(1) And so my evening ended with the lugubrious sight and sound, fortunately unseen and unheard, of a chubby old poet singing along to a faltering self-accompaniment, working through a few old style songs.(2) How else to explain the Oscar triumphs of Gladiator, Out of Africa, and the legendarily lugubrious 1968 musical Oliver!?(3) I think it's better to be a little bit humorous, not just lugubrious if you can help it.(4) A large, disapproving looking woman of mature years accompanied by a lugubrious Schnauzer - both clad in sleeveless knitted jerkins - had materialised on the lawn.(5) But come on - he can be so longwinded, lugubrious , and self-indulgent.(6) I toured the small cemetery with its sad tombstone inscriptions, and then took the short boat trip back to Ile Royale, where a lugubrious guide pointed out the almond tree under which the guillotine used to stand.(7) The actor adores pranks, especially the ones that require a straight face and his familiar lugubrious delivery.(8) ├ö├ç├┐I was a unique talent,├ö├ç├û says John, in lugubrious tones.(9) Something in the vibration of that deep, pompous tone he adopts - the lugubrious , narcissistic fake gravity - grates on me.(10) Which makes Paradise Lost the ideal listen for those among you who happen to like the more lugubrious moments of Depeche Mode, or Metallica, or, preferably, both.(11) Just as well that he's arranged his own party: his lugubrious downer of a dad has forgotten what day it is.(12) The performances are as sharp as a tack, with Sergent and Blackburn quite brilliant as the ├ö├ç├┐cynical pustule├ö├ç├û Pump and the laconically lugubrious Smith.(13) ├ö├ç├┐I think of myself as pretty much an undiscovered genius,├ö├ç├û quips the lugubrious 47-year-old.(14) The mood in their haunted honky-tonk runs from lugubrious laments to boisterous boogies, drawing in touches of ragtime, country, blues and cabaret.(15) While the penultimate anti-whaling lament, The Last Leviathan, proves somewhat lugubrious , the album closes on a note of affirmation with the simple but affecting love song Running Home.(16) He has this rather lugubrious expression and a kind of lethargy that makes you wonder if he finds it a bit of a pain to keep himself alive by breathing in and out.
