    Majority of Modest Mouse output (at least the top-tier albums), "Moon & Antarctica" in particular. There are many sappy/sad/angsty bands out here, but it's one of the few that perfectly captures the feeling of loneliness and isolation. Not in the sense of "Imma so sad I need a girlfriend", but existential/cosmic loneliness - philosophical lyrics about humankind being a mere blip on Universe's radar and how individual people are doomed to be alone with their actual feelings, depressing and minimalistic instrumentals to boot. In other words, they don't sing about stuff that makes them feel empty inside as much as about unpleasant and complex concerns that will make you feel empty inside after letting it sink in. If you want to cry yourself to sleep for some reason or the other, then you might want to check the guys out.

    Ah, how could I forget this one c: From Russian cult art-rock band - sounds very cheesy on surface (if a bit haunting), but in actuality it's about already depressed person who got stuck in a "groundhog day loop" at New Year's Eve, living through the same day for half a year (and being the only person who's aware of it), and getting ready to kill himself, because he doesn't want to see same happy faces every day for the rest of his life. Because, you know, happy holidays and stuff!

    Neo-classical and ambient, but absolutely immense.. makes my eyes watery almost every time I listen to it.

    Kendrick is pretty good at this stuff, but this song definitely got the strongest reaction out of me.

    On a Real Good Day, by Robbie Fulks

    I'm not usually a fan of country, but this song is so sincere. It's the kind of song I'd probably use at the end of an episode of a TV show where a popular character is written out (not necessarily killed off though).
    "Though I'm not happy I can pretend, on a real good day." That lyric just really gets to me.
