I'm talking about music that when you're feeling down will make you feel worse. I don't want uplifting or inspirational. Some of Chopin's more melancholic works can do it for me. I don't listen to country, but George Jones singing "It's a good day for the roses" is about as sad a song as you will find. Leonard Cohen's "Alexandra leaving" is another sad song. I have everything Davis and Coltrane recorded, so I'm looking for recommendations for the most beautiful but depressing music you've ever heard. I want to hear a violin, my favorite instrument, that will bring tears to your eyes. I know this is a strange request but some of the best music comes from dark places. Thanks
The 2 songs that come to mind are sad but not depressing. Both are based on true events. "Lorraine" by Lori McKenna" and "John Doe #24 by Mary Chapin Carpenter. It matters not how often I listen to these 2 songs, my heart will swell with sadness.
