If you are jumping from joy, and feel a little embarrassed because of that, try Bohren & Der Club of Gore. This music will get you down to earth. It runs slowly, like a deep and dark river. Quite nice really! The last album is called "Dolores" (Pias 2008), and the band is Thorstein Benning, Christoph Clöser, Morten Gass and Robin Rodenberg.
I borrowed both "Dolores" and "Geisterfaust" (2005) from a friend, and have to say "Geisterfaust" is even darker (but the titles are a nice course in German: Zeigefinger, Daumen, Ringfinger, Mittelfinger og Kleiner Finger). This is perhaps not the best music if you are already depressed.
