326Breakaway - Kelly ClarksonV1 Comment
327Drowning in Tears - Gary Moore

I am in disbelief at there being no Gary Moore songs here. Anyway, this song for me, is the saddest I have heard. It is soulful in so many ways. - wizardryuk

328I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2V1 Comment
329Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin

It's just happens to be a very beautiful song that can really tug on one's heartstrings. It's quite hard to not be moved by it, especially with the acoustic beginning and Robert Plant's tender vocals. - serenajones

330I Want to Die - Mortal Love
331Cut - Plumb
332Losing You - Dead by April

This is probably the saddest song I've heard in my whole life. The intro was just enough to make me cry when I heard this song for the first time, the beautiful pianos, my God just amazing! His soft voice is so melodic and it showcases the emotion someone can go through when you lose a person you love very much E.G. : your parents. The sorrowful screaming is done so perfectly it makes me cry evertime I hear it, it just burns everything inside. The lyrics are written so good by Pontus Hjelm and Jimmie Strimell. "All I have is you, it is all that I'm breathing for. All I need is you... I am losing you forever. I am leaving ground forever..." just makes me cry every time I hear this chorus, the best chorus ever! This is definitely the saddest song I've ever heard, only song that makes my heart burst into tears. Dead by April's just amazing!
