Adam's Song & Stay Together For the Kids by Blink 182
Lillian & Weatherman by Plus 44
Prevent This Tragedy & Radio by Alkaline Trio
Sorrow by Boxcar Racer
Darkness by Disturbed
The Unforgiven 2 by Metallica
The Approaching Curve by Rise Against
Lonely Day by System of a Down
Dry Lake Bed by Years Around the Sun

Ok, this is more than ten, but, I think it's more emotion based than depressing. Also, note the difference in times between these lists.

Though I have an extensive music library containing a lot of generally considered to be depressive music, I find most of the songs in there inspiring therefore constructively energizing instead. However some songs leave me feeling sad and down after listening even though I may find them beautifully composed and constructed... This list is, genre wise, and thus the reason WHY I find them depressive, pretty incohesive, but still, here it is:

In no particular order:

Famous Blue Raincoat - Leonard Cohen
Emma (the Hot Chocolate song) - The Sisters of Mercy
The Eternal - Joy Division
Severance - Dead Can Dance (the Bauhaus version is probably even more depressing)
Joey - Bob Dylan
Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush
Suicide is Painless (the MASH theme)
Purity - The God Machine
Stoned Obituary (part 2) - The Legendary Pink Dots
Jeanny - Falco ( yep that song really gets me down....)

okay....now you've gone and caused me to resort to drastic measures. Be prepared to be really sad....or nauseous

"Past the Point of Rescue" by Hal Ketcham 

"He Stopped Loving Her Today" By George Jones 

and for the most dysphoric of all, "All These Years" by Sawyer Brown
http://www.cmt.com/artists/az/sawyer_brown/videos.jhtml (NOTE this is a full-length video...you have to run it in IE...select the song from the drop-down list)

 (TEEHEE!)...And I'm just getting started! Sorry for the genre....I'll bet this is not your thing...and unless I'm in a certain mood...it's not mine either.

ok then. gawed there are to many depressing songd out there.. let me look threw my lists...

ok these are not in order im to lazy to put them in order from sadest to most depressing..

sally's pigions by cyndi lauper. even those its sorta kinda upbeat its sad. its about her loosing a friend from child hood to an illigal abortion

hate me today by blue october about his drug/alcohol addiction and how it hurt those around him

your call by secondhand seranade about loveing some one so much it hurts

little sister by jewl about her sisters drug addiction

pieces of you by jewel about how the world is and all the hate

Adrain by jewel proubley the sadest on on here so far-- about a little boy who got into an accident and had very seriouse brain damage and how one little girl stayed by him

concrete angels by martina mcbride ( i cry every time i hear this song, its that bad (the lyrics are sad, the songs not bad lol) its about a little girl whos mother is abuseive and the little girl dies in the end because of her mom

what its like by everlast this song has stuck with me from the time i first heard it. it talks about being quick to judge people when your not in their shoes and dont know what their going through

whiskey lullaby by brad paisly featuring  alison krauss- about how a couple breaks up and they drink themselves to suicide over one another i love this song the chorus is beautiful.

its not over by secondhand seranade about a break up and still wanting the person

For me....
I kind of go With George Jones myself, for depressing songs..  He stopped loving her today is in fact the most depressing song I've heard... 

 My favorite for stirring emotion actually hails from this site:
                            http://forum.bandamp.com/Audio_Review/1257.html

         I think this one is amazing...  It's a story of his life... His turmoil...  His pain......  Awesome song.....

  The fact that the metaphor and life crash together in this song makes it so powerful.....  Exceptional writing...

       And very emotional.....  Got major love for ya Buzz....
