Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 23

441 I Can't Make You Love Me - Bon Iver
442 Suicide Season - Bring Me the Horizon

Although I prefer Chelsea smile, I have to admit suicide season is more sad. It should be up in the top ten for sure. The only reason it is so low is because it is not so popular and also because it is metalcore. This song comes from real life experience guys, which makes it even more sad.

This has to be one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. It's about a friend who's dad died, and how a huge part of his friend has died due to it. - somelifeonaplanet

Amazing. sad.

443 High Hopes - Pink Floyd
444 Northern Downpour - Panic! at the Disco
445 Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave
446 Black Orchid - Blue October
447 Hot n Cold - Katy Perry

It's not a sad song!

Coitada ela so queria casar com alguem q nao a aceitava so por causa the roupa credo - Joaopuffle1

448 Dance - Nas

On "Dance, " Nas imagines one last tango with his mother Anne Jones, rhyming "Mom, you could never be replaced. I'd give it all up just to have one more dance. "

Jones lost her battle to cancer on April 7th, 2002.

449 Sad Song - D'erlanger

hear it live, it is slower and sadder than the album version - ronluna

450 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.

451 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

452 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 :')

453 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.

454 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!

455 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

456 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

457 Changes - 2pac V 1 Comment
458 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

459 Voice of the Soul - Death

This is by far the saddest song I've ever heard. I'm in tears by the end of it every time, and it only gets worse when you find out what Chuck was going through as he wrote this.

460 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.
