Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Concrete Angel - Jackie Evancho

Especially haunting and riveting as sung by this young lady at age 9. From her first (and self-produced) album "Prelude To A Dream". This was released before her appearance on "America's Got Talent".

A song written about a real child who died... Doesn't get much sadder than this. - BobG

Saddest song Jackie's sung.

102 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
103 Daddy - Korn
104 Til It Happens to You - Lady Gaga
105 The A Team - Ed Sheeran
106 Civilian - Wye Oak
107 You Know I Care - Far From Eden

Definitely a very beautiful song really touches me every time I hear it, the lyrics are so meaningful and easy to relate to and chorus is also beautiful

108 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

A song with incredibly sad lyrics, mixed with an upbeat instrumental. This mix creates a shockingly powerful song about suicide.

This song is so incredible! The mix of good and bad is so powerful, it is over whelming! - cutiepiestarlight

One of the most honest songs you will ever listen to.

This is one of my favorite songs.

109 Last Kiss - J. Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers

Beautiful song one of my favorites also sang by other artist

110 White Winter Hymnal - Fleet Foxes

No doubt a beautiful song, but it's not that song, even for a song about death.

111 Big Log - Robert Plant

So sad, it tears at your emotions - only someone who has suffered can empathise with this - totally hauntingly beautiful music - could only come from a genius.

Elizabeth Childs

112 Shelter - Birdy
113 Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) - Deftones

Best band best song

114 Cut - Plumb

Okay, I'm listening to this song right now. Oh God, even sadder than Skillet's Everything Goes Black. It reminds me of a book that I'm writing. It's called, "Night At The Museum: Horns and Halos". It's where Jedediah is attacked by some group of teenagers, who had been infected with a vampire virus, and sadly, he becomes one himself.

And, you thought that "Anthem Of The Angels" by Breaking Benjamin was emotional. This song just punches you in the stomach!

Ohh, so tragic. Sadder than Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic.

This is such a sad song. It has the smooth lyrics that want to make you cry.

115 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

This song is quite underrated for such a beautiful yet haunting tale. It tells of a father telling his son about he and his mother's relationship. Eventually the mother dies of cancer, so the father tells his son never to fall in love, because he cannot bear seeing his son go through the same things he had been through. The refrain part of the song hits you VERY hard, as the metal cascade drops. This should be higher in my opinion. - MillieTrina_Prower

This song is so sad, I don't know why it's so far down on the list

116 Serenity - Resident Evil 4 Soundtrack
117 Take Me to Church - Hozier V 1 Comment
118 There is a Light that Never Goes Out - The Smiths

The Smihs - Best band of the 80s

119 All I See - Lydia

"All I see scares me... "

120 Haunted - Taylor Swift

Sorry no goose bumps to be found.

It'll give you goose bumps.

This song is probs one of my fave taylor swift songs around but hardly anyone knnows it. I wish it was more famous! - cutiepiestarlight
