Default Most depressing song/ most uplifting song

Well today I was skimming through the tons of mp3's I have and I came across probably the most depressing and the most uplifting song ( a song you have to sing to when sad).

Well the most depressing song I came across was R.E.M - Everybody hurts

A good cheer up song Bill withers - Lean on me (original ofcourse)


So what are your most depressing/uplifting songs in your collection?

Blink 182 - Adam's Song

Not super depressing, but still a good song.

Most uplifing song, *could* be Jimmy Eat World - A Praise Chorus

Both aren't extremly uplifing, or depressing, but still good.

That was my choice for most depressing too. Also that Gary Jules cover of the Tears for Fears song 'Mad World' from the movie Donnie Darko.

Uplifting? Hmmm....

Really depends on my mood and the circumstance.

Hole Hearted from Extreme got me jazzed the other day for some reason
as did Been Caught Stealing from Janes Addiction. So did Go Insane from
Lindsey Buckingham.

Sad stuff? A ton of Zepplin stuff can do that. No Quarter is pretty sad...

OMG.. you guys and your korn/ music tastes.
I admitt I used to like coal chamber, and the first 2 albums of korn, but now I rarely listen to either bands, not even devildriver(coal chamber's singer's new band, which is argueablely better than coal chamber).
