Sad Love Songs

Updated on September 11, 2014

Feeling like a good cry: One of these sad love songs might help

A really super sad love song can grab the heart right out of your chest and leave you gasping for breath.

So here are a few of the best sad love songs out there. These sad songs can have even the staunchest individual's heart thumping a little louder, their eyes sniffling back tears, and arms longing for that oh so sweet adventure that we call romance.

Grab that box of tissues and give them a listen...

Whiskey Lullaby

When is it normal to feel sad?

Sadness is an emotion that we feel when we lose something we are attached to, miss someone or something close to us, are disappointed, lonely, feel sorry for ourselves, or feel sorry for someone else.

Sadness is a perfectly normal reaction to an emotional situation and everyone will experience it at least a few times during their lifetime, it's inevitable. Emotions, and this includes sadness, are just part of being human.

Stay: By Sugarland

In case these sad songs have you starting to sniffle: Which is the softest, strongest tissue?

Consumer Reports decided to put the question to the test; so which tissues are the softest yet strongest tissues out there? In case one of these sad songs has you crying this is what they found out: Puffs Ultra was the all out winner. Puffs Plus Lotion Aloe & Vitamin E also ranked high as well as Kleenex's Anti-viral tissues.

Not A Day Goes By

Kevin Sharp

Kevin was born in December 10, 1970 and deceased April 19, 2014 from past stomach issues and surgeries. Kevin wrote this song about his struggle with a rare type of bone cancer.

Kevin was also played a role as a speaker for the "Make a Wish Foundation".

Nobody Knows It But Me

Crying is actually a very healthy outlet for strong emotions

Holding your emotions in, or using anger to express them, is actually not a very healthy direction to head in. So next time you are feeling frustrated, sad, elated, or angry, go on and have a really good cry. Put on some super mushy gushy sad love songs, pull out the tissues, and let those tears flow. It's good for you.

My Heart Will Go On

So many people are sad during the winter that it is now known as the syndrome SADS.

Season Affective Disorder or SADS occurs when a person does not get an adequate amount of sunlight during the generally gloomier winter months.

Of course there are many other reasons to feel sad and sad songs are only one of them. If you suffer from depression, SADS, or some other unusual form of teary eyed misery then you might want to visit: sad.com to learn more about what makes you tick.

      Maybe I'm a little off cue tonight but for some reason seeing Sylvia's Mother made me smile and I had good feelings all along the way with so many sad love songs....guess I won't be Crying and My Heart Will Go On with an Unchained Melody. So many memories are linked to songs....really love Roy and KD together, I remember being fascinated the first time I saw him on the Ed Sullivan Show. These are classics. Nicely done!

      This is an excellent collection of sad songs! You hit my two favorites, "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and "Unchained Melody". I will never forget hearing "He Stopped Loving Her Today" I still cry at just the memory.

      Hmm... Guess it is good to feel sad at times! Sadness IMO, makes us feel that we are human and vulnerable! Enjoyed the wonderful selections. Thank you! :)

      PS: Time for a happy song! :))

      @ellagis: My mom listened to her a lot too when I was a teen, she has such a unique voice you can always tell when it's her singing.

      Very touching selection! I especially like the voice and the strength of Bonnie Tyler, but maybe it's also because I used to listen to that song when I was a teenager... that is the moment we probably cry more often for impossible, sad loves!

      Great lens, I have a slight tear in my eye, but that's ok, not sad just remembering old times. The song from "Ghost" always gets to me.

      I love the old stereos. It is so nice now that people can pull out their old records and record them on to CD's. Nice to go back in time a little sometimes :)
