Top Ten Saddest Love Songs

Whether it's a song about a recent breakup or memories of an old lover, any love song that can bring you to tears belongs on this list.

The Top Ten

Lovers - Jackie Evancho Lovers - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Even if you did not see the movie House of Flying Daggers, where the heroine is dying in the snow, with her first love and her husband already dead in the snow next to her [having killed each other with swords], and did not know that the song's final line "Your voice still echoes... in my heart" is her last dying thought, Jackie's otherworldly voice makes you feel it in your soul.

Your criteria say "any love song that can bring you to tears belongs on this list." Well, one glance at Jackie's audience after she finishes this song will justify her position here.

Gorgeous, incredible voice. This song has a magnificent a cappella part at the end where Jackie's voice soars.

She got what I wanted... her voice is perfect for this song, it hit me hard...
