Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 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.

142 Empty Sky - Bruce Springsteen V 1 Comment
143 Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails
144 Where'd You Go - Fort Minor
145 Chris Dolmeth - Hopsin
146 Landing in London - 3 Doors Down
147 1000 Years - Just Hannah
148 Your Love - The Outfield
149 Down Where I Am - Demons & Wizards
150 Tell All the World I'm Coming Home - The Street Pop Stars
151 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.

152 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

153 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!

154 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.

155 How Do You Get That Lonely - Blaine Larsen
156 The One that Got Away - Katy Perry V 1 Comment
157 The Unforgiven - Metallica

This one I use to enjoy, my native language is Spanish, and I loved the rhythm and the entire song, then, after a 5 year stay in the USA, after becoming bilingual and returning to my country of origin, Argentina, I put the song in YouTube, I was alone, then, tears just come to my eyes and man, I'm not used to cry, but I felt SO identified with the lirycs in this one. it should be at least in the top ten.

Kill whoever made me scroll to the six hundreds to vote for this

not even in top 100?!?!?!?
this should be in the top 10! - ShahryRKnoT

158 Starry Starry Night - Jackie Evancho

From her "Prelude To A Dream" album. Repeated on occasion in concert. No one does it like her. - Trancas

Also known as "Vincent". Just performed in concert in Las Vegas.

159 Travelin' Soldier - Dixie Chicks

It made me cry I can relate to the girl
