Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 21

401 Nutshell - Alice In Chains

You cannot listen to Nutshell without a feeling of sadness and remorse. The tone of the guitar in this song, as well as the steady drums make the song sound so somber. The lyrics and the vocals that Layne provided for the song show off even more remorse, and even during the end guitar solo you can't help but feel very sad. - NuMetalManiak

Thank you for putting this up... So heartfelt and needs to be in top 5.. Rip layne staley

Even sadder if you see Layne Staley, who was detoriated from heroin and cocaine addiction by that time sing it on the unplugged version.

402 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

At the very top of my playlist... listening to it right now as I type

This song is so sad it should be in the top ten

This and One Man Can Change The World is sad

R.I.P. Paul! This should be on the top five! A couple days ago, when I went to a skating party, and they put this song on! I was resting my legs and then I just got up and skated through the entire song!

403 I'll Be There - Escape Club
404 Njosnavelin - Sigur Ros

This is an extremely pretty song.. The way the guitarist uses a cello bow is just amazing in this song..

405 Epiphany - Staind

It's easy to find a Staind song that's acoustic and driven with sadness, and Epiphany is of no exception. The lyrics in the chorus, as stated, show depression and solitude, and so does the line "so I talk to you like children". The drumming during the chorus is a march-type of drumming of the sad kind. - NuMetalManiak

"its always raining in my head" an anthem for depression and solitude. A tear jerker for self reflection.

406 This Woman's Work - Kate Bush
407 Empty Tears, Empty Hearts - Hale

it's a song from their 2nd album "twilight"
this song really made my eyes pour down tears from what i've experienced before... it the lyrics and the tune shows the real emotion of it's theme - jully

408 Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne

This is so sad! Look up "(Insert fandom name here) sad" on YouTube and the videos that come up almost always have this song playing in the background. I don't see how it isn't 1 or 2, honestly.

Its a sad song because she wrote it for her grandfather who passed away while she was on tour. It makes me cry when I hear it because it reminds me of my mum. :'(

Really why is this sing not on here. I cry to this all the time.

412 My Love, My Life - ABBA

I don't think I have ever listened to this song and not cried. You can hear the utter anguish in jareds voice when he sings it.

There is nothing more emotional than someone telling someone else to stay alive.

This song always makes me tear up. Tyler's voice is so soothing. - littlestpetpet41813
