Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Goshen - Beirut
302 The Second Waltz - Dmitri Shostakovich

Dour flavors intermingle with a gently vibrant disturbance... very pulchritudinous...

303 Arsonist's Lullabye - Hozier
304 Twenty Eight - The Weeknd

This song can be interpreted so many ways but the way I see it as a man is lonely and let a girl in and he doesn't see her as her one and only like he thought she would be. The part where I cry is when he says "i'm so wrong, to let you sleep in my room.. Never felt so damn weak. Also his voice is probably the best voice I've ever heard

305 If You Say So - Lea Michele

SHe wrote this song 7 days after Cory Monteith died and I don't think it needs much more explaining than that.. She remembers her last conversation with him

306 Over the Love - Florence + the Machine
307 Missing - Arcadia

Beautiful and haunting in death.

308 Stay - Shakespear's Sister

Song about a woman whose lover is in a coma. She's begging him to return to her in the real world but he is being held back by, What I think, death herself. This song always gives me goosebumps when I listen to it.

309 The Host of Seraphim - Dead Can Dance
310 Mer Girl - Madonna

The last track on Madonna's 'Ray of Light' gets right under your skin...

311 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue
312 Almost a Kiss - Throbbing Gristle
313 Lara's Theme - Maurice Jarre
314 Stone Cold - Demi Lovato

Stone cold by Demi Lovato sounds super creepy

315 Everytime - Britney Spears
316 Dead Boy's Poem - Nightwish

Beautiful and sad. One of their best songs, though massively underrated.

Never sigh for better world, it's already composed, played and told.

317 Seven Devils - Florence and the Machine

Exceedingly haunting especially haunting, beautiful, and best of all, open to your own interpretation.

318 Thousand Eyes - of Monsters and Men

Haunting, vulnerable, hopeful, and beautiful. What more could you want?

319 One - Metallica

It is truly a beautiful song, and yet horrifying and depressing all at the same time. When you dig into the lyrics and meaning of the song, you will see it really is an amazing, hauntingly beautiful song.

320 So Cold - Toby Fox
