Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 6XW

101See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
102Lux Aeterna - Clint Mansell

This should be called, "Hauntingly Beautiful." Makes me think the end of days is on the rise. I can see buildings toppling, the ocean swallowing all the continents, the sun speeding into the earth and scorching us all to char. Very emotionally stimulating.

This song fits the description of haunting and beautiful perfectly. Once you listen to it you'll see.

103All I See - Lydia

"All I see scares me... "

104Haunted - Taylor Swift

Sorry no goose bumps to be found.

This song is probs one of my fave taylor swift songs around but hardly anyone knnows it. I wish it was more famous! - cutiepiestarlight

105Silent Lucidity - Queesnryche

If you haven't heard it, then make it a point to listen to it.

Amazing song. Makes me cry every time I hear it.

106Big Log - Robert Plant
107Don't Speak - No Doubt
108Shelter - Birdy
109Honeybee - Steam Powered Giraffe

This songs seems happy upon first listening, but once you read the lyrics and explore the meaning of the song you realise how sad it is... How'd you like to be a robot who lasts forever, while those you care about grow old and die?

This song is so sad but beautiful at the same time! It is my favourite love song in the entire world because of how beautiful it sounds and how it is slow and catchy at the same time! - cutiepiestarlight
