A list about the most depressing bands/artists ever part 3

Criteria: My list, my rules. As always. The artist/band has to have two albums from which songs can be picked (off as a minimum). The songs can't be the only depressing song on a happy album (i.e Where is the Love on Elephunk by The Black Eyed Peas , possibly their only good song.) To block that the album needs a minimum of two depressy songs on it, but a max of four or half of 'A rush of blood to the head' will have to be listed. I'm not going to justify why the songs are depressing,I'll just find youtube links.

The list

25. Sting - Reggae and up tempo with The Police. But manages haunting too. I think I Sting's voice just has range.
