One that comes to mind -

"Alone Again, Naturally" by Gilbert O'Sullivan

There's another one sitting in the shadowy recesses of my mind, teasing me. Maybe it will come to me later.

Re: One that comes to mind -

LOL!!!!! Consider it added!


"Isn't it Grand, Boys (to be bloody well dead?)"

SICK TUNE, THE. AKA and see "Sick, Sick" "Captain Car." English, Country Dance Tune (4/4 time). F Major/D Minor. Standard. AABB. The melody is from the Cittharn School (1597), while the lyrics are to be found in Ritson's Ancient Songs. Francis Child gives several versions of the poem under the title "Captain Care." The song tells of the massacre of a Lady and her household of 37 persons at the hands of that Captain Care, who set fire to her manor:
It befell at Martinmass when weather waxed cold,
Captain Care said to his men, "We must go take a holde."
Sick, sick and too, too sick, and sick and like to die,
The sickest night that ever I abode, God Lord have mercy on me!

Oooh! An English country dance tune I've never heard of, before! I must find a recording of this. I'm more familiar with the Playford dances. I'll have to look up the Child ballads, too. Thank you for posting this!


Ooh, Don't Fear the Reaper! That's a good one.

Also, "A Taste of Honey" is a Beatles tune, I believe.

I'm thinking "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," but I'm not sure it belongs on a "suicide" playlist. It's good, anyhow.

"Black" and "One" by Metallica.

(Can you tell I'm an 80's metalhead?)

The famous one is Gloomy Sunday - especially as sung by Billie Holiday.

Cut the last verse, which was hastily added when people started calling the 'that Hungarian suicide song' and claiming it was responsible for over a hundred deaths.

See the wikipedia entry for more details.

And you can hear it on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48cTUnUtzx4

Yep, this was the famous one that i was going to add, especially as i saw a program about it (or at least that talked about it) only this weekend. Scarily a fair number of urban legends about it aren't urban legends at all, but are genuinely documented occurances.

Another Brit? They discussed it on last week's QI, which was why it was fresh in my mind.

Heh, yup :) That's where i learnt about it!

"Who wants to live forever" - Queen
"Goodbye Cruel World" - Pink Floyd (or just The Wall album)
"In the air tonight" - Phil Collins
"Hello" - Evanescence
"Hold on" - Sarah McLachlan
"Uninvited" - Alannis Morrisette
"Unforgiven" - Metallica
"Lost" - Fatalis (shameless band plug... lol)

I'm sure I could go on... :-)

I so agree with the first one and the fourth, but Uninvited is a very dark sexy love song, not a suicide song!

Alas, it's about love that can never be consumated. :-) That eternal yearning for something you can never have, and therein lies madness... ;-)

Emotional suicide, and the list didn't specify whether we are talking about razors and warm bathtubs, or the silent infestation of emotional death.

I'm having WAY too much fun with words. Damn, I'm cheesy. LOL


"Losing my Religion", specifically the cover by Tori Amos.
thought that I heard you laughing.
thought that I heard you sing.
think I saw you try.

"Round Here" by Counting Crows.
round here we're carving out our names
round here we all look the same
round here we talk just like lions, but we sacrifice like lambs
round here she's slipping through my hands
