Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Rebecca - Grieves
142 Ill Mind of Hopsin 6 - Hopsin
143 Mama I'm Coming Home - Ozzy Osbourne

Who could've guessed a Ozzy Osbourne song could be so gut wrenching, never mind one written by Lemmy Kilmister. But the truth is, it is.

You made me cry you told me lie, but I can stand to say goodbye.. Mama I'm coming home... Sad song ah...

It's crazy to think there's a sad Ozzy song, but here we are.

144 The Way I Loved You - Selena Gomez
145 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

What makes this song even sadder is knowing it is too late because someone you love is already gone. Just the thought of that feeling makes me wanna cry. Don't even get me started on the absolutely heart-wrenching music video. This definitely belongs in the top 20 at least.

This song is so amazing... Could listen to it forever. - Deathisbeyondcontrol

I love this song. But it made me cry so hard

This song reminds me of me. I hate my life

146 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

Should be much higher

So beautiful

147 No One But You - Queen

A very sad song dedicated to the greatest frontmen in music history

The sad song, dedicated to greatest frontmen ever... just listening it, to the words and knowing that Freddie is there, but not singing...

148 Illegal - Shakira

Sad but very beautiful at the same time. It should be much higher

What a beautiful song! Probably the most touching Shakira song! - ElizaBsST

I would have voted for Si Tu No Vuelves, but Illegal is incredibly beautiful. I love her voice.

149 Empty Sky - Bruce Springsteen V 1 Comment
150 Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails
151 Where'd You Go - Fort Minor
152 Chris Dolmeth - Hopsin
153 Landing in London - 3 Doors Down
154 1000 Years - Just Hannah
155 Your Love - The Outfield
156 Down Where I Am - Demons & Wizards
157 Tell All the World I'm Coming Home - The Street Pop Stars
158 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

THis song is so great, and sad that a kid thought this was the only move he had left. The chorus, "Jeremy spoke in class today" is so chilling" I think by far, it's Pearl Jam's best vocals

Dude how is this not higher it's about a kid who killed himself in class!!!:( - fimbulwinter

How is this not higher? It is about a boy who committed suicide.

159 One Sweet Day - Mariah Carey

There are times when you wish you can still talk to those you've lost. The vocals from Carey and Boyz are powerful.

160 Live To Tell - Madonna

Ok, lets get few things straight. This is not the saddest song on the list. Yes, it is the best song on the list, but the Eric Clapton one takes the prize. The reason I voted for it is because it is much sadder than this used to be my playground (by Madonna also) which is way higher. That song was even wrote for a comedy! Anyway, I think this song should be higher and we need to get it above this used to be my playground.

Not hating on this used to be my playground, great song just not as sad.

This song, literally makes me wanna dance the night away.

Best lyrics and vocals. Nobody could make it sadder than Madojna! Keep going' madge queen!
