439 Mushi - Dir en grey

This is Kyo's poetry at its best! I'm not the type to get sad when listening to music, but holy crap! I was blown away when I was listening song while reading the lyrics, I had a tear drop down. It made me understand Kyo a lot more and his character. His voice is astounding! He put so much emotion into his words. Die's amazing acoustic works, and Kaoru's solo at the end were phenomenal, Shinya's drumming was great for such a depressing song. Toshiya's bass is amazing as ALWAYS. Kyo gets really emotional live too. This is the best live Japanese song. Period. - MeowMix

Blitz 5 days performance is heart wrenching. You can never be too sure what Kyo's lyrics are about as his use of words can give songs multiple meanings but the doom and self hatred feelings I get this song is extremely saddening. Performed with so much emotion that completely tops any other performance I've heard.

440 She's Leaving Home - The Beatles

For me, part of what makes a song sound "sad" is in the music. The melody in this is total melancholy. While the song is sort of about a woman's emancipation, that freedom was needed after a life of loneliness. Then there's the point of view of the parents, who are left with nothing but loss. I would rank this song MUCH higher.

I have no idea why this is so low. This should be #1

How is this not in the top 10
