Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 21

401 Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer - Stevie Wonder

I simply adored this song, until I realized how very depressing it is. Its still very beautiful though

402 Daddy - Korn

It's about the singer's experience of being molested as a child. How can you get any more sad than that? That's horrifying!

403 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!

404 The End of the World - Skeeter Davis
405 Nobody Home - Pink Floyd

Great, and sad, song. One of the greatest bands

406 These Are the Days of Our Lives - Queen

This song always makes me cry... Because it makes me think that time is running out and nothing can be returned... And sooner or later we all must die.

Maybe a goodbye song but very emotional

The saddest Queen song ever made. - aldwych94

Yep. - BlazenSpirit

407 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

. I'm surprised this amazing song wasn't on the list. It is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard. It is about the narrator, who falls in love with a girl. They are so in love, and they have a child. But, the narrator soon finds out that his one true love is sick, and only has weeks to live. It is one of the most passionate, heart-wrenching songs ever. Please listen to it. And vote. For this song is truly amazing, and incredibly sad.

I've only recently become a fan of this band and I can see me still being one in the future but this song hit me so hard and I can tell you that's if you haven't heard this amazing song you need to go and listen to it now.

I still cry every time I hear this song. It breaks my heart, because it could be a possible situation in anyone's life.

Only song that has put me close to tears

408 Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word - Elton John
409 Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

This song gets to you man

I can't belive this song is this far down the list. it's really one of the saddest ones out there. I first discovered it off Greys anatomy and honestly, when I lost my best friend to cancer, I used to listen to this song on repeat and lay in my roof staring at the stars. it really helps, it just sparks a nerve that makes you remember everything. the acoustic version is very good too, it's just a good song overall. it really just brings tears to my eyes because it reminds me of her. I miss you Ariel.

410 Deep Down - The Country Funkin Do-Dahz

awesome vocal by Ronnie Domp, gives me a shiver!

411 My Love, My Life - Abba
412 Truce - twenty one pilots

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

Finally a TØP song! This deserves so much higher than #417! This song is so sad, it's relaxing and has an amazing message. This will forever be one of my favorite songs.

413 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.

414 This Woman's Work - Kate Bush
415 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

416 Little Susie - Michael Jackson

I bawl my eyes out every time I hear this. The best MJ song of ALL TIME! So beautiful, and so heartbreaking at the same time.. And such a perfect melody..!

417 Nothing Compares 2 U - Sinead O'Connor

This is the saddest song ever. You can feel her pain.

*sniffle* that song always gets to me every time I hear it - Celestius

Beautiful raw can't be beautiful

418 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

"Good bye everybody, I've got to go. Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth. Mama I don't wanna die, but sometimes wish I was never born at all" that line made me cry, nothing described my feelings at the time like that line that

If you listen to the first 2 minutes of it, it makes you wanna cry. The song isn't really the best but gets better. It's still depressing!

What this is bohemian rhapsody

419 Addict with a Pen - Twenty One Pilots

Shoot, a lot of emotional people listen to twenty one pilots, I am not one of those people, but this song...this one emotional punch...I was shocked to not see this anywhere on the list - Random_Guy1

This song is pretty powerful but honestly listening to any twenty one pilots song is an emotoinal roller-coaster


420 I'll Be There - Escape Club
