122 Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division

Other than already being about when Ian Curtis broke up with his wife, the fact that they played it at one of the saddest parts in Donnie Darko makes this song on of the saddest songs of all time

it's the saddest song in the whole universe. this would be number 1 only if more people knew about the band. =/

125 The Way I Loved You - Taylor Swift The Way I Loved You - Taylor Swift
126 For the Love of a Daughter - Demi Lovato For the Love of a Daughter - Demi Lovato

Such a sad song! I love her and I'll support her emotions. Her love for her father is undeniable

127 Chicken Wire - The Pernice Brothers Chicken Wire - The Pernice Brothers
128 Ayer - Enrique Iglesias Ayer - Enrique Iglesias
129 Lightning Crashes - Live Lightning Crashes - Live

The song was dedicated to Barbara Lewis, but it also held another meaning. It could have also meant something about an old mother dying while at the same time another mother gives birth to a new child in the world (a new mother cries, an old mother dies, as well as the angel opens her eyes). Truly spiritual and sad in a way. - NuMetalManiak

This is a deep and truthful view of the life cycle. It does make me cry if I indulge it.

130 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

This song truly captures the feelings of betrayal, overwhelming despair, anger and sadness that one can only hope never to experience. This song, I am certain, has been somebody's last song...

131 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
132 Lua - Bright Eyes Lua - Bright Eyes
133 Free - Sarah Brightman Free - Sarah Brightman

Sarah is the best! Thank you for giving the world your beautiful voice to hear. - debsan

this song is very haunting and at the same time uplifting. - richt63

134 Bad Girl - Madonna Bad Girl - Madonna

I cried when I saw the video. I felt sorry for Madonna's character. The song is great though

135 Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene V 2 Comments
136 Your Star - Evanescence Your Star - Evanescence

It's a soft song. I don't know why, but I always love songs with only Piano

137 Rebecca - Grieves Rebecca - Grieves
138 You Know You're Right - Nirvana You Know You're Right - Nirvana V 1 Comment
139 Ill Mind of Hopsin 6 - Hopsin
140 Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me - The Smiths Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me - The Smiths

Probably one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. It is a brilliant portrayal of what it feels likes to feel utterly unloved and lonely.
