257 Whisky Lullaby - Brad Paisley

this song is just not safe for depressed people - Dania0671

how can this not be the saddest song of all time, a man kills himself because he's not with the love of his life, and then she feels so guilty she then kills herself... so sad

'We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night'

Also a tear jerker

258 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

The song tells such a sad story. Kelly clarkson brings so much emotion to the already sad song. Makes me cry every time I sing it

This is the song that makes me cry every time I watch it and it's just so heart breaking... Poor kids.

A song about a girl that lives the experience of the problematic marriage of their parents. Such a sad song...

I heard this song not long after my cat died and I have broke into tears every time I hear this song since.

259 Say Something - A Great Big World

I cannot believe this item is not on this list yet. This song, about heartbreak, is one of the saddest I have ever heard. The music video is incredibly touching; it conveys an incredibly powerful yet sad image in the viewer's mind. Vote for this one!

This is the saddest song I've ever heard, it reminds me of my dead grandma (I just began crying now) and how she died of a stroke, I cry because it makes me wish I was a better grandson while she was alive, Extremely powerful song

This is the only song that can make me cry, should be in the top ten so more people can hear it and cry with me ;_;

I think it was the music video that made me cry.

260 When I'm Gone - Eminem

What makes this more emotional than Stan is that it's much easier to relate to. The somber story of a father getting so caught up by fame, that he is rejected by his daughter. He ultimately ends up killing himself, until he wakes up to find that it was a dream. Such a deep song from the greatest rapper of them all.

Not as good as Mockingbird, but still one of his top three saddest songs. I can't help but feel sad when I hear this song. Once you really listen to the lyrics, it makes it all the more sadder.

A very sad song by the greatest rapper... Great song, great lyrics.. Just listen to it... You will love it

This is the most depressing song of all time. This song makes me think of my girl going to college. I just cry every time I hear it
