The Contenders: Page 14XW

261Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5
262This Is My Story, This Is My Life - Sicktanick
263Hate That I Love You - Rihanna
264New Slang - The Shins
265Into the Light - In This Moment
266Day After Day - Badfinger
267Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel

Good one. Too similar to "Hero of War" which is on the top ten. Just that this is about a war that is no longer considered fresh and sadly forgotten about. History repeats itself

268The Wind Blows - The All-American Rejects
269Last Song - Gackt

Far saddest song.. You need to read english lyrics! He is best artist, no no HE is Good - Lucius

So damn sad and beautiful song...

270Reila - The Gazette

Definitely the saddest song I've ever heard. Really, if you haven't listened to it, you'll never know.

super sad song... makes me wanna cry - AresRed

Gorgeous and beautiful song that causes amazing feelings inside me. Touching melody, awesome voice. Thank you, the GazettE!

271Bittersweet Memories - Bullet for My ValentineV1 Comment
272Snuff - Slipknot

How in the bloody hell is this ranked 171?! This is the saddest song I've ever heard! This song is purely beautiful. It's about a couple not wanting to breakup but they know it's for the best. My girlfriend and I have broken up several times and have gotten back together, and this song always has brung tears to my eyes in those darkest hours. This song deserves more recognition.

149!? This is the saddest song I've ever heard. The lead singers wife divorced him and now he's sad. Simple, but effective. I can relate to it cause I like this girl but she doesn't like me back, but I can't hate her. That's how he feels too.

This song is just pure beautiful genius written by Corey Taylor, it's so full of emotion and the song I listen to every time I get rejected by a girl (all the time)

Its really sad when they play this song over clips of paul gray I'm not much of a cryer but this song makes me tear up

273A Tout le Monde - Megadeth

Dave Mustang writes songs that could make a Vulcan cry.

I want this song played at my funeral

274Hiroshima - Sandra

Come on guys! This song is amazingly sad and touching! Let's vote for it

275Fall for You - Secondhand SerenadeV1 Comment
276Say Something - A Great Big World

I cannot believe this item is not on this list yet. This song, about heartbreak, is one of the saddest I have ever heard. The music video is incredibly touching; it conveys an incredibly powerful yet sad image in the viewer's mind. Vote for this one!

This is the saddest song I've ever heard, it reminds me of my dead grandma (I just began crying now) and how she died of a stroke, I cry because it makes me wish I was a better grandson while she was alive, Extremely powerful song

This is the only song that can make me cry, should be in the top ten so more people can hear it and cry with me ;_;

This song is sad, but listen to the parody of it by Toby Turner called Sad Song.

277Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

This song deserves to be at least top 10. The chills that you get from this is song is overpowering. When you fully understand the meaning Avenged Sevenfold was going for and the history behind Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, this song really hits in the heart with emotion

The most emotional part is the piano solo at the end with the backing vocals and the when the swithch happens between the piano and the organ you feel like this person is saying his last words must definitely be in the top 10

Really sad. The lyrics are so chilling and it makes me tear up every time.

One of the saddest songs I've heard should be at least top 10.

278Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

"Good bye everybody, I've got to go. Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth. Mama I don't wanna die, but sometimes wish I was never born at all" that line made me cry, nothing described my feelings at the time like that line that

If you listen to the first 2 minutes of it, it makes you wanna cry. The song isn't really the best but gets better. It's still depressing!

What this is bohemian rhapsody

279Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground - Blind Willie Johnson

A beautiful instrumental that needs no words to express the pain felt in this song. Listening to this song takes to the land of darkness that this blues man endured without uttering a single world. Only a Slide Guitar and some moans. A perfect example of how actions speak louder than words.

More than anything else ever recorded, this tune reaches down inside and pulls something out of you. It's simultaneously one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences, listening to it. I can't make it through without choking up; it's what I imagine dying sounds like.

When I was scrolling through the list I realized that this song is way too depressing to be at 31. So very sad and emotional, even sadder when you hear how he died.

280Looking In - Mariah Carey

It is a very beautiful song, but the music sounds so sad.

Beautiful, Carey shows her sadness
