Brick is #13 most depressing song of all time

29/June/2005 - 13:18

Ben Folds Five's BrickThe Guardian has a list up of the most depressing songs 'of all time' by Tom Reynolds, author of "I Hate Myself and I Want To Die", and good ol' BFF made the list.

'Brick' made it to number 13 - naturally due to it's subject matter (abortion, but we all knew that, right?). The list got me wondering if 'Brick' is the most depressing Ben song of all time. Personally, 'Mitchell Lane' can bottom out the tone of any mixtape, and 'Alice Childress' always seems to take it out of me. In a good way, of course. Let me know what you think over on the boards.

Oh, and a final fun fact that might come in handy next time Benvivor rolls around - the girl in the Brick video is Ariana Richards, who played the little girl in Jurassic Park.

Cheers Chris!
