Top Five Saddest Songs

Updated on June 3, 2012

Top Five

This list is made up of the songs that really get to me. I decided after hearing a few of them I'd go ahead and make a hub about this. These are the songs that can touch most people in the saddest of ways but at the end of the day you still want to listen to them over and over again. They also help remind us that no matter what's going on in your life there's always someone that has it worse. So without further ado here's my top five saddest songs.

Seize The Day

5. Seize The Day - Avenged Sevenfold

At first this song wasn't that sad to me, but once you've seen the music video for it you can't help but think of that every time you hear it, making this son number 5 on the saddest list.

"Trials in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you here

Please tell me what we have is real

So, what if I never hold you, yeah, or kiss your lips again?

Woooaaah, so I never want to leave you and the memories of us to see

I beg don't leave me" - Avenged Sevenfold

The Ghost Of You

4. The Ghost Of You - My Chemical Romance

This is by far one of the saddest songs I've heard from MCR and the music video matches the songs sadness in every aspect. At one point this song almost had me in tears.

"Get the feeling that you're never

All alone and I remember now

At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies

She dies

At the end of the world

Or the last thing I see

You are

Never coming home

Never coming home

Could I? Should I?

And all the things that you never ever told me

And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me

Never coming home

Never coming home

Could I? Should I?"

3. Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley & Alison Krauss

Most people that have heard this song know exactly where I'm coming from this this. It's an extremely despressing song and it was put together beautifully. If I'm not mistaken this song really hit good on the radio and I haven't came across anyone that hasn't liked it.

"He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger

And finally drank away her memory

Life is short but this time it was bigger

Than the strength he had to get up off his knees

We found him with his face down in the pillow

With a note that said I'll love her till I die

And when we buried him beneath the willow

The angels sang a whiskey lullaby"

2. Where'd You Go - Fort Minor

I think everyone that has heard this song knows what its about, and its not exactly what you would call the happiest of tunes. This song is not only sad but it also has a message behind it.

"And I'll tell you, I want you to know it's a little f*cked up,

That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',

Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,

Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

I miss you so,

Seems like it's been forever,

That you've been gone.

Where'd you go?

I miss you so,

Seems like it's been forever,

That you've been gone,

Please come back home..."

1. Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

Any song that hits a point such as this one definitely deserves to be number one. In the music video for this song the camera follows around an abused little girl, at the end she ends up dying. This is one of the only songs that has ever made me cry... So in my opinion it's my number one choice for this list.

"Somebody cries in the middle of the night

The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights

A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate

When morning comes it'll be too late"

The End

Well that was my list, if anyone has any songs they want to add feel free to.
