Most Hauntingly Beautiful and Sad Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Silent Lucidity - Queesnryche

If you haven't heard it, then make it a point to listen to it.

Amazing song. Makes me cry every time I hear it.

122 Don't Speak - No Doubt
123 Everything I Own - Bread
124 Atmosphere - Joy Division

Lugubrious and slow, with killer instrumentals

125 Solitaire - Carpenters
126 Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin
127 Medicine - Daughter V 1 Comment
128 Something In the Way - Nirvana

The lyrics in the song are "It's okay to eat fish, cause they don't have any feelings." This is a reference to the fact that Kurt Cobain was a Pisces and always thought the world was against him. Once I heard that, the song became a million times better for me.

It is about homelessness. It is the most haunting song I've ever heard.

129 Hallelujah - Peter Hollens and Jackie Evancho
130 Everything's Alright - Laura Shigihara

This song is from To the Moon, the only thing in the media which has ever made me properly cry.

131 In the Cold Light of Morning - Placebo
132 Lover, Please Stay - Nothing But Thieves
133 Life Will Go On - Chris Isaak
134 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne

I cried a thousand times listening to this song

135 Bittersweet - Within Temptation

The sweet flute gives you the chills. It's so beautiful, I cry every time I listen to it. Such a shame it's underrated. I recommend people listen to it. - MillieTrina_Prower

136 Hello - Adele
137 A Place Only You Can Go - Needtobreathe
138 Happiness - Hurts

This entire album is a work of art! I listen to this all the time, Stay and Sunday are just brilliant!
