Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton

Eric clapton wrote about his son, its real, there is nothing more devastating than losing your child, relationships mean nothing compared to looking at yourself in a tiny form,
and having to watch it die+346
I have also lost a child. I have tears and happiness in heaven, can’t wait to see my son again!+254
I think the reason for writing this song is heart rendering.
I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose one of my kids.+142
When my mom told me the meaning behind this song I nearly cried. It’s so sad!new

Hurt – Johnny Cash

This version of the song is simply genius. Though he didn’t write this song on his own, Johnny Cash performed it so deeply that you can feel the emotions in every little sound of this song. With his broken voice he appears as fragile as the meaning of this song is. Beautiful song. – darksky+68
At the bottom of everything, extreme emotion is surprisingly void. Instead, a numb calmness takes over. The only way to know if emotion even exists is to hurt, metaphorically or literally, as Johnny sees all fake people living fake lives, lies called Society. He produces artificial happiness to fit in with society, taking drugs to feel happy. At least he used to use heroin. His old vices and cruelty give him long flashbacks. He can not erase what has happened In the past. He once had problems with these drugs. He wants to give everything he can to his wife, making up for his ruined heart. His fame is not important, because of these bad decisions. He wants to warn them, he will! Hurt them! He thinks he is entirely worthless. If he could have a second chance, he would do it all over again being pure and whole as a man.+3
The one by NIN is good but this one just makes bawl every time.+31
The first song that ever made me cry.new

My Immortal – Evanescence

This song isn’t just sad because of the lyrics but it means an awful lot to me. Every time I here it I cry and think about the memories.+278
I’d never heard this song until I saw this list. It’s truly beautiful. Like a lament to the world. Evanescence made a very strong connection with all those who listen.+167
Really awesome… With the voice of amy lee, and melodic music is expressing it – the pain… Great song+159
A beautiful song. It’s more emotionally powerful and capturing rather than sad, though. Still one of my favorite songs, though! – Leafstar12new

Wake Me Up When September Ends – Green Day

At first, I didn’t know what this song is about. After knowing at the meaning and the reason of Armstrong writing this song. I feel very sorry, the lyrics are so touching. It makes me feel sad every time I listen to it+86
Although it might not be the saddest song of all time, I touched my heart and made me cry, I felt strongly compelled to vote for it. It doesn’t hurt that I love Green Day, either. The meaning bwhined the song made me even sadder. Billie Joe wrote it about his father who passed away in September when he was ten.+55
I love Green Day as much I love this song! One of most touching song ever made by a rock band… Truly amazing!+45
They broke up. I listen to this and cry, so much. – ILikeBVB

Stan – Eminem

You shouldn’t do this, with the emotion, emergeness, EMINEM sings the song… REALLY makes me feel like he’s Stan… VOTE IT…+143
What can be sadder than somebody commiting suicide with his pregnant wife in the car- awesome lyrics.+102
As much as I am not a big fan of Eminem/rap in general, this was a really great song. Unlike the songs above which can lead to sadness, this song has sadness and anger directed from Eminem. You can really hear the depth of emotion in his rapping, and the video shows it a lot.+53
This is sad because it’s considered a song by a no talent – Cush77new

Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

Definitely the best. This song is about the iconic ex-guitarist for Pink Floyd Syd Barret. It is about how though Syd was alive at the time it was as if he was dead. His brain was dead from all the psychedelic drugs he took and he was clinically insane. He lived out the rest of his life in his mothers basement by law. So sad+40
David Gilmour’s voice and the intro riff is pretty depressing.+36
Beautiful and moving. I have cried to this one before… – kingmadmushroom+27
Wish you were here not in top 5

Mad World – Michael Andrews

Such a sad song, most will know this from gears and Dom’s death, gears incorporated this song greatly. Its just such a sad but good song, and at the same time it gives me a good feeling that’s unexplainable.+23
i always struggle not to cry when listening to this song. its just so slow and lilty, and Gary Jules soft, slow, smooth voice just brings the lyrics to life…which sounds kind of ironic really.+11
What!? Half of these songs aren’t even sad (more like dramatic. ) this song is far the saddest I’ve heard.+11
So iconic as well.

Creep – Radiohead

Expresses the feelings that everyone gets at some point in their lives. If you haven’t heard it yet, listen to it and you’ll understand.+25
Here comes my vote… it’s one of the most depressive songs I’ve ever heard.+23
Definitely. One of the most depressing songs I’ve ever heard, too. And come on, everyone’s heard it at some point. A great song to write (or drink) to.+7
Great song for wallowing in self pitynew

Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin

I don’t know why this is even ON this list. How on earth can you take this for a sad song? And if you listen very hard, the tune will come to you at last: To be a Rock, and Not to Roll?
Stairway is, quite possibly, the most powerful rock and roll song of all time. It’s all there, the whole package- I remember it being voted the #1 song by radio station listeners in San Diego (on KGB’s yearly poll back in the day) several years in a row. With good reason. DEFINITELY not SAD or DEPRESSING WHATSOEVER!+83
This song makes me sad but also very excited. I just love it! It’s easily one of the best Rock songs. And the lyrics feel so passionate! If you watch the live version, Robert (the lead singer) says, “You know, I feel like this song’s about hope.” Then the famous guitar riff hums it’s way in and the crowd is bawling and screaming their lungs out. And the live version is amazing as well. But this song overall is just so beautiful that it’s sad. I think that’s why I vote for it. It’s about the natures of life and how precious life itself is! Stairway to Heaven in my opinion is easily one of Led Zeppelin’s best works, and one of the best songs of all time. – MontyPython
This should be in the top 10. It’s so heartfelt. If you don’t agree, listen to the lyrics! It’s just beautiful. – crazyforkiss+20
I don’t know if it’s sad, to be honest. It sounds sad, but some of the lyrics actually sound kind of powerful and uplifting to me. –
