Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Missing - Evanescence Missing - Evanescence

This always puts me to sleep

62 Fear and Loathing - Marina and the Diamonds Fear and Loathing - Marina and the Diamonds
63 Immortal - Marina and the Diamonds Immortal - Marina and the Diamonds
64 Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cancer - My Chemical Romance

A song from my favorite band who saved my life this is from one of the best concept albums. Truly gut wrenching and beautiful. The emotion Gerard Way conveys in his voice... Priceless. Pure and utterly incomparable.

This is an amazing song. Its sad and depressing, but it helps in many ways.

65 Burden - Opeth Burden - Opeth
66 You Lost Me - Christina Aguilera You Lost Me - Christina Aguilera

The song is so sad it makes you cry so much I couldn't stop listening to it

I sing this song in shows and I'm in tears by the end every time

67 The Reason Hoobastank The Reason Hoobastank

Not really a haunting song, but it has a message that resonates with you. He wants to change himself into a better man because of her.

68 Burn - The Cure Burn - The Cure

I first heard this song whilst watching "The Crow" Which by the way is an excellent movie. It talks of whispering shadows and crow black dreams. How could I not put this on my list? Robert Smith's almost weary voice in the last verse gives me shivers every time.

The guitar solo is haunting! Totally haunting. With the pain the crow has within him this actually depicts it beautifully - amitcornelius1

Not their most emotional song but the best on this list. Disintegration or Last Dance is better.

69 Who Am I Living For. Katy Perry Who Am I Living For. Katy Perry
70 Slipped Away. Avril Lavigne Slipped Away. Avril Lavigne
71 Carpathian Ridge - Michael Andrews Carpathian Ridge - Michael Andrews

A soundtrack song in Donnie Darko, Carpathian Ridge is mostly just a barely audible humming untill near the end where the simple piano keyes are so stark and beautiful I cried the first time I heard them, and many times since.

72 I Will Follow You Into the Dark - Death Cab for Cutie I Will Follow You Into the Dark - Death Cab for Cutie

Its like I am following... till the dark.

73 Goodbye My Friend - Linda Ronstadt Goodbye My Friend - Linda Ronstadt

Touching lyrics sung by a beautiful voice Makes me cry.

74 Amelia - Tonight Alive Amelia - Tonight Alive

This song pays tribute to the lead singer (Jenna McDougall)'s childhood friend Amelia McGuiness who passed away in a skiing accident when she was 16. The rest of the songs on the album are your generic pop punk songs, but this song left me breathless the first time I heard it. It took me so long to stop crying when I listen to this, because the lyrics are so powerful and capture exactly how loved Amelia was. I strongly recommend to listen to this as it is truly a beautiful song and is one of the few songs that I can overplay and still love. Even the way that the guitar, bass and drums are done is so clever that it makes the beautiful lyrics even more meaningful.

This is a beautiful song and it really resonates with me as I can relate as it sums up how I feel towards a close friend of mine who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The song is truly beautiful and there is so much meaning behind it

75 How Can I Tell You - Cat Stevens How Can I Tell You - Cat Stevens

Listen to it when it's quiet, and you'll see what I mean. Imagine it's about a loved one of your own who has passed on.

76 Blank Page - Christina Aguilera Blank Page - Christina Aguilera

This song means so much to me. While I was falling to pieces she came and hold my hand. Thank you Christina for making me a Fighter.

She saved my life. She is a lifesaver and this song is from her soul her heart... QUEENTINA!

77 The Windmills of Your Mind - Noel Harrison The Windmills of Your Mind - Noel Harrison
78 Email From a Vampire - Robbie Williams Email From a Vampire - Robbie Williams
79 Forever Fields (Sowing Season) - 10 Years Forever Fields (Sowing Season) - 10 Years

I love this song! The lyrics are so cynical, yet beautiful. 10 years is known for their poetic lyrics, this song stands out from their others because of the haunting/sad atmosphere it creates.

The vocals are dark and haunting, the instrumental is almost ethereal. Quite depressing.

80 Wicked Game - Chris Isaak Wicked Game - Chris Isaak

I have been looking for this song for so long I thought it was just a figment from my imagination
