61 Don't Wake Me - Skillet
62 Un-Break My Heart - Toni Braxton

I voted this song because it shouldn't be on 60.

Great.. Now is on 59. That's progress.

Should be way up, the starting of the song is like nothing else in the whole list.

This song is super awesome

63 Here Without You - 3 Doors Down

Seriously! People please listen to the songs because this is just amazing undoubtedly the saddest song EVER! Nobody can disagree with this listen to it... And if you understand the story you'll see what I am talking about...

Makes me miss my ex whom I still love so much. Brings tears to my eyes it still hurts to be without her and my daughter. She stays in my mind.

Love this song but it's so sad and makes your eyes get teary and since I am still in love with the one who isn't anymore it just makes me sad

This song reminds me of a friend that moved away a long time ago. I cared about her so much, and I never got to say goodbye. When I heard this song for the first time it reminded me of how much it hurt...

64 Untitled - Simple Plan

This song explains what I am going through at school right now

Yes I am also edgy teen and this song speaks to me personal

This song is actually very sad when you listen to it/watch the video, but it's been ruined by the popular meme made of it. Still, it's a very beautiful song at it's core.

This is one of my favorite songs.It explains some things in my life.

65 Something in the Way - Nirvana

The fact that Kurt wrote this song from his actual life experiences makes it ever more saddening. He saw himself, As I often do, As his family's "Something In The Way" That ruined everything for them. God Bless You Kurt Cobain :'(

The rhythm is very depressing, especially the bass line and "It's ok to eat fish, cause they don't have any feelings"...

Sigh... I just listed to it right now saddest song yet by nirvana and I would have to also say 2nd is jesus doesn't want me for a sunbeam

I should write something other then the others
but that´┐Ż's such a wonderful song
you get goosebumps or start crying if you hear it

66 Crash - Sum 41

I feel that this song is sadder than 98% of the songs on the list.

It is about the lead singer (Deryck Whibley) experiencing a brutal car crash. He said: "I got out of my car, and just felt lifelessness in the air. One of the people died instantly. When I got home, I wrote the song in minutes. I have a big empty room with a grand piano, and that helped me write the song."

I never cry during songs, but this one knowing what it was about, and the detail in this song made me teary-eyed.

I love this song so muche, and love Sum 41 just as much. I think crash has to be currently my favorite song by them.

The first time I heard this song I cried.

The song reminds me of me and a boy who couldn't get together

67 Like You - Evanescence

I've listened to a lot of sad songs but there is no songs that made me burst in tears for hours like this one. That songs has sad music. The singer's voice is heartbreaking and the meaning of the song is so sad. Up at number 1 - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Evanescence's Amy Lee has a versatile voice just like Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. One thing more, I haven't seen a LP song on this list yet.

68 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
69 My Immortal - Jackie Evancho

I didn't know she covered Evanescence?

70 Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
71 Things Left Unsaid - Disciple
72 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

I love this song with every piece of my soul.
The violin rhythm lulls you into the deep of the song; and its story.
People forget to look further into the meaning of lyrics, and how songs are mostly written from the heart.
This song is probably one of the most devastating songs I've heard; lovers who would have been perfect, but don't cross paths until it's too late - simply poetic.
Although I agree with the top ten listed, I think this masterpiece should definitely be higher up. It is a real tear jerker I have to say

Number 47? This song's story is so depressing but morbidly true. I'm surprised it isn't up there in the top 10

Such a sad song, though amazing just because its not about love or a boyfriend its about not living the life you want and being lonely. Amazing song.

The lyrics are so depressing and raw.

73 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

Listened to it when I was depressed, made me break down and cry. this is a very good emotional song and you can hear the pain in trent reznor's voice, which makes it even sadder.

NIN have the saddest songs of all time. Trent Reznor is a genius and he is very emotional with his songs and lyrics. got me through some hard times. Although "The Great Below" and "And All That Could Have Been" are more sad than 'Hurt'. Glad to finally see a good song on this list.

You can have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt!

Doesn't get any better (or sadder), does it?

While the Johnny Cash version sounds more appealing in some ways, it misses the whole feeling that the original song had. - kempokid

74 This Used to Be My Playground - Madonna

I adore this song. We must say a big "Thank You" to Madonna for this pure masterpiece. Emotional, sad but very beautiful lyrics. This track will never be outdated because we all start as kids, then teens, then mature and then... We recollect the days of our childhood listening to this song - Irina2932

This song always makes me sad. Beautiful lyrics and vocals by Madonna. It will remind you of childhood days, will definetely make you nostalgic. Beautiful song.

Excellent... I am so sad at this time and this song is awesome this song fill my eyes with tears

This song always makes me want to live as a child. I miss my childhood..and I can't go back to it when it had so much memories...

75 I'm Gonna Crawl - Led Zeppelin
76 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

From a completely non biased stand point this should be number 1 without a doubt. Because everyone knows this song no matter who you are and it's universally sad. Sure It hasn't made me cry as much as some other songs, but it's damn close.

BEST SONG EVER, actually in love with this song I watch the film every night I can, and I just sit there and cry to myself, everyone knows I'm in love with this song, and to know that it would be number one would make my day. Its just amazing in my opinion!

It is a very nice song, and we can really imagined and realized if we listened this song when working things.. through this music, it is very lovable.

Awesome song.

77 Why Not Me? - Enrique Iglesias

This song is so sad... Makes you wanna cry. That emotion of a heartbreak is just so beautifully sung by Enrique. I completely weep at the chorus. Certainly not the saddest but it must be in the top 15.

This was the first English song I ever heard... and I instantly fell into the lyrics of it... please vote for it so that at least it comes in top 20

Where is Hero?

Baby I know I could be all you need
Why oh why oh why
I wanna love you
If you only knew how much I love you
Heey

78 The River - Bruce Springsteen
79 Let It Be - The Beatles

I just love anything by The Beatles. Have done since I was little. - Britgirl

I don't think it is really sad, its just slow and peaceful.

There is such a deepness to this song.

How the heck is this so low. - Doom

80 Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
