this is a thread where everyone names the sadest songs ever heard!

no spam.

I'll name the first:
wrote a song for everyone - C.C.R
don't ask. I think the tune is sad.
I think the saddest (sadest? saddest?) song I've heard yet has to be Alice in Chains - Nutshell (Acoustic)

EDIT: You have a poll? Thats kind of useless if listing song genres...

horazonblade, you are one of the reasonable/intelligent people on this forum... - JewMasatFlex
Imagine if you were a drummer, and you accidentally picked up two magic wands instead of sticks. There you are, keeping the beat, the next thing you know, your bass player turns into a can of soup.

I didn't vote, because imo the saddest is goth.

Terribly when - the last dance
Breath - the last dance
Even angels fall - the cruxshadows
You will find me as cute as your favourite nephew
Until I break your knees with a baseball bat
You will find me so kind, I'll be someone you like
Until I brush your teeth with a razorblade
To pick from the poll, Motown - What becomes of a broken hearted.

Other - Against me! - 8 full hours of sleep
Atmosphere by Joy Division also makes me choke up everytime I hear it..
Wade in the water, child.
Space oddity-David Bowie(poor major )
Hurt-Johnny Cash
Space-dye Vest by dream theater is pretty sad sounding.
Imagine by John Lennon.

Mainly because it'll never happen. Hence the imagining.
Maggot Brain by Funkadelic one of the saddest songs I have heard, not a song just a solo, but that solo is very very very sad, great solo though.
anybody wanna put anything here just let me know
Jeff Buckley's version of Halleluljah. And alot of classical music.

Boots Of Spanish Leather - Bob Dylan, ...Just a lonely song. Amazing but I find it sad.

....actually alot of Dylan has a sad theme.

EDIT: as well Here Today - Paul McCartney...... almost brings a tear to my eye.
Seasons In The Sun
I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger......a man on the move and just sick enough to be totally confident.

Well "Tears in Heaven" is a song that everyone likes but no one here will actually admit to it, because they view it as the song that 14 year olds talk who say they like Eric Clapton - know.

I like it, though, and I know much more than that from Eric Clapton. But anyway, Ill definitely agree with the people throwing "Space Dye Vest" into the mix. I think one of the sadder songs Ive heard would be "Are You There?" by Anathema, "Another Permanent Address" by Chroma Key, and there's some others.
Hallelujah- Buckley
some parts of Desolation row-Dylan
some Joy Division
We train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won't allow them to write "f*ck" on their airplanes because it's obscene!
You can't put your arms around a memory - Johnny Thunders
I only wrote this song to you - Johnny Thunders
Dee - Randy Rhoads
Million Miles Away - Hanoi Rocks
I won't back down (This is more beatiful than sad to me though) - Tom Petty's version

Disappear is much more depressing...
Hurt - Johnny Cash
Hate Me - Blue October (everytime I hear this song, I just don't feel like doing anything else)

Blues... Or a lot of John Lennon. Tears in Heaven, Last Kiss are also very sad. Anything off of 'Dirt' by Alice In Chains is sad. Hurt is also amazing.
Alice In Chains - Would?
Ozzy - Goodbye to Romance
Pantera - Floods
Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan
Opeth - Ghost of Perdition

"Hurt" isn't by Johnny Cash. It was written by Trent Reznor in 1993.

But, yes, it is a very sad song. I think "Patience" by G'N'R is pretty sad as well, especially after getting out of a relationship.
