** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZN3oUUrokg The live version of "Slip Away"]] is particularly heartbreaking, considering it opens with a clip from ''TheUncleFloydShow'', the song's subject matter, which is - in a weird way - a mediation on death.

** "Subterraneans" and "Warszawa" only get even more tear-jerking when you read about the real-life conditions that inspired them (respectively, the plights of East Berlin and Warsaw at the time of the album's recording). As is usual for these things, ThatOtherWiki has more details.

* Many songs from ''Hours...'', especially this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR86Vs7RJsU&feature=player_embedded live version of "Seven."]]
** "Thursday's Child", particularly the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S227FFNwl8&p=25302E0CD684CDBC video]], is another sad song -- but is, at least, hopeful.

* Here's Bowie's take on Creator/BertoltBrecht's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPcUTlHcp-Y The Drowned Girl]]" -- a cruelly detailed recounting of a demise.

** There's a [[http://www.quickstopentertainment.com/2008/07/24/masters-of-song-fu-1-final-challenge-voting-begins/ Masters of Song Fu]] challenge that deals with reinterpreting this song, and both have an undertone of loneliness. From Jeff [=MacDougall=]'s take: "I'm high!/ Can you see me?/ I'm the blink in the night sky./ I'm not afraid./ Everything's clear./ Tell my wife no need for tears."

** In the original music video, as Bowie sings that line, his face shows genuine sadness, it looks almost as if he's about to start crying.

** And then there's the {{Bookends}} feeling of the entire album. The styles of each track go in reverse order of every style Bowie has done throughout his career, before finally ending with a song reminiscent of his ''[[Music/LowDavidBowieAlbum Low]]'' sound.
