Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 13

241 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
242 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.

243 Enchanted - Taylor Swift

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

244 Kim - Eminem V 1 Comment
245 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
246 I Care 4 U - Aaliyah
247 All I Need - Radiohead
248 You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - The Righteous Brothers
249 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

250 Where Do Broken Hearts Go - Whitney Houston
251 Golden - Tyler, the Creator
252 Scarborough Fair / Canticle - Simon & Garfunkel
253 This I Promise You - *NSYNC
254 When the Music's Over - The Doors
255 Old Shep - Elvis Presley

By far the saddest song ever i bet nobody has wrote a song about a dead dog ever since a lot of people get upset when they hear this iv'e heard its 4:10 long whoever can still be happy at the end of this is an absolute miricle even talking or thinking about it Actually i think that hearing this is even sadder than even losing a dog its horrible gives people nightmares but at least Elvis did do other good ones though - Greenday

You Stupid Idiot This song is sad because he kills a dog not because he's no longer around you n00b well I suppose it does make it a bit more sad but it is mainly because the dog dies - Greenday

Guys, you're only voting for the most famous sad songs. This song may be old, but it is easily sadder than anything else written except possibly Tears in Heaven and Seasons in the Sun.

It's sad, but mainly because he's no longer around... - Music
