24 I Tried - Bone-Thugs-N-harmony I Tried - Bone-Thugs-N-harmony

I love bone thugs n harmony even though it's an oldie song in my eyes it means more to me and I'm 11 years old

I can't believe "that crossroads" isn't in top ten! This list is wrong as hell!

25 See My Tears - Machine Gun Kelly See My Tears - Machine Gun Kelly

Such an emotionally inspiring song. Touches my heart every time.

So depressing. My life in a nutshell.

27 The Crossroads - Bone Thugs-n-Harmony The Crossroads - Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

Yeah! Didn't expect this song so high but my faith restored! This was my jam!

The video messed me up as a child.

The Eminem dickriders are the reason why this is so low on the list.

Great song! Eminem expresses the love and gratitude for his daughter! Just plain beautiful!

Only hailie song I like

29 Too Deep for the Intro - J. Cole

A really sad Eminem song about fame and drugs.

32 Dead and Gone - T.I. Dead and Gone - T.I.

Everything & everyone will eventually be dead & gone. Depressing & sad yes but that's how it it.

This is also almost the saddest song Justin Timberlake has ever made. - Sjinkiie

34 My Life - The Game My Life - The Game

Love this song but if you want to hear more sad songs by him listen to bloody moon bonus track, monsters in my head and some others

This song should be number one. My Life by the game packs so much behind it, absolutely amazing.

Music video is sad. Lyrics are emotional as well

35 I Miss My Homies - Master P I Miss My Homies - Master P
36 Norm Ender - Son Uyku
37 Beautiful Pain - Eminem Beautiful Pain - Eminem

One of the saddest Eminem song I've heard...

38 Tearz - Wu Tang Clan Tearz - Wu Tang Clan

RZA's verse is what makes this song way more depressing than you would expect. Not just because of the death of his brother, witch is already depressing enough on it's own, but because of the way he presents the story. Like when he doesn't want to say that his brother is dead, so he stops and yells AW MAN!. But the really haunting part is his voice, because it doesn't sound sad or anything like that, it sounds like ha has difficulty breathing and like he is losing his mind, or has already gone insane, and the part where you can really notice that is when he starts laughing like a maniac for a moment. Oh and the song might just have the best production for a depressing track ever!

39 Going Through Changes - Eminem Going Through Changes - Eminem

Why isn't this in the top 10? I think it's better than mocking bird if you looked into the lyrics you'd actually cry or something no matter what I'd never stop listening to this

The lyrics are really emotional. In the song, he raps about how he lost his friend Proof, and despite the fact that he divorced with Kim, he would still do anything for her. - ethanmeinster
