Top 10 Most Emotional Buckethead Songs

The Top Ten
1 I Love My Parents

I can really feel the sadness of losing my parents when I listen to this song, even though they are still alive. It's almost as if Buckethead's emotions transfer onto me, like the life he has lived and what he has been through. It honestly brought me to tears.

Glad to see this list. Some people say Slash is better because he has more emotion in his songs/solos. While Buckethead just keeps shredding for hours. They probably have never tried Buckethead's songs.

2 Sail on Soothsayer

It's almost like I can feel his sadness while writing this piece.

This is his saddest song. He wrote it after his Aunt Susie died.

It's the most gut-wrenching piece of music out there.

3 Big D's Touch

The first time I heard this song, it took me somewhere. Somewhere I had never been before. Quite honestly, many of Buckethead's songs take me places, but there are only a handful that bring me to that place every time. Big D's Touch is the one that is guaranteed to put me in a mindset, and it feels somehow relatable without actually saying anything. It speaks without words. Buckethead truly is a master of the language of music.

Melody at its best.

4 Soothsayer

Laugh out loud, why wasn't this song on the list? Somewhere in the big solo, he bends more emotionally than Slash in November Rain.

Without this one, the "bucket of emotions" is 50% empty.

5 A Real Diamond in the Rough
6 Padmasana

Very deep and touching guitar arrangement by Buckethead. It is simply incredible how he can come and go, based on the same riff. His soloing in this song is one of the best and shows how good and talented Buckethead is. And above all, it touches me and changes my emotion every single time I listen to it.

This song was number 4 on my top 10 Buckethead song list, and I would probably put it at number 2 on this list. But there are only one or maybe two parts that are really emotional, but it's still a really great and pretty song.

If you are searching for Buckethead's emotional songs, then Padmasana must definitely be your first choice (but everyone has their own choice, so I have mine ;) ). Second best: I Love My Parents.

7 Separate Sky
8 Allowed to Play
9 Final Wars
10 Raindrops on Christmas (This Song is Dedicated to Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones)

I thought these songs were going to be sad. Here is my top ten that would make a grown man cry: starting with Cavernous, The Mermaid Stairwell, All in the Waiting, Dawn Appears, Left Panel, Padmasana, Miracle of Surrender, Broken Mirrors. Cavernous will play at my funeral, along with some others.

The Contenders
11 Heart's Delight
12 The Left Panel

I'm going to have this played at my funeral. In fact, I'm making a playlist starting with Dawn Appears. I'd like to find out the names of the songs on Relaxing Mix. There are seven of them.

This is Buckethead's saddest song. It makes me feel like I'm at a funeral.

13 Hornet Part 1
14 Watching the Boats with My Dad

Beautiful song. Very underrated.

15 Siege Engine
16 Too Many Humans
17 Wondering
18 City of Woe
19 Coffin for a Penny
20 Rise of the Blue Lotus
21 The Miracle of Surrender
22 She Sells Sea Shells By the Slaughterhouse

Originally on Bermuda Triangle (2002), this song has a very melodic solo - very good.

23 Wishing Well

I'm sick, so on the day of my funeral, I am picking out four hours of sad songs from B.H. I call them my visitation songs.

24 Ghost

I just love this song. It's beautiful to listen to.
