Saddest Eminem Songs

The Top Ten
1 When I'm Gone When I'm Gone Cover Art

Always singing about his family, and how much he loves them. What music should really be about

This is a very sad story telling song but it at least has a happy ending

If there's on song by Eminem that puts me in my feels it's this one

Great song he always talks about child he a real family man

2 Stan Stan Cover Art

Best sad song I've ever heard never get tired of it been listening so much after my friend showed me it and pasted away not to long ago rest in peace

Almost cried

The best story telling In a song ever.

Absolutely the saddest song I have ever heard

3 Mockingbird Mockingbird Cover Art

This has been the only song that mad me cry after him talking about death and his own daughter from him wanting to die from his fault

This is the saddest song Eminem every made How in the world Stan is above Mockingbird I don't know but this is the saddest song.

Every time I listen to this song, I have a box of tissues at the ready

This is literally one of the saddest songs by eminem. He talks to his daughter about his life mostly before fame and how much he tries to be a good father, and it almost made me cry.

4 Difficult

If everyone knew and actually listened to this song before, it would definitely be #1. This song is about his best friend from childhood that died. I just listened to it too lol but before I listened to it I thought that there was no way that this song could be sadder than mockingbird, but I was wrong.

Unlike When I'm Gone this song has no happy ending its just pure devastation but most people never heard if it because it is an unreleased track but it can be found on bad meets evil the shady project the song is about proofs death R.I. P big proof

This is the saddest song Eminem ever wrote. It wasn't even meant to be released - It shows that Em did this for himself and that he actually uses music as a release.

This really should be number one, and it would be if everyone had heard it, but not many people have becuase it was a leaked song

5 Beautiful Beautiful Cover Art

This should be number one or at least When I'm Gone, you could really feel his emotion in this song.

A great song to be honest, its hard in feels

Lots of emotion in this one

Song from relapse album

6 Like Toy Soldiers Like Toy Soldiers Cover Art

I don't understand how people comment things that aren't even true, and you could easily find the right answer with a google search. Never even heard this song but it's NOT taking about PROOF'S death. It's talking about a man named BUGZ who died in 1999, the song being released in 2005. For real people...

The music video made me tear up. That's progress, because I NEVER cry! How is this Number 7?

This song has a great meaning its about proofs death and the events that lead to it

How can it be about proofs death if it was made two years before he died? smh

7 Cleanin' Out My Closet Cleanin' Out My Closet Cover Art

Song from the Eminem show album

8 Rock Bottom Rock Bottom Cover Art

This song tops Stan in sadness because you feel this is what Marshall actually went through. At least in my opinion

This is one of the most devastating rap song if all time Eminem sounds hopeless about money troubles

100% the saddest song in hip hop history!

Song from slim shady lp

9 Lose Yourself Lose Yourself Cover Art

Woah, lose yourself isn't sad, is it?

not sad

This Is Not Sad At All

10 Headlights Headlights Cover Art

I thought that Eminem would never say that he was sorry to Debbie Mathers (He even said her name and felt guilty after all of the shade he through at her.), but I spoke too soon. I literally cried on the first time I listened to this.

I truly love this song! This song actually has a purpose instead of a stupid song. The song is about an apology to his mom *cough* Cleaning Out My Closet *cough*

Saddest song I heard I cried the first time I heard some reason it touches my heart

None of the songs above are even CLOSE to how sad this song is. None of the ones above made me cry. This one did.

The Contenders
11 Going Through Changes Going Through Changes Cover Art

I cannot believe that this song is in 12th place on this list. It is literally one of the saddest things he has written. The music, the emotion, the delivery and the melancholy you can hear in his voice are almost incomparable to any other song he has released. He talks about what he has been through, the changes he went through, and the impact of fame on his personal life and the relations with his friends, daughter, and ex-wife. It is a story that would make anyone with a tiny bit of emotion tear up or sit for a moment and think.

Easily that saddest song he has. Finds a way to rap about all the bad stuff that’s happened to him, and makes it relatable to anybody (which is a true gift to do).

In this song Eminem states a variety of the saddest things that have happened to him

Real artist, one can feel his sadness through the song

12 Arose

This song made me cry so many times! Something that separates Em from most artists is his willingness to sink into a dark and painful place within himself so the emotion is raw

A feeling of fulfillment for core fans.

This song makes me feel things. The words hit me and makes me cry.

I cried listening to this and castle

13 Space Bound Space Bound Cover Art

I can't in any way relate to this song but it makes me cry. It's so sad.

This song should be higher on the list.

Bro, I'm in tears just reading the song title

This is one of the greatest Eminem love songs ever

14 Hailie's Song Hailie's Song Cover Art

He sure does think he owes his fame to his daughter

15 The Way I Am The Way I Am Cover Art

Be honest, when someone is willing to accept that what ever you say he is, is what he is, must be totally beaten down. The meaning behind this song passes over the head of most listeners.

16 No Apologies No Apologies Cover Art
17 Love the Way You Lie Love the Way You Lie Cover Art

This is one of my favourite songs ever.

This is so sad. Why is mockingbird higher this song is one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard

Ok how is this so low. Have you seen the video. Yeah When I’m gone is sad but I never cried with mockingbird and that’s number 3. This is such a sad song that I wonder why it’s so low down. It used to always make me cry

18 You're Never Over You're Never Over Cover Art

Honest talk, brutal if you understand the words.

Great song

19 Sing for the Moment Sing for the Moment Cover Art

Talks about real life issues without a father

This song is hard to listen to. It's so good, yet so relatable

god tier

20 Kim Kim Cover Art

Actually insanely depressing. Look up the lyrics

The most depressing song for couples that broke up

Best ever lyrical genius
don't trust bitches its what he says

21 Fack Fack Cover Art

So beautiful. It talks about depression, pure emotion, financial difficulties, substance difficulties, his daughter Hailie, and everything of the above. It definitely doesn't talk about sex fetishes and shoving gerbils up one another ass, just no. It's such a beautiful song, and should be number 1. Who here agrees with me? /s

This is so damn beautiful. Put Stan and when I'm gone together and you wouldn't be able to top this masterpiece. 10/10.. Em I'm in tears.

Drove me to tears while listening to this at my grandpa's funeral

Tragic and emotional. Gorgeous song.

22 Legacy Legacy Cover Art

"I had a bad day at school, so I ain't talking...", I always listen to this song after a bad day at school or just a bad day in general

Talks about bullying and bad home life, hits home hard

23 Deja Vu Deja Vu Cover Art

The chorus says it all.

A blood

24 Stronger Than I Was Stronger Than I Was Cover Art

Honestly I didn’t like the lyrics to this song, they were sort of weak. - Temporary_

This song is just as sad as a funeral song I can't stop crying when I hear it but the problem is that this is also the most underrated Eminem song ever have a heart people at least it has a meaning

Man this song is just unreal

This sympathetic song provides an insight into Eminem’s relationship with ex-wife Kim, and how he apologizes for acting how he did towards her particularly on The Marshall Mathers LP 1. It’s the polar opposite of the track “Kim” from the original MMLP.
