"Something in the Way" I could have just won the World Series and the Super Bowl at the same time and if that song came on the buzz would be gone....man

Surprised nobody's mentioned "Dumb" yet. That came to mind as soon as saw the thread title. It's from the perspective of a guy who not only has to put on a mask to the world; he can't even be honest with himself. And those melancholy strings certainly emphasize the bleakness of the entire song.

I find Dumb more wistful than depressing to be honest. I fucking love Dumb by the way.

when the final notes of all apologies, you know you're right, and where did you sleep last night? end, i always get chills and an overwhelming reality check of sadness.

Sappy, definitely imo. This version in particular. Gives me chills every time and yet that warm, snuggly, dark, under-the-blankey kinda feeling if that makes any sense.. lol

I hate myself and want to die, Kurt said people would take it wrong but personally, I think he really did feel that way at the time of recording.
