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.

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

Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7g2IlaDLV...re=related

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

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R8RuOagz...re=related

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

JD - she's lost control

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVc29bYIvCM

Not so danceable:

JD - atmosphere

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.
