this song is very haunting and at the same time uplifting. - richt63

145 Mama I'm Coming Home - Ozzy Osbourne 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.

146 Whisky Lullaby - Brad Paisley Whisky Lullaby - Brad Paisley

this song is just not safe for depressed people - Dania0671

how can this not be the saddest song of all time, a man kills himself because he's not with the love of his life, and then she feels so guilty she then kills herself... so sad

'We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night'

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger. Great line to the only song to ever put a tear in my eye... And I love sad songs.

147 Jeremy - Pearl Jam 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.

148 These Are the Days of Our Lives - Queen These Are the Days of Our Lives - Queen

This song always makes me cry... Because it makes me think that time is running out and nothing can be returned... And sooner or later we all must die.

Maybe a goodbye song but very emotional

The saddest Queen song ever made. - aldwych94

151 No One But You - Queen 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...

152 Illegal - Shakira 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

154 Don't Leave Me Now - Pink Floyd Don't Leave Me Now - Pink Floyd
155 When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne

OH my god this song...means so much to me! I still remember the time when I went to school depressed and wanting to die, with this song floating through my mind. That's why I don't listen to it anymore because it reminds me of so much. But I'll watch it again.

Such a beautiful and heart-breaking song

The music video on this made me cry so hard ;-;
