Wake up dead man-- "I'm fucked" song

The First Time-- Saddest psalm/parable

The Sweetest Thing-- Probably the one that connects to me the most... because it describes one-sided relationships.

How can it not be "Mothers of the Disappeared"?

I am going with Love is Blindness- very emotional and has a very sad vibe to it.....but then again there are so many sad U2 songs I think a very hounourable mention should go to (and from my skimming of this thread I dont think it has already been mentioned) Van Diemen's Land- just Edge, an electric guitar and very sad lyrics, maybe I can connect to it a bit more so seeing as though I am Australian and know all to well about our sad convict past!!!

My choice as saddest is Mothers of Disappeared, no doubt, everything in that song, lyrics and melody, is heartbreaking.
Somehow nowadays I find Take Today sad as well, its the last track on disc 2, Salome bootleg, the version with vocals. Not reasonable explanations, more a feeling stuff.

SBS and Please
The whole idea behind them is just sad.
IGWSHA, So Cruel
It's almost hard to explain why these are sad.
Definately MOTD, WOWY, SIAM. etc
The you have the one-sided relationship songs:
AIWIY, Sweetest Thing, you get the idea
Pride makes me sad. The fact that he was assasinated is what does it. But the dram still lives on..
