Most depressing song

I was listening to the new Dublin radio station Christmas FM today when they played the most depressing song I have ever heard, The Christmas Shoes. A song about a little boy trying to buy new shoes for his mother on Christmas Eve because she is dying and he wants her to look pretty when she meets Jesus that evening. It's a morose piece of Christmas rubbish so I couldn't help but google it.

This led me to what had to be the funniest book title I've ever heard:
"I Hate Myself and Want to Die: The 52 Most Depressing Songs You've Ever Heard" which lists The Christmas Shoes as the most depressing song in modern recorded music history. Brilliant!
