The Contenders: Page 4
The best song ever makes me cry every time I hear this the guitar solo of synester is just killer never heard a song like this before this song is just immortal this would never be forgotten by anyone
just a piece of art
avenged sevenfold rocks
This is one of the saddest and yet most epic songs I've ever heard. I am also very surprised that I Won't See You Tonight (part 1) isn't on here (same artist). Its very long but equally powerful. The lyrics in this song are sad but inspiring at the same time, and the amazing solo just uplifts you after from the sadness. Wonderful song. - xSpartanXx
I used to love a girl but never said it to her being afraid of getting rejected as I was in 6th grade at that time
After 3 years, I shifted from that town and I came to know from a friend of hers that she loved me too and was rather crazy about me... By then she had already left that school and none of her friends know where she is anymore... I listen to this and it seems like its just meant for me
"Seize the day or die regretting the time you've lost"
True words of wisdom A7X m/
"so what if I never hold you? Yeah, or Kiss your lips again, Wooah"
You read this singing out the lyrics... don't lie ;) I love this part, it really captures the denial stage of grief
I love this song with every piece of my soul.
The violin rhythm lulls you into the deep of the song; and its story.
People forget to look further into the meaning of lyrics, and how songs are mostly written from the heart.
This song is probably one of the most devastating songs I've heard; lovers who would have been perfect, but don't cross paths until it's too late - simply poetic.
Although I agree with the top ten listed, I think this masterpiece should definitely be higher up. It is a real tear jerker I have to say
Number 47? This song's story is so depressing but morbidly true. I'm surprised it isn't up there in the top 10
Such a sad song, though amazing just because its not about love or a boyfriend its about not living the life you want and being lonely. Amazing song.
The lyrics are so depressing and raw.V 3 Comments
Can't believe this song isn't rated higher. If you've ever had a broken heart you can relate to this song. The mournful vocals, the haunting melodies, the gut-wrenching lyrics. And now my bitter hands, cradle broken glass. What was everything? All the love gone bad. Turns my world to black. Tattoos all I see. All that I am. All I'll be. Who the heck is sarah brightman?
In my opinion, it' s impossible to come up with a definitive ranking of the saddest songs ever, since what usually makes them so sad to us is how we relate to them. For me, Black is the saddest song ever, both because its lyrics are really meaningful to me and because it was the soundtrack of the saddest days in my life.
And all the pictures have, all been painted black. Of tattooed everything. The most emotionally pulling song there is. Vedder's vocals make the song a masterpiece
This song has really sad meaning behind it.V 7 Comments
This song is easily one of the most emotional songs I've ever listened to.
It has haunting lyrics, a beautiful melody and a fantastic tone.
Yeah agree but I think "Nothing Man " is one of his best...
I am a huge BBruce fan and this is a sad song but "Empty Sky" on the same cd is really sad or Into The Fire! Just the line...
Love and duty call you someplace higher, up the stairs into the fire! (Wow)
Also Gypsy biker is a great son
BETTERDAYS... It's a sad man my friend whos liv'n in his own skin and can't stand the company!
I think you get my point! Bruce can write a song!
From her first (self-released) album "Prelude To A Dream". Her grasp of the subject matter at age nine makes this even more poignant. Her delivery is haunting. - TrancasV 1 Comment
Love the song my dad was so so mean to me and he used to play the song for me all the time I would yell at him for playing it but now I play it all the time it reminds me of him I cry when ever I hear it
I almost cried all day when I first heard this song... this song is about the story of eminem.. everybody plz plz hear this song - shuvro
I literally cried the first time I heard this. The first song I had ever heard by him was Real slim shady. And the song was great but it left an impression on me that he was into fun songs. It was the only song I had ever heard until my friend came over for a sleep over and played the song. It was so good that the girls slept in another room because I was just playing the song over and over again. - dipperpinesfangirl618
Hailie should be lucky to have a great father like Eminem. 8/10V 7 Comments
I voted this song because it shouldn't be on 60.
Should be way up, the starting of the song is like nothing else in the whole list.V 4 Comments
Seriously! People please listen to the songs because this is just amazing undoubtedly the saddest song EVER! Nobody can disagree with this listen to it... And if you understand the story you'll see what I am talking about...
Makes me miss my ex whom I still love so much. Brings tears to my eyes it still hurts to be without her and my daughter. She stays in my mind.
Love this song but it's so sad and makes your eyes get teary and since I am still in love with the one who isn't anymore it just makes me sad
This song reminds me of a friend that moved away a long time ago. I cared about her so much, and I never got to say goodbye. When I heard this song for the first time it reminded me of how much it hurt...V 4 Comments
This song explains what I am going through at school right now
This song is actually very sad when you listen to it/watch the video, but it's been ruined by the popular meme made of it. Still, it's a very beautiful song at it's core.
How could this happen to me?
Great song. Very depressing especially the video. But still brilliant
The fact that Kurt wrote this song from his actual life experiences makes it ever more saddening. He saw himself, As I often do, As his family's "Something In The Way" That ruined everything for them. God Bless You Kurt Cobain :'(
The rhythm is very depressing, especially the bass line and "It's ok to eat fish, cause they don't have any feelings"...
Sigh... I just listed to it right now saddest song yet by nirvana and I would have to also say 2nd is jesus doesn't want me for a sunbeamV 2 Comments
I feel that this song is sadder than 98% of the songs on the list.
It is about the lead singer (Deryck Whibley) experiencing a brutal car crash. He said: "I got out of my car, and just felt lifelessness in the air. One of the people died instantly. When I got home, I wrote the song in minutes. I have a big empty room with a grand piano, and that helped me write the song."
I never cry during songs, but this one knowing what it was about, and the detail in this song made me teary-eyed.
I love this song so muche, and love Sum 41 just as much. I think crash has to be currently my favorite song by them.
The first time I heard this song I cried.
The song reminds me of me and a boy who couldn't get together
I've listened to a lot of sad songs but there is no songs that made me burst in tears for hours like this one. That songs has sad music. The singer's voice is heartbreaking and the meaning of the song is so sad. Up at number 1 - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
Evanescence's Amy Lee has a versatile voice just like Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. One thing more, I haven't seen a LP song on this list yet.
I didn't know she covered Evanescence?
Brings back memories for people who graduated to this song.
This isn't a sad song. It is a really bitter song. Please learn song meanings before putting them on a list. Sorry if I came off rude. I love this song though.
I want this to be played at my graduation.
This song makes me so happy and sadV 1 Comment
Listened to it when I was depressed, made me break down and cry. this is a very good emotional song and you can hear the pain in trent reznor's voice, which makes it even sadder.
NIN have the saddest songs of all time. Trent Reznor is a genius and he is very emotional with his songs and lyrics. got me through some hard times. Although "The Great Below" and "And All That Could Have Been" are more sad than 'Hurt'. Glad to finally see a good song on this list.
You can have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt!
Doesn't get any better (or sadder), does it?
Better than the Jonny Cash cover for sure.V 6 Comments
Is the best song, and the voice is spectacular.
I love this song. It's very sad, even with the translation. It sounds as though someone is staring at the horizon and dreaming of things that could have been; they could have sailed on "ships across seas" but it's too late to do that now.
Beautiful voice. That of an angel.
This song was a big heart break it was about a couple who have been together for a while finally call it off and think it is time to say goodbye and to find someone else. There is No one who can sing this song with great emotion then Andrea bocelli and Sarah Brightman! Wow what a great duo!

The reason this song is sad is that they're talking about a former band member by the name of Syd Barrett who left the band because of increasingly worse mental issues. He had schizophrenia, and lived as a recluse in his mother's basement for forty years. Ironically, he wandered into the studio that Pink Floyd was recording in, while they were playing this song. this was also his last encounter with the band. - ikedrums
It is so sad. You guys probably haven't ever really thought about the lyrics.
Best song ever. This should easily be in the top 10.V 2 Comments
