Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 23

441 Quasimodo - Shinee

This song is very sad. It is in Korean but, the singing is beautiful! If you know the meaning behind the story of Quasimodo then this song will really touch you. When ever I hear this song I get really sad! I cry every time I think about what the meaning of the song is. This is a really good song and, very sad.

Very sad story behind the song. No one would want to be in a one sided relationship.

I cry every time when I hear this song

442 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!

#437? No. This is at least top 20! The emotion! The lyrics! It's amazing! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

443 Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift

I love this song. The video is prim as a ghost wandering through the ruins of district 12 and comforting Katniss and Peeta. Not to mention the music is beautiful

Love this song truly beautiful, Taylor rocks!

Truly touching :')

444 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

In a way, this is much more sadder than Blackbird, especially since Mark Tremonti's mother is the one being addressed to in the song. Like Blackbird, it starts the same way it ends, but with a unique riff not heard anywhere else in the song. The vocals in the verses are very well expressed with grief and sorrow as does the chorus and bridge, while the instrumental parts of the song drive it through. - NuMetalManiak

This song is so low in the top just because alter bridge is not very famous. But trust me this is sad.

If you have lost someone really dear, this song will break all your emotional barriers.

445 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

446 Difficult - Eminem

This is a great tribute to Proof who sadly died in 2006 this is an unpopular song, but without a doubt it is the saddest and well worded sad song ever please vote.

This is really... Really sad, it hasn't got enough popularity for the song adequecy! Listen to it!

447 Ronan - Taylor Swift

Seriously why isn't this song number 1 saddest song? Well It should be number 1 because It is so sad and if you know what the song is about you would be crying for like a year! This song is about a little 4 year old boy who died of cancer 2 days before his birthday :'( it seriously breaks my heart

This sad just makes me want to go in a dark corner, and curl up into a ball. The lyrics are so beautiful and so meaningful, if you don't at least feel sad while listening to this song, then you're a robot. This should definitely be in at least the top five songs.

I don't like Taylor swift at all but this is definitely a very sad song and it deserves more credit then it gets

I actually had trouble sleeping the night I decided to watch the video. JUST SO SAD!

And y'all still wanna say "Happier beats of T-Swift? " - Katanaceilingfan

448 Helena (So Long & Goodnight) - My Chemical Romance

Gerard wrote this song about the loss of his grandmother. 'enough said but I'll go on. Not only is he extremely sad, but you can see him go through the seven stages of grief. So basically, you feel his pain from all angles.

449 The Best of Times - Dream Theater

Its about mike portnoys father how he love him and then he died its one of my favorite. Dt songs

450 100 Years - Five for Fighting

How is this so low? This song is about a guy's life story. As he is lying on his deathbed he is telling a grandson/young person to make the most of their life because it is short. I literally was sobbing when I watched the video for this song.


451 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

452 Changes - 2pac V 1 Comment
453 Run - Snow Patrol

Every time I listen to "Run", it disheartens me but simultaneously gives an odd feeling of rapture/elation. It's such a masterpiece, not just a song that directly speaks to you - no - it somehow touches something inside one's soul/mind which really drives into a nostalgiac mood

454 Victim - Avenged Sevenfold

Saddest song by Avenged Sevenfold without a doubt.

This song reminds me of my friend that's involved in a car accident. "I'm missing you..." feels deep and sad. Love how they sing it.

455 Nan's Song - Robbie Williams
456 Need You Now - Lady Antebellum

Great song and it's great if you want someone back it's good for thinking and recalling memories. Vote best. thanks X

457 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead.

This is way better than "Creep" and its in a tie between "Steet Spirit" (Fade Out) just the reference:

"She Looks like the real thing
She taste like the real thing
My fake plastic... love
If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time...
All the time"

More sad than "Creep" that's for sure.

Great track by Sam Smith_ This really is a beautiful slow Sad song

Great and sad song - Danguy10

459 Vincent - Don McLean

This depressing song about Vincent Van Gogh never fails to make you feel melancholy. The hauntingly beautiful lyrics and McLean's emotional performance always brings a tear to my eye. - Spark_Of_Life
