Anime Music to Listen to When Depressed


I feel like I should at least let folks know I’ve managed to not accidentally drown myself in alcohol yet (actually, for the record, the last time I drank was over two weeks ago anyway). I am still pretty massively down in the dumps, though, so I thought I’d just compile a list of good anime music to listen to when you’re feeling completely bummed out.

The List

  • Aya – OVER NIGHT (Le Chevalier D’Eon ED)
  • dream – My Will (Inu Yasha OP 1)
  • Yui Horie – Vanilla Salt (Toradora! OP 1) (no, I don’t know why I can stand this when I’m sad, but it makes me feel a little better)
  • Lia – Toki wo Kizamu Uta (Clannad~After Story OP)
  • Lia – Tori no Uta (AIR OP)
  • Mike Wyzgowski – Nothing Can Be Explained (Bleach insert song)
  • Naomi Kaitani – Tooi Kono Machi de (CardCaptor Sakura 1st Movie ED)
  • Nightmare – Lost in Blue (Mouryou no Hako OP)
  • Mamiko Noto – Ichinuke (Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae ED)
  • Mamiko Noto – Karinui (Jigoku Shoujo ED)
  • Shinkichi Mitsumune – Shi no Aphrodite, Aphrodite Scat, Shi no Aphrodite: Reminiscence of Death (Revolutionary Girl Utena BGM’s; all these tend to associated with Juri, if I’m not mistaken, and are different versions of the same song)
  • Shinkichi Mitsumune – Fruit of Sin (Rev Girl Utena BGM)
  • SNoW – NightmaRe (Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori OP)
  • Kanon Wakeshima – Suno no Oshiro (Vampire Knight Guilty ED)
  • Weiβ kreuz – Epitaph (Weiβ kreuz soundtrack song) (Weiβ kreuz is also the name for the recording group which consisted of the four voice actors for the main characters in the show)
  • Weiβ kreuz – Last in My Winds, One More Angel, Stone Roses (Weiβ kreuz Gluhen ED), The Road, Shadows and Lights, Shindemo Ii (Weiβ kreuz is actually a pretty good source for this kind of music since the whole show was basically one big angstfest)
  • Marina Inoue – Houseki (Petit Cossette ED)
  • Yuuko Sasaki – Pure Snow (better known as a J-pop track, was the ED for some forgettable harem-type show)
  • Rio Natsuki – Namida-iro no sora ni wa… (Battle Athletes Victory insert song)

The J-Pop List

  • Ayumi Hamasaki – Endless Sorrow
  • Ayumi Hamasaki – Powder Snow (acoustic)
  • Ayumi Hamasaki – Still Alone
  • Dir en Grey – Zakuro
  • Dragon Ash – Melancholy
  • The Kinki Kids – To Heart

I used to have some Hysteric Blue that was good for when I felt sad, but for some reason I can’t find it on my computer… and I deleted all my Mr. Children stuff because he’s too fucking sappy.

Thanks for the condolences on the last post. I’m still pretty down about the whole thing, but I’m feeling better than I was last week, so there’s some improvement. Sorry for clogging up the internets with the scourge of the aniblogosphere, a.k.a. personal stuff.

P.S. – Okay, I lied, I started drinking with a friend, but they left and I’m still tipsy, who wants to be my AIM buddy? (not AiM buddy!) (she has a hot voice)

    Vanilla Salt? Really?

    I’m not sure what I’d listen to since I never get depressed or listen to music, but a lot of people seem to find that 5 cm/second song emotional.

  2. I thought the kind of music to listen to when depressed should be more uplifting fare. Clannad ~AS~ probably doesn’t fit that bill so much.

    My list would include stuff from Red Garden, ARIA (because it makes me feel good) and Hidamari Sketch.

    Mikuni Shimakowa songs are good to listen when depressed especially Sore Ga Ai Deshou.. right?
    Some eufonius songs are good too.
    Also YUI songs like Life. It’s very awesome.

  4. I don’t really get depressed after I passed 27, but before that I listened to a lot of metal, and Steely Dan.

    Now I listen to Macross OSTs. Those are huge picker uppers.

    Sometimes I want to get into a melancholy mood, and the Honey and Clover songs are just the trick.

    JAM Project does the thing for me. Little Wing, though unrepresentive of much of their music, is a great uplifting song.
