Depressing Music
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.

thanks.

Belle & Sebastian!!! for the happy music

Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, David Gray, Damien Rice, Elliott Smith, Jeff Buckley, Joseph Arthur, Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, for the depressing part....you may check out some lyrics and then decide what song fits best...

Billie Holliday is the ultimate depressed music. pretty much anything by her is good for someone feeling down.

I also agree with whoever it was the mentioned Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley, specifically Go or Go Ahead by Rufus and Jeff Buckley's version of Lilac Wine....they're so good.

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.

good luck for your friend, shugga!
