Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 21XW

401I'll Be There - Escape Club
402Njosnavelin - Sigur Ros

This is an extremely pretty song.. The way the guitarist uses a cello bow is just amazing in this song..

403Epiphany - Staind

It's easy to find a Staind song that's acoustic and driven with sadness, and Epiphany is of no exception. The lyrics in the chorus, as stated, show depression and solitude, and so does the line "so I talk to you like children". The drumming during the chorus is a march-type of drumming of the sad kind. - NuMetalManiak

"its always raining in my head" an anthem for depression and solitude. A tear jerker for self reflection.

404This Woman's Work - Kate Bush
405Empty Tears, Empty Hearts - Hale

it's a song from their 2nd album "twilight"
this song really made my eyes pour down tears from what i've experienced before... it the lyrics and the tune shows the real emotion of it's theme - jully

406Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

I can't belive this song is this far down the list. it's really one of the saddest ones out there. I first discovered it off Greys anatomy and honestly, when I lost my best friend to cancer, I used to listen to this song on repeat and lay in my roof staring at the stars. it really helps, it just sparks a nerve that makes you remember everything. the acoustic version is very good too, it's just a good song overall. it really just brings tears to my eyes because it reminds me of her. I miss you Ariel.

407Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne

This is so sad! Look up "(Insert fandom name here) sad" on YouTube and the videos that come up almost always have this song playing in the background. I don't see how it isn't 1 or 2, honestly.

Its a sad song because she wrote it for her grandfather who passed away while she was on tour. It makes me cry when I hear it because it reminds me of my mum. :'(

Really why is this sing not on here. I cry to this all the time.

It should be at the top of the list. It is very rocking but also it is very very sad. Whoever listen this song, will be cry. It is very very beautiful song

Whenever I atch the video feel like it tells my life's story! Really sad and depressing...

I listen to it all the time and when I listen to it, the people in my family always say I'm depressing them from listening to it. My Mom crys when I listen.
