Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 14

261 Walk Away - Geri Halliwell

The most under-estimated sad song ever! You guys should listen to this wonderful song immediately.
Very touching - Magnolia

262 Ten Years Gone - Led Zeppelin
263 This Is My Story, This Is My Life - Sicktanick
264 Amsterdam - Coldplay
265 Casimir Pulaski Day - Sufjan Stevens

This song is about a person who is bitter about God due to the fact that his friend had died of leukemia.

266 The Wind Blows - The All-American Rejects
267 The Forgotten - Green Day V 2 Comments
268 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5
269 Hate That I Love You - Rihanna
270 New Slang - The Shins
271 Into the Light - In This Moment
272 Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel

Good one. Too similar to "Hero of War" which is on the top ten. Just that this is about a war that is no longer considered fresh and sadly forgotten about. History repeats itself

273 Snuff - Slipknot

How in the bloody hell is this ranked 171?! This is the saddest song I've ever heard! This song is purely beautiful. It's about a couple not wanting to breakup but they know it's for the best. My girlfriend and I have broken up several times and have gotten back together, and this song always has brung tears to my eyes in those darkest hours. This song deserves more recognition.

149!? This is the saddest song I've ever heard. The lead singers wife divorced him and now he's sad. Simple, but effective. I can relate to it cause I like this girl but she doesn't like me back, but I can't hate her. That's how he feels too.

This song is just pure beautiful genius written by Corey Taylor, it's so full of emotion and the song I listen to every time I get rejected by a girl (all the time)

Listen to it carefully before u blindly consider other songs sad

274 Last Song - Gackt

Far saddest song.. You need to read english lyrics! He is best artist, no no HE is Good - Lucius

So damn sad and beautiful song...

275 Bittersweet Memories - Bullet for My Valentine V 1 Comment
276 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

277 A Tout le Monde - Megadeth

Dave Mustang writes songs that could make a Vulcan cry.

I want this song played at my funeral

278 Reila - The Gazette

Definitely the saddest song I've ever heard. Really, if you haven't listened to it, you'll never know.

super sad song... makes me wanna cry - AresRed

Gorgeous and beautiful song that causes amazing feelings inside me. Touching melody, awesome voice. Thank you, the GazettE!

279 Fall for You - Secondhand Serenade

I vote it! Saddest song that I ever heard (y)

280 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.
