Most Depressing: Wake Up Dead Man - no contest, although I do love the song.

Most Uplifting: Where The Streets Have No Name - no contest. (Maybe honorable mention to BD)

I think that instead of picking seperate songs to fit in the catagories - you should try to find one song that can be both uplifting and depressing.

My pick is "wake up deadman" and "if God will send his angels".

For me, "One" is one of the most gut-wrenching musical experiences I've ever had.
The song tears me up inside like no other, simply because I utterly envision the worst parts of my life throughout that song - it spells out the worst in me, but the bright spot is that "One" was the catalyst of my salvation. So perhaps it's uplifting in that vein, but only due to hindsight.

I honestly don't see much of a way for WUDM to be uplifting.

Streets, Elevation, and Mofo win Most Uplifting

Kite Makes me Cry
Love is Blindness-you can actually hear the guitar "sobbing" in the end

Stay and Ground Beneath her Feet make me wanna kill myself due to connections with tragic long distance romance(don't take me too literally)

and I'm not sure why Velvet dress is depressing??? I think its one of the most erotic songs I've ever heard-
(and NO I'm not a nympho)

Sorry, Zoney. Pleba is leaking again..

One is uplifting in a depressing way.

And Streets always gets me going.

Skeek,

There is Hope lying deep in "Wake Up Deadman". Just gotta dig for it.
