Pink Floyd are quite depressing, but I think this song by Morrissey best captures the petty desolation of depression in a succinct way which I can most relate to:


Trudging slowly over wet sand
Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
This is the coastal town
That they forgot to close down
Armageddon - come Armageddon!
Come, Armageddon! Come!

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Hide on the promenade
Etch a postcard :
"How I Dearly Wish I Was Not Here"
In the seaside town
...that they forgot to bomb
Come, Come, Come - nuclear bomb

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Trudging back over pebbles and sand
And a strange dust lands on your hands
(And on your face...)
(On your face ...)
(On your face ...)
(On your face ...)

Everyday is like Sunday
"Win Yourself A Cheap Tray"
Share some greased tea with me
Everyday is silent and grey

If Pink Floyd is depressing then I'm a woman! LOL!! j/k I guess it's all how you listen to it and your perception of it. I've never gotten depressed by Floyd before, but I've had some real dark times come upon me and I intentionally got loaded and slapped on some Sabbath.

wow, I can't imagine listening to pink floyd and not getting depressed. I avoid "The Wall" totally becuase I can't handle it. Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" has very depressing lyrics, but the tune is so cool I don't care.:)

the worst thing that happened to me was my Dad left the ministry and our family for crazy bitch, I had to leave the town and people I loved, moved to wholly different place, without a dad basically, sheltered and naive. Pink Floyd saved me from eternal depression. Their music was my first drug and they are still one of my favorite bands 20 years later. I guess for the same reason that this thread helps you. Misery loves company, that is an old saying. Not to mention that they are musical geniouses, especially Roger Waters, lyrical genious as well - funny enough, it was the bassist for the Violent Femmes that finally inspired me to pick up musical instruments and learn as many and much as I can for the rest of my life. I love the Floyd forever.

Llama, let me know how your aya trip goes. I'll be interested to hear about it.

It's easy to forget that everyone's in the same boat. Everyone has their pain. Everyone is going through something. It's good to know you're not the only one...

My man is going to have to eventually have his arm amputated. He hit his elbow at work and damaged his "funny bone" and was refused medical treatment, which eventually led to him putting an angle grinder into his leg and then they fired him.
Had they just given him a workers comp case he would have healed in a few weeks and the grinder incident would NOT have happened.
He couldnt find a personal injury attorney to take his case so the place gets off Scott free and hes permanently disabled
