What's the Saddest Song You've Ever Heard?


"In the Sun" Joseph Arthur
"God Put a Smile Upon Your Face" Coldplay
"Amsterdam" Coldplay
"The Scientist" Coldplay
"Under The Bridge" Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Not Ready Yet" The Eels
"Hate" Cat Power
"Tender" Blur
"Please" U2
"Wake Up Dead Man" U2
The Universe is expanding<br />But I don't feel a damn thing<br />There's nothing you can do about it <br />Keep on dancing<br /><br />- That Handsome Devil, &quot;Loving Parasite&quot;
I actually made a playlist for my ipod called the “saddest playlist in the world”

It includes

George Harrison “Beware of Darkness”
Radiohead “Go Slowly”, “Last Flowers to the Hospital”, “How to Disappear Completely”, “Gagging Order” (SHIT they are a depressing band)
A Perfect Circle “Brena”
Nirvana “Marigold”
Blind Melon “Mouthful of Cavities”
Johnny Cash “Sunday Morning Coming Down”
RHCP "This Velvet Glove"
Amelie Soundtrack: Comptine D’Un Autre Ete L’Apres Midi

And yesterday I cried listening to “Far Behind” by Candlebox. I revert to angsty 90’s ballads when I get in a mood.

one must imagine Sisyphus happy.

Maybe not the saddest song but when you know the circumstance under which it was written:

Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven

My personal favorite though:
Nine Inch Nails - Hurt
Not the 'saddest' but I feel a lot of real suffering come through this music, whole time period had a lot of real soul:

BWJ - trouble soon be over

For more recent misery music this is good, and danceable!:

JD - she's lost control

Not so danceable:

JD - atmosphere
maybe not the saddest...

tom waits 'dead and lovely'

gary jules 'mad world'

simon & garfunkel 'sound of silence'

pink floyd 'goodbye blue sky'

blue october / 5591 'the scar'

blue october 'black orchid'

"If I thought my answer were given to anyone who would ever return to the world, this flame would stand still without moving any further. But since never from this abyss has anyone ever returned alive, if what I hear is true, without fear of infamy I answer you.
- Dante "The Inferno"
I believe music has the power to make you sad even if you have no reason. I avoid this kind of music until I'm already in the shit, then it's catharsis.

Beth Orton - Blood Red River

Radiohead - Exit Music

Leonard Cohen - Dress Rehearsal Rag

Iggy Pop - China Girl

Nine Inch Nails - Eraser
