Top Ten Saddest Love Songs

Hajj
Whether it's a song about a recent breakup or memories of an old lover, any love song that can bring you to tears belongs on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Lovers - Jackie Evancho Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Gorgeous, incredible voice. This song has a magnificent a cappella part at the end where Jackie's voice soars.

Your criteria say "any love song that can bring you to tears belongs on this list." Well, one glance at Jackie's audience after she finishes this song will justify her position here. - BobG

You must be incredibly bad at math. Ask one of your professors to define: All, Most, Many, A Majority, Half, Some, A Few, A Handful, A Fraction.
Miss Evancho is on a fraction of the total music lists here at top tens. Several of the ones you made fit her categories, but "Most" lists at TTT are about metal, rock, or rap, and she is never on any of them.

She got what I wanted... her voice is perfect for this song, it hit me hard...
