302 Again - Janet Jackson Again - Janet Jackson
303 Come Back to Me - Janet Jackson Come Back to Me - Janet Jackson
304 Viva Forever - Spice Girls Viva Forever - Spice Girls

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

305 Comatose - Skillet Comatose - Skillet

Why is this not number one it made me cry the first 20 times I listened to it and none of these songs except hello by evanescence and never too late by three days grace are even that sad

306 Paint It Black - Rolling Stones Paint It Black - Rolling Stones
307 Sail on Soothsayer - Buckethead 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

308 Darkness - Disturbed
309 Let Her Go - Passenger 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.

310 Redemption - Muse
311 Lucy - Skillet Lucy - Skillet

312... Okay, just listen to the lyrics and then tell me My Immortal is sadder.

Sadder than many of the songs on this list, I'll tell you. - LarkwingFlight

312 Wide Awake - Katy Perry Wide Awake - Katy Perry
313 Con Te Partiro - Jackie Evancho

Another song Jackie has been singing since age 8, and repeated at her concert with David Foster at the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas, in a marvelous duet with soprano Sumi Jo in Palace Square, St. Petersburg, Russia in 2012, and in her concert with the great tenor José Carreras in Taiwan in 2013. - Trancas

314 Sally's Song - Catherine O'Hara Sally's Song - Catherine O'Hara
315 Nightswimming - R.E.M. Nightswimming - R.E.M.
316 In My Life - The Beatles In My Life - The Beatles V 1 Comment
317 Leave - Matchbox Twenty Leave - Matchbox Twenty
318 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave

Sentimental duet by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue about what seems to be a young couple in love having just found each other. Told from alternating points of view, it is revealed in the third verse the young man is a mentally disturbed man who eventually kills the woman he loves. What makes this so sad is that even at the end of the third verse, it is still a lovesong. The act of killing has something inevitable to it, as if the man had to do it despite truly loving the girl. Unkike much of the "Murder Ballads" album, it never gets violent either. The actual killing is more implied then explicitly described. In the end, the man even lays down a rose on her dead body. The beautiful emotional outfit adds much to the atmosphere. - Martin_Canine

319 Du Erinnerst Mich an Liebe - Ich + Ich Du Erinnerst Mich an Liebe - Ich + Ich
320 Far Away - Nickelback Far Away - Nickelback
