Classic Sad Songs

Like if I were going to make a CD with really classic all-time sad songs on it, what songs should I include?

Some initial ideas:

--"Space Oddity" David Bowie
--"Dear Prudence" the Beatles
--"Bookends" Simon and Garfunkel
--"River" Joni Mitchell

blur - no distance to run

I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
Oh, I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
Oh, I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
Hey, I won't change direction, and I won't change my mind
How much difference does it make
Mmm, how much difference does it make..how much difference...


I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
how much difference does it make

Which reminds me:

Lou Reed - The Kids (also from Berlin)

Despite the title, I never found Sad Song to be that sad. It sounds more like acquiescence (? is that the correct word?) in retrospect. But the cries from The Kids...

C ya!

here's the alleged story of why the kids did cry so heartbreaking in the lou's song the kids:

lou reed borrowed some of his friends' kids and took them into the recording studio (it could also have been the producer's kids). now, i don't know if the parents knew what he was going to do or not, but he told the all the kids that their parents just got into a big accident and died and would not come back for them. so they all started crying and screaming. he recorded it, took the kids out of the studio, and then gave them back to their parents.
