don't know if this fits into melancholy, maybe bordering on sad.. found it on a blog I frequent, I wonder if the writer is on this forum.

the whole of dummy by portishead. glory box is like the best song ever written. don't even bother with the later stuff

some other varied shit:

air france - collapsing at your door

the black ghosts - some way through this (the plastician and skream rmx aint half bad either)

kosheen - guilty (plastician remix)

some metal from days gone by:

agalloch - the first and second song of the mantle (cant remember wat they were called)

ulver - the whole of nattens madrigal and perdition city

theres loads more shit but this is what i can think of now.

Eight Legs-These Grey Days

from Dior Homme fall 2006 fashion show, the runway version is much better than the single (and more melancholy too)

Pretty much every song by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is dark, melancholy, and moody, but the song "There is a Town" off the Nocturama CD makes me want to turn off the lights, lie on the floor, and take painkillers.

type "[utube]insert the code after 'watch?v='[/utube]"

Anyway i sometimes agree with you about nick cave, but sometimes i find his goth-romance-angst extremely annoying.

He should do his upbeat songs (breathless, opium tea) more often, because they're often as good as his melancholic ones.
