Misery loves company, and sometimes sadness just broods other sadness. This is for you, fellow gluttons for punishment.

unicorns_and_vodka asked When you're feeling down what's the most depressing song you listen to make you feel even more depressed?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

It's like middle school all over again.

I Miss You, Blink-182.

For those really, really deep feels...

Fourth of July - Sufjan Stevens.

Well now I'm miserable too, thanks.

"Heaven knows I'm miserable now" by The Smiths. I like that the melody is extremely upbeat, but the lyrics are a total downer that I relate to immensely lol.

My favorite line is "two lovers entwined pass me by, and heaven knows I'm miserable now."

R.I.P. Chester.

Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park.

Ah, the rabbit hole of "I'm lonely, omg, more."

[rebelmouse-image 18354964 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hallelujah, the Rufus Wainwright version.

IMHO: one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces of music ever written.

[rebelmouse-image 18354965 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem.

Daddy issues FTW.

[rebelmouse-image 18354966 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cats in the cradle by Harry Chapin.

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

[rebelmouse-image 18354967 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hate Me- Blue October.

When I couldn't get a girl as a teen... oh, wait.

[rebelmouse-image 18354968 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

No Doubt - Don't Speak.

Tears. Every time.

[rebelmouse-image 18354969 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tears in Heaven is about Eric Clapton asking his 4-year-old son who died falling out a window if he would even recognize him in heaven since he died so young.

A day in the life of a Millennial.

[rebelmouse-image 18354970 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day.

Always a winner at karaoke.

[rebelmouse-image 18354972 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lullaby by Billy Joel. It's so sweet and a little sad sounding, and it's from a dad who loved his kid. My dad left and didn't love me, and now he's dead. So yeah, that song tears me up.

For those long, late-night walks.

[rebelmouse-image 18354973 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pretty much anything by Portishead.

When you feel like you don't belong there...

[rebelmouse-image 18354974 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Creep by Radiohead.

Adding this one again, because Mozart's untimely death is sad af. And no, Salieri didn't wite the Reqiuem. Mozart died after writing the Lacrymosa.

[rebelmouse-image 18354976 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not a song per se but Mozart's Requiem.

No, I'm not trying to be an edgy Redditor who thinks he's the hottest shit.

It just depresses me, especially the haunting vocals in the Lacrymosa part. The real sad part is that Mozart died so young, which makes me realize how, dunno, fitting fleeting life really is.

The more you know, the more you cry.

[rebelmouse-image 18354977 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Amazing by Blue October, some of his songs are good for this. If you don't know, the lead singer has bipolar disorder and sings a lot about his life and emotions, it can be beautiful and sometimes heart wrenching.


[rebelmouse-image 18354978 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My Immortal - Evanescence.

When you just want to recuse yourself from existence...

[rebelmouse-image 18354979 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris :(.

Pretty much anything sung by Stevie Nicks continues the cycle...

[rebelmouse-image 18354980 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Landslide - Fleetwood Mac.

Save this for your absolute last wit.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
