The Contenders: Page 23

441 Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave
442 Black Orchid - Blue October
443 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

444 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.

445 Sad Song - D'erlanger

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

446 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.

447 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

448 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 :')

449 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.

450 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!

451 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

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 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

455 All of My Love - Led Zeppelin

This song is about the exact same thing that Tears In Heaven which is #1 is about, Robert Plant lost a child who was only 5 years old, but this song is 10 times better than Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton. It is a disgrace that this is only #100.

The song may pass as not so emotional, until you know it's about Robert Plants sons death.
The song has so much passion, and it should be up in the top 10. - Plonderss

456 Asleep - The Smiths

This is one of my favorite songs of all time, I cannot believe it's not on the top 10!

No clue how this song isn't top 10 this is probably the saddest song of all time

I can't believe this isn't here, this song brought me to tears, because of its meaning and how I relate to it, it is about someone who is depressed, and just wants to go to sleep, to escape from all the harms that he faces everyday, and he doesn't wants to get up, he doesn't wants to face all those horrors once again, even though he knows he has to, this relates and make me think abaout suicide, (the same happened to myself) and the way he tells his loved ones that if he doesn't wakes up, if he dies, to don't feel bad for him "because in the deep of my hearth thast were I want to go"
Ps: I am not a die hard fan of the smiths, actually that's their only song I like

457 I Can't Make You Love Me - Bon Iver
458 Lay Me Down - Sam Smith

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

460 Space Oddity - David Bowie

Super sad it is about a guy lost in space and I believe dies well he does die 685 really
