Here a song of a different type of some minor historical note. Upfront, I will say that I don't know Hungarian or Hungarian culture; I'm familiar only with Litsz and Zichy. This is the infamous Hungarian Suicide Song!
This is a melancholic song entitled Vége a világnak (The world is ending), written by Hungarian composer Rezső Seress back in 1933. Soon afterward, László Jávor wrote a poem that was set to music and translated as Sad Sunday. It was a despairing song, apparently motivated by 1930's pessimism and the rise of fascism in Hungary,
It was commonly entitled Gloomy Sunday in English and was by urban legend related to a number of suicides back in Hungary. Therefore, it was banned from radio play. Frankly, the song is a downer; the only evidence for it being banned was by BBC in the 1940's because it was deemed demoralizing to the war effort. Gloomy Sunday was covered by Billy Holliday back in 1941; later versions were done by Mel Tormé, Sarah Vaughn, Marianne Faithfull, Serge Gainsborough, Ricky Nelson, Ray Charles, Lou Rawls, and Elvis Costello among others.
Don't listen to it if you're feeling depressed; as a matter of fact, just taste it by listening to the intro.
Bjork does a good version, even though this is a departure from her songs which are usually upbeat and bounc.:
Then there's Gustav Mahler's morbid Kindertotenleider (Song of Dead Children) to make you blue, should you choose. There's a country song that's hard to take: Sunday Morning Coming Down. It's for drinking beer and feeling sorry for yourself. It lacks that special pizazz that country music has. Taste these kinds of music in small doses. Life is too brief for gloomy songs.
