ones that spring to mind, especially the last one, mainly down to this bit:

    I guess I just feel like
    Good things are gone
    And the weight of my worries
    Is too much to take on

  6. Not just the saddest, but one of the greatest too.

    Apollo 440/Billy MacKenzie: Pain in Any Language

  10. Somehow, I’ve always associated Julee Cruise with Chris Isaak, who’s also suitably depressing.
