Knowledge is Power!

If u didnt hear anything about Gloomy Sunday,i can surely say that u are missed to view the power of music in your life time....
g l o o m y s u n d a y is a notorius s u i c i d e s o n g was written in 1933. Its melody and original lyrics were the creation of Rezső Seress, a self-taught pianist and composer born in Hungary in 1899.

The crushing hopelessness and bitter despair which characterised the two stanza penned by Seress were superseded by the more mournful, melancholic verses of Hungarian poet László Jávor.

When the song came to public attention it quickly earned its reputation as a 'suicide song'. Reports from Hungary alleged individuals had taken their lives after listening to the haunting melody, or that the lyrics had been left with their last letters.

The lyricists Sam M. Lewis and Desmond Carter each penned an English translatation of the song. It was Lewis's version, first recorded by Hal Kemp and his Orchestra, with Bob Allen on vocals (1936), that was to become the most widely covered.

The popularity of Gloomy Sunday increased greatly through its interpretation by Billie Holiday (1941). In an attempt to alleviate the pessemistic tone a third stanza was added to this version, giving the song a dreamy twist, yet still the suicide reputation remained. Gloomy Sunday was banned from the playlists of major radio broadcasters around the world. The B.B.C. deemed it too depressing for the airwaves.

Despite all such bans, Gloomy Sunday continued to be recorded and sold.

People continued to buy the recordings; some committed suicide.

Rezső Seress jumped to his death from his flat in 1968



Here is the way to that suicide song:

dear we all are human and our mind is different in thinking....sometimes i may be also feel so(i am not sure that!)..every time i feel that the author is trying to analyze the most dangerous side of the loneliness....And also believe that the rhythm is nothing but the musical form of his "great silent/lonliness"...

:) I heard it, so I know the lyrics... I admit that it is a powerful song.. I won't dare listen to its instrumental version, for my own sake... No, the version is nice, it's just that the rhythm had been a part of my nightmares since forever... I could not realize what it is unless I heard the song.. But well, maybe I will try it :D

(Sidenote: don't you ever get the feeling that the lyricist is trying to tell to NOT be afraid of death?)

Here is the lyrics of the song


Sunday is gloomy,
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coaches
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thoughts
Of ever returning you
Wouldnt they be angry
If I thought of joining you?

Gloomy sunday

Gloomy is sunday,
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and i
Have decided to end it all
Soon therell be candles
And prayers that are said I know
But let them not weep
Let them know that Im glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death Im caressin you
With the last breath of my soul
Ill be blessin you

Gloomy sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart here
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is tellin you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy sunday

the core of the tune &lyrics are really gloomy..but it also shows the power of music especially the melodics one....don't forget that dear...
And it is also said that the music played without lyrics will put the listener into a deep sleep and induce vivid dreams and nightmares. The nightmares usually consist of falling or flying sensations.....
[But whatever the other says I believe in one philosophy of Adwithya; ie 'aham brahmasmy' means God is nothing but your mind only)....so it is up to you to decide whether the song is a notorious one or a landmark...
Comment by Garima Trivedi on July 28, 2008 at 12:33pm
I just heard this song... And my first reaction was "How dare they ban creep (by Radiohead) Don't they know what 'depressing' means?".. So yes, this song is totally depressing.. Obviously Rezső Seress wasn't urging people to commit suicide.. :) But I find the rhythm really haunting.. It's not just the lyrics, it's what the lyrics, the voice and the rhythm focus together.. Yes, they make it so powerful..

I really don't recommend this song for anyone who is already depressed.. They CAN feel suicidal urge within... For others, it is worth listening at least once..
