Oh gosh this song is romatic song that George Michael wrote! :-)

322 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

The song tells such a sad story. Kelly clarkson brings so much emotion to the already sad song. Makes me cry every time I sing it

This is the song that makes me cry every time I watch it and it's just so heart breaking... Poor kids.

A song about a girl that lives the experience of the problematic marriage of their parents. Such a sad song...

I heard this song not long after my cat died and I have broke into tears every time I hear this song since.

329 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

330 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

331 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
332 Obstacles - Syd Matters
333 Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson

Great song, just not sad.

334 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

335 Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden
336 Bell Bottom Blues - Derek & the Dominos
337 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

338 I Want to Die - Mortal Love
339 Betrayed - Avenged Sevenfold

Its about dimebag darrel death its sad

340 Clocks - Coldplay V 1 Comment
