Saddest songs...

OK, help me come up with a list of really sad emotional songs for a CD I'm making. Right now all I know I'm putting on it is "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen.

"Tomorrow" (both versions), "So Cruel", "One" and "Drowning Man" always bring a tear to me eye...

I know Leonard Cohen as a TON of others that would suffice, but can't remember any of the titles, sorry...

a lot of Chris Isaak stuff
Isaak's version of ONLY THE LONELY off the Baja Sessions album is stellar
most anything off FOREVER BLUE is very sad

I find TRYING TO THROW YOUR ARMS AROUND THE WORLD a very sad song

lord I'm drawing a blank, I used to have my own sad song mix tape.

HIGH AND DRY- radiohead

ON AND ON- by the Long pigs

Catch- The Cure

Ooh that reminds me, I think it was called 'Save Me', it was on the Magnolia soundtrack. Gorgeous.

Hello,

For me, the saddest song ever is The River by Bruce Springsteen. Especially the second verse is so sad!

Quote:

Then I got Mary pregnant
and man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
and the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress
And the ending: "Is a dream a lie when it don't come true, or is it something worse."

SOB!

Not really sad, but very depressing is Time Out Of Mind by Bob Dylan. Lovesick, Not Dark Yet, Trying To Get To Heaven, all quite sad/depressing songs.

C ya!

Marty

LAst Goodbye - Jeff Buckley, always does a number on me.

Angel - by Sara M. Ugh - they played this at a friend of mine's funeral a few years ago - I cant even listen to it.

God has got his phone off the hook, babe...Would he even pick up if he could?

Well-already mentioned is the first one that comes to my mind-'Angel' by Sarah MacLachlan.

I cry so much at that song, that I even cried listening to in on airplane headphones one time, right in front of all those people. Another sad one by her is I Will Remember You.

Also-Tears In Heaven-Clapton

I know this is probably weird, but I think that Green Day song-Time Of Your Life-is very sad-maybe melancholy is a better word.

All Apologies-Nirvana

I'm biased because I'm a huge R.E.M. fan, but Everybody Hurts and (especially) Sweetness Follows and (especially especially) Nightswimming are really sad songs. Especially Nightswimming.
