Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 15

281 Looking In - Mariah Carey

It is a very beautiful song, but the music sounds so sad.

Beautiful, Carey shows her sadness

282 Solo - Jason Chen
283 Darkness - Disturbed

Why is this so low on the list?!?

284 Let Her Go - Passenger

The person that wrote before me is tone deaf I think this song is great

Honestly, this song is SO overplayed, and its annoying. Just saying.

285 The Noose - A Perfect Circle

This song starts out with some faint guitar sound, slowly crescendoing and then Maynard's vocals kick in. His lyrics are very meaningful in a way. The last part of the song where the guitar sound gets bigger is complemented by the "halo slippin down" lyrics, which convey a sad, deadly feeling. - NuMetalManiak

286 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Through the whole 7 minutes, you hear in every part of the song, lots of sadness. Starting out with the guitar riff that forebodes a feeling of loneliness to it. Myles vocals kick in, and they are low (in terms of pitch) to complement the sadness. When it picks up at the chorus, its lyrics ask for the titular blackbird to fly away, biding farewell. The song's guitar solo creates a sad embrace as well. At the end, the same guitar riff as the beginning plays, closing the song just how it started. Very sad song indeed, and actually dedicated to a man named Mark Morse. - NuMetalManiak

287 Why - Rascal Flatts

It's about a kid who committed suicide. This is an extremely sad song.

288 A Thousand Years - Christina Perri

It is the song of doing what you hate one last time before fnishing horror. - AnonymousChick

292 Fields of Gold - Eva Cassidy
293 Room of Angel - Akira Yamaoka

It's so depressing... But very beautiful...

That's a sad song! Because it's telling your lover that you want him or her lying in your arms so that you're in heaven! :'(

295 Three Wooden Crosses - Randy Travis
296 (Can't Believe) This Is Me - Jennifer Lopez
297 Again - Janet Jackson

Amazingly beautiful song! I'm not a Spice Girls fan. Some of their songs are so silly but "Viva Forever" is masterpiece! The Fact!

300 Sail on Soothsayer - Buckethead

This song is so sad that it's made me vomit. He wrote after his Aunt Suzie died from 1932-2007. - Gigan
