Weird topic? Yes...but I have a friend going through a difficult time and I'm going to make her a CD and need some suggestions. I'll mix in happy music too to cheer her up, but I want touching music that'll mean something to her...something to relate to.

Broken English - Marianne Faithfull
Berlin - Lou Reed

you can also add some the smiths music, like 'how soon is now', 'i know it's over', 'last night i dreamt that somebody loved me' and 'still ill'. they are beautifully sad and meaningful, if only you want to listen deeper.
i also guess block party, interpol and muse may not be a bad choice, either.
