The world's most depressing songs:
"Hurt" - Johnny Cash or Trent Reznor

"Everything Means Nothing To Me" - Elliott Smith

"How To Disappear Completely" - Radiohead

"Lonesome Tears" - Beck

"Tangled up in Blue"
by Robby Zimmerman

or
"Simple Twist of Fate"
by the same sad guy from the same sad album

or
"If You See Her, Say Hello"
by ditto

or
really anything from that Blood on the Tracks album.

Sincerely,
Ed "always sincere" Mahon

Ed "Fucking" Mahon!? How you been, brethren? Are you still in the Pacific Northwest?

The correct answer is Harry Chapin's 1974 hit "Cat's in the Cradle", as I defended here:
