Probably the saddest song I know is "Gloomy Sunday" by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezso Seress. It is particularly sad (and creepy) because of its history. Seress composed it in the late 1920s because his big love had left him shortly before and because he was deeply worried and saddened by the increasing power of the fascists in his home country Hungary. He later committed suicide because of this love sickness. His ex-girlfriend, saddened by regrets and feelings of guilt also committed suicide a few years after that. Since then, there have been numerous occasions around the world (up to this date) where people were found having committed suicide while this song was playing. There is an urban legend that anyone who listens to this song will eventually commit suicide. Despite of its very sad history, I find it a beautiful song. I listened to it a lot a few years back when I was going through very rough times.
Here an interpretation by Sarah McLachlan
