4. Gloomy Sunday Curse

Is there any music or even a song that can force people to kill themselves? As a matter of a fact that there are a few songs which are known to be so gloomy that they might come to force you to take your own life. One such song is the one which was written by Rezs Seress and Ladislas Jover. When the song was subject to a release in the regions of Hungary, most of the government officials linked the song to the rise in the suicide rate in the country the same year. Now, whether this claim is true or not, the song is indeed one of the most depressing ever. The song was also recorded in the years that follow, but each time it was released, the number of suicides rose.

3. The RJ Curse

The Robert Johnson Curse is linked to the great musician and iconic star named Robert Johnson. A story is persistent that Johnson had met the devil in some town and there he had given away his soul in order to become a great bluesman. As it is said that whenever a person meets the devil, there is always a cost which is to be paid. So in lines to this, Robert Johnson did become a great musician and a legend, but it all ended at the age of 27. Some of the people are of the view that Johnson’s song, crossroads, is indeed cursed itself which might be the reason for his death. Even the singers who tried to use it in their albums had gone to their downfall. These reasons might be enough for you to believe in this curse.

1. Curse of the 9th

Most of the composers who tried to write out the 9th symphony died shortly after it. This is the reason for which the curse has been named in this way. One of the most famous victim of this curse is Beethoven. Gustav Mahler was one of those fine composers who had made a name for themselves in a very short time span. When he started out the 10th symphony, he believed himself to be the only person to have beaten this curse, but not for long, as he died before the completion of the 10th symphony.
