In 1933 Hungary, Rezso Seress had a break-up with his girlfriend. It happened to be a Sunday. Feeling rejected, he wrote a song “ Gloomy Sunday ”.
He took his composition to a publisher who rejected it as he felt the song was quite depressing for him to bear it. When Seress took the song to a second publisher, he committed suicide after hearing it.
It was only the third publisher who finally released the song in Europe. However, soon after following incidents occurs :-
Someone in Berlin killed himself by shooting.
The song’s next victim was a boy in Rome who jumped off a bridge.
In Hungary itself, 17 people killed themselves after listening to the song. When it was released in the US, a woman was its first victim.
Later, the song was banned in many places around the world. Some composers tried to add an extra verse to it. There was even an attempt to play only the tune of the song and not its lyrics. But nothing worked. The song is said to have induced more than 100 people to kill themselves.
