Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 These Are the Days of Our Lives - Queen

This song always makes me cry... Because it makes me think that time is running out and nothing can be returned... And sooner or later we all must die.

Maybe a goodbye song but very emotional

The saddest Queen song ever made. - aldwych94

Yep. - BlazenSpirit

222 Dust in the Wind - Kansas

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...

This song makes me cry each time

This doesn't sound sad


223 The Christmas Shoes - NewSong

Such an amazing song. Saddest song for Christmas. He wants his mom to look good if she meets Jesus that night. (dies)

One of the worst Christmas songs of all time, but also one of the saddest. Don't believe me? Just go listen to it. - Scorpio

When I hear this song it makes me cry so I think of silly words

224 Lover, You Should Have Come Over - Jeff Buckley

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.

225 I Miss You - Blink 182

This is actually more sad than most of the songs on top of this. The instrumental sounds very beautiful and emotional, that piano part makes this song sadder than most. And the singers show tons of strong emotion in this, they actually sound depressed and down. And the lyrics are about missing a person that you loved, making it relatable to many real life cases in which a person misses someone who died, lives far away, or left you. Should be in the top ten. - AnimeDrawer

Damn 458 seriously

226 All by Myself - Eric Carmen

Yep a song by a desperate person. Its sad when there's no one besides you

I legitimately thought it said "Eric Cartman." - 445956

How is this in 225th place?! - Ari00

227 Into the Ocean - Blue October
228 I Know It's Over - The Smiths

Sorry but the line 'Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head' is most probably the saddest lyric ever.
I can't believe a Smiths song isn't on the list!
This song is simply heartbreaking: 'If you're so very good looking, why do you sleep alone tonight? ' 'Cause tonight is just like any other night, that's why you're on your own tonight'

Genuinely sad, unlike many of the dull dirges on here.

229 Incomplete - Backstreet Boys

Man! This song must be in the top 20...

230 All I Need - Radiohead
231 Kim - Eminem

Kim isn't SADNESS it's ANGER

232 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
233 Eternal Flame - The Bangles
234 Fix a Heart - Demi Lovato
235 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
236 Enchanted - Taylor Swift

It's one of her best songs, it's just not sad.

237 I Care 4 U - Aaliyah
238 High Water Mark - Iced Earth
239 You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - The Righteous Brothers
240 Gone - *NSYNC

I just love how slow this song is then will suddenly go faster and faster it plays with your emotions so much.. - JR619
