@Scary folks

This song was written by  Hungarian composer Rezső Seress when he was going through a bad phase of his life. The story behind the origin of the song is very interesting. According to Legends, after  Rezso Seress girlfriend left him, he was so depressed and broken, that he wrote the melody that later  became “Gloomy Sunday”. The lyrics of the song were written by  Poet László Jávor , a friend of Seress. Some say that it was Javor whose girlfriend left him, inspiring the song as a poem first. While others claim Seress wrote the lyrics, they were about pain and despair caused by war, but Javor changed it to a heartbreaking ballad.

Gloomy Sunday got the name “Hungarian Suicide Song” because it is said that hundreds (if not thousands) of suicides that had been inspired by listening to it.

Here is the English Version of the song –

“On a sad Sunday with a hundred white flowers

I was waiting for you, my dear, with a church prayer

That dream-chasing Sunday morning

The chariot of my sadness returned without you.

Ever since then, Sundays are always sad

Tears are my drink, and sorrow is my bread.

Sad Sunday.

Last Sunday, my dear, please come along,

There will even be a priest, coffin, catafalque, hearse-cloth.

Even then flowers will be awaiting you, flowers and coffin.

Under blossoming (flowering in Hungarian) trees

My journey shall be the last.

My eyes will be open so that I can see you one more time

Do not be afraid of my eyes as I am blessing you even in my death.

Last Sunday.”
