181 Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely - Backstreet Boys

This is Backstreet probably at its best. A heart touching song that will surely take you to another world of your own... A must track to be included in the list.

What's make this song special is that every one understand it in his way

It is sad in a way. The boys dedicated this to Denniz Pop. I dedicate this song to my late dog Milton and cat Lily and 3 of my grandparents.

This is pretty awesome and touching. How could you people skip this track!

This song makes me cry every time I hear it

186 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

Such a heartfelt song. Truly lovely!

But is it Sad?. It's inspirational and admirable that someone would express such caring in Such a beautiful way. - Billyv

Underrated as hell. So fracking sad

187 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

This is the saddest song ever, it describes my feelings so well sometimes, even though Priest are known for their heavy sounding songs their ballads are also beautiful. - IronMaidenFan666

A suicide song. Of course it's very sad. - Metal_Treasure

188 Breathe Me - Sia

Probably one of the most underrated songs there is. This song is not only very inspirational but it's also very moving and very touching. It makes me think about my life and my choices. Please give this song a chance.

This is the saddest song ever! You can hear her voice breaking in some parts since she was going through a very hard time when she wrote this song, it is about her dealing with depression and addiction. I think it should be way higher!

so sad, the piano piece and her voice, it's all so good. LISTEN TO IT! - timone150

This song is literally one of the most painfully sad songs I've ever heard. It's amazing. It will make you feel things you'd forgotten you could.

189 Stay Together for the Kids - Blink-182

I'm a kid with divorced parents. Divorce affects the child more than they realize. While the parents get to get remarried to someone they love, live in one place, and carry on with their life, the child is forced to call people they don't love mom and dad, live in two different houses with two different beds, and be forced to chose between parents in many cases. This breaks my heart, my childhood was shattered due to their mistake, that they could never fix. This song says it all to me. Makes me cry every time I hear it.

it's about one person in the band parents divorce

- Hylologic

190 Final Masquerade - Linkin Park

Yeah Best song AFTER Until Its Gone
