    Hobart Paving – St Etienne

    St Swithuns Day – Billy Bragg

    A Pair of Brown Eyes – Pogues

    Where do you go to my lovely – Peter Sarstedt

    – I now have headphones on, a glass and half a bottle of Jim Beam. Thanks STW 🙁

    There’s something about this song that does it for me

    Marvin, always Marvin

    Ska/Rocksteady can mix the cheeriest tunes with the most depressing lyrics

    Der Leiermann by Schubert played on guitar by Charlie James will trump anything you can mention imo.

    Most of Pavements Slanted and Enchanted has a beautiful melancholy. Absolutely resonates far too often.

    Leonard Cohen should do the trick.

    He’s an amateur. If you want the real stuff, go for Nick Cave. Like Cohen but a better voice and less cheerful.

    Pretty much anything from Jason Molina

    Or a spot of Codeine?

    Just been listening to Der Leiermann from Schubert’s Winterreisse. The definition of melancholy.

    … Barber’s Adagio for Strings

    Still very sad but try to keep your hands below shoulder hight when it drops

    Hobart Paving – St Etienne

    One of my top melancholy picks too.

    Here’s another track that’s always given me the feels…

    And you’d have to be very brave to cover Mazzy Star’s Fade Into You, but J Mascis more than does it justice. More melancholy than the original?

    And the whole of Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks.

    Anything by Phoebe Bridgers, who is awesome by the way, but Funeral and Killer would be a good start…

    ‘you never knew me’ by Magazine.

    It’s probably one of my favourite songs of all time
    That tempo…

    Enough of the sad stuff have a laugh.

    FFS that’s not even related to funny, more than anything else anyone had posted you are trying to drive people to suicide with that humourless shit!

    And back to some proper music

    Richard Thompson – How will I be simple again?; Devonside; Down where the Drunkards Roll; Sisters; Calvary cross and quite a lot more …

    Leonard Cohen – Last Year’s man, Avalanche, in fact the whole of “Songs of Love and Hate” should do it.

    Fairport Convention – Who know where the Time goes

    Sandy Denny – Solo

    Joni Mitchell – Amelia

    Traditional – Banks of the Nile; Four Loom Weaver etc etc etc.

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds- Mercy Seat and many more …..

    Yes, I am a ‘Certain age’.

    When you ‘get’ Leonard, you won’t feel suicidal.

    I posted that earlier and do love it.

    I also however love this version too

    Takes a while to get going, but this has an lovely kind of gentle melancholia.

    Interesting to contrast with the Kid Loco remix, which makes the same tune feel a bit brighter and more hopeful.

    New tune from The Wonder Stuffs Miles Hunt is a great song imo.

    When the author heard Cash’s version of Hurt he said it was like losing your girlfriend. He didn’t own the song any more. One of my absolute favourite tracks.

    Very powerful and moving. Even more so hearing it with the video as well.
