Added DiffLines:

* The B-sides "Adonais" and especially "It Used To Be Me" from the ''Wild Mood Swings'' era are definitely this.

Added DiffLines:

** Robert Smith performed a new arrangement of the song with Quartet Voluté for ''Dead Good'', a documentary about death. The string quartet arrangement makes it feel sadder, and in the film's official trailer, it's accompanied of images of photos of the departed as displayed at funerals.


** "Prayers For Rain" bears a special mention. Not only is the tune really sad but it's also full of cheery verses such as "You shatter me your grip on me a hold on me
So dull it kills. You stifle me. Infectious sense of Hopelessness and prayers for rain.

Added DiffLines:

** And in a similar vein, "This Twilight Garden."


* "Apart" from Wish is quite depressing, it's about a failed relationship where two ex lovers long for each other and wondering how they became so distant. "He waits to hear her say, "Forget" But she just hangs her head in pain and prays to hear him say, "No more, I'll never leave again" and the chorus are standouts,

"How did we get this far apart?
We used to be so close together
How did we get this far apart?
I thought this love would last forever"

* Pretty much all of the songs on ''Music/{{Disintegration}}'' qualify. Even the less well known ones, like ''Pirate Ships'' and ''Homesick,'' which are agonisingly beautiful.

** Especially if you know what it's about: The late Billy [=MacKenzie=] of Music/TheAssociates, a friend of Robert Smith's, who committed suicide in 1997. In the song, Smith laments not having spent more time with his friend.

* "Pictures of You" also counts, especially when a SofterAndSlowerCover was used in a famous anti-speeding commercial in Australia.

* For some, "The End of the World" is especially potent, what with the "just a boy and a girl" language and Robert Smith's emotional delivery.

* And ''There Is No If''. If you're happy when you hear it, it makes you sombre and reflective. If you're sad... Well God help you. "Hysterical Grief" doesn't even cut it.
* For a relatively upbeat song, ''Doing The Unstuck'' is quite a depressing song about losing hope.
* "A Forest" from ''Music/SeventeenSeconds''. Those final lines "the girl is never there. It's always the same. I run towards nothing, again, and again, and again, and again...." are perhaps the saddest conclusion ever. Especially when comparing it to everything that went wrong in your own life.
