Most depressing songs of the 80s (#31-40)



Dawson Yeah, I skipped a day in the list. How depressing. (Though less depressing than using a photo of Dawson's Creek on an 80s blog. Hey, somebody help me out with sad photos!)

The list of the 50 most depressing songs of the 80s continues today. (Repeat after me: Open mouth, insert Prozac, swallow.)

My personal favorite from today's list? No surprise to long-time fans here -- it's "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" by Asia. Though in all fairness, I'm a sobbing heap of melting flesh if you play any tune on today's list. How appropriate that it's been non-stop rain all morning here in Florida.

Click here to view Nos. 41-50. And as always, fire away with the feedback.


40. Hard to Say I'm Sorry (Chicago): "Even lovers need a holiday, far away from each other."

39. Last Time Forever (Squeeze):" It all went wrong when I grew jealous."

38. Missing You (John Waite): "There's a heart that's breaking down this long distance line tonight."

37. Save a Prayer (Duran Duran): "You don't have to dream it all, just live a day."

36. The Smile Has Left Your Eyes
(Asia): "It's over now. It's not my fault. See how this feels for you."

35. Cigarette (Smithereens): "Just like this cigarette, our time is running down."

34. Mandolin Rain (Bruce Hornsby): "You don't know what you got till you lose it all again."

33. Just Once (James Ingram): "Seems we're always blowing whatever we got going."

32. Give Me It
(The Cure): "Get away from me. Leave me alone. Like the pig on the stairs, hanging
in a groovy purple shirt."

31. Drive (The Cars): "You can't go on, thinkin' nothings wrong."

Sneak peak at tomorrow's list:
If you think Mandolin Rain is sad, try the other kinds of rain.
