Saddest Madonna Songs


The Top TenXW

1Oh Father

Even her vocal sounds so great here. The song is moving - Irina2932

Madonna's vocals on this song tear my heart apart. Those vocals with the growing melody right up untill the last part are like no other song she ever made.

The saddest of all, definitely. The lyrics in the end: "You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too" and the melody growing and growing until only unbearable sadness and pain remain.

2This Used to Be My Playground

Wonderfully beautiful and touching song! - Irina2932

3The Power of Good-Bye

Quite possibly the most profound lyrics Madonna has ever written.
"Freedom comes when you learn to let go. Creation comes when you learn to say No." - theOpinionatedOne

4Paradise (Not for Me)
5Promise to Try
6In This Life

I love her performance of this song - Irina2932


The melancholic sound on this one is strong. The ongoing guitar rhythm with her soft pure voice. The futuristic sounds create a magical feeling.

Great performance plus very touching lyrics - Irina2932

8Time Stood Still

Too bad Madonna didn't make this beautiful track a single. Nice lyrics - Irina2932

9Bad Girl

Its musical arrangements is marvelous. 'Bad Girl' is one of my most favorite Madonna songs - Irina2932

Madonna's first sad song! Still one of the most memorable tracks from the 80's - Irina2932
