Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 If Only - Dove Cameron
42 Stan - Eminem

Amazing story telling from one of the best rappers, this song is like an emotional rollercoaster. You can feel the anger and hate building up and leading to an intense part that may be shocking if you listen it for the first time. The part that gets me is the last verse, when Eminem says 'Come to think about it, his name was... it was you. Damn'. Should be top 10

43 Untouchable, Pt. 2 - Anathema
44 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

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

45 Say Something - Cheyenne Jackson and Jackie Evancho

What can one say? Perfect.

From Jackie's PBS "Awakening - In Concert" special. See the YouTube VEVO video. A about a relationship headed for disaster as each party waits for the other to "Say Something". THE perfect duet.

Oh yeah, this song is a real downer. Beautifully sung by Jackie and Cheyenne live at Longwood Gardens. - BobG

46 Lost Control - Anathema
47 Dust In the Wind - Kansas

I feel like this song should be number one. No other song is as hauntingly beautiful and yet alltogether... well... haunting as this tune.

48 Space Oddity - David Bowie

I will be the first to admit that I tear up every time I hear this song. The countdown at the beginning sets you on edge for the terrible beauty that ensues. The lyrics are wonderful and yes, even the saxophone gets to you.

Just Oh my god, this, this is a beautiful song. It is sad yet intriguing yet depressing yet mystical.

İt is perfect song to describe sadness, loneliness and oblivion ))) Simple and beautiful!

49 Buy the Stars - Marina and the Diamonds
50 Louder Than Thunder - The Devil Wears Prada

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.

51 Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush

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.

52 Wide Awake - Katy Perry
53 Remember When - Avril Lavigne
54 Easy for You to Say - Linda Ronstadt
55 Farther Away - Evanescence
56 Always There - Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure
57 When She Loved Me - Sarah McLachlan

very sad

58 Alice - The Cocteau Twins

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.

59 Unravel - Bjork
60 King's Crossing - Elliott Smith

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.
