Everybody Hurts, because they do and it's nice to be reminded of that...

I just remembered another one, Blues Traveler has one on their new CD (which, might I add is FABULOUS). It's #7, but I can't remember the title. It's about their friend who died...it is SO true, every word of it strikes a chord with anybody who has ever lost a close friend.

U2 songs:

-- The First Time
-- Tomorrow (Common Ground Version)

Saddest U2 I can think of.

Melon

------------------
"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

My Beloved Wife by Natalie Merchant always makes me cry.

I cannot even imagine the loss that Eric Clapton must have felt. Now that I have a son, Tears in Heaven is almost too painful for me to listen too.

2. Northern Lad -Tori Amos

3. Landslide -Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac

4. Unbreakable Heart -Jessica Andrews (some country kid)

5. The Difficult Kind -Sheryl Crow

6. Sick of Me -Ani DiFranco

7. Sad Eyes -Bruce ( I don't know why this makes me cry!)_

8. You Don't Love Me Anymore -Tim McGraw (more country)

9. WGRYWH? -U2 (akorse) Lol I'm such a nerd. Why do these random songs make me cry? Now I'm all emotional.

also I think Brandy originally did this song (whatever happened to her?) but the version I know is by Mark Wills (more country ), "Almost Doesn't Count"
OMG I'm gonna cry

You mean the ones that aren't very good?

And be towed by the drag of the moon

I love Counting Crows!

But for me, "Sullivan Street" takes the taco on sadness.
