Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs
The Contenders: Page 3XW
I will be the first to admit that I tear up every time I hear this song. The countdown at the beginning sets you on edge for the terrible beauty that ensues. The lyrics are wonderful and yes, even the saxophone gets to you.
Just Oh my god, this, this is a beautiful song. It is sad yet intriguing yet depressing yet mystical.
İt is perfect song to describe sadness, loneliness and oblivion ))) Simple and beautiful!V1 Comment
Yes, another Elliott Smith song. I had to put this on here because of the piano at the beginning, if not for anything else. It makes you feel like you are spinning and slowly falling as he wraps you up in the lyrically brilliant song.
This song is perfect from the intertwined duets of voices and piano to the lyrics. It makes you want to stare at everything in wide eyed wonder. A musical version of the book "Sophie's World". It was used in the trailer for "The Lovely Bones"
It makes me feel somewhat isolated, very haunting.
When my grandmother passed away, I listened to this song and I couldn't stop crying. Beautiful song
A great song, the melody pulls you in and the lyrics tell a sad but beautiful story of loss.
Its A7X...Name suggests the quality! Worth giving a shot..awesome song...a must listen..
Fantastic song, great lyrics capped off with a brilliant guitar solo.V4 Comments
Amazing story telling from one of the best rappers, this song is like an emotional rollercoaster. You can feel the anger and hate building up and leading to an intense part that may be shocking if you listen it for the first time. The part that gets me is the last verse, when Eminem says 'Come to think about it, his name was... it was you. Damn'. Should be top 10
If you never heard this song, listen to it then listen to the disturbed cover.
Quite simply, one of the best songs ever written.
Hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking
This is the best song I've ever heard. Kate's voice, the lyrics, the chorus, the guitar, piano, violin; it's all perfect. This song does get better each time you listen to it.
In my opinion, there's nothing more haunting than this song.
Awesome song. Sounds great and brings great imagery. I picture walking through the snowy woods in dead silence. If you're not a screamo fan however, I wouldn't recommend trying to find similar songs from this artist.
When Jackie sang this on talkshows, even the show hosts were in tears.V1 Comment
