Probably Old Man by Neil Young. It's mostly due to the tone of the song, Neil's voice, lyrics...though...it's still one of my favorite songs of all time.
We had just left our daughter in her little room, on her own, in London, as she began her nurses training. A friend had already been through this with their daughter, and warned us not to turn the car radio on as we travelled home. We were already feeling upset as we left her and, forgetting what our friend had said, we turned on the radio to give us something else to think about.
We should have listened to our friend because a song called “Butterfly Kisses” sung by Cliff Richard came on (This was a cover version). The song is about a little girl and her changing relationship with her father as she grows up, and eventually becomes a woman and leaves home.
A few years later when our daughter got married, she had this song playing as she walked up the aisle. So what was our saddest song ever now brings some great memories.
Butterfly Kisses was a sad song for personal reasons, but, purely for the lyrics, "Luka" by Suzanne Vega is probably on of the saddest songs I have heard as it is about child abuse, and there is no happy ending to the song.
Billie Holiday Gloomy Sunday Lyrics
Sunday is gloomy,
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you?
well, 'Glitter in the Air" by Pink when I first heard it made me cry, but at that time I was going through a break up so its understandable..
But the saddest song that I know about is, 'Who Painted the Moon Black?' by Nia Nell, a South African artist, this song was about a girl who had gotten raped and her feelings, its very symbolic in the lyrics so you wouldn't really know what the song is about unless you did research about it.
