I was on the 8-year plan so my list encompasses a lot of music... listened to just about anything depressing and introverted.

Dead Can Dance
Lycia
Cocteau Twins
Slowdive
Lush
This Mortal Coil
Autumn
Curve
Chapterhouse
Love Spirals Downwards
Jane's Addiction
Pale Saints
Siouxsie & the Banshees
Skinny Puppy
The Orb
Ministry
Sugarcubes
Nitzer Ebb
Echo & the Bunnymen
The Verve
Sisters of Mercy
Clan of Xymox
Front242
The Smiths
Revolting Cocks
Mazzy Star
Kitchens of Distinction
Ocean Blue
Smashing Pumpkins
Soul Whirling Somewhere
The Judybats
80s - Depeche, New Order, Duran, TFF, TT, Cure, Simple Minds, Human League, A-Ha
College study sessions - Steve Roach, Robert Rich, vidnaObmana

Most important?  Probably a tie between Dead Can Dance, Lycia, and Cocteau Twins

Around our house, it was The Pogues, Skinny Puppy, The Feelies, Big Black, Killdozer.

Then, in a thrift store, I found a cheesy, beat-up album called Cycle Psychos by the Scramblers.  It cost me a quarter; I think we listened to it ten times a day until it finally got so scratchy it wouldn't play anymore.  Really cheesy, early 60's rockabilly with hilariously bad lyrics about motorcycles, helmets, race tracks:  so so good.

I wish I was a Glowworm; a Glowworm's never glum. 'Cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?
