Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 For the Love of a Daughter - Demi Lovato

Such a sad song! I love her and I'll support her emotions. Her love for her father is undeniable

122 Back to December - Taylor Swift

So boring it's depressing.

123 The Way I Loved You - Taylor Swift
124 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

It's not the lyrics. It's just the tune and Whitney's powerful voice that makes this song sad. Rest In Peace Whitney.

Whitney's powerful voice with great emotions

So beautiful

i agree

126 Lua - Bright Eyes
127 Chicken Wire - The Pernice Brothers
128 Ayer - Enrique Iglesias
129 Bad Girl - Madonna

I cried when I saw the video. I felt sorry for Madonna's character. The song is great though

130 Lightning Crashes - Live

The song was dedicated to Barbara Lewis, but it also held another meaning. It could have also meant something about an old mother dying while at the same time another mother gives birth to a new child in the world (a new mother cries, an old mother dies, as well as the angel opens her eyes). Truly spiritual and sad in a way. - NuMetalManiak

This is a deep and truthful view of the life cycle. It does make me cry if I indulge it.

131 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

This song truly captures the feelings of betrayal, overwhelming despair, anger and sadness that one can only hope never to experience. This song, I am certain, has been somebody's last song...

132 Pieces - Anthrax

This song is a tribute to Frank Bello's brother it's a beautiful song and deserves more recognition - christangrant

133 Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene V 2 Comments
134 Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me - The Smiths

Probably one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. It is a brilliant portrayal of what it feels likes to feel utterly unloved and lonely.

This should be much higher up. Somehow The Smiths captured the despair of loneliness perfectly.

135 Cryin' for Me - Toby Keith
136 Scars - Papa Roach
137 Manta Ray - J. Ralph & Antony
138 Your Star - Evanescence

It's a soft song. I don't know why, but I always love songs with only Piano

139 Rebecca - Grieves
140 Ill Mind of Hopsin 6 - Hopsin
