Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 23

441 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.

442 She's Leaving Home - The Beatles 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

443 Quasimodo - Shinee 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 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

447 Helena (So Long & Goodnight) - My Chemical Romance 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.

448 The Best of Times - Dream Theater 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

449 100 Years - Five for Fighting 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.


450 Changes - 2pac Changes - 2pac V 1 Comment
451 Run - Snow Patrol 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

452 Victim - Avenged Sevenfold 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.

453 Nan's Song - Robbie Williams Nan's Song - Robbie Williams
454 Need You Now - Lady Antebellum 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 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead. 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.
