    It has three movements, and at least some of them are too long for youtube, sadly. You can get a good taste of it from youtube at least though.

    Part of the first movement (but not starting at the beginning and cutting off the very end, sadly):

    YouTube - Symphony of Sorrowful Songs - Henryk Grecki - 1st movement
    The beginning is a very gradual but very beautiful build up to a wonderful climax, that then is brought down leading into the singer at the beginning of that link.

    Second movement:
    YouTube - Gorecki Symphony No. 3 "Sorrowful Songs" - Lento e Largo

    I'm sure you can find at least parts of the 3rd too if you want. I'd also encourage you to look up the context it was written in and a translation of the lyrics, at least if you like it. And of course, as with any song like this, only listen when you can give it the attention it deserves. Hope you enjoy!
    Ah, it pains me to listen to mutilated symphonies.
    Loved it, so I just listened to the beginning; I should get the whole thing to listen to it properly.

    If Hurt is sad, then...

    Radiohead - Exit Music (Live, Belfort 97)

    I realise of course it's hard to tell if it's sadness or it's anger or it's both.

    I always think of it as Romeo's song, only he knows what's coming.


    Supposedly, both Trent Reznor and Thom Yorke are INTJ. Yay us.

    I like it when Jesus and my name are in the same sentence.

    Ahh, I had Lhasa's records on my old computer. It made for a pleasant off-shoot from Nuevo Tango (Which, of course, began with Tosca Tango in Waking Life). Maybe try Calexico's Untitled tracks on Hot Rail (with sub-woofer way up). 'though it's more space than intensity.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Icelandic band Sigur Rs' ( ) album just came to my mind, all the songs in it are untitled, and sang in a made up nonsensical language.

    My favourite is Untitled 7, I found parts of it all butchered on youtube.

    'though it's more space than intensity.
    Give me intense then.

    Sigur Rs - Untitled #8

    I love Sigur Rs perhaps a bit too much, Untitled #8 is also another good song from the ( ) album AKA Popplagi or The Screaming Masterpiece.
    Whoops.
