In 1933, Hungarian pianist Rezső Seress composed a song titled Gloomy Sunday, but is now known as the Hungarian Suicide Song due to the reportedly high number of people who commit suicide while listening to it.

    Hi

    I just finished listening to this episode of Thinking Sideways (actually my first ep.) and I enjoyed it very much. It was the song, Gloomy Sunday, that caught my attention. I already knew about the history and myths behind it after watching the German feature film of the same name. This is actually my reason for writing this comment - you must watch the film! It is a fictionalised story based around this song - it has a Ménage à trois, Nazis and one of the most satisfying endings to a film you will ever see. It was released in the US on DVD and there is also a low res copy on YouTube.
