Saddest song I have ever heard... It should be at least 10nth!

#437? No. This is at least top 20! The emotion! The lyrics! It's amazing! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

311 Lazarus - David Bowie

This is so sad. He knew his days were numbered. The way he sounds in this song, the lyrics are amazing. This song is so sad. And the music video, don't even get me started.

This honestly was the first song in a while to make me choke up. Rip

312 Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin

Basically it's a song about a loved one dying. And not just dying. Suffering greatly, which makes it even worse. Whereas they could go quickly and painlessly, they are forced to suffer the pain until the inevitible happens. There is nothing you can do about it, and you want nothing more than to do something.

This is song about a loved one you know is dying. And they're clearly suffering. On top of that, there's nothing you can do about it. So not only are they dying, but suffering until the inevitible end. It's clear that Ben is saying that he wants to stop it, but his efforts are to no avail.

313 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
314 Drowning in Tears - Gary Moore

I am in disbelief at there being no Gary Moore songs here. Anyway, this song for me, is the saddest I have heard. It is soulful in so many ways. - wizardryuk

315 Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden
316 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

It's not the lyrics. It's just the tune and Whitney's powerful voice that makes this song sad. Rest In Peace Whitney.

Whitney's powerful voice with great emotions

So beautiful

i agree
