The Contenders: Page 9

161 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.

Well I lost my best friend in fourth grade and every time I hear or humm that song I just think of him. I bust out into little tears. I'm in seventh grade now.

172 Caroline No - The Beach Boys
173 Sky Diver - Eyedea & Abilities
174 Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely - Backstreet Boys

This is Backstreet probably at its best. A heart touching song that will surely take you to another world of your own... A must track to be included in the list.

What's make this song special is that every one understand it in his way

It is sad in a way. The boys dedicated this to Denniz Pop. I dedicate this song to my late dog Milton and cat Lily and 3 of my grandparents.

175 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

This song makes me cry every time. We have to sing this song for our school's winter concert, and I try to hide my face, because I cry.

This song was playing in watchmen during the comedians funeral. I love this song, it's so nice.

Should be much higher. Probably not the saddest song I know but definitely the darkest.

Hello darkness my old friend...

179 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead.

This is way better than "Creep" and its in a tie between "Steet Spirit" (Fade Out) just the reference:

"She Looks like the real thing
She taste like the real thing
My fake plastic... love
If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time...
All the time"

More sad than "Creep" that's for sure.
