These are all songs that I find rather depressing, although sometimes that's for personal reasons rather than the song itself...

Terminus - Ralph McTell
Crucify my Love - X Japan
1R - MUCC (I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but the tune is so sad! :( )
Regret - Malice Mizer
Die for you - Alice Cooper
Watashi wa Ame - SID
Gin no Parasol - Deadman
Para-noir - Marilyn Manson (in fact, pretty well anything by Marilyn Manson, XD)
I Was Wrong - The Sisters of Mercy
An Eye for the Main Chance - Rosetta Stone
Hell is for Children - Pat Benatar
Adagio in D minor - Tomaso Albinoni
Amphetamine Logic - The Sisters of Mercy
With - Psycho le Cemu (the lyrics... :( )
Genesis - Psycho le Cemu
The End - Bullet for my Valentine

Wildfire...I don't know who sings it...but it's about a horse that runs away and gets lost and dies and the girl calls for "Wildfire" her horse. It's from the 70's. Next is "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot. It's about freight ship that sinks in Lake Superior. A sad song that's true. I also like it because it's the one song where my home state of Wisconsin is mentioned. It's kind of hard to get that into a song! I don't know any Japanese music sorry!

Jock 13- Thats what I was going to say! It's true though. Just watched Zakuro live. **** thats what i call emotion.
The less 'heavy' Suicide Ali songs. Especially the second version of Aisubeki Shikeidai. The lyrics! The vocals!

About 4 Years ago, I met my wife in Australia. We lived traveled and even worked together for 5 months and had a great time....

But then the time had come to go back home again, I needed to go back to Holland while my wife (at that time GF) needed to go back to Japan. When I went home this song was very popular, and it was on the radio all the time. It always made me cry, and miss my gf even more

I'm here without you - Three doors Down.

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it wont take away my love
And when the last one falls
When it's all said and done
It gets hard but it wont take away my love

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me


We got married, and are living together right now :D
