Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 21

401 Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word - Elton John Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word - Elton John
402 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

. I'm surprised this amazing song wasn't on the list. It is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard. It is about the narrator, who falls in love with a girl. They are so in love, and they have a child. But, the narrator soon finds out that his one true love is sick, and only has weeks to live. It is one of the most passionate, heart-wrenching songs ever. Please listen to it. And vote. For this song is truly amazing, and incredibly sad.

I've only recently become a fan of this band and I can see me still being one in the future but this song hit me so hard and I can tell you that's if you haven't heard this amazing song you need to go and listen to it now.

I still cry every time I hear this song. It breaks my heart, because it could be a possible situation in anyone's life.

Only song that has put me close to tears

403 Nutshell - Alice In Chains Nutshell - Alice In Chains

You cannot listen to Nutshell without a feeling of sadness and remorse. The tone of the guitar in this song, as well as the steady drums make the song sound so somber. The lyrics and the vocals that Layne provided for the song show off even more remorse, and even during the end guitar solo you can't help but feel very sad. - NuMetalManiak

Thank you for putting this up... So heartfelt and needs to be in top 5.. Rip layne staley

Even sadder if you see Layne Staley, who was detoriated from heroin and cocaine addiction by that time sing it on the unplugged version.

404 I'll Be There - Escape Club I'll Be There - Escape Club
405 Njosnavelin - Sigur Ros

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

406 Epiphany - Staind Epiphany - 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.

407 This Woman's Work - Kate Bush This Woman's Work - Kate Bush
408 Empty Tears, Empty Hearts - Hale Empty 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

409 Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol Chasing 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.

410 Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne Slipped 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.
