Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Wave - Beck
302 Clocks - Coldplay
303 Emma Hartley - Dylan Leblanc

This should be on the top of this list

304 The Last Day On Earth - Marilyn Manson
305 Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
306 The Unbroken (Oc Remix) - Cave Story
307 Goshen - Beirut
308 The Second Waltz - Dmitri Shostakovich

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

309 Arsonist's Lullabye - Hozier
310 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

311 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

312 Over the Love - Florence + the Machine
313 Missing - Arcadia

Beautiful and haunting in death.

314 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.

315 The Host of Seraphim - Dead Can Dance
316 Mer Girl - Madonna

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

317 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue
318 Almost a Kiss - Throbbing Gristle
319 Lara's Theme - Maurice Jarre
320 Stone Cold - Demi Lovato

Stone cold by Demi Lovato sounds super creepy
