Top Ten Saddest Music Videosthedoctor
The Top TenXW
Epic song! This is something that shows the least of Green Day's legendary capability... Wonderful melancholic tune, Sharp and cutting lyrics, Billie joe's signature acoustic guitar and unforgettable vocals-add it with a wonderful storyline for the music video-You get one of the best Alternative Rock music videos ever!
Whenever I see this video I think of 2 things: how my dad was fortunate enough to live trough cancer, and to think about your lover before you go and do something bad, even if it helps them.
The video has a beautiful story that reminds me of lost young love. I cry every time I see it.
Classic song. one of Green Day's bestV4 Comments
Especially the part of the old mand at his wife's grave :(
It makes me cry because I imagine myself in that situation, especially the old man's, because we can relate to it. While no one in my family is in the military, I can't relate to that part but its still very touching and sad because others can. But I feel the old man's part really hit a nerve because we know its very likely going to happen to us.
I think "When You're Gone" by Avril Lavine is the 3rd saddest right behind Rascal Flatts's "Here Comes Goodbyes" and "What Hurts the Most"
It's already 2016 and I'm still in love with her songs. So sad she doesn't make music anymore. She was one of the musicians worth listening. That quality, deep lyrics and that punk-rock touch. Dam I miss it.V28 Comments
The ending is so sad. The song and the expression on Enrique's face plus him being beaten to death by these gangsters in gut-wrenching even though I'm a normal bloke
As you can see that love Hewitt is from the scene in the music video he's stab him and Hewitt Crying in the ending of the music video...
A romantic story, with a tragic ending. The acting is great and the song itself with Enrique's emotion into it supports the sad theme of the videos ending.
The best song of all timeV3 Comments
This one made me cry more than the NIN version. You have sad lyrics sung by JOHNNY CASH! Plus after he released the song he died 7 months later
Watch it now, THEN vote, the song itself will make you cry, come on, WATCH IT NOW
This video was... Amazing. It really showed his pain and his state of hurt.
This is one of my favorite songs and I can't watch the video with out becoming sad.V4 Comments
Oh... My God! I saw this video once as a pretty young kid, and I was traumatized just by hearing this song for years! Legitimately the only song that still can make me cry. How does any song, and especially video, rank higher than this one in terms of sadness?
I just watched this and I am sobbing! This should be number! 1 It's so hard and terribly frightening someone could do that to her own child! R.I.P. angela Carter!
Both the song and the video disturbed me as a child... And still kinda do. Its horrible and too effective... The images McBride gives us of the abused child.
The song moved me the way no other song ever has when I saw the video. I put my hands over my mouth and I NEVER do anything like that when I see music videos.V5 Comments
A guy how just wanted to meet Eminem... He got crazy and killed his girlfriend with their baby inside... Damn!
This is one of the most powerful music videos (and songs) of all time. It really gives you chills because any one of us could be like Stan.
One of the best music videos of all time.
Wow one vote by me brought this video up 14 placesV2 Comments
What an amazing song and Madonna is so beautiful here! Yes, it's sad but still beautiful
Just imagining losing someone like this. It's not just a breakup where there's always that chance to get him back. She'll never have him again.
Such a beautiful song sang by the perfect person. She deserves everything and more
I think the video ( if I'm even getting this right ) is kinda creepy - Wolfpelt
How regretful is thatV3 Comments
Well, it's a wonderful song, the video is sad, but makes you want to cry when you see that even after a total breakdown, the character doesn't give up. The music video is crafted in darkness but throws a ray of lightV3 Comments
It's the saddest music video and also one of the saddest songs ever
It's so sad when he commits suicide at the end. - purplemonkey123V1 Comment
Really SAD video... But still very beautiful, touching, moving. Toni showed a very skillful vocal abilities here - Irina2932
No, I never cry on that song. It's actually my favorite one. I love it.
Really one of my most favorite songs ever!V2 Comments
The very last scene, where she reaches out to him, but she knows he's not there to hold her hand in return, it breaks even my ice cold, emotionless heart every damn time.V2 Comments
Great song, great video. Hope they get the attention they deserve.
It's a sad sad sad song. I almost cried when I heard them for the first time. Love these guys!
John Mario, we're waiting for you here in Richmond, VA! Thanks for your music...
Depression is the answer to everything...V11 Comments
How is this not number 1? It's 10 minutes long, tells a better story than most 2 hour movies, and cost more to make than most any other music video (It had a $2.5 million budget.
Axl rose is banging on a piano and singing, while Slash has three different solos. What's not to love?
I read the short story that inspired this music video, very emotional as well.
I watched it randomly and thought about it for the rest of the day
Not even in top 10? Kidding me? It's the best video of the best song.V3 Comments
This video shows how looks life of a person, that someone has left.V3 Comments
The story in the song is pretty powerful in itself, but what got my waterworks going is the whole set of situations where they just gave up completely and have no will to fight.
Every time I listen to this song I remember my grandma who passed away
It's okay. I don't really go around, and cry on this song.
I didn't cry. But the girls in my class didV2 Comments
Criminally underrated song! I had no idea Shakira could be that great
