Top Ten Saddest Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 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.

142 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

Yep. - BlazenSpirit

143 The Way I Loved You - Selena Gomez
144 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

145 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...

146 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.

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

157 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!

158 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.

159 How Do You Get That Lonely - Blaine Larsen
160 The One that Got Away - Katy Perry V 1 Comment
