'In February of 1936, Budapest Police were investigating the suicide of a local shoemaker, Joseph Keller. The investigation showed that Keller had left a suicide note in which he quoted the lyrics of a recent popular song. The song was 'Gloomy Sunday'. Read more here, listen more below.

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 thought of ever returning you
Would they be angry if I thought of joining you?


Just a few, my favorites, performed by:
.- Billie Holiday (mp3)
.- Lydia Lunch (mp3)
.- Bjork (mp3)
.- Paul Whiteman w/Johnny Hauser (mp3)
.- Diamanda Galas (asf)
