Top Ten Saddest Songs

The Contenders: Page 9

161 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.

162 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

This song deserves to be at least top 10. The chills that you get from this is song is overpowering. When you fully understand the meaning Avenged Sevenfold was going for and the history behind Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, this song really hits in the heart with emotion

The most emotional part is the piano solo at the end with the backing vocals and the when the swithch happens between the piano and the organ you feel like this person is saying his last words must definitely be in the top 10

Really sad. The lyrics are so chilling and it makes me tear up every time.

One of the saddest songs I've heard should be at least top 10.

163 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

164 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.

165 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.

P.S.
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!

166 How Do You Get That Lonely - Blaine Larsen
167 Remember - Adema
168 The One that Got Away - Katy Perry V 1 Comment
169 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

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

172 With Arms Wide Open - Creed
173 One - Three Dog Night

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. Well he was my boyfriend and said I will never go with a another white boy. Well I like this boy name Ethan. And the last time I introduced myself, my name is anadia

174 Back Around - Demi Lovato
175 Tunic (Song For Karen) - Sonic Youth

Its an eery song about Karen Carpenter and her suffering of anorexia, the video is haunting - nirvanafan1998

176 Uneven Odds - Sleeping at Last
177 7 Things (I Hate About You) - The Hit Crew V 1 Comment
178 Caroline No - The Beach Boys
179 Sky Diver - Eyedea & Abilities
180 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.
