* "Hey You" from The Wall. Pink Realized he's made a big mistake going behind his personal wall, yet because "the wall is too high as you can see," he can't break free. He is destined to decay into the neo-Nazi he becomes later, and knowing this is makes it positively heartbreaking.

** The entire damn album -- with the possible exceptions of "Welcome to the Machine" (which is merely at the band's typical level of moroseness) and "Have a Cigar" (which is even critical kinda comedic) -- but particularly "Shine On You Crazy Diamond".

*** While they were recording the ablum Music/SydBarrett showed up at the studio. Storm Thorgesorn wrote: "[...] We haven't seen him for six or seven years. I don't know to this day what made him turn up just then, looking terrible, his head shaven, eyes sunken, complexion jaundiced, his body fat, asking awkwardly if he could be of any help. But he was out of it. Roger cried, David cried. [...]"

* ''Endless River'', as the band's final album, has a subtext of melancholy and finality under the whole thing.

* "Bring The Boys Back Home" is tear jerker enough, but go to a concert on Roger Waters' The Wall tour and try not crying. This troper is extremely manly yet when he saw the show on May 29th, 2012, he bawled his eyes out. The images of war atrocities and people in Africa mixed with the words are just... oh god...

** And he was in such bad shape they didn't recognize them as first...* whimper*

** All of it can be traced to the band's own melancholy after Syd Barrett left. Barrett actually visited the studio as they were recording the song, apparently in really bad shape and offering to help in any way he could.

*** Syd had to leave the studio when Roger broke down in tears upon recognizing him.

** Even more so on the live version of Ummagumma where it sounds like a funeral march.

** Even more so on the live version of Ummagumma ''Ummagumma'' where it sounds like a funeral march.march. ** On the subject of ''Ummagumma'', there's "Careful with That Axe, Eugene". Yes, it is downright scary, but the song ends as quietly as it begun, which could either be Eugene or the witnesses having a mental breakdown realizing what he's done...or ''everyone'' on the scene is dead by the end of the song.
