Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Into the Ocean - Blue October
222 No One But You - Queen

A very sad song dedicated to the greatest frontmen in music history

The sad song, dedicated to greatest frontmen ever... just listening it, to the words and knowing that Freddie is there, but not singing...

223 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.

224 All I Need - Radiohead
225 In This World - Moby

Saddest song of all time, with a really emotional music video. You cannot argue with the music video, it really makes you think and makes you cry.

Wow, I love this song. It's so unbelievably sad, though, and the music video is even sadder. I recommend it. - PositronWildhawk

226 Kim - Eminem

Kim isn't SADNESS it's ANGER

227 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
228 Eternal Flame - The Bangles
229 Fix a Heart - Demi Lovato
230 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
231 Enchanted - Taylor Swift

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

232 I Care 4 U - Aaliyah
233 High Water Mark - Iced Earth
234 You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - The Righteous Brothers
235 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
