"Gloomy Sunday" as written by and Rezso/javor Seress....
From gloomy Sunday soundtrack
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 coach
Of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thoughts
Of ever returning you
Would 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 there'll be candles
And prayers that are said I know
But let them not weep
Let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessing 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 telling you
How much I wanted you

Gloomy Sunday

    General Commentsadly, not the bets version...and more sad still, most people that have covered this tragic song have ruined it too. Ye original is till the most famous and distressing, mainly for the history surrounding it, and thr suicides that sprang from it. Not just the original author, who wrote the song after breaking up from his girlfriend, who strangely enough committed suicide cluthing a note with the words "gloomy sunday" written upon it, but many who listened to it, over 100 in hungary alone. Listen to Billie Holidays version. Sublime.

    General CommentI can never find this one version of this song. I'm not sure who performed it, but I know a man did it with a jazz orchestra (I loved the vocals but the jazz didn't really go with it). It's a performance that was recorded in the early nineteen hundreds. Anyone know where I can find this song/

    By the way, I really liked this version of the song. Wow, a lot of people have do this song!!! I really like it.
