Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 17

321 Vermilion, Pt. 2 - Slipknot

... Are you serious? This song should be at the top 10! Please IF YOU SEE THIS COMMENT LISTEN TO THIS SONG... (especially if you are heartbroken)

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

322 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

323 I Can't Make You Love Me - Bon Iver
324 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.

325 I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1 - Avenged Sevenfold

This is about a former band member named Justin Sane that was on the merge of committing suicide by excessive alcoholic consumption when M. Shadows just happened to walk up on him at that moment. This song is from Justin's point of view, written by Shadows. Every instrument seems to consume you with the feeling of being in that situation. The lyrics and voice M. Shadows does are very thought-provoking, sad, and shameful for themselves. The saddest part of this near 9 minute long song is, with both instruments and voice pitch, seem to be more desperate and hopeless as the song goes on. This song has actually saved a few lives because this is what your mind is going through during suicidal actions, which is one simple word, agony. It just doesn't get more clear than this epic song. - Wannabeguy5

Listen to music you morons this song is actually sad can't you tell

326 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
327 Obstacles - Syd Matters
328 Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson

Great song, just not sad.

329 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

330 Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden
331 Clocks - Coldplay V 1 Comment
332 Bell Bottom Blues - Derek & the Dominos
333 Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin

It's just happens to be a very beautiful song that can really tug on one's heartstrings. It's quite hard to not be moved by it, especially with the acoustic beginning and Robert Plant's tender vocals. - serenajones

334 I Want to Die - Mortal Love
335 Betrayed - Avenged Sevenfold

Its about dimebag darrel death its sad

336 Halo - Beyonce

Really a beautiful song, whenever I listen to it I always get nostalgia about random things I took for granted
