Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
This song is perfect from the intertwined duets of voices and piano to the lyrics. It makes you want to stare at everything in wide eyed wonder. A musical version of the book "Sophie's World". It was used in the trailer for "The Lovely Bones"
It makes me feel somewhat isolated, very haunting.
Yes, another Elliott Smith song. I had to put this on here because of the piano at the beginning, if not for anything else. It makes you feel like you are spinning and slowly falling as he wraps you up in the lyrically brilliant song.
If you never heard this song, listen to it then listen to the disturbed cover.
Quite simply, one of the best songs ever written.
Hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking
When my grandmother passed away, I listened to this song and I couldn't stop crying. Beautiful song
A great song, the melody pulls you in and the lyrics tell a sad but beautiful story of loss.

This is the best song I've ever heard. Kate's voice, the lyrics, the chorus, the guitar, piano, violin; it's all perfect. This song does get better each time you listen to it.
In my opinion, there's nothing more haunting than this song.
Tragic and haunting this song is so unique.
Awesome song. Sounds great and brings great imagery. I picture walking through the snowy woods in dead silence. If you're not a screamo fan however, I wouldn't recommend trying to find similar songs from this artist.
The book expresses the meaning of the song but Jennifer's voice brings so much more meaning.
It is amazing, beautiful and emotional
Jackie singing this gets me every time.
When Jackie sang this on talkshows, even the show hosts were in tears.
Not one of their better known songs, off one of their less popular albums. Spaced is from the album Pisces Iscariot and is like a build up that never ends. Just the dizzying sensation of drums, slow guitar and Billy Corgan's distorted voice. A great song to go to sleep to, in a good way.
