What Girls & Guys Said
I haven’t heard a sadder song than this in my life I think yet. Both it’s choices instrumentally, melodically, and lyrically are very sadhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/prDoGmY5kj820
The entire 1989 album "Disintegration" by The Cure is a sad album. It's considered a masterpiece and one of the greatest albums ever.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G5YguuNSJg
Don't take my word for it; listen to Kyle from South Park:
To me, the two best songs - and the saddest - are "Prayers for Rain" and the title track, "Disintegration".
"Prayers for Rain"
Here is the whole album in a single video:
... and as a playlist:
This is going to sound crazy because I absolutely love music I love the vibe I love the tone the tune the beat the Rhythm everything about music I love but I cannot tell use the name of one song LOL and you would think that I would know the words to a song If I really like it I mean I do know some words but it all Blends into a Harmony into one emotional beat in rhythm and that's all I have to hear I don't have to hear the words to make it a sad song the musical tell me how sad it really is if that makes sense10
Since I'm kinda melancholic by nature, I think I know too many sad songs, lolhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/GiLYto-PhRY
Guess can start with a classic
This song was sad on it's own, even more sad now that he took his life, being so relatable to anyone who have struggled with suicidal thoughts, feeling like they are the only that cares in a world that is so cold.https://www.youtube.com/embed/Tm8LGxTLtQk
Next one is from one of my favorite bands, it's heavy on metaphors and symbolism, but I really love what they did with both the music video and the lyrics in this one.https://www.youtube.com/embed/MKk1u5RMTn4
Can throw in a sad one from my country, since probably less known. This one is just hauntinghttps://www.youtube.com/embed/BwdtfuKkN3E10
Disturbed - The Sound Of Silencehttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4
R. E. M. - Everybody Hurts

Nothing Compares 2 U' by Sinéad O'Connor10
When I first heard why Eric Clapton wrote "Tears in Heaven," it gave me understanding that I did not have before. Here's a explanation from google:
"The song is a tribute to love's lasting powers and a lament for the death of Clapton's four-year-old son, Conor, who died on 20 March 1991 when he accidentally slipped from the 53rd-floor window of a New York City apartment building." I also have a four year old son and cannot imagine what that would be like.
"Wings For Marie, pt 1" and "10,000 Days (Wings, pt 2)" by Tool.
His mother was paralyzed from a stroke for 27 years and some change (roughly 10,000 days) and passed away. The song and album title is a tribute to her, and does a complete 180 from the last song he wrote about her, "Judith" by A Perfect Circle, which was strongly critical to her faith: "Fuck your God, your Lord, your Christ," "Praise for one who left you broken down and paralyzed. He did it all for you."10
I mean the video helps this a lot to be sad but it is the saddest song.https://www.youtube.com/embed/RVsZvxY-coc
Some songs need context. Much to the same of Parasyte The Maxim, Next to you. And then of course the Tokyo Ghoul, Unravel.
Then there is silent hill songs which are all ambience within sadness and darkness.
A recent thing would be League of legends Arcane, Goodbye. I love What could of been too but Goodbye wins me I think.11
These are the ones I know >https://www.youtube.com/embed/vrr5hlSPVMIhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/zqUDRkO93DAhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/0Bg6LCg73XE10
It's not the saddest, but it's up there.
Also a fellow Melanie Martinez fan, I see.11
I avoid sad songs like the plague.
I much prefer happy songs like the one I put in this myTake :)
Happiness - What It Really Is0
hang by matchbox 20 and memories by maroon 5https://www.youtube.com/embed/kfjZs5tJRCUhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/SlPhMPnQ58k
i lean more toward matchbox 20, rob thomas is a under rated talent as a writer0
I had to dig through my playlist. I think most of my favorites aren't so sad. This one seems a bit tragic and hopeless though:https://www.youtube.com/embed/aL4EMYzazgM11
Avicii wake me up
little Wayne I feel like dying
korn coming undone
evanescence bring me back to life
Kevin gates reasonable suspicion
Nothing the script
tracy chapmen give me one reason
hank Williams I’m so lonesome
johnny mandel suicide is painless
J. cole Can I holla at ya
Biggie smalls suicidal thoughts
The killers White demon love song
G-eazy me, myself and I
And Justin Bieber baby listen to it enough and you will cry 😂11
I think No Tears Left to Cry by Ariana Grande is both sad and hopeful. Also a lot of folk ballads are very sad (Mary Hamilton by Joan Baez because the girl gets executed for killing her baby at the end).10
I still have a hard time listening to this song without getting emotional. The lyrics hits. Hard.https://www.youtube.com/embed/enu8wwbDVDM10
It's amateur hour over here, these new songs aren't sad. Here's parts of two great classical music pieces from the earlier part of the 1900's, used in two great movieshttps://youtu.be/kRCubAtPiKg
Michael Longcor's "This Old Dog"; you can probably guess why. Also Billy Joel's "Leningrad". And a good third of all Irish folk songs; like Chesterton said, "all their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad".0

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen is super sad if you listen to the lyrics
I didn't realize it was that dark
Yeah check it out: m. youtube. com/watch? v=axAtWjn3Mfl
Thanks, will look into it more
Did you ever check out the lyrics of Bohemian Rhapsody?
Oh yeah, I didn't realize how dark it was when I was younger
Unfortunately, it has an added layer of sadness because I lost my best friend in a way that mimics the song and we both loved that song while he was alive
God, it must have been awful losing him
Yeah, it was. I was 17 and he was 16. I gave his eulogy at the funeral
I bet he appreciated it from you, sorry for your loss
I appreciate the condolences but such is life
Life really is a something 🙂
It sure is but I don't think I'd want it to be boring and uneventful
True, it would be boring
@HeartFullOfGlue thanks for MHO
