Recommend media that is dark, sad, and beautiful

I love the theatrical, haunting, sad, yet, beautiful music of Lana Del Ray. Can you recommend any similar music, or accompanying literature and cinema? Thank you!

Sad Bastard Music?

I'm looking for some new suggestions for good sad bastard music - that is, stuff that can leave you nice and melancholy when it's late at night and you want to feel comfortably down & depressed. To frame this a little I should note that Nick Drake, The Softies, early-period Belle & Sebastian, and The Mountain Goats have been go-to choices in the past. Thanks!

Music like Up's; up, then down

I'm looking for songs that start out cheerful or sweet and turn sad. My best example of this is the Marriage Song/Theme from the movie Up. It doesn't suit my purposes, however. Can you help me find some others? [more inside]

Waaaa! I Wanna Wallow Just a Little Bit Longer!!

After this, I thought what if I wanna hear sad music that can either let a person wallow in their misery or cry cathartically? Imagine a Bridget Jones type of situation: tubs of ice cream, bottles of wine singing "All by Myself." Depress me, please. Sad Sinead O'Connor, this is what I'm thinking.

Heart-wrenching classical music?

I'm looking for some hardcore heart-wrenching classical music. My current selection includes Vocalise by Rachmaninoff, Ständchen from Schwanengesang by Schubert, Shostakovich's 5th Symphony, first movement (because of that haunting ending!), and Prelude in C minor by Chopin. Suggestions? [more inside]

Who Will Sing Me to Sleep?

Aural Joy Filter: which songs, performed live and on YouTube, combine simplicity, beauty and quietness into a haunting, moving whole that will make you cry when the mood is right? There are such lists on Ask MeFi, but often without links.I'm thinking of things like this by Kate Rusby, which is just the most gorgeously sad thing.

Give us a soundtrack for our walk away from the apocalypse

I am looking for songs that call to mind (music-wise, rather than lyrics-wise) the rather specific feeling of walking or driving away from a great disaster that has left one greatly scarred, but alive: Post-apocalyptic victory songs. [more inside]
