Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 13

241 Scarborough Fair / Canticle - Simon & Garfunkel
242 When the Music's Over - The Doors
243 The Show Must Go On - Queen

Freddie Mercury recorded this song when he was terminally ill. Other mediocre men would just give up and enjoy the last of their days But not Freddie Mercury, with barely the strength to even walk took the stand and did any ways. Listen closely to his vocal runs at the end of the song, it's almost painful to hear. It's the sound of the great Freddie Mercury ignoring the pain to deliver one last masterpiece for the world. It's not the song that is saddening, it's the fact that it's the last song Freddie Mercury sang that made it so saddening. Every time you listen to this song, be reminded that this is his last gift to the world, his last message to the world.

RIP this song doesn't need lyrics in itself freddie's vocals show his pain and grief while sending a good message stick at it the show must go on rip freddie

Oh my God. I just listened to this song, and I have a tear in my eye. He's saying that he would never give up and wants to keep going even under the circumstances he is going through. He loves the world. The world needs to show more love for Freddie. I love you Freddie.
Long Live Queen. Long Live Freddie Mercury.

This song must be in the top 20 at least - malamJONES

244 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
