The Top TenXW

1Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Almost same explanation as high hopes - zxm

This song is about ebing alone and being drugged. The solo has a desperate and lonley feel to it. High Hopes on the other hand to me is very happy

2Where Were You - Jeff Beck

Well jeff beck is underrated and so his works - zxm

3High Hopes - Pink Floyd

The backing riff might sound joyful but the solo is very very sad - zxm

Whenever I listen this solo I feel like I am in a lonely place - zxm

4Tears in Heaven - Eric ClaptonV1 Comment
5Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest

The 1st solo (Glenn Tipton) - especially the last several notes of this solo break my heart and twist my soul. The song is about suicide. - Metal_Treasure

6Midnight Blues - Gary MooreV1 Comment
7So Far Away - Avenged SevenfoldV1 Comment
8Soldier Of Fortune - Deep Purple

The whole song makes you feel sad - zxm

9Black Star - Yngwie

This is an instrumental but it has 2 distinct solos that are very sad. The entire piece is very sad and I feel the existential loneliness all the time. - Metal_Treasure

10Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (1st solo)

The second solo may not be sad as first one that's why I wrote 1st solo with the song. - zxm

The Contenders

11Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

Closest songs to soldier of fortune - zxm

12Story of the Blues - Gary Moore
13My Back Pages - The Byrds

Absolutely an awesome solo by McGuinn and his 12-string, proving that solos don't have to be about speed and shredding. More than sad; its plaintive, sweet, and nostalgic. A classic for the ages.
