Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 17

321 Over the Love - Florence + the Machine
322 Missing - Arcadia

Beautiful and haunting in death.

323 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.

324 The Host of Seraphim - Dead Can Dance
325 Mer Girl - Madonna

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

326 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue
327 Almost a Kiss - Throbbing Gristle
328 Lara's Theme - Maurice Jarre
329 Stone Cold - Demi Lovato

Stone cold by Demi Lovato sounds super creepy

330 Everytime - Britney Spears
331 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.

332 Seven Devils - Florence and the Machine

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

333 Thousand Eyes - of Monsters and Men

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

334 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.

335 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Rolling Stones

It's a song about a guy who can't get laid. There is nothing more sad.

336 So Cold - Toby Fox
337 Betrayal - Akira Yamaoka
338 Someone Saved My Life Tonight - Elton John
339 Here With Me - Dido
340 Ooh Baby Baby - Linda Ronstadt
