Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 11XW

201Till Kingdom Come - Coldplay

I love this song. It's not really sad, but it gives me tears of hope all the same.

202Micheal - Sadistik
203Bury Me Deep Inside In Your Heart - HIM

this song must be first... it is so sad but it is so beautiful.. I love this son so much!.. H.I.M. is the best band ever.. and Ville's voice is so beautiful and he is so gorgeous.. the lyrics of the song are great... this is the best song ever!

All HIM songs have a sad beauty about them. This one really gets to me though, the passion in Ville's voice, the simplistic yet powerful lyrics that only Ville can write. Its just so damn beautiful.

One of the saddest songs I've ever heard. There even was a time when I used to cry listening to this song. Gorgeous, Ville, thank you so much!

Some songs give you an emotional overload. This does it for me. It's hauntingly beautiful and incredibly sad. Ville writes with tremendous passion.

204What Hurts the Most - Rascal Flatts

The song and especially the music video makes me cry every single time. You can literally feel the pain in the lyrics. Not to mention the lilting violin that tugs at your heartstrings.

This is so heart touching and heart breaking song along with the video

205Lonely Day - System of a Down

First time I heard this song, I literally started crying. But if you hear Soldier Side, you'll weep so hard...

one of soads only soft songs with an amzing solo - Flying_spidermonkey

What can you do is you alone... the music and lyric so lonely... but, bad video clip.

206Skin - Rascal Flatts
207The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

This song makes me cry every time. We have to sing this song for our school's winter concert, and I try to hide my face, because I cry.

This song was playing in watchmen during the comedians funeral. I love this song, it's so nice.

Should be much higher. Probably not the saddest song I know but definitely the darkest.

210Estranged - Guns N Roses

the saddest song of guns n roses. - ronluna

211Don't Let it Show - The Alan Parsons Project
212The Dance - Garth Brooks

This song was played at my grandfathers funeral, reminds me of him so much he used to sing it all the time.. Garth brooks you are my hero! Makes me cry a lot listing to this song, so emotional..

I'm not even a huge fan of country, but this song resonates with me like no other song does

213Disenchanted - My Chemical Romance
214Can You Hear Me - Missy Elliott
215In The Ghetto - Elvis Presley
2164 Seasons of Loneliness - Boyz II Men
217Don't You Forget About Me - Enrique Iglesias
218Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
219Behind These Hazel Eyes - Kelly Clarkson
220Two for Tragedy - Nightwish

Nightwish has the most beautiful ballads that I have ever heard. Their style is different, some might call it odd, but give this song a chance, you'll be surprised. It's full of emotion, it's soft, and yet so strong. It speaks of death in a painfully beautiful way that leaves you numb and speechless. Other recommended songs are Dead Boy's Poem, Sleeping Sun and Deep Silent Complete.
