genius work

309 Bad Day - Daniel Powter

What is this song doing in 199?
Take a listen you'll relate

310 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

This song deserves to be at least top 10. The chills that you get from this is song is overpowering. When you fully understand the meaning Avenged Sevenfold was going for and the history behind Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, this song really hits in the heart with emotion

The most emotional part is the piano solo at the end with the backing vocals and the when the swithch happens between the piano and the organ you feel like this person is saying his last words must definitely be in the top 10

Really sad. The lyrics are so chilling and it makes me tear up every time.

One of the saddest songs I've heard should be at least top 10.

317 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

318 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.

319 I Can't Make You Love Me - Bon Iver
320 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
