What's The Saddest Song Ever Written?
I'm not looking for what songs people find sad because they associate it with a person or a life event. I'm wondering what song is the saddest on its own merit.

I really don't know why I'm asking this. I really don't usually go in for "spreading the sadness". What prompted my asking this is: I just cannot listen to Johnny Cash's "Give My Love To Rose" without tearing up. I'm not going to say it's the saddest song in the world. Off the top of my head, I would put "The Ballad of Hollis Brown" by Bob Dylan as a contender for saddest, but that one doesn't make me tear-up.
This is more accurate but less funny than what's his face at the top.
