What's the Saddest Song You've Ever Heard?
#41
Oh, Gloomy Sunday is a very depressing song. I've heard Sarah McLachlan's version before, which is pretty sad too.
When it seems all is forsaken
Listen to me now
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness will show you the light.

Haha I've actually avoided listening to Sarah's version because hearing her voice on that song would be too sad for me to bear  Sick  Her voice is so beautifully tragic, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing for me

Saddest Song is Streets of Heaven by Sherrie Austin. Its about a mother sitting next to her dying child.
Suicide Themes; my favourite is Asleep by the Smiths. And No Surprises by Radiohead. Hurt the Johnny Cash version; Easy Tonight by Five for Fighting and Youth by Daughter

Day after Day (the show must go on) by the Alan Parson's Project

The lines:

Think of a boy with the stars in his eyes
Longing to reach them but frightened to try
Sadly, he'ld say someday, someday...

They crush me every time.

Alan Parson's Project is a good band. I have their CD of Edgar Allan Poe songs.

"Something I Can Never Have" by NIN used to really stick with me.  Different phase of my life though.  First I thought "Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead.  But "Brothers On A Hotel Bed" by Death Cab brings the tears for me.  A bit awkward for me too, because if it does that I want to try to sing it - not sob it.

Perhaps not the saddest I've ever *heard*, but I can scarcely read the lyrics without breaking into sobs: "Days" by The Kinks.  It seems like a tribute to someone who once loved the lyricist (Ray Davies), but it reads like a very personal eulogy.

As far as listening to it . . . a good deal of music by The Kinks has an unassuming, almost goofy sound to it.  Maybe why I'm not more of a fan. Rolleyes

"Just Like Heaven" by The Cure.

The video, very old I know, makes me cry and smile at the same time, in my dreams every night.

This song always made me cry. Amy Lee wrote it in memory of her younger sister, Bonnie, who died at age 3. It's about her coming to the realization that Bonnie is dead.

This, too, shall pass.
