Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 11

201 The Dance - Garth Brooks

This song was played at my grandfathers funeral, reminds me of him so much he used to sing it all the time.. Garth brooks you are my hero! Makes me cry a lot listing to this song, so emotional..

I'm not even a huge fan of country, but this song resonates with me like no other song does

202 Behind These Hazel Eyes - Kelly Clarkson
203 Can You Hear Me - Missy Elliott
204 In the Ghetto - Elvis Presley
205 4 Seasons of Loneliness - Boyz II Men
206 Two for Tragedy - Nightwish

Nightwish has the most beautiful ballads that I have ever heard. Their style is different, some might call it odd, but give this song a chance, you'll be surprised. It's full of emotion, it's soft, and yet so strong. It speaks of death in a painfully beautiful way that leaves you numb and speechless. Other recommended songs are Dead Boy's Poem, Sleeping Sun and Deep Silent Complete.

207 Sometime Around Midnight - The Airborne Toxic Event
208 Ruin - Luna Mortis
209 Don't You Forget About Me - Enrique Iglesias
210 Sleep Alone - Moby V 1 Comment
211 Day After Day - Badfinger
212 Breath of Heaven - Amy Grant
213 Till Kingdom Come - Coldplay

I love this song. It's not really sad, but it gives me tears of hope all the same.

214 Ill Mind of Hopsin 7 - Hopsin
215 The Scientist - Coldplay

This song is so sad. Had me in tears the first time I heard it. The simplistic nature of it is so beautiful. An underrated song for sure.

Beautiful written... Tells a story about regretting the mistakes of the past and wanting to go back to the start. I cry every time I listen to it. So surprised this isn't in the top 20.

Couldn't find it on the list so I decided to add it. This song is incredibly well written, and the piano and guitar go together perfectly. One of the best songs of all time.

Now this is sad

Voted the most depressing songs ever. The Lyrics is so true. Whatever we do in life, one thing is certain - we are all dust in the wind...

Buckley is the best musician to walk this earth. Lover is amazing lyrically and brings a tear to my eye every time. He speaks from the soul with everything he does.
