    Asleep - the Smiths

    or

    Eternal - Joy Division.

    I'm surprised no one else has mentioned a Morrissey or Ian Curtis song yet.

    Oh Christ. I'm listening to Last night in Brixton by Groove Armada and it makes me want to be 23 again

    Roads - Portishead.

    It's suicide inducing.
    Got to agree here. Excellent song too.

    Porcupine Tree - Heartattack in a Layby also. Listening to the end of that song through surround sound is amazing.

    Second one, just no.

    The other two, maybe, but not really. They're sad, but I wouldn't say they're really gloomy. They're both quite rousing and anthemic to be honest.

    But then you did say that years ago so I'm not really expecting a response.

    REM - Evetybody Hurts. Although 'end of the world' is in a similar vein to 1979.

    Nick Cave - Wild Rose, (to make a sexy choice)

    Lamb - Gabriel

    Half the stuff off Beth Gibbons solo albbum 'Out of Season' is very melancholic - cracking album too.

    Half the stuff being mentioned is hardly melancholic - whats with "Wild is the Wind" (excellent track by the way) ? Would strongly agree with the Sparklehorse mention though.

    Maybe I'm splitting hairs but a lot of the stuff that people are calling melancholic is in fact just plain dark or depressing. Isn't there a difference ?

    Medication By Spiritualized - a song about sitting around and doing nothing but heroin and realising you are wasting your life.

    Or indeed anything off that album as all of the songs are about being a smackhead at his lowest ebb.

    You can't beat Erik Satie.
    Best listened to whilst look at images of World War 1.
