Top 10 Most Emotional Pop Songs

Yes for once I'm not making a rock music list, one thing I've always liked doing is experimenting. Regardless if you like that or not I think doing the same kind of list gets old after a while. So this is a attempt to spice things up I guess. Pop has to be the most overhated genre on this site and it does have a few emotional songs. I'm not ranking based on which one's more popular or which is one better. Rather by how emotional they really are. Pop rock bands are allowed even pop punk bands to I suppose.
The Top Ten
1 S.O.S D'un Terrien En Détresse - Dimash Kudaibergen

Dimash sang this song and always blow me away. His beautiful and angelic voice so comforted and healed my soul.

This is the most incredible talent among the singers of the younger generation.

Dimash the greatest singer of our generation bringing every song on new level

This aria/song is literally a plea for help for one's lost soul. Dimash's version takes the plaintive lyrics to a whole new level as his performance delves into its inner most meaning deeply touching the heart and soul of each and every listener in the most unexpected ways. Even if you already knew of this song, Dimash's performance takes the listener in a New deeply private and personal emotional journey. Just listen to it and see if you can listen without getting goosebumps from the experience!

2 Someone Like You - Adele

This is absolutely her saddest song! It's beautiful and really shows her beautiful vocals! This is my favorite of all of her songs next to Skyfall️.

This is a good and emotional song.

I think this song is the most emotional song she has ever done and should be higher on this list

3 Praying - Kesha

I swear on my life I knew this would be on this list. Plus, it's a very emotional, Wondeful, and powerful song!

I hated Kesha but this song really did change my opinion on her.

If you don't like Kesha, listen to this song, it'll change your opinion completely.

The story behind it

4 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

This is one of the only songs I listen to from her, and I just adore it! It's a beautiful (pun not intended) song that everyone should listen to.

Especially her vocals which are the most emotional.

5 Irvine - Kelly Clarkson

Wow, this song is really sad.

6 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

This song is amazing. The background music and Chris Martin's voice are definitely emotional.
In general, I like listening to this song.

the emotions in this are so powerful... makes everything "the king" felt course through you so strongly, the music integrates with the vocals so strongly, makes your emotions rocket up and down like a roller coaster, one of the most beautiful songs ever to Grace the earth. It's a story of life and death, triumph and sadness, righteousness and revolution... amazing. I'm speechless every time I hear this amazing song

Me and my dad used to listen to this song all the time, it makes me cry when I listen to it now. (Age 12 when writing this. Birthday July 4th, 2008)

Not a big Coldplay fan but this song has vocals that are very emotional and powerful in this song.

7 7 Years - Lukas Graham

I remember listening to this song when I was 9, when this was a hit back in 2016. I am writing this in 2021, and this brings back soooo many positive memories

This, for me, is really emotional because it takes me back years before now, when I was carefree.

It's like his career is shattering and here comes one of the biggest hits of 2016.

This should be in the top five!

8 Careless Whisper - Wham!
9 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

Kelly is one of the best pop stars ever! This song is really sad, but it's sung beautifully.

10 Say Something - A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
The Contenders
11 Hurt - Christina Aguilera

I can't believe I had to scroll all of the way down to 38! This song comes close to putting me in tears every time I hear it, and that says a lot because there are only a few songs that can do that, so for me personally, it is definitely the saddest pop song and the second saddest ever.

Why is Dimash Kudaibergen first? Those people who voted for him never heard this song.

12 I Still Believe - Brenda K. Starr
13 When We Were Young - Adele

I don't care for Adele that much but this hits close to home for me.

Adele's voice is great in this.

Emotional song indeed!

Love this song

14 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
15 Frozen - Madonna

Madonna is amazing! The lyrics of "frozen" are very deep & meaningful! Madonna has a beautiful of frozen is superb!

16 Goodbye - Avril Lavigne
17 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

To be honest all these famous music are mostly meh, this are popularity vote..
I can name more emotional music from my country and you'll probably never heard the name of my country

The most emotional pop song I've ever heard and her vocals prove how emotional it really is.

Adele's songs are generally emotional, but this one is probably the most powerful.

It would be better if Adele wasn't singing it.

18 Til It Happens to You - Lady Gaga
19 When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars

Yes. Says how he wished he treated her better, and hopes that she would at least be happy with the other guy. Sincerely, Fox the Rogue

20 From the Bottom of My Broken Heart - Britney Spears

My pop princess

21 Oh Father - Madonna
22 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

Reminds me of my life.

This is kinda rap

Come on its super sad I actually was crying and when I heard it, I told my parents I love them

23 Piece by Piece (Idol Version) - Kelly Clarkson
24 Run - Nicole Scherzinger
25 Take a Bow - Madonna
