Depressing and Somber Music

Post by Riu on Fri Jan 27, 2012 12:35 am

Rarity ~ xxxHOLiC Soundtrack by S.E.N.S Project
To be Continued ~ xxxHOLiC Soundtrack by S.E.N.S. Project
Lost Heart ~ xxxHOLiC Soundtrack by S.E.N.S. Project
Lost Memory ~ xxxHOLiC Soundtrack

Acceptance ~ Silent Hill: Shattered Memories ~ Sung by Mary Elizabeth Mcglynn
Always On My Mind ~ Silent Hill: Shattered Memories ~ Sung by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn

Chasing Pavements ~ Adele

Hear Our Prayer ~ Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle ~ Yuki Kajiura
City of Wind ~ Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle ~ Composed by Kajiura Yuki (I think), Sung by Youtube user XVeilX (Note: This is an English cover of the song Kaze No Machi He)

Epilogue Cadenza ~ Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Cadenza ~ Magical Trick Society
Reminiscence ~ Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Cadenza
The Steel Samurai ~ Gyatuken Saiban Meets Jazz Soul

Reminiscence - The Shadow on the Bridge ~ Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
Reminiscence - The DL-6 Incident
Reminiscence - The SL-9 Incident
Reminiscence - The Fire Carves Scars
(And the rest of the Reminiscence songs, but these are my favorites)

Exile Vilify ~ Portal 2 ~ The National
PotatOS Lament ~ Portal 2
Self-Esteem Fund ~ Portal (I honestly think this is the saddest, heaviest, most somber song I know)

Farewell Hyrule King ~ Legend of Zelda Wind Waker
Title Theme ~ Ocarina of Time

Folsense ~ Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (Alternatively, the Live version)
Memories of St. Mystere ~ Professor Layton and the Mysterious Village
The Mysterious Girl ~ Professor Layton and the Mysterious Village

For Good ~ Wicked (More sad in context, but still)
I'm Not That Girl ~ Wicked

God Help the Outcasts ~ Hunchback of Notre Dame

Gold and Oden ~ One Piece
Mother Sea ~ One Piece

Hide and Seek ~ Imogen Heap
Wait it Out ~ Imogen Heap

Once Upon a December ~ Anastasia

The One That Got Away ~ Katy Perry

Over the Rainbow ~ Judy Garland

Part of Your World ~ The Little Mermaid

Venus, the Bringer of Peace ~ Gustav Holst

(Some of the more somber songs from any Studio Ghibli film qualify, but they seem to have cracked down on copyrights on their songs on youtube, so it's difficult to find many of them)
The Sixth Station ~ Spirited Away ~ Joe Hisaishi
A Road to Somewhere from Spirited Away also definitely qualifies, but I cannot for the life of me find a recording on youtube. I highly recommend it however, as I think it's the most introspective, deep songs on the soundtrack. Try iTunes if you have time, they may have it.

Secrets ~ Hotel Dusk

When She Loved Me ~ Toy Story 2 (If you didn't cry at this part you are not human)

That's a fairly good overview of most of the sad songs I have.
There are more, of course, but I'm busy now.

It makes me sad I took the time to compile this list and I get ignored.

Part of Your World is depressing?

And what about On My Own? Or I Dreamed a Dream?

I'll give these a listen the next time I feel like being depressed.

Part of Your World evokes a sense of melancholy and longing for something one cannot have. It has a bright tone for much of the song, true, showing Ariel's wonder and amazement at the artifacts of the beautiful and foreign world she's enraptured with, but both the song ends on a quiet, resigned note; Ariel realizes that she is a mermaid, and not suited for or meant for the life that she so desperately wants to lead, that no matter how much she wishes for it, she will never be able to escape her oppressive, familiar environment. (This is, of course, not taking into account her later interaction with Ursula, who offers her a chance to achieve her dreams, but as that had not happened at this point, it is irrelevant to my point)

...
I put too much thought into this.

The same applies to a couple of other songs in there that could be possibly marked as happy.

Oh! So much music! I'm working on the list now.
I may even add to it if that's alright.
